The audio world has stepped into another dimension | Acoustic MEMS & Audio Solutions – Vesper VM1000 Piezoelectric Microphone – Knowles MEMS Microphones Patent-to-Product Mapping, all reports from Yole Group of Companies

LYON, France  – June 8, 2017 | Market for MEMS microphones and ECMs, micro-speakers and audio ICs will be worth US$20 billion in 2022. Compared to 2006, the audio business is about to experience profound changes…
When Yole Développement (Yole), part of Yole Group of Companies released its first microphone report in 2006, the MEMS microphone industry was at the early stage, with emerging players and applications.
The “More than Moore” market research & strategy consulting company was announcing a US$116 million market for 260 million units. Today, market figures are at another scale. Therefore, 2017 volume will reach the 5 billion units milestone for a market value over US$1 billion.
Microphone has become a key technology for major MEMS and semiconductor companies. Knowles, Goertek, AAC as well as new comers such as Vesper are part of today’s landscape.

Yole Group of Companies proposes a deep understanding of the audio industry with a collection of reports: Acoustic MEMS & Audio Solutions report reviews the complete evolution of the audio world including MEMS microphones, ECMs, micro-speakers and audio ICs since 2010.
In parallel, System Plus Consulting and KnowMade combine their expertise to perform dedicated reports focused on leading microphone companies, Vesper and Knowles: the Vesper VM1000™ microphone report

“This innovation (Vesper VM1000™ technologies developed by Vesper) reshuffles the cards of the microphone industry, mainly based on capacitive silicon MEMS technologies until now”, comments Romain Fraux, System Plus Consulting’s CTO.

“The technology developed by Knowles in the early 2000s has strongly impacted the audio landscape triggering an unprecedented revolution,” asserts Coralie Legreneur, KnowMade’s IP analyst

“We are today in a new phase. With innovative technologies, smarter software, more algorithms, we reach a new level of performances and see solutions with higher value”, asserts Guillaume Girardin, Technology & Market Analyst, MEMS & Sensors at Yole.
