The MEMS Sensor Market Size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.8% from 2021-2028. The global MEMS sensor market size was valued at US$2,731 million in 2018 and is projected to reach US$6,717 million by 2028, with an annual growth rate of 12.8%.
MEMS stands for Micro electro-mechanical systems. MEMS sensors are a type of sensor that is created using micro-fabrication techniques which enable the integration of sensing elements, actuators, and electronics on one integrated circuit (IC) chip.
On the basis of Types, the market is segmented into MEMS pressure sensors, MEMS inertial sensors, MEMS microphones, and others.
MEMS pressure sensors are used in automotive applications, and others were measuring high or low pressures is needed. These sensors can measure the air flow by sensing changes in atmospheric pressure. MEMS microphones also use piezoelectric material to detect sound waves at a certain frequency range that can be converted into electrical signals.
MEMS inertial sensors are the most common in MEMS, because of their ultra-high sensitivity and low cost. These types of devices can measure acceleration, angular rate (angular velocity), rotation angle with a high level of precision for use as an orientation sensor or gyroscope.
They provide excellent performance when integrating them into mobile phones to sense movement from the phone's accelerometer, gyroscopes, magnetometers, and other components that track device movements while performing tasks like gaming or navigating around buildings on foot. One downside is that they require more power than other types of sensors due to this higher sensitivity level. This results in shorter battery life for smartphones using these chips compared to those without them.
MEMS microphones are used in applications such as conference rooms and call centers. They have a very wide dynamic range with a frequency response of up to 20 kHz, which makes them ideal for environments where there is a high level of noise present. MEMS Microphones can be circular or linear depending on the application requirements. Their small size also makes them lightweight so they can easily fit inside devices like smartphones, laptops, tablets, and wireless headsets without adding any noticeable weight to them.
On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into Medical, Consumer Electronics, and Automotive. In the consumer electronics application segment, MEMS microphones are used in smartphones, laptops, tablets, etc., whereas in medical applications they can be found in hearing aids and stethoscopes.
The MEMS pressure sensor type is used in blood pressure monitors, heart rate monitors, and digital ear thermometers. They are also found in the application of medical equipment such as ECG machines, advanced imaging systems, and ultrasound parts because they have high resolution, low power consumption features. In addition to this their accuracy levels are also very high which makes them a preferred choice for healthcare companies when manufacturing these types of devices.
MEMS sensors are used in consumer electronics for a variety of purposes. These include the use of accelerometers and gyroscopes to determine orientation, microphones to detect sound or ambient noise, pressure sensors which can be found on touch screens as well as being embedded into some smartwatches, a proximity sensor that detects objects close by such as ones hidden behind a desk, etc., temperature sensors (for detecting surface temperatures) while also monitoring internal body temperature when placed inside an ear canal, humidity sensing devices like those measuring relative humidity levels at different locations throughout buildings under construction.
MEMS inertial sensors are utilized mainly by the automotive industry due to their efficiency at detecting motion changes under varying degrees of acceleration or deceleration conditions. This is due to a MEMS inertial sensor's ability to determine the orientation of an object or person with respect to gravity.
MEMS pressure sensors are used by the automotive industry for their efficient and accurate measurement of variable air pressures within engine intake tracts, turbochargers, etc., while also providing information necessary for emission control systems that reduce both emissions and fuel economy (by minimizing knock-sensor operation).
On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa.
The North American region is expected to dominate the MEMS sensors market in terms of revenue due to the high growth rate for the automotive industry and upsurge in demand for the consumer electronics sector.
In the Asia Pacific, the automotive industry is expected to be the principal driver for growth in this region, with China and India making notable progress.
In terms of revenue (in million UDS), North America occupied 40% share of the total MEMS sensors market in 2017 followed by the Asia Pacific with 25%, Europe with 18%, Latin America with 12%, and the Middle East & Africa with a mere 11%.
The market growth is driven by the increasing demand for MEMS sensors in automotive and consumer electronics applications. However, the limitation of these devices due to their high costs may restrain the market growth. Other factors that are expected to fuel the market growth include technological advancements such as miniaturization & integration of MEMS sensors with CMOS technology which will result in reduced cost per unit, the proliferation of various application domains including medical and industrial end-users.
Other Growth factors are the stable economic condition in various regions, the increasing demand for MEMS sensors due to their versatility and low power consumption.
