Research and Markets: MEMS Microphone: Shipments are Expected to Grow from 2.4B in 2013 to 6.6B Units in 2019 Pointing to a Market Filled with Opportunities

By Business Wire News   


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “MEMS Microphone – Technology and Patent Infringement Risk Analysis – Reverse Costing Analysis” report to their offering.

The MEMS Microphone will remain one of the fastest growing MEMS components due to existing and new opportunities. According to Yole Dévelopement, the market will grow from $785M in 2013 to $1.65B by 2019. Knowles is the dominant player with 61% market shares in 2013 and 58% in 2014. A decrease is again expected in the next years with new challengers entering the market: STMicroelectronics, OMRON, AAC Technologies, Infineon Technologies and InvenSense(/ Analog Devices).

The global market share of these 6 players account for more than 80% of MEMS Microphone market in 2014. These players are all developing innovative technical and manufacturing solutions and, in parallel of course, the right patents to protect their inventions.

In a patent infringement action, the potential sales volume plays a major role for assessing the damage award. Thereby, this study is naturally focused on the last MEMS Microphone components supplied by these market leaders and challengers: Knowles (S1157, iPhone 5S/6), ST/OMRON (MP45DT01), AAC/Infineon (SR595, iPhone 5S/6), InvenSense/ADI (ICS-43432).

This report provides an overview of technology data and manufacturing process of S1157, MP45DT01, SR595 and ICS-43432 MEMS Microphone components.

A comparative study of the technology and manufacturing process of these MEMS Microphone components has been performed in order to highlight the technical similarities and differences of the product features.

Companies Mentioned:

– AAC Technologies

– Infineon Technologies

– InvenSense(/ Analog Devices)


– STMicroelectronics
