Sonos - Wireless home sound systems

Sonos was created in 2002 in the Santa Barbara area of California to design, develop and manufacture their own unique range of Smart Speakers. By 2004 they were able to showcase their prototype of what their vision for a wireless service should look and perform. It proved to be a success from the very moment it was shown.

Sonos has become one of the top market leaders with Amazon & Google in home audio technology during its brief period. They now have 12 offices in countries spanning the globe such as US, UK, Australia, China and many leading European nations.

Sonos has become a successful developer of wireless multi-room audio systems for homes, no matter the size. Sonos was the first company to recognise that wireless networks were the future and their Sonos Multi-Room Music System was the first of its kind. The system allowed homeowners to play all their music anywhere they wanted in their homes and control it all from the palms of their hands. No need for wiring to clutter up homes anymore.

Sonos showed the way to liberate music stored online by enabling streaming services to link to the speakers and to be enjoyed all over the home. By partnering with various streaming services such as Spotify, Amazon Music and Apple Music gives instant access to millions of songs, 1,000s of radio stations, and audiobooks.

Home entertainment speakers and systems account for over 30% of the Home Audio Equipment market size, and the growth is set to continue as demand rises for wireless speakers and devices.

In Europe alone, the market size is considered to be in the region of over £4 Billion and also seen to be rising through the rapid growth in sales for residential audio systems. A new report published by Global Market insights gave predictions of orders to surpass 150 million units by 2024 allowing the market size to exceed £15 Billion over the same period.

With constant advancements in technology, consumers have come to expect to see voice-enabled speakers & soundbars without racks of components that at the same time can also deliver on the quality of sound. Companies such as Sonos are continually looking for ways to meet this growing market and emphasis on appeal is high on the agenda to meet the aspirations of its customers both in the UK and worldwide.
