MEMS Tug-of-War: COVID-19 vs Emerging Trends


From the smartphones and cars we daily use, to the airplanes we occasionally take, MEMS’ reach is ever-expanding. Wearables are becoming increasingly sensitive, packing more inertial sensors and microphones. The popularity of voice personal assistants (VPA) like Siri, Alexa, etc have pushed audio technologies into new systems that are adopting VPA as a new human-machine interface and MEMS microphones are playing a vital role in this business. And the list keeps getting longer.
Covid-19 is continuously making headlines on its negative effects on markets and the economy, and of course the MEMS market is no different. However, there are some MEMS devices that have gained a lot of attention and experienced a spike in demand, because they help in the combat against the pandemic.

In this presentation, we will address these key elements. Furthermore, we will show the latest market data and MEMS ecosystem, and we will explore emerging market and technology trends, focusing on how the sensor manufacturers can squeeze out more value, overcoming current challenges.

MEMS & Sensors Market: The Effects of the 2020 Pandemic

Sensors are found today in a wide range of end applications, spreading from Consumer Electronics & Mobile to Industrial and Automotive, resulting in a sensor market in a good health overall. Even if sensor adoption in Consumer and Mobile applications can quickly skyrocket and then fade, the market is still growing and often reshaping and renewing itself. While Smartphones still represent a huge market, commoditization has left it saturated in value terms and growth is still relevant with the proliferation of multiple image sensors and at the same time it has recently moved to other accessories like smart watches or wireless earbuds from leading suppliers like Apple. Other mainstays like Automotive and Industry on the other hand are subject to longer term trends like Electrification and Robotization of the Car, as well as Smart Manufacturing, Big Data and Condition Monitoring. The presentation looks at the impacts of the major market changes on MEMS and other silicon sensors, focusing on the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the sensor shipments and end products forecasts. Which are the sensor families most affected by the lockdowns implemented in several countries worldwide? Are the major effects caused by disruptions in the supply chains or by unexpected changes in the end product demand? Insights and examples of resilience and required market changes will be provided, with predictions of the opportunities for the years ahead.
