Electric Guitars Market: Introduction

  • Electric guitars are a type of guitars in which strumming the strings themselves is not the primary source of the sound. The vibrations caused by the movement of the strings are captured and magnified electronically in order to produce a louder output. The sound of an electric guitar can also be electrically modified, since an electrical representation of the vibration of the string is produced in electric guitars. This can then be modulated with the help of dials and other controls on the electric guitar as well as pedals. This is the primary factor distinguishing electric guitars from acoustic guitars; the sound produced by the latter comes directly from the vibration of the strings and hence, it can’t be modulated electronically. The market for electric guitars is projected to expand significantly during the forecast period.

Key Drivers and Opportunities of Global Electric Guitars Market

  • Increasing interest in music across the globe is a major factor driving the global electric guitars market. Electric guitars are essential in popular genres of music such as rock and metal. The popularity of these genres is prompting several individuals to learn to play the guitar. This is also a key factor boosting the global electric guitars market.
  • Increase in disposable income of individuals in developing economies is enabling them to indulge in hobbies such as music. This is a major driver of the global electric guitars market. Continued popularity of rock music is another factor propelling the global electric guitars market, as the two, i.e. guitars and music, are intricately connected in the eyes of the masses. Rise in number of rock bands also fuels the global electric guitars market.
  • On the other hand, electrical guitars can be expensive for most amateurs. An important reason for this is that, unlike acoustic guitars, electric guitars need an amplifier. This is a major restraint of the global electric guitars market, particularly in developing countries.
  • Increase in popularity of acoustic guitars has also hindered the electric guitars market, as acoustic guitars are much cheaper than electric guitars and require less maintenance. However, advanced guitar playing techniques are easier to perform on electric guitars, since they have no frets and possess softer strings as compared to acoustic guitars.

  • In terms of geography, the global electric guitars market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America
  • The global electric guitars market is dominated by North America due to the high interest in rock music, high disposable income of the population, and the high number of rock bands in the region, which is expected to drive the demand for the electric guitars during the forecast period.
