A wireless microphone refers to a microphone that operates without a cable and directly connects to the amplifying or sound recording equipment. It is also called as a radio microphone that has a small and battery power-driven radio transmitter and facilitates the transmission of audio signal by radio waves to the receiver unit that recovers the audio. A cable connects other audio equipment and the receiver unit. Wireless microphones are extensively used in television broadcasting, entertainment industry and public speaking which enable interviewers, public speakers, entertainers and performers to move freely. Wireless microphones eliminate the trip hazards caused by cables at the performance stage. Additionally, these microphones provide high comfort and mobility in comparison to wired microphones. Thus, wireless microphones are largely preferred by consumers. These microphones come in various shapes and sizes and can be worn in the ear or waist of the user enabling a hands free movement. A wireless microphone uses Wi-Fi networks, radio frequencies or Bluetooth for communication and connectivity.
The market for wireless microphones is significantly driven by high adoption for smartphones, other portable devices, and intense investments in research and development for wireless audio and increasing adoption of these devices in offering infotainment services. Also, rising use of wireless microphones in commercial applications such as events, call centers, shows and others are propelling the market growth. However, strict government norms for regulating frequency range of wireless devices are the major restraints to the market growth. Continuous use of wireless microphones for 8 hours at over 85 decibels can have adverse effect on the user’s hearing ability, which is further cutting down the adoption of wireless microphones. With the rapid advancements in technology, remote accessibility and ease in portability among customers have generated significant opportunities in the wireless microphones market.
