Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) Technology: Current and Future Markets

Jan 2010| SMC051C| BCC Publishing

Report Highlights

  • The global market for MEMS devices and production equipment was worth $7.2 billion in 2008, and $7.6 billion in 2009. This market will reach $13.2 billion in 2014, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.8% between 2009 and 2014.
  • Microfluidic MEMS were the largest segment of the MEMS market in 2008 but are expected to lose market share. This sector was valued at $3.5 billion in 2009 and is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4% to reach $4.3 billion in 2014.
  • Accelerometers, which have a projected compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 29.9% through 2014, are expected to be the second-largest MEMS market segment (after microfluidics MEMS), with more than 20% of the market. This sector was valued at $720 million in 2009 and is expected to be worth $2.7 billion by 2014.

Report Highlights

  • Microfluidic MEMS were the largest segment of the MEMS market in 2004, with a market share of over 44%. MEMS inkjet heads totalled $1.8 billion or almost 40% of the global MEMS market in 2004.
  • Optical MEMS accounted for nearly 20% of the market in 2004 and MEMS pressure sensors over 18%.
  • Accelerometers, which have a projected AAGR of 45% between 2005 and 2010, are expected to be the second largest MEMS market segment by 2010, with over 22% of the market. Gyroscopic MEMS and particularly RF MEMS are also projected to gain significant market share between 2004 and 2010.

Report Highlights

  • By 2007, market revenues will approach $26.4 billion, at an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 19.1%.
  • Transportation and consumer products currently are two of the largest market sectors, representing respectively, some 31% and 36% of current revenues.
  • By 2005, lab-on-a-chip products and services should finally enter the market place in large quantities.
  • MEMS sales in both fiber-optics equipment and wireless systems, including next generation cell phones, will be the major market drivers in the telecom industry.
  • However, there still are impediments to growth in almost every sector.
