A stereo system is a way of playing sound that appears more realistic as the sound comes from two speakers or channels. Amplifier is a device that increases the signal strength of an electronic input. Stereo or AV (Audio/ Video) receiver amplifier receives low power electronic sound from an outside source and amplifies or increases the sound level of the electronic signal so that it can match the input of loudspeakers attached to a stereo or home theater system. A home theatre system consists of an AV receiver, integrated stereo amplifier, speaker selector, main speakers, and home theatre speakers. The main function of stereo amplifiers is to power the speakers connected to a home theatre system.  

With electronic products becoming more affordable, there is an increasing demand for home stereo systems or home theatre. Home stereo systems require a stereo amplifier to match the sound quality for stereo loud speakers. Rising demand for stereo systems is expected to increase the demand for stereo amplifiers across the globe.

In developed and even in developing countries such as India, there is an increasing demand for surround sound systems including stereo systems as more and more people in India prefer the comfort of their living room to cinema theatres, according to Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSME), Government of India. The stereo systems provide the user a feel that the sound quality is more natural and entertaining. Many multinational companies have entered the market in India for selling stereo amplifiers and surround sound systems. However, there is enough market potential for India’s SME (Small and Medium Enterprises) stereo amplifier manufacturers in India’s home theatre system market.

In terms of class, the global stereo amplifier market is segmented into Class A amplifier, Class B amplifier, Class AB amplifier, Class G amplifier, Class H amplifier, and Class D amplifier. Based on product type, the global stereo amplifier market can be segmented into preamplifier, stereo receivers, integrated stereo amplifiers, power amplifiers, and others. Based on technology, the stereo amplifier market can be segmented into analog stereo amplifier and digital stereo amplifier. In terms of distribution channel, the stereo amplifier market can be bifurcated into online channel and offline channel.
