The US market for micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) will grow over 19 percent annually through 2008. Gains will be driven by further tech sector recovery, advances in MEMS design and fabrication, and expanding uses. Best prospects include optical switches for telecom carrier and corporate networks; RF switches and relays for wireless phones; biochips; and tire pressure monitors.
This study analyzes the $1.4 billion US MEMS industry. It presents historical demand data (1993, 1998 and 2003) and forecasts to 2008 and 2013 by product (e.g., sensors, actuators, switches and relays, displays, passive components); and by application (e.g., automotive, information processing, biomedical, telecommunications, consumer, industrial, military/aerospace).
The study also examines the market environment, reviews technology, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 48 industry competitors including Analog devices, Calient Networks, Delphi, Glimmerglass Networks, MEMSCAP, Motorola, and Texas Instruments.
