Does becoming a Certified Business Analyst carry any weight?

I’m getting ready to get my PMP from the Project Management Institute (PMI), which is very respected in the industry.

Does the Business Analyst certification from the International Institute of Business Analysts (IIBA) carry the same weight in that sector?

Do employers really care whether their business analyst is certified?
