Bosch #1 Bosch reinforced its leadership in the MEMS industry in 2014 with a 16.6% increase to $1167 million up from $1001 million in 2013. Bosch alone held 12% of the very fragmented MEMS market in 2014 compared to 11% in 2012. Bosch took the leadership in 2013 thanks to his design in the Apple iPhone 5s and iPad with its accelerometer. Apple boosted Bosch’s MEMS revenue in 2014 again as Bosch is the sole supplier of the pressure sensors added to the iPhone 6 and 6+. Besides Apple, Bosch enjoyed a strong growth of its motion combo sensors with Sony both for gaming with the Sony PS4 and for handsets and tablets. Bosch started going after the consumer MEMS market in 2005 when it created Bosch Sensortec. It added MEMS microphone to its portfolio with the acquisition of Akustica in 2009. Bosch’s bet on consumer applications paid off as this segment now accounted for a third of Bosch’s total MEMS revenue in 2014 compared to less than 18% in 2012.
