The Promises of a Bright MEMS Future

The MEMS market continues to show signs of strength. While we expected a slight negative impact for MEMS in 2020 due to the associated weak end-system demand (smartphones and cars), MEMS sensors recovered during H2 2020, when manufacturers resumed refilling their inventories after visible signs of stabilization and recovery in key end markets. The MEMS device market eventually reached $12.1B, up more than 2% from the year earlier.

After a weak 2019 and 2020, the market is expected to grow by 11% in 2021, reaching $13.4B. Beyond 2021, a high-single digit growth will rise annual MEMS revenue to $18.2B by 2026.

Join me in this presentation to run through how this promised growth could be delivered by new emerging technologies and opportunities spanning from pMUT and cMUT devices to inertial and microphones for TWS and other wearables to optical MEMS in AR/VR & LIDAR – and not only!

We’ll discover together how MEMS are evolving, how the main stakeholders are behaving and how the ecosystem is developing.
