Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global MEMS Microphone Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The miniaturization of MEMS microphones is one of the major trends in the Global MEMS Microphone market. MEMS microphones are small, with more functions than a traditional ECM. An MEMS microphone is almost 10 times smaller than an ECM. The size makes it preferable and compact as it takes up little space in embedded electronic devices. Another advantage of a small MEMS microphone is its robustness and low power consumption, which makes it more efficient and provides high-quality output.
According to the report, the increased use of MEMS microphones in smartphones is one of the major growth drivers. MEMS microphones are a fundamental integrated component in smartphones for the audio functions. The market has experienced an increase in the adoption of these microphones by smartphone manufacturers. Initially, the manufacturers integrated only one MEMS microphone in smartphones, but it has now been increased to two or three.
Further, the report states that lack of product differentiation is one of the major challenges for the vendors in the market. This leads to increased product selection challenges as end-users from various industries adopt MEMS microphones which have multiple features, not all of which will be required by all end-users.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
