Microphones continue to be one of the best success stories in MEMS, with mobile device manufacturers adding increasing numbers of these devices to their phones to support advanced features, such as voice command and noise suppression. Silicon microphones have the potential to be the next high-volume MEMS application. With their compact and lightweight structure as well as high integration capability, these products are already in vogue in high-end markets, especially for hearing aid use. Hoping to tap the huge potential of MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems microphones), companies are gearing up to master the technology. The report examines the market for microphones, speakers, and end-applications.

Global CCM market size was worth USD16.247 billion in 2015, a year-on-year rise of 3.8% from 2014, the slowest rate since 2010. It is expected that growth rate will continue to decelerate in 2016, only 1.3%, but bounce back slightly to 1.6% in 2017 with a market size of USD16.732 billion. There were several reasons for slowdown. First, the world was plagued by high deflation rates and currencies like Japanese yen, Korean won and NTD depreciated greatly. Second, the mobile phone market slowed and has become almost saturated. Smartphone market can still maintain the expansion in 2015 and may be afraid to be flat or start declining in 2016. Third, the competition, especially that in Chinese mainland market, was intense. Despite continued upgrading of CCM pixel (mostly 13M pixels for rear CCM), the ASP didn’t rise but slip down. As more and more vendors enter the CCM field with OIS and high-performance AF, a price plunge is inevitable.
