A wireless microphone, sometimes known as a cordless microphone, is a microphone that does not have a physical cable connecting it to the sound recording or amplifying equipment it is used with. It features a tiny, battery-powered radio transmitter built into the microphone body that sends the audio signal from the microphone via radio waves to a nearby receiver device, which recovers the audio. The receiver device is connected to the other audio equipment through a cable. The transmitter is housed into the body of one type of portable microphone.
The VHF or UHF frequency bands are commonly used by wireless microphones because they allow the transmitter to employ a tiny, discreet antenna. Most units allow for the selection of multiple frequency channels in case of interference on a channel or to allow the use of multiple microphones at the same time. Cheaper units use a fixed frequency, but most units allow for the selection of several frequency channels in case of interference on a channel or to allow the use of multiple microphones at the same time. Scanner radio receivers that operate in the 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz, or 6 GHz ISM bands normally employ FM modulation, however some types use digital modulation to prevent illegal reception. Antenna diversity (two antennas) is used in certain versions to avoid nulls from interfering with transmission when the performer moves about. Infrared light is used in a few low-cost (or specialty) devices, although this requires a straight line of sight between the microphone and the receiver.
Wireless microphone Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
- Rise in wireless microphone technology
Growing automation in the automotive sector has increased the demand for various types of wireless microphone related products, which are used in driver assistance systems, controllers, power integrated devices, telematics, and Asia-Pacific Positioning Systems (GPS). These devices are widely used in Electric Vehicles (EVs) and autonomous vehicles. Hence, rise in demand for electric cars is estimated to spur product adoption over the forecast period. With the advent of connected technologies, the manufacturing industry is rapidly transforming.
- Increase in adoption of next generation consumer electronics
Consumer electronics are electronic gadgets that can connect, share, and interact with its users and other smart devices. Smaller size and higher computing power of few gigabytes make it different from general consumer electronic devices present in the market.
Continuous investments by industry players in R&D for the development of new smart consumer electronic products, including smartphones, smart wearables, and smart homes increase the demand for wireless microphones.
- Growing demand for the soft electronic components
Soft electronics are an emerging class of electronic devices that are flexible and stretchable. Soft and conformable electronics are emerging rapidly and are envisioned as the future of next-generation electronic devices where devices can be readily deployed in various environments, such as on-body, on-skin, or biomedical implants. Modern-day electronics require electrical conductors as the fundamental building block for stretchable electronic devices and systems.
- Limitations in terms of sensitivity, noise, and power consumption
Wireless microphones are prone to interference, noise, drop-outs, and many other RF problems. These problems can be disastrous for both live productions and installed systems. Everyone can recall a time when a wireless mic suffered static or intermittent dropouts during a live event. Additionally, signal blockages can occur with wireless microphones due to barriers in your venue area or the physical distance between the transmitter and receiver.
Microphones generate extremely little electricity, which makes sense given how light the moving elements must be in order to precisely follow sound waves. When exposed to a set sound pressure level, the microphone sensitivity remains the same, and it produces a certain signal. However, a wireless microphone tends to consume large quantity of power and also the time required for charging a wireless microphone is considerably higher, which acts as a major drawback for the market.
- Increase in metal prices hampering the overall component production costs
Wireless microphone contain a variety of metals irrespective of the products. The electronic devices environment on a daily basis is built with many components that contain metals of gold, silver, copper, and palladium. From cell phones to modems and computers, electronics find a new lease on life in the marketplace. Each metal has special characteristics, ranging from superior conductivity to unmatched insulating properties that make them perfect for electronic components. Metals are characterized as critical when their supply rates are low compared with increasing demand. As the demand for metals increases, the price of certain also increases. Copper is used for its excellent conductivity and malleability (the ability to be shaped and mashed). Nickel, chromium, aluminum, lead, silver, and tin are also used in various industries. These metals go into components such as resistors, capacitors, and transducers.
- . Growing deployment of microphones for various applications
The development of advanced technologies, automation, and machine control systems depends on the ready availability of high-performance and high-reliability components. The procurement of wireless microphone systems for various environmental applications requires a high degree of engineering experience and expertise provided in the form of technical support, to ensure technical compliance to various project requirements. As wireless microphone manufacturers invest in components that are related to high end electronics, there comes a major impact in the supply chain, it is becoming possible to implement macro-scale optimization.
- Design and complexity challenges for the development of high-efficiency microphones rise in dependency of manufacturer on different suppliers
Different electronic components are required for the manufacturing of wireless microphones. Consumer demand for advanced electronic devices has raised the requirement of wireless microphones. Manufacturing companies mostly get these components, such as ICs, semiconductors, PCBs, and others from their supplier as they mostly give those discounts and provide the products in bulk. The COVID-19 has disrupted the Asia-Pacific supply chain of several electronic companies.
On the supply side, TSMC, Samsung, Intel, there are just very few companies in the world that can do advanced processes. Once demand surges, they are overwhelmed by this kind of sweet burden. On the demand side, almost all electronic products need embedded microphones. Such as Sony PS5 game console, Bitcoin mining machine (graphics GPU), MCU unit on car, mobile phone chip (SOC), new energy vehicle power chip (IGBT), as well as consumer Bluetooth headsets, Wi-Fi, drones Chips, and others.
Post COVID-19 Impact on Asia-Pacific Wireless Microphone Market
COVID-19 created a major impact on the wireless microphone market as almost every country has opted for the shutdown for every production facility except the ones dealing in producing the essential goods. The government has taken some strict actions such as the shutdown of production and sale of non-essential goods, blocked international trade, and many more to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The only business which is dealing in this pandemic situation is the essential services that are allowed to open and run the processes.
The growth of the wireless microphone market is increasing as growing automation in the automotive sector has increased the demand for various types of wireless microphone related products, which are used in driver assistance systems, controllers, power integrated devices, telematics, and Asia-Pacific Positioning Systems (GPS). These devices are widely used in Electric Vehicles (EVs) and autonomous vehicles. Hence, rise in demand for electric cars is estimated to spur product adoption over the forecast period. However, factors such as inadequate availability of raw material to meet wireless microphone production demand are restraining the market growth. The shutdown of production facilities during the pandemic situation has had a significant impact on the market.
Manufacturers are making various strategic decisions to bounce back post COVID-19. The players are conducting multiple research and development activities to improve the technology involved in the Wireless microphone. With this, the companies will bring advanced and accurate controllers to the market.
