Government support for art & culture plays a significant role in driving the global market growth. Increased fundings and initiatives to promote artistic events & cultural performances have led to a surge in live music concerts and public shows. For instance, in July 2023, the Indian government released funds for Kajri Mahotsav aimed to conserve the folk music & art of Uttar Pradesh (UP). Such cultural events drive a resurgence in traditional music performances, prompting an increased demand for sophisticated audio equipment including mixing consoles.

The manufacture, purchase, and maintenance of premium consoles, which are often equipped with cutting-edge technology & advanced features, are cost intensive. This pricing becomes a barrier for smaller studios, freelance professionals, and emerging artists, limiting their access to top-tier equipment. The market faces the challenge of balancing affordability and sophistication as the cost hinders broader accessibility & adoption, affecting the market's growth potential.

COVID-19 Impact

COVID-19 had negative impacts on the audio mixing console market as the number of live events and in-person studio sessions declined. However, the market slightly benefited from the rise in remote recordings. The reduction in live events and studio work initially slowed market growth, yet the shift to remote work prompted a demand for consoles suitable for home studios, facilitating some market resilience amid the pandemic-induced challenges.
