FARMINGTON, Conn., May 29, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Global Information Inc. is pleased to announce two significant new reports on Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)

MEMS For Cell Phones & Tablets

Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) devices have proven extremely popular in mobile applications; despite this interest, however, only 3 categories of MEMS devices have high volume production today: Motion sensors, MEMS microphones, and BAW filters and duplexers. Many other MEMS products are still under development. Yole Development's new MEMS market research report, MEMS For Cell Phones & Tablets, highlights that novel MEMS opportunities need to be watched as they will fuel this market significantly: pressure sensors, inertial sensors, RF MEMS switches,  Oscillators, MEMS auto-focus, microdisplays, microspeakers, environmental sensors, touchscreen, joysticks.

The MEMS market tripled from 2009 to 2011, and the market for MEMS in cell phones and tablets will grow 19.8% to reach $5.4 billion in value by 2017. The ranking of the top players has also evolved the past 2 years: ST Microelectronics ranked third in 2009 and is now by far the number one supplier, with $477 million cellphone and tablet revenue in 2011. ST Microelectronics dominates the MEMS accelerometer market, had an impressive start with MEMS gyroscopes, and only is challenged by InvenSense while it continues to expand into many other MEMS devices to become a one-stop supplier.

This report will be available from Yole Development on June 5, 2012, but a pre-launch discount of 10% is available for orders placed on or before June 4, 2012.

BioMEMS: Impact on Healthcare

While Mobile applications may be a hot new category, biological micro-electromechanical systems (bioMEMS) are expected to revolutionize medical science and the way patients are treated and their value in the overall MEMS market cannot be overlooked. BioMEMS brings together interdisciplinary technologies to deliver efficient, sensitive, fast, low cost and less invasive methods for diagnostics and individualized treatment.

With MEMS technology, a sensor when implanted in the retina might restore some vision to the blind; detect heart failure with a device implanted in the body, or emulate the function of a kidney when implanted in the body in the form of a small device.

The new BioMEMS: Impact on Healthcare market research report focuses on technology penetration assessment, market opportunity and assessment, stakeholder and their impact. It offers a Technology Roadmap, Technology Value Chain and evaluates the BioMEMS business opportunity.
