FARMINGTON, Conn. , May 29, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Global Information Inc. is pleased to announce two significantnew reports on Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) MEMS For Cell Phones & Tablets Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) devices have proven extremelypopular in mobile applications; despite this interest, however,only 3 categories of MEMS devices have high volume productiontoday: Motion sensors, MEMS microphones, and BAW filters andduplexers. Many other MEMS products are still under development.Yole Development’s new MEMS market research report, MEMS For Cell Phones & Tablets, highlights that novel MEMSopportunities need to be watched as they will fuel this marketsignificantly: pressure sensors, inertial sensors, RF MEMSswitches, Oscillators, MEMS auto-focus, microdisplays,microspeakers, environmental sensors, touchscreen, joysticks.

The MEMS market tripled from 2009 to 2011, and the market for MEMSin cell phones and tablets will grow 19.8% to reach $5.4 billion in value by 2017. The ranking of the top players has also evolvedthe past 2 years: ST Microelectronics ranked third in 2009 and isnow by far the number one supplier, with $477 million cellphone and tablet revenue in 2011. ST Microelectronicsdominates the MEMS accelerometer market, had an impressive startwith MEMS gyroscopes, and only is challenged by InvenSense while itcontinues to expand into many other MEMS devices to become aone-stop supplier. This report will be available from Yole Development on June 5, 2012 , but a pre-launch discount of 10% is available for orders placedon or before June 4, 2012 .
