A MEMS microphone consists of a pressure-sensitive diaphragm that is fixed directly into a silicon IC and is accompanied by an integrated preamplifier. MEMS microphones are often integrated with modern digital products; they are widely used in high-quality audio output devices. Most smartphones and tablets use MEMS microphones for high-quality voice output. Technological advancement has led to the development of miniaturized MEMS microphones, which can be easily integrated into compact electronic devices. MEMS microphones are increasingly used in hearing aids because of their superior noise-reducing quality.

Global Microphones Market 2016-2020

In a microphone, sound waves connect with the diaphragm, which is placed next to an electrically charged plate, causing it to vibrate. As it vibrates, it changes the electric field between the diaphragm and the plate. This generates an electrical signal that corresponds to the sound. When exposed to high volume, the electronics in a condenser microphone can overload, which poses a major challenge in these microphones. Therefore, users need to keep a check on the amount of sound that hits the source. The analysts forecast the global microphone market to grow at a CAGR of 7.75% during the period 2016-2020.
