DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/d5cf4p/global_and) has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese Micro Electronic-Acoustics Component Industry Report, 2013-2014" report to their offering.
The micro electronic-acoustics industry began to deteriorate in the second half of 2013, reflecting a broad decline in gross margin and average selling price of products except earphone and headphone. The industry leader-AAC has accidentally suffered downdrafts entering 2014 for several reasons: it is impossible for the mobile phone market including the smartphone market to reproduce high growth, and China's smartphone market shows signs of decline.
According to data released by China Academy of Telecommunication Research of MIIT, the domestic mobile phone market accumulated shipments of 293 million units in January-August 2014, down 24% as opposed to 396 million units a year earlier, including 254 million smartphones (down 11.3% yr-on-yr). Besides, the tablet PC market apparently stopped growing e.g. a slowdown in iPad shipments, in contrast to the slightly improved laptop computer market.
On the other hand, the micro electronic-acoustics industry amid intensified competition has created space for generous profits in the transfer process from manual to automatic, and players have now completed the layout of automatic production lines, leading to non-existence of potential for cost reduction. Nowadays, mobile phone competition focuses on thickness, CPU, screen and camera, less concerned about sound performance, whose improvements depend on earphone rather than the phone itself, thus vendors prefer to adopt cheap electro-acoustic components.
In the field of micro electromechanical system (MEMS) microphone, large MEMS foundries or IDMs provide cheap MEMS dies which causes a drastic drop in MEMS microphone prices. The fierce price war has brought a rare loss for Knowles, not to mention other companies.
