MEMS & Sensors

More from:

MEMS remains a bright spot in the semiconductor world, expanding faster than the overall chip industry. Consumer and mobile applications continue to be the leading MEMS segments despite saturation of the handset and tablet markets. Even so, other areas are emerging as the next major drivers of MEMS market growth, such as the IoT impacting the industrial space, as well as mandates on safety sensors attaining full implementation in automotive.

Follow both leading and potential high-value future products for semiconductors—including opportunities for the MEM business in its automotive, consumer electronics, mobile, medical and industrial segments—with our wide-ranging research and analysis.
