With a growing need for collaboration, audiovisual (AV) systems are essential to both public and private sectors, and are becoming more heavily relied upon by society each year. The professional AV industry worldwide is experiencing rapid growth. Generating $178 billion in 2016, it is expected that global AV revenues will increase 4.7 percent annually through 2022. The healthcare market alone will reach double-digit growth around the world through 2022. Other consumers of AV products and services include the hospitality market, corporations, educational institutions, and governmental agencies.
