With the growing researches proving the perks of hearing songs, such as it lowers blood pressure, the clamor for FM transmitters is on rise, also on the back of easy availability and outstanding compatibility with car stereo system and home audio systems. It has become an established trend to use personal FM transmitters for playing transportable audio devices on car radios lacking Bluetooth audio connectivity or an Auxiliary ‘AUX’ jack. FM transmitters’ ability to broadcast a static audio source, such as a television or a computer at home, is a key factor leading to the growth trajectory of FM transmitters market.
Since an FM transmitter transmits over the air generally with very low power, the quality gets severely hit by the surrounding radio stations. The FM transmitters’ vulnerability to experience interference due to myriad factors such as landscape, weather conditions, and topology, and landscape, has been prompting the FM transmitters’ manufacturers to incorporate advancing technology in the existing FM transmitters.
Furthermore, the prevailing heavy regulations on radio broadcasts across the world continue to drive FM transmitters’ manufacturers to raise their game by constantly customizing their products. An FM transmitter is bound to carry “FCC Declaration of Conformity” in the U.S., and such obligations may threaten the adoption of FM transmitters by a notable margin.
Global FM Transmitters Market: Introduction
FM transmitter is a gadget or device that turns the music system or music device into a mini radio station. FM transmitters can easily be plugged into any device’s charging point or earphone socket and then transmit the music being played on the chosen FM radio frequency. The user can simply tune in via the car radio. FM transmitters are wireless device and are compatible with all cars but they have poor sound quality and interferences. But the recent models have a better sound quality and some of them can even charge your device. These FM transmitters are available in numerous variants. Many transmitters have 3.5mm connections that can easily plug into any music player’s headphone socket. Such transmitters are normally powered through batteries, but few of them get charged from the 12V socket of the car. Moreover, some particular models come with connectors, such as lightening connector, which also charges the music device. Even though sound quality can be patchy in some models, the FM transmitters are still a viable option for older cars without hard wired connections or Bluetooth.
Global FM Transmitters Market: Dynamics
FM transmitters just need FM radio on cars for functioning, which is one of the key factors driving the growth of the FM transmitters market. Almost all FM transmitters are universally compatible with all the devices that possess a 3.5mm headphone socket, which is another factor fueling the growth of the FM transmitters market. Moreover, some models of FM transmitters are capable of transferring audio files from other applications such as Spotify or Google Maps, hence this factor is anticipated to boost the growth of the FM transmitters market.
FM transmitters can suffer from noise interferences which affects the sound quality and is one of the key factors hindering the growth of FM transmitters market. The user cannot select the music being played with car controls as the FM transmitters do not integrate with car controls, which is another factor restraining the growth of FM transmitters market. FM transmitters with more features typically cost higher, which is one of the factors hindering the growth of the FM transmitters market.
