MEMS Sensor Market Analysis

The MEMS Sensor Market size is estimated at USD 17.18 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 26.65 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 9.17% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

The rising popularity of IoT in semiconductors, the growing need for smart consumer electronics and wearable devices, and the enhanced adoption of automation in industries and residences are some significant factors influencing the growth of the studied market.

  • MEMS sensors deliver multiple advantages, such as accuracy, reliability, and the prospect of making smaller electronic devices. As a result, they have gained considerable traction in the past few years. Miniaturized consumer devices, such as IoT-connected devices and wearables, are emerging applications of MEMS sensors in the market.
  • According to the IFR forecasts, global adoption is expected to increase significantly to 518,000 industrial robots operational across factories all around the globe in the next few years. The positive growth trajectory of the industrial robots market is expected to drive the demand for MEMS sensors during the same period.
  • Moreover, the demand for smartphones has been witnessing an upsurge owing to several factors increasing disposable income, the advent of 5G, and the development of telecom infrastructure. For instance, according to Ericsson, worldwide smartphone subscriptions are expected to reach 7,690 million in the next few years.
  • Furthermore, pressure sensors are anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate as they are used in numerous application areas, such as biomedicine, automotive electronics, small home appliances, and wearable and fitness electronics. Other MEMS sensors, such as microphones and ultrasonic MEMS sensors, environmental sensors, and microbolometers, are expected to hold a significant share of the market studied.
  • The US-based Boston Semi Equipment (BSE), a semiconductor test handler company, recently received repeat orders from automotive customers for multiple Zeus gravity test handlers configured for MEMS high-power and pressure IC testing applications. Zeus handlers have a flexible range for MEMS pressure sensing test cells and offer high voltage levels in a production handler for testing IGBT, MOSFET, gate drivers, GaN, and SiC power semiconductors.
  • In addition, the factors challenging the market's growth include the increase in the cost of MEMS sensors implementation due to interface design considerations and the lack of a standardized fabrication process of MEMS. The standardization in MEMS is undoubtedly less advanced than it is for conventional semiconductor processes and model environments. However, the standard procedure is bound to happen in the next few years, making the impact of the challenge gradually low in the next few years.
  • Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, certain types of MEMS sensors significantly spiked in demand. For instance, the demand for thermopiles and microbolometers used in temperature guns and thermal cameras increased because of the need for contactless monitoring of people's temperatures. Moreover, real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) diagnostic tests for detecting COVID-19 and microfluidics for DNA sequencing gained substantial market relevance.
  • Furthermore, pressure and flowmeters in ventilators grew because of hospital intensive care units (ICUs). Therefore, the pandemic highlighted the criticality of having a robust healthcare infrastructure, and the industry's subsequent developments are expected to propel market demand over the forecast period.
