Research and Markets: Concise Analysis of the MEMS for Cell Phones and Tablets Market
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/49pt37/mems_for_cell)
has announced the addition of the "Concise
Analysis of the MEMS for Cell Phones and Tablets Market" report
to their offering.
This report describes why some of these
emerging MEMS (speakers, oscillators, chemical sensors, switches,
auto-focus, etc.) will ramp up in volume almost overnight, just as
pressure and humidity sensors did in the past few months.
nice 19% yearly growth is predicted for a market that reached $2.2B in
2012, and volume growth will be even more impressive, with 17.5B units
expected by 2018, up fom 4.5B in 2012.
Sensor fusion is
heating up with its first commercial implementations!
sensor popularity enables new applications, software is key for
obtaining the best performance and functionalities. Sensor hubs appeared
at the end of 2012, in Windows Phone architectures and also in some
Android platforms such as the Samsung (News - Alert) Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S4, which
integrate Atmel hub. This greatly impacts the MEMS value chain, since
successful products must offer the right level of software and be
qualified with sensor hubs in a timely manner.
2013, evolution is still expected in value partitioning, in particular
with sensor fusion integration in the application processor. Also, as
the value chain continues moving and novel architectures appear, new
killer functionalities will hit the market. In particular, an ecosystem
for context awareness or indoor navigation is put in place, with
technology demonstrations (such as Movea's recent demo at CES) and
release of the first commercial chipsets enabling new sensor and data
fusion concepts (Qualcomm (News - Alert) iZat, Gimbal, CSR SiRFusion Platform, etc.).
The most recent end-user trends shaping demand for nextgeneration MEMS
devices are carefully analyzed in this report. In fact, one of the
strongest impacts on sensor fusion architecture is the growth of
connected devices and the use of the cell phone as a hub.
