Status of the MEMS Industry
Yole Développement has just released its 2006 version of its best seller report “Status of the MEMS industry”. This report describes the evolution of the MEMS industry, the business models, its possible evolutions. According to Jean Christophe Eloy,” The latest YOLE forecasts were indicating that MEMS markets will grow from $ 5.1B to $ 9.7B, representing an annual growth rate close to 15%. Due to the strong growth of the consumer applications, especially in the mobile phone industry, the growth rate is lower than the previous years in term of revenue; the unit growth will be much higher, close to 20%.
The shift from industrial applications consumer applications is driving the MEMS market. More and more semiconductor companies are involved in MEMS manufacturing (all the TOP 50 semiconductor companies are involved in MEMS manufacturing or development). New strategies are emerging with product introduction targeting module approach instead of sensor delivery in order to provide more added-value and avoid price erosion.
For the first time, Yole Développement is analysing the 20 most innovative companies and start-up involved in MEMS design and manufacturing, providing trends for the future growth of MEMS markets ( trends in units, revenues, market shares, business trends and who is doing what in the TOP 5 companies per applications…) and describing innovative developments: Silicon based micro motor for consumer applications, Energy harvesting systems using MEMS as building blocks, Integrated 2 axis gyroscopes and liquid lenses for consumer application , Portable projection modules, MEMS based memory, Microfuell cells, Automated distribution frames using MEMS as technology replacement, Innovative fluidic systems, Innovative MEMS display.
