New Market Report on MEMS for Cell Phones and Tablets

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Concise Analysis of the MEMS for Cell Phones and Tablets Market" report to their offering.

This report describes why some of these emerging MEMS (speakers, oscillators, chemical sensors, switches, auto-focus, etc.) will ramp up in volume almost overnight, just as pressure and humidity sensors did in the past few months.

A nice 19% yearly growth is predicted for a market that reached $2.2B in 2012, and volume growth will be even more impressive, with 17.5B units expected by 2018, up from 4.5B in 2012.

Sensor fusion is heating up with its first commercial implementations!

As sensor popularity enables new applications, software is key for obtaining the best performance and functionalities. Sensor hubs appeared at the end of 2012, in Windows Phone architectures and also in some Android platforms such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S4, which integrate Atmel hub. This greatly impacts the MEMS value chain, since successful products must offer the right level of software and be qualified with sensor hubs in a timely manner.

Sometime in 2013, evolution is still expected in value partitioning, in particular with sensor fusion integration in the application processor. Also, as the value chain continues moving and novel architectures appear, new killer functionalities will hit the market. In particular, an ecosystem for context awareness or indoor navigation is put in place, with technology demonstrations (such as Movea's recent demo at CES) and release of the first commercial chipsets enabling new sensor and data fusion concepts (Qualcomm iZat, Gimbal, CSR SiRFusion Platform, etc.).

The most recent end-user trends shaping demand for nextgeneration MEMS devices are carefully analyzed in this report. In fact, one of the strongest impacts on sensor fusion architecture is the growth of connected devices and the use of the cell phone as a hub.
