MEMS market will almost double from 2012 to $22 billion in 2018

The market for micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) chips will almost double from about $12 billion in 2012 to over $22 billion by 2018, according to market analyst. MEMS for mobile is the driver for future growth, noting that smartphones have as many as 12 MEMS chips today, growing to as many as 20 in the near future. They expect to see increases in number of MEMS devices in mobile platforms, led by more integrated solutions, such as 9-axis sensors.
