“The market is characterised by the presence of numerous guitar companies and appears to be highly competitive,” said the research firm. “Product features, types, pricing, aesthetics, design, and quality are some of the major factors the vendors usually compete on.

“With an increase in product extensions, the competitive environment in the market will further intensify in the coming years. To enhance their customer base and improve revenue shares, vendors are constantly making huge investments towards designing, planning, developing, branding, expanding existing products and services, and are also focusing on acquiring new vendors entering the market.

“To sustain the competition an improve their market positions, the guitar manufacturing companies have the need to develop new ideas and technologies and should also stay updated on the emerging technologies that could influence their service lines.”
