New Report Predicts MEMS Market Will Double over Next Six Years

Published on August 5, 2013 at 5:15 AM

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Status of the MEMS Industry 2013" report to their offering.

MEMS market will double over the next 6 years, pushing manufacturers to consider consumer applications in their strategies

MEMS IS STILL ON A DYNAMIC GROWTH PATH, TARGETING US$22.5B IN 2018

In 2012, the IC industry saw a 2% decline, but research reveals the MEMS sector managed another 10% growth to become an $11B business. Analysts expect a 12-13% CAGR through 2018 to create a $22.5B MEMS market, growing to 23.5 billion units. We have identifi ed a number of changes as old MEMS products mature and new ones emerge. Cell phone demand drove strong growth for MEMS devices. Inertial sensor maker InvenSense continued to prove the worth of its fabless model with a -30% increase in sales.

Triquint saw 27% growth as its BAW filters won more slots in smartphones. Status of the MEMS Industry 2013 shows markets for inkjet heads and DLPs have matured, but we see huge growth on the horizon for combination inertial sensors and for MEMS timing devices. Combination inertial sensors are starting to see high volume adoption in both consumer and automotive markets, and will quickly account for a significant part of inertial sensor sales.

Status of the MEMS Industry 2013 report identifies new innovative MEMS devices that continue to emerge. We expect to see a number of them start production, though not reach signifi cant volumes for a few years. MEMS autofocus could come to market shortly. Big smartphone players are now looking at adding environmental sensors for heat and humidity, and MEMS devices could win those slots.
