Technavio hardware and semiconductor analysts highlight the following three market drivers that are contributing to the growth of the global MEMS microphone market:
- Increased penetration of MEMS technology in hearing aids
- Increased number of MEMS microphones per device in smartphones
- Increased demand for enhanced audio experience in devices
Increased penetration of MEMS technology in hearing aids
The high growth of hearing aids is because of the increase in hearing problems due to various factors such as noise pollution, ear infections, genetic factors, and birth complications. The older adults are at a high risk of being affected by deafness. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), over 5% of the world's population has disabling hearing loss. Most of the population that suffers from hearing loss resides in APAC, and Sub-Saharan Africa. Many manufacturers are developing advanced hearing aids along with features such as Bluetooth, noise cancellation, and other digital functions. The demand for expensive hearing aids with additional features has led to increased demand for MEMS pressure sensors as they have low power consumption with high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), making them suitable for use in hearing aids.
Increased number of MEMS microphones per device in smartphones
The growth of MEMS microphones market is coupled with strong demand from the smartphones market. The growing number of shipments of MEMS microphone is because of the increased number of MEMS microphones per smartphone. The average number of MEMS microphones increased from two or three to four microphones in iPhone 6s. Of these four MEMS microphones, one is used for voice capture, two are used for voice cancellation, and one for the improvement of voice recognition. Most OEMs use around two or three MEMS microphone in their mobile devices.
Increased demand for enhanced audio experience in devices
MEMS microphones offer an excellent audio quality. MEMS microphones are less susceptible to mechanical vibrations and temperature variations. They provide increased electromagnetic interference compared with electret microphones. They also provide enhanced performance and noise cancellation with high shock resistance.
“MEMS microphones are increasingly being used in mobile phones, laptops, phablets, tablets, digital cameras and camcorders, smartphones, gaming consoles, portable media players, headsets, hands-free devices, and hearing aids,” says Navin.
