Global Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) - Market Overview
Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) devices or microdevice usually has a dimension of a few microns to a few millimeters. The width of human hair is of the order of 80 microns. The dimensions of the microdevices are even smaller than the dimensions of the microdevices. A MEMS system is the combination of a few MEMS sensors and MEMS actuators which work harmoniously to provide specific functionality. The main advantages of micro devices are low cost, accurate sensing, low space, and low energy consumption. MEMS devices are usually classified into sensors and actuators.
The Global Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) Market was worth USD XX billion in 2018 and is forecast to reach USD XX billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period (2018-2025).
Global Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) Market- Market Dynamics
Increase in sales of smartphones, widespread internet connectivity, rising demand for wearable technologies like smartwatches and the growing market for IoT devices are the key factors responsible for boosting the growth of the Global microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) market.
Increasing adoption of wearable technologies like smartwatches is the primary factor boosting the global microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) market. For instance, Apple in September 2018 launched the 'Apple Series 4 iWatch' which is embedded with an electric heart sensor which helps in recording the ECG of a person by measuring the atrial fibrillation (Afib), a form of irregular rhythm. Technological advancements in wearable technologies in integrating the number of sensors is another key contributing factor. According to a report by the United States National Library of Medicine, only 1.7% of wearable devices in 2016 comprised of more than five sensors and this figure increased to 11% in 2017. This growth rate can be ascribed to the advancements in compactness of sensors. Furthermore, according to the consumer technology association, the global sales revenue from wearable technologies in 2017 increased to USD billion compared to USD 15 billion in 2016 and USD 9 billion in 2015. The growth of the wearable technologies market is a significant factor fueling the growth of the global microelectromechanical systems market.
However, high development costs of MEMS devices, government regulations and reliability issues of MEMS devices are the crucial factors hampering the growth of the Global microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) market.
New Innovations can quickly gain prominence amongst the end-users before the government organizations can regulate them. For instance, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission imposed regulations on the Fitbit force which was responsible for causing skin irritation to the users. Fitbit Inc had to recall more than 1million units in the US and about 28000 units in Canada incurring considerable losses to the company. The government regulations imposed upon wearable devices comprising of MEMS devices is a primary factor impeding the growth of the global microelectromechanical systems market.
