DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5l9lzt/global_mems_microp) has announced the addition of the "Global MEMS Microphone Market 2011-2015" report to their offering.
One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the reduction in size of MEMS microphones. The Global MEMS Microphone market has also been witnessing emerging applications in the healthcare segment. However, the high cost of MEMS microphones could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
Key vendors dominating this market space include AAC Technologies Holdings Inc., Akustica Inc., Analog devices Inc. and Knowles electronics Inc.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Embedded Systems team said; The Global MEMS Microphone market is witnessing an increase in the emerging applications of MEMS microphones in the Healthcare segment. MEMS microphones are experiencing more applications in the Healthcare segment such as monitoring blood flow, heartbeat, and lung function along with the rapid improvement in MEMS microphone technology. Thus, the increased application of MEMS microphones in the Healthcare segment is an emerging trend in the market.
According to the report, one of the major growth driving factors of the Global MEMS Microphone market is the reduction in the size of MEMS microphones. MEMS microphones are smaller in size with more functionality than the traditional ECMs. Its smaller size makes it preferable because it takes up much less space in embedded electronic devices. Another added advantage of the MEMS microphone apart from its smaller size is its robustness and low power consumption, which makes it more efficient in providing high-quality output. MEMS microphone vendors are focusing on reducing the size even more as this is one of the major growth drivers of the Global MEMS Microphone market.
Further, the report also discusses that one of the major challenges that might affect the growth of the Global MEMS Microphone market is the high cost of MEMS microphones.
