Moreover, the demand for improved user interfaces is growing rapidly, especially for mobile phone users, who resist to rely on touchscreen features of their smartphones.

Mobile Phone Accessories Market Structure Analysis
The global mobile phone accessories market is highly fragmented. With the presence of a large number of players manufacturing mobile phone accessories in Asian markets, companies based in Asia are estimated to lead their way in the global market as well.
Trend of Advanced Technology Enabled Headphones Driving Competition
Companies are developing mobile phone accessories to turn them into smart audio systems and smart computers. However, the development of mobile phone accessories, such as headphones in today’s competitive markets is extremely challenging. Companies are thus focusing on developing innovative wireless headphones with advanced sound quality and noise cancellation technologies to offer superior listening experiences to users. Active noise-cancelling headphones electronically remove the unwanted noise and eliminate distractions that are coming from the surroundings.
- For instance, Apple is dramatically upgrading its wireless AirPods headphones with noise cancellation and water-resistant technologies.
- In 2018, Sony Corporation introduced mid-range wireless noise cancelling headphones, ‘WH-CH700N’, with wireless connectivity for its users.
Next-gen Wireless Charging - Moving Away from Power Cables
The current generation of smartphones enable consumers to perform a range of tasks throughout their daily routine. Hence, the power-hungry devices require consistent charging to keep them running. In the current technological era, as consumers seek convenient and fast-paced mobile charging solutions, manufacturers are concentrating their efforts towards improving the functionalities and the overall performance of the current wireless charging alternatives. Further, although wireless charging is not a new concept, its adoption remained sluggish in the past few years. However, with propitious advances in wireless charging technology, consumers are likely to move away from power cables in the near future. Wireless charging, also referred to as inductive or contactless power, has garnered significant momentum in the last couple of years, and with consistent innovations in wireless technology, the trend is likely to continue over the years to come.
Several companies, including Powermat and Qi, continue to invest resources in development of next-generation wireless charging solutions to ensure consumers can charge their mobile devices at a blazing pace. The previous iterations of wireless charging were compatible with a very limited range of devices – a major roadblock that played a key role in denting the adoption of wireless chargers in the past. However, emerging technologies in conjunction with research activities have significantly boosted the prospects of cable-free charging than ever before.
Manufacturers Eye Lucrative Opportunities in APEJ
The market in Asia-Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) is expected to thrive in the upcoming years owing to a staggering demand for mobile phone accessories influenced by factors such as high internet penetration, growing adoption of smartphones, and falling prices of smartphones. Fast-developing economies, such as India and China are expected to lead the mobile accessories landscape in the region. Strong presence of multi-brand stores and swelling number of online retailers are further projected to propel the demand for mobile phone accessories in these countries. Indian market is expected to particularly remain influenced by government initiatives to reduce the potential dependency on foreign imports from Taiwan and China. This has provided local manufacturers with the much-needed push in establishing a strong base in the current marketplace.

Convenience and Innovation Top the Charts
In their efforts to gain a substantial market share, mobile phone accessories manufacturers are relying on introducing innovative products, with prime focus on the convenience factor. Owing to commendable progress in voice recognition technology and seamless integration of voice recognition software in smartphones, the demand for wired and wireless headsets is witnessing noteworthy growth. Although the sales of bluetooth/ wireless headphones continue to move in on upward trajectory, charging the same at regular intervals is highly inconvenient. Companies are thus seeking novel ways to address this challenge. For instance, 49101, a headphone brand in Taiwan announced the launch of Changer, a set of Bluetooth earphones that have the capacity to recharge on their own.
Protective cases and covers to see high demand
Sales of headsets to gather pace
Folding cartons highly preferred
Adoption of clear view boxes to increase
