Global MEMS Microphone Transducer Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

MEMS microphones are used in a variety of applications, including smartphones, tablets and laptops. They are also used in hearing aids and other medical devices. The importance of MEMS microphones lies in their small size and low power consumption, which makes them ideal for portable devices.


Silicon is a semiconductor material with the property to allow electron movement across the gap between its electrodes. It is also known as a piezoelectric materials due to its ability to generate and store electrical energy. Silicon has been used in making transistors, integrated circuits (IC), and other electronic components which have driven innovations in many fields including technology, medicine, communications & information technology (IT) etc.


Polymers are a class of compounds that contain multiple repeat units or monomers linked by chemical bonds. Polymers can be natural, synthetic or semi-synthetic. Natural polymers include proteins and peptides while synthetic polymers include plastics and fibers.

Application Insights:

The hearing-loss people segment dominated the global market in 2017. This is due to the rising prevalence of hearing loss among all age groups and genders. According to a study published by the National Health Statistics (NHS), it was estimated that around 40 million adults aged 65 years or above suffered from some form of hearing loss in 2016, which was a significant increase from 1999. The aging process causes changes in the structure and function of ears, which results in difficulty comprehending speech especially at high volumes levels. As a result, MEMS microphones are being used for earphones with smartphones and laptops as they provide clarity even at high volume levels without distorting sounds or voices.

The aged people application segment is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period owing to increasing geriatric population across various regions coupled with growing need for better quality of life among them by providing enhanced communication facilities through advanced technology products such as tablets.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period owing to high disposable income, increasing adoption of smart devices and rising demand for miniaturization in various applications. Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing regional market from 2018 to 2030 due to growing product demand from aged people, hearing-loss people and military application areas.

The MEMS microphone transducer industry in Europe is expected grow at a significant rate during the forecast period owing to increased use of voice command systems and digital assistants such as Google Home, Amazon Alexa among others in European countries such as Germany, France and Italy among others to increase their sales growth rates.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for MEMS microphones in smartphones and tablets
  • Rising demand from automotive sector
  • Growing popularity of voice-activated assistants and smart home devices
  • Proliferation of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) applications
  • Increasing adoption of MEMS microphones in hearing aids
