Market Trends of MEMS Sensor Industry

This section covers the major market trends shaping the MEMS Sensor Market according to our research experts:

Automotive Sector Expected to Drive the Market Growth

  • MEMS sensors are used in the automobile industry and intelligent automobiles. MEMS sensor development is expected to focus on the automotive industry. It is widely used in engine e(ABS), electronic stability program (ESP), electronic control suspension (ECS), electric hand brake (EPB), slope starter auxiliary (HAS), tire pressure monitoring (EPMS), car engine stabilization, angle measure, and heartbeat detection, as well as adaptive navigation systems.
  • The increasing demand for safety and security in automobiles is one of the main factors that play a vital role in the market's growth. According to the WHO, more than 1.35 million people yearly are killed in road accidents. MEMS sensors play a critical role in improving the safety features of vehicles and act as a catalyst for the market's growth.
  • OMRON has newly released the FH-SMD Vision Sensor series for robot arms, which can be used for fast detection for humans and flexibility for auto-selection of the compartment. These can be mounted on a robot to recognize random (bulk) automotive parts in three sizes that are hard to use with conventional robots and improve productivity, thereby saving space, inspection, and pick and place.
  • For instance, in April 2022, Tata Motors announced projects to finance INR 24,000 crores (USD 3.08 billion) in its passenger motorcar business over the next five years. Furthermore, in March 2022, MG Motors, owned by China's SAIC Motor Corp., declared plans to expand USD 350-500 million in confidential equity in India to fund its future requirements, including EV expansion. Such developments in automobiles will further drive the studied market growth.
  • Furthermore, with the development of new intelligent vehicles, such as new energy vehicles and driverless vehicles, MEMS sensors may occupy a more significant share of the automotive sensor market in the future. Recently, InvenSense presented its vast portfolio of innovative MEMS sensor technologies at CES. For instance, it released the IMU IAM-20685 high-performance automotive 6-Axis MotionTracking sensor platform for ADAS and autonomous systems and TCE-11101, a miniaturized ultra-low-power MEMS platform for direct and accurate detection of CO2 in home, industrial, automotive, healthcare, and other applications.

Asia-Pacific Expected to Hold Significant Market Share

  • Asia-Pacific is anticipated to be the most extensive market for MEMS sensors due to economies, such as India, Japan, and China, along with the increasing growth of the consumer electronics and automobile segments. According to Cisco, this year, around 311 million and 439 million wearable device units are expected to be sold in Asia-Pacific and North America, respectively. This is further driving the demand for MEMS sensors in the region.
  • China has witnessed a significant increase in the usage of MEMS sensors in the past couple of years due to the rise in its automotive and consumer markets and the export of smartphones, tablets, drones, and other microsystem and semiconductor-enabled products. Multiple MEMS sensors, such as accelerometers, gyroscopes, pressure sensors, and radio frequency (RF) filters, have been imported into China for product assembly.
  • Moreover, the Chinese administration also views its automotive industry, including the auto parts sector, as one of the major industries. The Central Government expects China's automobile output to reach 35 million units in the next few years. This is posed to make the automotive sector one of the prominent uses of MEMS sensors in China.
  • According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the Indian appliances and consumer electronics (ACE) market has registered a CAGR of 9% to achieve INR 3.15 trillion (USD 48.37 billion) this year. The government has taken several initiatives to propel this product, including the National Policy on Electronics 2019, which aims to promote domestic electronic manufacturing and export a complete value chain to achieve a turnover of approximately USD 400 billion in the next few years. Such regional government initiatives are estimated to bolster the studied market.
  • The Indian automotive industry is well-positioned for growth economically and demographically, serving domestic interest and export possibilities, which will rise shortly. As a part of the Make in India scheme, the Government of India aims to make automobile fabricating the main driver for the initiative. The system is poised to make the passenger vehicles market rise to 9.4 million units in the next few years, as underlined in the 2016-26 Auto Mission Plan (AMP). This factor is expected to raise the adoption of MEMS sensors in the region's automotive sector.
  • Furthermore, Minbea Mitsumi Inc., based in Japan, recently announced that Mitsumi Electric Co. Ltd, a company subsidiary, has reached an agreement with Omron Corporation to acquire the semiconductor and MEMS Manufacturing plant as the MEMS product development function at OMRON's Yasu facility through MITSUMI. Acquiring the MEMS sensor business will strengthen Mitsumi's sensor business, which is one of its most important.
