Micro-Electro-Mechanical System Market to surpass $25 Bn by 2032

  • Published Date: March 17, 2023

Micro-Electro-Mechanical System Market valuation is estimated to exceed USD 25 billion by 2032,  according to a recent research report announced by Global Market Insights Inc.

The report identifies emerging electrification and advancement in the automotive industry as the key driver of the MEMS market. The demand for several electrical components, such as MEMS, photonics, optical devices, and others, is gaining positive attention due to intensifying popularity of electric vehicles. This has encouraged automotive companies to focus on developing lightweight and efficient parts for new electric vehicles. In October 2022, STMicroelectronics, a semiconductor company, introduced a new vibration sensor for road noise-cancellation (RNC) via active noise-control techniques for electric and other cars.

Mounting demand for wearable devices to increase the use of actuators

With respect to type, the micro-electro-mechanical system market from the actuators segment is slated to progress at over 5% CAGR between 2023 and 2032 on account of the surging need for smaller, more precise, and efficient devices that translate electrical impulses into mechanical motions. Additionally, the segment growth is attributed to the burgeoning demand for smart gadgets, wearable technology, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

Wide usage in 3D imaging systems to push the demand for optical devices

The report further classifies actuators into RF actuators and optical devices. The optical devices segment accounted for over USD 2 billion in revenue in 2022 due to its extensive use in numerous applications, such as image stabilization, focusing optical zoom, and others. A research study on MEMS-based silicon photonics LiDAR utilized MEMS-actuated optical switches to control the grating antenna digitally in this large-scale imaging LiDAR. It concluded that the angular resolution of the current system can be improved by optimizing optical design and fabrication technology.
