March 11, 2010 (MMD Newswire) -- The Infoshop by Global Information would like to present a new market research report, "2010 Sensors and MEMS" by Databeans, Inc.
Research and analysis projects that both sensors and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) combined will reach 9.2 billion shipped unites and achieve approximately $9.2 billion in total global sales for 2010. The MEMS and sensors market will grow at an 10% annual average and it is forecasted that this market will reach $15.2 billion by the year 2015. Microelectromechanical systems and sensors are widely used in various different end segments and play a central role in the semiconductor market. MEMS are actuator, sensor, or structural devices produced on a nano scale.
They generally consist of a central unit that processes data, the microprocessor and several components that interact with the outside (e.g. micro sensors). MEMS devices are used in a range of applications, which includes: automobile accelerometers, displays, pressure sensing, microfluidic, and optical switching and alignment in data communications. The MEMS and sensors market continues to grow as the processes that enable semiconductor technology to be more precise and even smaller continually advance.
According to this report, Databeans classifies the sensors market into three main product categories: pressure sensors, magnetic field sensors, and temperature sensors. The leading suppliers of sensors all concentrate heavily on the automotive market, while most of their revenue is generated from temperature sensors and actuators. Leading sensor suppliers include: Bosch, Infineon, and Freescale.
