MEMS: Status of the MEMS Industry 2014

DUBLIN, Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "MEMS: Status of the MEMS Industry 2014" report to their offering.

Although consumer applications will enjoy significant volume growth (around 20% expected between 2013- 2019), strong price pressure (-7% a year) will result in modest 13% revenue growth over the same time period. And although the MEMS sector achieved 10.4% overall growth in 2013, closing in on a US$12B business, established players are struggling to continue their usual consumer applications growth. If we look at the top MEMS players, we see that STMicroelectronics while still producing at high volume, is struggling to get good margins - even though it's shown impressive growth over the last several years, and reached US$1B sales in 2012 - the first MEMS company to do so. Meanwhile, Texas Instruments' DLP sales are flat, since pico projection applications are long to take off (at least for consumer applications), and the professional/commercial projection market isn't growing either. Also, Hewlett-Packard, the major inkjet heads player, has seen sales decline, as have most other inkjet heads companies.

Another characterization of the current MEMS industry is the fact that there is almost no new, big companies entering the business. Instead, newcomers have opted for a fabless model, thus minimizing their infrastructure investments.

Manish Dixit is VP of Product and Engineering at Dice. As the leader of the Product, Engineering and Data Sciences team at D...
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

If a machine can invent, does this mean the end of the patent system as we know it? The patent system, both in the US and Europe, allows companies to protect their inventions and helps foster innovation. However, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be set to disrupt the patent system as we know it. This talk will examine how AI may change the patent landscape in the years to come. Furthermore, ways in which companies can best protect their AI related inventions will be examined from both a US and...
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
