Global Microphones Market 2016-2020

About Microphones

In a microphone, sound waves connect with the diaphragm, which is placed next to an electrically charged plate, causing it to vibrate. As it vibrates, it changes the electric field between the diaphragm and the plate. This generates an electrical signal that corresponds to the sound.

When exposed to high volume, the electronics in a condenser microphone can overload, which poses a major challenge in these microphones. Therefore, users need to keep a check on the amount of sound that hits the source.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global microphone market to grow at a CAGR of 7.75% during the period 2016-2020.
