MEMS Sector to See Strong Growth for the Coming Years

Research and Markets, the leading source for international market research and market data, has announced the addition of "World MEMS Equipment + Materials Market Report" to their offering.


The MEMS sector will see strong growth for the coming years because of many new products enabled by MEMS devices.

Consumer applications (such as Wii, iPhone, PicoP picoprojector .) will be major contributors to the 17% average growth for the next five years.
The automotive market will have modest growth of a few % while wireless telecommunications and bio medical will experience double digit growth. This healthy business will drive the need for production tools (etching, litho .) and materials (wafers, chemistry .) as more and more MEMS makers will ramp up production.

Among the most dramatic MEMS developments, the US regulation for tire pressure sensors will boost the production to 7 million in unit shipments. In 2008, production for Si microphones will begin in earnest. Consumer demand will boost accelerometers and gyroscopes (motion sensing in game controllers, optical stabilization systems .).

Cost decreases for micro bolometers should open the way to new markets (thermography, automotive). Micro displays for pico projectors should reach millions of units over the next years.

The "World MEMS Equipment & Materials Market 2008" ("WMEM 08") is the new Yole report describing the trends and opportunities for equipment and materials for MEMS production.

This report provides an analysis of the different MEMS devices: IJ heads, pressure sensors, Si microphones, accelerometers, gyroscopes, MOEMS, microbolometers, microdisplays, microfluidics for research, diagnostics and drug delivery, RF MEMS, micro tips & probes, micro fuel cells and emerging MEMS devices.

For every MEMS device, a description is given for market outlook, key players, new applications and manufacturing trends.

WMEM 08 is giving precise market data for MEMS devices but also for wafers, production tools and MEMS specific chemistry for MEMS manufacturing.
Market share and competitive analysis for mems vendors is presented.
