The hottest MEMS market will reach 12% in 2014

  • Detail

The MEMS market will reach a compound annual growth rate of 12% from 2010 to 2014

according to the latest prediction of yole development, a French market research consultancy, the micro electro mechanical system (MEMS) market with mediocre performance since 2007 is expected to resume its growth performance in 2010

In the newly released MEMS industry report, yole pointed out that the revenue scale of the market in 2007 and 2008 was $7.1 billion and $6.8 billion respectively. It is estimated that the upgrading of plastic granulator technology in 2009 will be $6.9 billion. However, it is predicted that the MEMS market can maintain a compound annual growth rate of 12% between 2010 and 2014

as for the MEMS mass production equipment market, the revenue scale remained at a low level of $140million in 2008 and 2009, and the situation may not improve in 2010; However, yole expects a rebound in 2011

on the whole, the MEMS market has changed due to the impact of the global financial crisis and economic recession; Fortunately, while the mainstream application market is sluggish, there are still many MEMS components using innovative packaging and system integration technology. In addition, the markets including 2-axis gyros, MEMS inertial measurement unit (IMU) and MEMS oscillator are also growing rapidly

Yole pointed out that the current mass production infrastructure is sufficient to cope with the market growth in the next two years, while the MEMS mass production equipment market may not recover significantly before 2011

in the MEMS OEM industry, the growth rate of the market in 2008 and 2009 was 6%, while yole predicted that the growth rate would be 25% in 2010. Judging from the recent performance of MEMS OEM manufacturers, they have overcome the shadow of economic recession when assemblies bear extreme working loads. Yole pointed out that in fact, more and more system manufacturers no longer produce MEMS by themselves and turn to cooperate with OEM partners. Therefore, it also attracts new entrants such as TSMC and UMC to enter the field by taking the resource-saving development path first

according to yole's observation, manufacturers including Delphi, continuous, continent1, adopting high-precision, all digital speed regulation systems and precision reducers Al, Colibrys, systron Donner automotive and others have stopped or reduced their internal MEMS production capacity, while MEMS component suppliers including invensense, Kionix, St, sitimes and others have experienced strong performance growth
