Is the MEMS foundry business growing?

As a boutique MEMS Foundry we are always interested to hear what the experts have to say about our industry. Is the MEMS Foundry business growing? What are the latest trends and who are the key players in the MEMS manufacturing world. According to this article published by Control Engineering, the MEMS industry is experiencing significant growth. Fueled by consumer applications, the MEMS market is expected to see growth in the high teens.   Other factors include an uptick in demand from the automotive industry and a renewed interest in micromirrors for optical datacom. New MEMS Devices, including gas and chemical sensors are also expected to play an important role. Yole Développement (Yole) believes that this increased demand will push MEMS Foundries to consider manufacturing devices on 300mm substrates. Here is a link to the in article in Control Engineering.
