Commenting on the report, an analyst from Reports team said: MEMS microphones are used in most of handsets and tablets. Very high SNR microphones are increasingly being used in hearing aids. They provide improved performance and noise cancellation. High SNR MEMS microphones are also increasingly being used in hearing aids. The use of MEMS microphones will also be found in automotive segments, which support voice commands and hands-free calling. Very high SNR microphones were used by Apple for iPhone 5 in 2012. In addition, other phones such as Samsung use very high SNR MEMS microphones in S4 and Note3 handsets. With the enhanced support for voice commands, MEMS microphones are helpful to applications such as Siri, Cortana, and Google Now. For instance, Motorola Moto X uses multiple MEMS microphones in its handset.

According to the report, the high growth of hearing aids is because of the increasing hearing problems in the people mainly because of the noise pollution, ear infections, generic factors, and birth complications. The elderly people are at a high risk of being affected by deafness. According to World Health Organization (WHO), over 5% of the world’s population has disabling hearing loss. Most of the population that suffers from hearing loss resides in APAC, and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Further, the report states that the popularity of extra-large smartphones is gaining momentum. The strong growth of smartphones with a larger screen is having a major impact on the unit sales of tablets. Smartphones will continue to grow in future, but the tablet market will have a slow growth rate. The worldwide tablet shipments were around 38 million shipments in the second quarter of 2016. The growth in the tablets market, which includes both slates and detachable tablets, is declining year-over-year by more than 10% as consumers show less affinity toward tablets. 

About MEMS Microphones

A microphone converts sound into an electrical signal. Microphones have wide applications in hearing aids, automotive, telephones, concert halls, public events, radio, and television broadcasting. Different microphones such as dynamic microphones, condenser microphones, and piezoelectric microphones are currently in use. MEMS microphones are also called silicon microphones. MEMS microphones can sense audio signals in a way similar to electret condenser microphones.
