Sensors take growth baton in the MEMS market

Posted by Digitimes

Driven by new demand from consumer electronics and wireless applications, the global market for Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) will expand to US$8.8 billion in 2012, up from $6.1 billion in 2006, iSuppli predicts. "The markets for mainstay MEMS actuator products – like inkjet heads and Digital Light Processor (DLP) chips from Texas Instruments – finally have passed the baton to MEMS sensors to drive the next growth wave in the market," said Jeremie Bouchaud, director and principal analyst, MEMS, for iSuppli.
