Abstract: The MEMS markets in 2006 reached US$ 5.8 B and we can estimate that the 2011 MEMS markets will reach more than US $ 10.7 B, with very diverse growth rate depending on the devices and the applications: silicon microphone and RF MEMS are the fastest growing applications but the existing applications like ink jet head and pressure sensors are still growing at a rate of 4 % per year at least.


The industrial infrastructure is changing, with more and more companies going to 8’’ manufacturing facilities and the strong growth of the MEMS foundry business.


MEMS business is changing for more structured industry and high volume production.


Keywords: MEMS markets, MEMS industry, MEMS
