MEMS Packaging Market Analysis

The global MEMS packaging market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 17.8% during the forecast period (2022- 2027). Owing to the increase in global demand for smart automotive solutions, the need for the MEMS packaging market is expected to go up. The increasing demand for connected devices and consumer electronics is expected to drive the market for sensors. Additionally, the global industrial sensor usage is soaring due to the ever-increasing applications of sensors, driving the demand for MEMs devices. 

  • MEMS packaging has evolved from packaging MEMS devices to packaging MEMS systems as the application of MEMS devices has expanded significantly. Innovative and efficient packaging technology is becoming increasingly important, as are new packaging materials.
  • The recent technological development of CMOS-compatible MEMS manufacturing processes for low-temperature wafer bonding and other single-chip integration are among the driving innovations in the MEMS packaging market. Another emerging trend is the application of bare wafer stacks for low-cost lead-free semiconductor packages. This enables a low-cost, small-pin package for high-volume production.
  • The increasing adoption of MEMS is also contributing to new demand in the embedded die packaging market. The technology is not unique to the market, but its high cost and low yields have diversified it into niche applications, but the potential for future development is immense. Advancements in Bluetooth and RF modules and the rise of WiFi-6 will likely accelerate investment in this technology further.
  • The growing adoption of MEMS devices is also encouraging the MEMS packaging vendors to develop innovative packaging techniques further to enhance these devices' efficiency and operational performances. For instance, in 2021, T-SMART, a leading semiconductor manufacturing company, announced that it is working towards a new MEMS packaging technology based on Heterogeneous Integration for the thermopile sensor.
  • Furthermore, according to IEEE, MEMS packaging is more challenging than IC packaging due to the diversity of MEMS devices and the need for many devices to be in contact with and protected from the environment simultaneously. In addition, there are also challenges within MEMS packaging, such as die handling, die attachment, interfacial tension, and outgassing. These new MEMS packaging challenges require urgent R&D efforts.
  • The usage of MEMS in the chip industry has witnessed immense growth as technology companies around the world accelerated innovation in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The need for tiny devices drives advances in electronics, ranging from thermal imaging and faster point-of-care testing to microfluidics-based polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tools and techniques to detect SARS-CoV-2. However, the pandemic has changed the perception of the global supply chain in manufacturing, where more localized value chains and regionalization have come into the picture.
