Releases Report on Worldwide MEMS Market

LYON, France /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- announces that a new market research report related to the worldwide microelectronics market titled MIS'07 – Status of the MEMS Industry is now available from its catalogue. The report provides "all the detailed information needed to understand the MEMS markets and the evolution of the industry."

MEMS industry sales worldwide reached almost $6 billion in 2006 and has a compound annual growth rate of 14%.

New applications for consumer markets and the automotive industry are boosting the growth of MEMS businesses. At the same time, the product mix is changing: consumer and automotive applications are driving the industrial process from 6 in. to 8 in. wafer size.

Most new companies (startup or large players) are fabless or fablight, using the existing manufacturing infrastructure, either MEMS or IC foundries.

In addition to the analysis of the business and evolution of the industry, the MIS 07 report provides an exhaustive analysis of the evolution of each MEMS market (e.g., automotive, consumer, IT, and industrial) and application (e.g., MAP-BAP, camera stabilization, and ink jet head). Furthermore, the report focuses particular attention on emerging MEMS applications.

The analysis is based on the 1500 contacts made in the MEMS industry every year and on the day-to-day business and technology analysis carried out by our team of 18 experts. The report provides a unique global and in-depth view of the MEMS markets, from strategic analysis and industrial changes to device business and equipment and materials markets.

Compared with the market growth rate in value (14%), the number of manufactured MEMS devices per year is higher, at a rate of more than 25%. The difference is mainly due to the price decrease and the opening of new applications in consumer markets. Pressure on prices is a sign of the maturity of MEMS markets: infrastructure changes are needed.

This important growth rate varies with the application. The report analyzes in detail the application trends and market evolutions for each application in the automotive, medical, consumer, industrial, telecommunications, and aerospace fields.

Besides market segments analysis, the report provides information on latest venture rounds, M&A and industrial trends in MEMS manufacturing.

One section of the report provides updated analysis of the equipment and materials markets for MEMS manufacturing and the new technologies under development to decrease the price of MEMS manufacturing.

The report also analyzes the introduction of MEMS R&D and manufacturing in China, India, and other countries—new entrants to the MEMS markets.

Companies described in the report include Akusitca, AMS, Analog Devices, Avago Technologies, Bosch, Canon, Colibrys, Conti, Dalsa Semiconductor, Delphi, Denso, Discera, Flir, Freescale, GE, Honeywell, HP, IMT, Infineon, Kionix, Knowles Acoustics, Lexmark, Melexis, Micralyne, Murata, Olivetti, Omron, Panasonic, Seiko Epson, Schneider Electric, Silex, Silicon Sensing Systems, Silverbrook, SiTime, STM, TI, Ulis, and VTI Technologies.
