The total market for the Microphone market will be worth $1.81 billion by 2020 at an estimated CAGR of 7.5%.

Microphones Market are defined as the transducers which convert the acoustic pressure wave signals to the electrical signals. Microphones are mainly used to convert the acoustical energy into electrical energy in a wide range of applications, ranging from consumer level applications, such as smartphones, to large-scale applications, such as in industries. Microphones are widely used in voice recognition, voice transmission, noise recognition and reduction, and numerous sensing applications. For instance, they are used in different applications, namely automobile for driver assistance and positioning control, medical, electronic stethoscopes, commercial security for gunshot detection, and so on. Moreover, with the recent development in the MEMS technology and emergence of connected environment, multiple microphones are being implemented in a single device for features such as “always on”, noise reduction, and so on.

The microphone market has been divided into three types, namely MEMS microphones, electret microphones, and other microphones. MEMS microphones have further been segmented as digital MEMS microphones and analog MEMS microphones.

Some of the major applications in microphone market are such as VoIP, Gaming and virtual reality input devices, Digital still and video cameras, laptop and notebook computers, portable media players, cellphones, smart phones, laptop computers, headsets, smartwatches, antitheft systems, handsfree system, human machine interface, parking assistance systems. Some of the major industries in microphone market are such as automotive, commercial security & surveillance, consumer electronics, industrial, medical, and sensing applications.
