Speaker cone material or diaphragm material is the most important part of any speaker. The speaker cone material helps speaker cone in converting voice coil vibrations into audible sound. The speaker cone material helps in dispersion of sound frequencies throughout the listening environment. The speaker cone material possesses various properties, such as low mass, low coloration and controlled resonance. Polypropylene was used as a speaker cone material in the past. However, now, it has been replaced with a variety of materials, such as aluminum, kraft paper and other polymers. Metal speaker cone materials provide high durability and prevent dynamic compression and distortion. Some speaker cone materials are manufactured using the precision process, where they are subjected to high temperatures and pressures. The precision process used for the manufacturing of speaker cone materials is known as injection molding. Speaker cone materials manufactured using the injection molding process are superior quality speaker cone materials and thus, are more expensive than other cone materials. Depending on their end use, speaker cone materials are available in different types. Speaker cone materials find end-use applications in car speakers, home theater speakers, double speakers, TV speakers, multimedia speaker cones, etc.
The growth of the automotive industry is expected to drive the speaker cone materials market. The growth in the consumer electronics industry is expected to drive the market for speaker cone materials in near future. Aluminum speaker cone materials are expected to witness high growth as they provide better sound quality compared to other speaker cone materials. Use of speaker cone materials, such as titanium, silk or aluminum, in tweeters is the new trend nowadays. The high cost of some speaker cone materials is expected to slow down the growth of the speaker cone materials market during the forecast period. Some of the speaker cone materials, such as paper, absorb moisture from air and lose their original properties, which is another factor expected to retard the sales growth of speaker cone materials.
