The Latest Status of the MEMS Industry is Covered in This Detailed Market Report.

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "MIS'08 - Status of the MEMS Industry" report to their offering.

This report provides an unique analysis of the evolution of the MEMS markets, from devices to production equipment and materials business, from manufacturing infrastructure to the evolution of the MEMS foundries and fabless companies. For the 5th year, the report is providing a complete update of the MEMS applications, analyzing application by application the market trends and the involvement of the key industrial companies.

- Only available report providing a complete vision and analysis of the MEMS industry, from end customers to devices and equipment and materials manufacturers

- Detailed analysis of the evolution of MEMS in each major geographical areas

- Be sure to have identified the major trends that are impacting the MEMS business and learn from others what are the answers put in place by the different MEMS manufacturers

The MEMS business and MEMS industry are changing. For the first year, the MEMS business will almost reached $8B in 2008, with strong growth of the consumer applications but also for most of the applications in automotive, medical and industrial business. In volume, the growth of the MEMS markets is reaching 30% per year.

Pushed by this growth, most of the large MEMS manufacturers are either investing in new 8" lines are transferring their production to MEMS foundries. More than 10 companies have already moved from 6" to 8" manufacturing line and more than 10 companies will follow very rapidly.

A large number of devices under development since 5 years are now commercialized (pico projector, MEMS oscillator, RF switches, night vision micro bolometers...) and are fueling the growth of the MEMS business for the next 5 years. In addition, the report is providing an overview of the new companies created in 2007 and beginning of 2008 in MEMS, the new investments made, the M&A. in order to have an updated analysis of the changes and movement of the MEMS companies.

This analysis is based on more than 1,500 contacts made every year by YOLE Developpement with MEMS companies and customers of MEMS companies. 18 full time analysts are collecting information on a day to day basis with all the MEMS manufacturers and their customers.
