According to our Wireless Device Strategies (WDS) service, global Bluetooth headset revenue growth will be broadly flat in 2013. Lower pricing and growing competition from car-kits are among some of the challenges facing the industry. One bright spot can be found in the stereo headphones market, which we forecast to grow at an above-average rate of +23% in 2013, as model diversity improves, distribution expands, and prices become more affordable. Key players to watch in stereo Bluetooth include Plantronics, Monster, Nokia, Motorola, Jabra, Jaybird and others.
