Global Information would like to present a new market research report, "Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) Technology: Current and Future Markets" by BCC Research.
The growth in the use of MEMS has also led to the creation of supporting industries in areas such as MEMS design software, design services, specialty fabrication equipment, and fabrication facilities.
Although MEMS are an established industry, it is important to avoid "hyping" its prospects, especially the hype that can divert investment from MEMS with real commercial potential. To the extent that hype results in exaggerated investor expectations that are subsequently disappointed, it can lead to a drying-up of investment funds, such as happened in the dot.com sector after 2000. This report takes a hard look at the MEMS market and tries to provide a road map to the technologies and applications that are most likely to be successfully commercialized in the next 5 years.
