Condenser microphones are based on an electrically-charged diaphragm/backplate assembly which forms a sound-sensitive capacitor. Here, sound waves vibrate a very thin metal or metal-coated-plastic diaphragm. The diaphragm is mounted just in front of a rigid metal or metal-coated-ceramic backplate. In electrical terms this assembly or element is known as a capacitor (historically called a "condenser"), which has the ability to store a charge or voltage. When the element is charged, an electric field is created between the diaphragm and the backplate, proportional to the spacing between them. It is the variation of this spacing, due to the motion of the diaphragm relative to the backplate, that produces the electrical signal corresponding to the sound picked up by a condenser microphone.
With the development of entertainment industry, the demand of Condenser Microphones constantly increased in these years. In 2017, the global Condenser Microphones market is led by United States, capturing about 31.16% of global Condenser Microphones consumption. Europe is the second-largest region-wise market with 24.12% global consumption share. At present, this industry is dispersion. The major manufacturers of Condenser Microphones including Shure, Sennheiser, Sony and Audio-Technica.
Condenser microphones have always been the preferred type for studio recording. Due to its extremely low mass, the diaphragm of a condenser microphone can follow the sound waves more accurately than that of a dynamic microphone with a (relatively) heavy moving coil attached. Condenser microphones, therefore, offer superior sound quality. Of all microphone types, condensers have the widest frequency response and the best transient response (transients are fast bursts of energy, e.g. the attack of a drum or the “pick” of an acoustic guitar). Also, condenser microphones usually offer much higher sensitivity (i.e. Production) and lower noise than dynamic microphones. Globally, the Condenser Microphones market is mainly driven by growing demand for Studio which accounts for nearly 55.89% of total downstream consumption of condenser microphones in global.
