Global Microphone Market Report 2020 with COVID-19 Impact Insights: Variations in Supply and Demand

Research and Markets
·6-min read

Dublin, Oct. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Microphone Market with COVID-19 Impact - Global Forecast to 2025" report has been added to's offering.

The global microphone market size is estimated to be USD 1.6 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach 2.3 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period.

The consumer electronics segment accounted for the largest market share of the microphone market, by application and is dominated by smartphone manufacturers. The demand for smartphones, tablets, wearable devices, and smart home equipment has been drastically increased with high disposable income and improved life.

Moreover, in most instances, IoT and voice-activated connected devices have created new market growth opportunities for key players in the microphone market. Thus, the growing inclination toward the adoption of the IoT technology is leading to surging demand for audio sensors that can be used anywhere, which is contributing towards the growth of the microphone market.

The market has a promising growth potential due to several factors, including the high adoption of next-generation consumer electronics, increased number of microphones per device, escalated demand for modern microphones for use in smart wearable devices, and elevated use of piezoelectric microphones in IoT applications.

The COVID-19 outbreak generated both demand-side and supply-side shocks rumbling across the global economy. Leading China-based microphone manufacturers such as AAC Technologies and Goertek have incurred huge losses due to the pandemic. The strong actions such as imposing a country-wide lockdown taken by governments globally to curb the spread of COVID-19 is expected to have a severe impact on the entire manufacturing industry.

The supply chain of the microphone is heavily dependent on OEMs and raw material suppliers, which are unable to function due to lockdowns imposed worldwide. Also, as the demand for consumer electronics has experienced a decline in this pandemic situation, the demand for microphones is significantly impacted, thereby affecting the revenue of the key players in the microphone market.

The microphone market is dominated by a few globally established players such as Knowles (US), AAC Technologies (China), TDK (Japan), Goertek (China), and STMicroelectronics (Switzerland).
