Keywords:MEMS  MEMS mic  mobile application 

Worldwide MEMS microphone shipments are set to reach 110 crore units in 2013.

Bigger market
Because of the strong promise of MEMS microphones, new suppliers are entering the market and changing the competitive landscape. Two large companies—Epcos and Bosch—bought entry tickets into the MEMS microphone market during the last six months by engaging in acquisitions.

While Knowles still largely dominates the market with more than 80 per cent of units, two companies are emerging as volume manufacturers next to Knowles: Infineon and MemsTech. Overall, nine companies now are shipping MEMS microphones to customers.

"This is a good news for a market that has been suffering from a lack of second sources for volume production." Bouchaud said.
