The Global MEMS Microphones Market size is expected to reach $3,497.90 million by 2027, rising at a market growth of 19.04% CAGR during the forecast period.
MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) microphones refer to miniature devices that offer high fidelity acoustic sensing. Also, these microphones can be easily embedded in an electronic product having restricted space. These microphones are also integrated into smartphones and other consumer products like smart speakers and headsets. In the present scenario, these microphones not just record plain ambient sound, but they also assist stereo capabilities, directivity (through beamforming), active noise cancellation, voice recognition, and other capabilities.
Factors such as the rise in demand for smartphones, IoT-based devices, hearing aids, virtual reality (VR) headsets, and other consumer electronics are anticipated to create lucrative growth opportunities for the MEMS microphones market.
Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic from China, many industries faced a drastic downfall due to the lockdown of stringent measures. Among these industries, the semiconductor market was the most impacted as the majority of manufacturing facilities based in China were compelled to close down their operations, thus drastically hampering the supply chain operations.
On the flip side, the demand for microphones in home automation devices, retail stores, healthcare, and grocery boosted the growth of the MEMS microphone market during the pandemic period. In addition, with the relaxations in the lockdown conditions, the rise in demand for voice interface technology would increase, which is expected to make recovery in the MEMS Microphones market during the forecasting period.
The majority of consumer devices like tablets, smartphones, and smartwatches have integrated microphones in them. The demand for microphones is further fuelled by the rise in demand for these devices. Devices like tablets and mobile phones require compact, thin, and low-power consuming components. As the number of audio applications and features increases, microphone technology becomes more crucial. Moreover, the growing disposable income of the individuals would also drive the demand for higher comfort and security through smart devices and appliances.
For a long time, microphones have been deployed across a wide range of industrial applications for voice applications and communication. In the last couple of years, microphones have been deployed in various industrial applications like sound power testing, general sound measurement, and noise source testing for white goods like power hand tools, heating & air conditioning systems, and small household appliances. Several industry regulations associated with controlling noise levels need the installation of noise monitoring devices in premises that can also be embedded into the prevailing SCADA or DCS systems for the automatic controlling and monitoring of produced noise.
The consumer electronics industry is the biggest application for electret and MEMS microphones. In addition, micro components are often costly than macro components. As MEMS microphones are miniaturized, they could be expensive to be integrated in some applications. Optimized power consumption is one of the basic and most crucial needs of these devices. Electret microphones are considered better than MEMS if power consumption is taken into account. In addition, there is also a low penetration of these MEMS microphones in some countries.
Based on SNR, the market is segmented into Very High (>= 64dB), High (>=60dB, 64dB), Low (<=59dB). The high (>=60dB, <64dB) SNR MEMS microphones are generally utilized in tablets, smartphones, camcorders, laptops, earphones, and others.
Based on Application, the market is segmented into Mobile Phones, IoT & VR, Consumer Electronics, Hearing Aids and Others. The other segment includes industries and end-use verticals like oil & gas, robotics, construction, manufacturing, telepresence, automotive, automation, and medical telemetry. The MEMS microphones would be highly adopted by these industries and end-use verticals throughout the forecasting period.
Based on Technology, the market is segmented into Capacitive and Piezoelectric. Piezoelectric technology provides a higher SNR because of the utilization of scandium-doped AIN film, hence helping in reducing the sound damping.
Based on Type, the market is segmented into Analog and Digital. The digital segment would display a higher growth rate in the MEMS Microphones market during the forecasting period. Digital output-type microphones are highly costly and less sensitive to electromagnetic interference in comparison to analog output-type microphones.
