Market Research Report on Global Medical MEMS Applications

Published on December 4, 2013 at 2:34 AM

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Medical MEMS Applications Market Report, 2019" report to their offering.

Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) are devices made up of miniaturized mechanical and electromechanical elements using micro fabrication techniques. MEMS comprises of miniaturized structures such as sensors, actuators and microelectronics. The prime elements are micro sensors and micro actuators. These are also called as transducers which help in the conversion of one form of energy into another. Technological advances have led to the development of a synergistic relation between unrelated fields such as biology and microelectronics. MEMS finds its application in medical sector especially diagnosis and biotechnology. There has been a paradigm shift of patient taking treatment from hospital to home care.

The rise in healthcare expenditure compounded by an aging population is driving the demand for portable medical diagnostic devices. In addition, the need for rapid diagnosis coupled with minimum turnaround time has compelled medical device manufacturers to focus on providing a single platform for multiple diagnostic tests. By leveraging MEMS, manufacturers can produce significantly smaller, low-power consumption connectors that deliver high performance than larger components used in devices. Governments across the globe have realized the potential of nanotechnology and MEMS in healthcare and are supporting the growth of this industry through significant funding. This has boosted the overall confidence of the entire value chain of MEMS industry right from foundries to the final product.

This report covers the market estimation of MEMS in healthcare applications in terms of value (USD million) for the period of 2013-2019, considering 2012 as the base year for calculation. In addition, the current market dynamics including the drivers, restraints, trends and recent developments have been captured throughout the report. The MEMS market in healthcare covers applications into major segments such as medical devices, biotechnology, therapeutics and diagnostics sector. We have done an in-depth analysis on further applications of MEMS sensors market in medical and diagnostic devices.
