There has been significant growth in the global market for audiobooks over the past few years. The growth has been a result of attractive offerings from audiobook service providers, expansion of the range of listening alternatives (smartphones, tablets, desktops, and smart speakers, among others), and an increase in the number of people taking to audiobooks for various reasons.

Audiobooks are especially useful for the visually impaired and for those who like to read but do not have time. Traditionally, audiobooks have been used by teachers and schools to teach second language learners and students with learning disabilities. Audiobooks have provided an effective means to access and enjoy literature. Such aspects are expected to boost the global market of audiobooks.

With an increase in children’s smart speaker consumption, the popularity of audiobooks among children has also been reported to increase significantly.
