MEMS plays a crucial role in the above-mentioned electronics products since they are highly compact and require low power. Thus, these factors are expected to drive growth of the global MEMS microphone market during the forecast period.

  1. Rising application of MEMS in automobile and hearing aid devices is expected to propel the global MEMS microphone market growth over the forecast period

Although MEMS microphones are typically used in consumer electronics, they are finding applications other sectors including automotive and hearing aid devices. The primary function of hearing aid devices is to detect sound and amplify it for the user. This action requires a microphone, where MEMS are now being used predominantly. MEMS microphones offer higher reliability and robust design with low vulnerability to particle ingress. As a result of this, they are increasingly replacing conventional electret condenser microphones. Furthermore, in the automotive sector, MEMS microphones are used in audio sensors and are placed inside and outside the car cabin. Thus, these factors are expected to drive growth of the global MEMS microphone market growth over the forecast period.

Statistics:

Asia Pacific held dominant position in the global MEMS Microphone market in 2019, accounting for 34.7% share in terms of value, followed by North America and Europe.

MEMS Microphone Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic

COVID-19 Pandemic have negatively affected the economies of various countries around the globe. According to the International Monetary fund Analysis, the global economy is expected to shrink down by 3% percent in the year 2020 compared to year 2019. These economic slowdown expected to reduce the spending power of consumers across the globe. People are less likely to spend on the consumer electronics products. The MEMS microphones are majorly used in the mobile phones and other consumer electronics products. 

Market Dynamics- Restrain 

  1. Challenges associated with packaging and integration are expected to restrain growth of the global MEMS microphone market during the forecast period

Since MEMS microphones are extremely small in size, they face a prevalent difficulty in packaging. Untidy packaging can damage these microphones and thus, a special packaging method is required. Many vendors are developing novel methods of packaging so it will keep MEMS microphones in pristine condition. Thus, these factors are expected to restrain growth of the global MEMS microphone market growth over the forecast period.

  1. Inability to transfer high power is expected to hinder the global MEMS microphone market growth over the forecast period

MEMS microphones are significantly small in size, which makes it impossible to transfer high power through. As a result of this, preamplifier or op-amp components are required externally to amplify the signal. Besides, micro-components are more expensive than macro-components, increasing the price of the final product. Therefore, manufacturers are required to make mass production, in order to make it beneficial. Hence, these factors are expected to hinder the global MEMS microphone market growth over the forecast period.
