Driven by smartphones & microfluidic applications, emerging MEMS will account for 10% of the value of the total MEMS business by 2018.



Innovation in MEMS stays very active

Innovation in MEMS no longer comes solely from new devices, but also from the integration of mature MEMS technologies into new applications. Along with mature devices used for new applications (e.g. pressure for LBS), innovation in new MEMS devices is still active and will continue to strongly participate to the MEMS market growth in the next 5 years.

This report on emerging MEMS looks at the new MEMS technologies that, as a group, are expected to represent almost 10% of the value of the general MEMS market by 2018. The market will be mainly driven by medical applications – especially pharmaceutical research through DNA sequencing – and by consumer applications through innovations in mobile phones. Most of this growth is expected to take place after 2015, once products have been qualified and are suitable for volume manufacturing.



Emerging MEMS challenge: Dream vs. Reality

The dream:
After several decades of commercial existence, MEMS devices can now rely on a solid foundation for new developments. The time from R&D to commercialization has shrunk over the years, from 21 years for pressure sensors back in the 60’s to 11 years for oscillators. MEMS devices have been successful in fields with very high volumes, and have been proven capable of generating big profits. When you look at MEMS devices, you think about large volumes, and inexpensive devices; all aiming at the golden nugget that is the consumer market. This is where emerging MEMS devices try to go!

The reality:
An important barrier still exists for new devices: the cost reduction step before commercial rampup. Most of the emerging MEMS companies are fabless start-ups that rely on the large worldwide MEMS foundry capabilities. These start-ups with new MEMS-based devices such as micro speakers, autofocus or micro-fuel cells aim at the consumer market for their commercial entrance. But this is without going through the usual “small volumes” phase in niche markets that can enable progressive cost reduction and product maturation. Those companies now face a great challenge: the price pressure of the consumer market.


This ambition to go fast and rapidly target large volumes induces numerous supply chain challenges for those emerging MEMS start-ups. They want their foundry partner to be able to provide fast process transfer, to have fast yield improvement, and provide full solutions from front-end to packaging. This is one of the reasons why some MEMS developments, long awaited for, are still a few years away from mass commercialization...

    • © 2013• 4 Yole Développement Copyrights 2013 – Emerging MEMS Report Key Report Objectives • MEMS technologies have and will always be driven by innovation. It means that, every year, new MEMS developments are coming out. These developments will not necessarily turn into commercial success. But it shows there will always be applications where MEMS devices could be used. • For a long time, the MEMS market has mostly been composed of “mature” MEMS devices: IJ heads, pressure sensors, accelerometers and DMD. Then came microfluidics, gyroscopes, micro phones, RF MEMS, oscillators, IR imagers and sensors, compasses. • Besides these devices, there are a lot of new MEMS that have crossed the gap between R&D and commercialization and/or are close to doing so. This report presents these new “Emerging” MEMS devices that could be the next killer application of tomorrow. • This report presents a market and technical overview for new MEMS devices: – Auto Focus – Chemical, radiation sensors – Micro speakers – Scanning micro mirrors – Si microfluidics – ID MEMS – Energy Harvesting – Microdisplays – Switches – Touch Screens – AOC MEMS – Micro fuel cells • For every device, the report describes the device, the current state of the art, the technical/economical challenges, the players, market forecast.
