2012-05-31 14:41:07 - Portable Media Players in India - Market Report - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
Mobile phones today incorporate FM radio, radio recorders and increased memory in which numerous songs can be stored. This is making the use of a separate portable MP3 player redundant as almost everybody in urban areas possesses a mobile phone.
Apple India is the leader with around 955,000 units sold in 2010. This is because Apple enjoys a first-mover advantage in new-age portable media players. It was the first to launch portable MP3 players in India and people still associate iPod as being synonymous with portable MP3 players.
In terms of number of units sold, portable media players are expected to register an 11% CAGR in the forecast period. This is a significantly better performance than the negative -9% CAGR recorded in
the review period. This is because before the review period the unit prices of portable MP3 players were so high that sales started from a very low base and so it took time to compensate the decline in other portable media players.
Portable media players were also only introduced in 2004 and so this category was growing from a small base, but the decline in other media players was very sharp because of the presence of FM radio on mobile phones. However, by 2010 the decline in other portable media players was compensated for by growth in portable MP3 and multimedia players. E-readers have also been introduced to the market so that portable media players is expected to witness a strong double-digit growth rate in the forecast period.
