Nobody needs to be reminded of how rough the US economy has been over the course of the last 2-3 years. Every publication documents the dire state of the nation across almost all industries. But, according to an article published by the USA Today 'Home Theater Gear is a Booming Business' and Berkline - the largest provider in the US - is experiencing strong sales and year over year growth in this category. The global demand for home theater is expected to reach $2.9BN in 2013 from $1.9BN in 2006.
That is impressive growth.
Apparently this trend was started by the renewed interest in televisions that came about with flat screen technology reaching the masses. Home theater products include sound systems, display systems, players, media storage and furniture.
