Tool Dedicated to Help Decision Makers Evaluate MEMS Companies' Corporate Value and Growth Strategies

Published on August 7, 2009 at 8:16 PM

Research and Markets, the leading source for international market research and market data, has announced the addition of the "MEMS Players: An Analysis of Financial Performance" report to their offering.

This report is a tool dedicated to help decision makers evaluate MEMS companies’ corporate value and growth strategies. Supported by Yole’s powerful MEMS industry analysis, this report presents key metrics that are used to evaluate corporate financial performance and valuation. It contains the “must have” data you need to make your corporate strategy decision with a value creation perspective.

The current economic crisis is obviously impacting the MEMS industry. But, despite the current challenges in the market, several market segments are well-positioned for high growth in the coming years as the MEMS industry enters the mainstream semiconductor market. Companies founded in early 2000 have entered the top 30 MEMS manufacturers along side the larger semiconductor players. If the first focus was the miniaturization of printers and selected sensors, the MEMS industry provides now a broad range of new products and applications in the defense, automotive, industrial, communication and consumer markets.

The MEMS industry contains several high-growth opportunities for financial and strategic investors. Our analysis shows that in the past 3 years, more than 35 strategic investments have been done through acquisitions. In the same period, VC’s have invested more than $800M in the industry

The economic cycle will impact the financial transaction market. Opportunities will arise rapidly for MEMS companies as investors seek to solidify positions necessary for future growth. Execution of corporate strategy will require additional capital.

So, now is the time for most of the MEMS companies to adapt their growth strategy in leveraging their value with the help of Yole Développement’s report

This report provides MEMS companies with key data to conduct their own benchmarking and first assessment of their company’s value. Companies and investors will also have a clear picture of what happened in the MEMS area with a detailed database of more than 400 financial transactions since 1998.
