This market research report presents a detailed segmentation of the global microphone market by type (MEMS, electret, and others), by application (consumer electronics, corporate and education, sensing applications, medical, automotive applications, and security), and by geography (Americas, APAC, and EMEA). The key vendors identified in the market are AAC Technologies, BSE, GoerTek, Knowles Electronics, and STMicroelectronics.

Overview of the microphone market

Extensive research carried out by the analysts at Technavio has shown that the global microphone market will grow at an impressive CAGR of more than 7% during the forecast period. The increasing demand for consumer electronics is one of the key factors driving the growth of this market. The global consumer electronics market is growing substantially due to the increasing penetration of smart gadgets in the market. Moreover, with the growing penetration of microphones in consumer electronics, this market will have a positive impact in the coming years.

In this industry research report, the analysts have estimated factors like the constantly evolving nature of the MEMS packaging industry has a direct impact on the MEMS microphone market. Recently, MEMS packaging has gained immense importance as they had to integrate 9-axis sensors in a single package by reducing the size of the package. Moreover, vendors are striving to achieve standardization in packaging due to an increase in unit shipments of MEMS sensors. The dynamic nature of the MEMS packaging industry is expected to bolster the growth prospects of this market until the end of 2020.
