The Market for MEMS in Mobile Phones

Published on August 1, 2009 at 8:23 PM

Research and Markets, the leading source for international market research and market data, has announced the addition of the "Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) Market in Mobile Phones 2008-2012" report to their offering.

Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) is the integration of mechanical elements, sensors, actuators, and electronics on a common silicon substrate through microfabrication technology. MEMS technology allows the development of smart products, augmenting the computational ability of microelectronics with the perception and control capabilities of microsensors and microactuators. In MEMS, the electronics are fabricated using integrated circuit (IC) process sequences. The micromechanical components of MEMS, on the other hand, are fabricated using compatible 'micromachining' processes that selectively etch away parts of the silicon wafer or add new structural layers to form the mechanical and electromechanical devices.

The report forecasts the size of MEMS market in mobile phones over the period 2008-2012. It segments the market by applications of MEMS technology in mobile phones. Further, it discusses the key market drivers and challenges of the MEMS market in mobile phones. The report also profiles some of the key MEMS vendors operating in the mobile phone applications market.
