Global Mobile MEMS Market to be Worth $2.5 bn by End of 2012, Suggests Visiongain05 Sep 2012 • by Natalie Aster
The commercial success of smart devices is boosting the demand for content and mobile apps. Device manufacturers are looking for ways to differentiate their product by offering devices with new and innovative functionalities such as inertial sensors, digital compasses, and improved video and audio components.
The appeal of incorporating MEMS within mobile devices is largely due to the fact that they enable a more interactive user experience due to their technical capabilities. The user interface has become increasingly important to original equipment manufacturers and this is driving a boom in MEMS manufacturing for the mobile and consumer electronics industry. By the end of 2012, the global mobile MEMS market is estimated to be worth $2.5 billion.
According to the report “The Mobile Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS) Market 2012-2017: Smartphones, Tablets, Netbooks, E-readers, Ultrabooks” by Visiongain, the mobile MEMS market is set for dynamic growth in the next five years, as OEMS incorporate evermore MEMS in smartphones, tablets, netbooks, E-readers and ultrabooks. The successful launch of the iPhone and iPad by Apple has ramped up competition within the MEMS industry between mature players and new market entrants.

MEMS can drive greater consumption of content by enhancing multimedia experiences. A whole host of different industries, such as gaming, music, entertainment and social networks can enhance their services for smart devices by taking advantage of the capabilities which MEMS can offer. Ultimately, each industry will bring their own specialties to the table which will contribute greatly to drive the adoption of mobile MEMS.
Visiongain has determined that the largest mobile MEMS submarkets will be gyroscopes and accelerometers in 2012. Microphones and RF MEMS will also command substantial market share, although to a lesser extent than the inertial sensors market. The MEMS industry will be concentrated in North America, with Asia Pacific and Europe not far behind. However, the most dynamic growth will essentially take place in Asia Pacific.
