This report analyses the continuing success story of MEMS microphones, one that leads to a 2015–2019 unit CAGR of 14% and revenue CAGR of 9%. The trends and considerations that justify and describe the push to higher numbers of high ASP microphones are detailed and forecasted by application category and even by smartphone OEM.
Trends towards MEMS microphones with SNR OF ≥64 dB and of the shift from analog to digital are discussed and forecasted. The possible future trends in microphone performance as well as potential and actual technological possibilities are presented and contextualised. Important industry updates for both MEMS microphone die and package suppliers are discussed as well as OEM trends in microphone adoption. This report and database will provide value to decision makers along the supply chain from die and ASIC suppliers and microphone packagers planning production volume all the way to OEMs considering technology trends and suppliers.
