Growth Factors

 The market is anticipated to grow rapidly over the forecast period owing to the widespread usage of microphones in various end-use applications, particularly consumer electronics. The rising levels of disposable income and the increasing number of tech-savvy buyers, which have triggered the demand for smartphones, compact hearing aids, smart speakers, and automotive electronics, especially in the emerging economies, bodes well for the market growth. The continued advances in technology and the growing popularity of voice-driven applications is also expected to propel the demand for MEMS microphones.

By Type Analysis

Based on type, the global MEMS microphone market has been further segmented into digital and analog. The analog segment is expected to witness steady growth over the forecast period. There is a huge demand for analog output-type microphones for use in the majority of the smartphones. 

When compared to analog output-type microphones, digital output-type microphones are more expensive and less sensitive to electromagnetic interference. Hence, they are preferred in laptops, particularly because of their immunity to the friction caused by the liquid crystal display (LCD) unit. 

By SNR Analysis

Based on SNR, the market for MEMS microphones has been further segmented into very high (>=64dB), high (>=60dB, <64dB), and low (<=59dB). The very high (>= 64dB) SNR MEMS microphones capture sounds with high audio quality and are capable of easily distinguishing a sound from background noise. 

The high (>=60dB, <64dB) SNR MEMS microphones are usually used in camcorders, tablets, laptops, smartphones, and earphones, among others. They have been highly popular before the introduction of piezoelectric technology-based MEMS microphones with a higher SNR. 

By Technology Analysis

Based on technology, the market for MEMS microphones has been further segmented into capacitive and piezoelectric. The capacitive technology has conventionally dominated the market and is considered to be the best choice for high (>= 64dB) SNR MEMS microphones as it does not compromise with the size and the form factor of the MEMS microphones.

On the other hand, piezoelectric technology offers a better SNR due to the usage of scandium-doped AIN film, which also aids in eliminating the sound damping. One of the main features of the piezoelectric products is that they contribute to a steady performance and are less susceptible to deterioration even after used for longer periods. 

By Application Analysis

Based on application, the market for MEMS microphones has been further segmented into mobile phones, other consumer electronics, IoT & VR, hearing aids, and others. The hearing aids, other consumer electronics, and IoT & VR segments are anticipated to register high growth rates over the forecast period. 

The other segment covers industries and end-use verticals, such as oil & gas, construction, robotics, telepresence, manufacturing, automation, automotive, and medical telemetry, among others. MEMS microphones are expected to be increasingly adopted by these industries and end-use verticals over the forecast period.

By Regional Analysis

Among the key regional markets covered in the report, Asia Pacific is dominating the MEMS microphone market owing to the presence of well-established manufacturing facilities in China, the Philippines, and Thailand, among others.

MEMS microphones are anticipated to proliferate in a myriad of industries and end-use verticals, including automotive, agriculture, telepresence, industrial manufacturing, oil & gas, construction, and medical telemetry, among others. As a result, the unit shipments of MEMS microphones are expected to increase over the forecast period.
