Global Podcasting Market Dynamics

Over the past few decades, the podcasting market has witnessed significant growth fueled by factors such as the implementation of Internet of Things (IoT), deep learning, and artificial intelligence (AI) in podcasting platforms, as well as increasing disposable income. Additionally, growing smartphone penetration has driven down data prices, and advances in machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) have all helped create the perfect atmosphere for streaming players survive and thrive, which propels the market. Currently, only a few players dominate the music streaming market, using state-of-the-art technology to provide users with a virtually limitless variety of music from artists around the world. This seems like a positive opportunity for the entertainment industry, which has long been plagued by internet piracy and declining revenue.

Additionally, the ease of availability and accessibility of podcasts while traveling and multitasking such as jogging, cleaning, gardening, or exercising is supporting the growth of the market. The availability of large available bandwidth, the arrival of smartphones and, more recently, personal digital assistants have paved the way for the rebuilding of this industry from niche media to popular music modes that increasingly accept new podcasting channels. Furthermore, the adoption of smartphones has increased significantly in recent years in both developed and developing countries. As a result, many customers have access to podcasts and audiobooks. Accordingly, these factors are expected to fuel the expansion of the global podcasting market over the forecast period.
