Audio editing software is a suite or a stand-alone product which is used to record, edit, or generate digital audio data. Audio editing software is often used by engineers and audio editors in order to delete, mix, edit, and rearrange audio sections. This software also helps to apply effects and filters, merge audios and adjust stereo channels of an audio component. Audio editing software also offers a wide range of professional filters such as band pass filters, fast Fourier transform (FFT) filter, high shelf filter and others such as notch filter and peak equalizer (EQ) filter. It helps to make changes in audio components using non-linear editing system. Non-linear editing system is a framework for audio, video, or image editing in which content is reconstructed, modified, rendered, and played back as per specified editing steps every time. Additionally, audio editing software also provides multitrack editing feature which allows to mix audio from different tracks and modify them using effects and filters in real-time. The software also helps to compress and convert audio component from one file format to another. Typically, these file formats include MP3, FLAC, WAV and others such as AAC etc. Several companies are providing tailor-made or customized software solutions as per requirements in order to deliver optimized and faster user performance in audio editing.
Increasing demand for high quality audio components across industries especially in media & entertainment is driving the market. Similarly, growing emphasize of entertainment companies on delivering noise reduced and better sounding audio content is boosting the demand for audio editing software. Rising adoption of audio editing software across applications such as recording, playback, audio optimization, production, and radio is enhancing the revenue opportunities for vendors in the market. Audio editing software with multiple functionalities such as audio grabber, audio converter, editor and recorder offered by vendors is also aiding adoption of software across applications. Moreover, large number of beginner and established podcasters actively using audio editing software in order to enhance audio quality is driving the growth of the market. Apart from this, growing penetration of internet and an increasing smartphone user base around the globe are driving adoption of online or cloud-based audio editing software. However, software compatibility issues with operating systems (OS) and limited software version shelf life are limiting the use of audio editing software. Similarly, rising data corruption and security threats such as virus, malware, and others are the major concerns of audio editing software.
Audio editing software is segmented by editing type, deployment type, and end-use. By editing type, audio editing software is segmented into destructive editing and real-time editing. Based on deployment type, the market is categorized into on premise, cloud-based, and web-based. Among these types, audio editing applications deployed on mobile devices are considered in cloud-based deployment type. On the basis of end-use, the audio editing software market is bifurcated into broadcaster or publisher, schools & universities, independent & home users, and others such as audio book publishers etc. Among these end-users, broadcaster or publisher and home users are likely to hold high market share due to strong penetration of audio editing software. With regards to geography, North America is expected to dominate the market due to high adoption of software and presence of a large number of software providers across the region. The Asia Pacific and Europe audio editing market is anticipated to experience increasing demand during the forecast period.
