Microphones or sound sensors are the devices that sense the changes in the sounds in its surroundings and then produces an output in the required form accordingly. The output could be in the digitized form. The sound is sensed by the sensor using various techniques, such as whenever there is a change in the air pressure, this pressure based changes instigate the device and it produces the output in the required form. The output can be stored or analyzed as per the requirement of the industrial application. Sound sensors are also popular as acoustic sensors and are useful as they can sense sounds that are difficult for human ears to sense. The marine industry finds its applications of using sound sensors at varying places. Besides the marine industry, sound sensors are also being used in the healthcare industry. The sound sensing devices have the potential to detect bone fractures.
The primary driver for this market is the increasing application development besides product development. The customized and easy-to-use applications have propelled the growth in the application of such technologies. The other drivers for this market include rising demand of reliable, high performance and cheaper sensors which have been driven by various factors towards miniaturization. In addition, factors such as evolving inclination towards telecommunication market, low manufacturing cost and progress in various application segments are touted as the factors driving this market.
