MEMS (Micro-Electromechanical System) Sensor Market to Grow 3.3X by 2027; COVID-19 Continues to Challenge Production Capacity
Published : 04 Jun 2020 Industry: Technology
The global MEMS sensors market is projected to grow 3.3X to hit the market valuation of ~US$ 75 Bn by the end of assessment period (2020-2027). Consumer electronics remain key application area of MEM sensors, and account for a majority of the total market value. Mounting demand for customized and intelligent cars has resulted in opening up numerous opportunities for MEMS sensor market players. Furthermore, advancement in telecom industry and introduction of NGN along with increasing popularity of FTTH services have resulted in increasing demand for MEMS sensors as optical sensors.
According to the Fact.MR study, polymer fabricated MEMS sensor is expected to be the most attractive segment, due to their high functional properties. Increasing usage of polymer fabricated MEMS in automotive, medical, and biotechnology industries will continue to offer tailwinds to the market growth. However, the recent outbreak of the Covid-19 has caused significant downside risks for global consumer electronics and automotive industries. Nationwide lockdowns are further showing significant effect on production and supply chain operations, which will create a hindrance in the market growth.
