The global market for Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and sensors is expanding at a magnificent growth rate and will continue this trend throughout the forecast period (2016-2027), states Market Research Future (MRFR) in its extensive report. The market growth is a result of the implementation of the digital economy, internet of things (IoT), robots, drones, self-driving cars, and artificial intelligence. Growing opportunities in automotive, consumer electronics, mobile, medical and industrial segments drive the market growth for MEMS and sensors globally.
However, causing hindrance to the market growth are functional and operational issues. On the other hand, there are emerging opportunities, including the newer IoT applications. Adding to the profitable situation, companies are keeping low prices to attract customers, in turn spurring the demand for the market. Product development and enhancement is another strategy that lures customers. For instance, in January 2018, NextInput, Inc., the leader in MEMS-based force sensing solutions, launched ForceGauge™, the world’s highest performance strain sensor. This new strain sensor has numerous advantages over existing strain gauges, which include much better sensitivity and performance over temperature, thus creating an excellent user experience.
The global MEMS and sensors market is segmented on the basis of materials, components, and application.
