MEMS in medical electronics and military/aerospace

January 10, 2013

Growing use of disposable devices and respiratory monitoring are underpinning growing use of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) used as pressure sensors in medical electronics, according to IHS iSuppli. Medical electronics is a relatively small slice of the overall market for MEMS pressure sensors. Sales of such devices rose 6%-7% in 2012 to $137.6M, with steady growth continuing through 2016. But they’re in the “high-value” category where suppliers can command much higher average selling prices. Another high-value MEMS category, industrial and military/aerospace, raked in about $283M in 2012.
