The Global MEMS Microphones Market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of 13.4% during the forecast period (2021-2028). The growth in this market can be attributed to factors such as an increase in demand for smartphones and an increasing need for wireless audio devices with high-quality sound.
MEMS Microphones are electronic devices with self-contained moving parts that convert sound waves into electrical signals. A MEMS microphone is a type of sensor array which converts electromagnetic field variations to electric current and voltage amplitudes at its terminals, where the amplitude represents the intensity or "loudness" of sounds in the air around it. It operates through electrostatic coupling rather than inductive or capacitive coupling like normal microphones do.
On the basis of Type, the market is segmented into Capacitive Microphones (Directional Microphones), Piezoresistive Microphones (Back Electromotive Force or BEMS Sensors), Piezoelectric Microphone (Capacitance), Optical Microphones, and Fet Microphones. The types of MEMS Microphones are typically chosen based on the application requirements such as high sensitivity for long-distance communication or low power consumption needed in portable devices.
Capacitive Microphones are a type of MEMS microphone that measures changes in capacitance rather than acoustic vibrations. This is achieved by applying a high voltage to the sensing plates, which causes them to generate charges. The charge distribution across each plate generates a potential difference measurable outside the device as well as induced capacitances inside and between electrodes within the device (i.e., self-capacitance). Capacitive microphones have advantages over piezoelectric and optical devices due to their small size, low power consumption, robustness against environmental noise, and absence of moving parts or air interfaces.
Piezoresistive Microphones are microphones that detect sound waves by using a diaphragm. Piezo-resistive materials can be used to make the microphone work in both audio frequency ranges and ultrasonic frequencies (20 kHz). The piezoelectric material is stretched or squeezed to produce changes in electrical resistance, which generates a voltage signal proportional to the applied force. Just as with capacitive MEMS microphones, different voltages correspond to different acoustic pressures and thus generate an output signal corresponding to variations in air pressure created by sounds coming from various directions around us.
The piezoresistive material changes its resistance when the applied force or pressure varies. This change in impedance is then translated into an electrical signal, which can be transmitted and amplified as needed. Piezo microphones are very efficient with minimal self-noise, but they require high voltage supplies of typically 100 volts per microphone to function properly. The quality of sound may also vary greatly depending on a variety of environmental conditions such as humidity and temperature levels.
Piezoelectric microphones are microphones that detect sound waves by using a piezo-resistive material. Piezos can be used to make the microphone work in both audio frequency ranges and ultrasonic frequencies (20 kHz). They generate voltage signals proportional to applied force, which converts acoustic pressure into an electrical signal. Just as with capacitive MEMS microphones, different voltages correspond to different air pressures generated by sounds coming from various directions around us.
Fet Microphones are MEMS microphones that operate on the principle of electrostriction. They generate a voltage proportional to applied force, which converts acoustic pressure into an electrical signal. Fet Microphones can be used in audio frequency ranges and ultrasonic frequencies (20 kHz).
On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into Household and Commercial. The Commercial segmentation, the market for MEMS microphones is divided into household and commercial. Households accounted for a share of 76% in 2016 and this figure will likely grow to 80% by 2028. On the other hand, commercial applications have grown from 24% in 2011 to 26% in 2017 as they are gaining much traction among various enterprises such as retail stores, restaurants, or hotels which all require public address systems.
On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The dominance of the market in North America is attributed to their high adoption rates for MEMS microphones which are being used in various public address systems. North American companies dominate the global market with more than 60% share owing to their high adoption rates of MEMS microphones for various applications including household use, commercial products, and other industrial segments which require wiring voice communications devices.
Emerging economies in Europe may provide new opportunities for producers over the next decade while Latin America will witness moderate growth due to less usage compared to other regions. The Asia Pacific region is the fastest-growing market for MEMS microphones. The growth in this region has been fuelled by strong demand from emerging economies such as China and India where there are a high number of institutions that need public address systems, like schools and universities.
