Latest smartphones and headphones also support NFC connectivity, which allow devices to be paired with a single tap. The market will also likely witness a boom in the demand for 3D headphones during the forecast period. 3D headphones provide surround sound and these headsets use a special kind of sensor, which detects direction and produces sound effects accordingly.

The major driver influencing the global gaming headsets market is the increasing popularity of e-sports leagues. eSports leagues are a career option for many gamers, making gaming headsets mandatory.
