This is a market that is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 9 percent over the next five years, due to higher consuming applications emerging from the communications market, such as smartphones, new computing devices like tablet PCs, and the high growth seen in automotive applications such as with airbag systems and tire pressure sensors.
The MEMs and Sensors market is a dynamic market with many suppliers specializing in different products, including microfluidic MEMs devices, pressure sensors, yaw rate sensors, accelerometers, optical MEMs, temperature sensors, magnetic field sensors, and other MEMs and actuators. Major growth markets include tablets and smart phones with strong demand for accelerometers, and sensors used in the automotive market.
2012 Worldwide Worldwide Sensors And MEMs Market Forecast (Revenue, Units and ASP)
Asia Pacific is the largest and fastest growing region in terms of generating MEMS revenue, as Taiwan has become a center for MEMS activity, especially in the production of high volume products by the many foundries established there.
Currently Computer, Industrial, and Automotive are the largest consumption markets for sensors and MEMS, but most of the growth over the next five years will be seen in Communications, as smartphones provide more opportunities and optical networks are further developed.
The top five suppliers for 2011 included Hewlett Packard, AKM Semiconductor, Bosch, Texas Instruments and Infineon Technologies, while the rest of the market remained highly fragmented; HP continued to lead based upon its successful global printhead business, AKM, Bosch, and Infineon all rank high among suppliers on the basis of automotive and other technologies, and Texas Instruments leads in MEMS on the strength of its DLP portfolio.
