Working limitations of sound sensor to hamper the sound sensor market

Sound sensors including ultrasound, acoustic, and audio sensors come with several advantages such as high sensitivity and ability to function across numerous industrial as well as medical applications. However, sound sensors have certain limitations as well. Ultrasound sensors cannot be used in vacuum, as sound waves require air as a medium for transmission. Moreover, these sensors may not function in any type of liquid medium. Thus, sound sensors need to be selected by considering all these limitations.

Additionally, sensing ability of certain sound sensors is affected by soft edges of any surface as well as a certain level of temperature. These limitations of sound sensors are likely to hinder the global sound sensor market, with a medium-level impact, in the near future.

Sound sensor is significantly adopted by the consumer electronics sector

In terms of application, the global sound sensor market has been segmented into health care, automotive, consumer electronics, security & surveillance, industrial, and others. The others segment comprises aerospace and chemical. In the consumer electronics industry vertical, sound sensors are used largely in smartphone devices for object detection, as a microphone, and as a fingerprint scanner.

Technologically advanced, new-generation sound sensors i.e. ultrasonic sensors are replacing optical-proximity sensors, thereby improving the smartphone design. Several manufacturers are coming up with innovative ultrasonic sound sensors to be incorporated in a large number of smartphones. For instance, Qualcomm Incorporated, a semiconductor company, announced the launch of an innovative in-display fingerprint sensor in 2018. This sensor is based on the new 3D and ultrasonic sensor technology that uses sound waves to collect fingerprint data. Furthermore, the device is capable to read fingerprints contaminated by water or oil.
