Taoglas heralds bold expansion into global audio speakers market


SAN DIEGO – July 17, 2019 – Taoglas, a leading provider of IoT and automotive antenna and RF solutions, today announced the addition of high-performance speakers to its product line. Taoglas is well known for its antenna solutions for automotive, smart grid, home automation, remote monitoring and medical applications, but it also delivers highly advanced integrated solutions for the world’s leading telematics and IoT brands.

ThinkWireless, a leader in the global commercial vehicle antenna and speaker market, is currently shipping over 500,000 audio speakers annually. The sector is poised for an impressive $4.73 billion in revenue growth from 2019 to 2023.

“The automotive and commercial trucking industries are experiencing huge demands for extra connectivity, infotainment, content and mobile services. Our entry into the speaker ecosystem is a testament to Taoglas’ evolution as a leading provider of highly advanced vehicle infotainment solutions,” said Dermot O’Shea, Joint CEO and Co-founder of Taoglas. “While many consumers may not appreciate the level of engineering and production sophistication required to consistently produce OEM high-quality automotive speakers, they are actually a critical solution that are often taken for granted for services, such as smart navigation, emergency alert systems and infotainment. Our strength in RF simulation, environmental reliability and testing via anechoic chambers will deliver a crisp and enjoyable audio experience for drivers worldwide, and our custom solution offering is unique in the market. Designers no longer have to accept what is already out there, they can have a speaker optimized for their install and environment at a competitive cost.”
