MEMS Industry Status 2013: MEMS for Cell Phones & Tablets Reviewed in New Market Research Reports Available with adds new MEMS market research reports on status of MEMS industry in 2013 as well as MEMS for cell phones and tablets.

DALLAS, July 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- MEMS market is growing dynamically and will be worth US$22.5b in 2018 whereas demand for new sensors will make the MEMS market for cell phones and tables worth $6.4B 2018. In 2012, the MEMS sector managed another 10% growth to become an $11B business. Analysts expect a 12-13% CAGR through 2018 growing to 23.5 billion units. Within the cell phones and tables industry, sometime in 2013, evolution is still expected in value partitioning, in particular with sensor fusion integration in the application processor. Also, as the value chain continues moving and novel architectures appear, new killer functionalities will hit the market. In particular, an ecosystem for context awareness or indoor navigation is put in place, with technology demonstrations (such as Movea's recent demo at CES) and release of the first commercial chipsets enabling new sensor and data fusion concepts (Qualcomm iZat, Gimbal, CSR SiRFusion Platform, etc.).


The report "Status of the MEMS Industry 2013" ( shows how the results of MEMS players top 30 and companies with the largest growth clarify just how much the smartphone market is driving MEMS demand. AAC Technologies had strong sales of MEMS microphones that propelled them to 90% growth and $65 million in MEMS revenues, putting them in the Top 30 for the first time. More microphones in more phones also helped propel sales to grow more than 20% at both Infineon and Knowles. Consumer and mobile applications are the fastest growing areas for MEMS, having a strong impact on many developments happening at the moment. The report shows that pressure sensors started to be produced in large volumes for cell phone applications in 2012 and MEMS microphones are still growing, boosted by the integration of multiple microphones in smartphones. It is interesting to note the market for standalone accelerometers is decreasing as mobile devices increasingly use combo sensors. There is high demand for compact devices, partially offset by the growth of 6-axis e-compass for low-end smartphones. Adoption of 6-axis IMUs is now strong and 9-axis combos should follow within a few years. This push from the consumer side drives MEMS players to adopt new strategies.

For the first time, Status of the MEMS Industry 2013 report available for purchase @, also includes a section dedicated to ASIC for MEMS and the MEMS manufacturing evolution.  With an estimated market value of $3.3B, the ASIC MEMS market is important, subject to technical challenges as the coming of combos shifts the ASIC needs from standalone MEMS sensor die to integrated systems where a sensor is an integral part of a complete sensor solution. The ASIC design is such a critical part of MEMS sensor with specifi c knowhow that big MEMS companies sometimes prefer to outsource this development.
