Covid-19 Analysis


As a result of COVID-19, the MEMS sensor industry has faced significant challenges. Sensor demand and consumption are influenced by pandemics' power to promote innovative behaviors and social formations. Although the global automotive sector has been in a recession for the past two years, the trend has also been in China. The number of sensors and sensor components has expanded throughout the industry. In recent years, MEMS pressure sensors have experienced extensive application in the smart automobile market. For this reason, Asystom has launched a series of multi-sensor IIoT devices with improved autonomy. The multi-sensor capability has solved the predictive maintenance requirements of a wide range of industrial equipment by incorporating new onboard, networked, energy-saving electronics that perform in-situ analysis. Apart from greater performance, these new items are eco-friendly and 100% upgradeable. In recent months, lockdown processes have significantly reduced sensor device utilization in the commercial and industrial sectors. Slower demand growth has almost occurred due to decreased economic activity caused by COVID-19. Reduced sensor creation was caused by falling industrial production. Consumers and businesses are adopting new technology and discovering its benefits as the world confronts the same threat. Sensor technologies for the Internet of Things have been crucial. Sensors helped people survive the pandemic's harshest phase. This pandemic has impacted the public view of IoT.


MEMS Sensors Market Dynamics


Market Driver: 



  • Increase in adoption of smart connected devices.


MEMS sensors are utilized in various applications, including automotive, consumer, industrial, military, biotechnology, space exploration, and commercial applications such as inkjet printers, accelerometers in current cars, consumer electronics, and personal computers. Adaptive optics, optical cross-connects, airbag accelerometers, mirror arrays for TVs and displays, steerable micromirrors, RF MEMS devices, non-reusable medical devices, and so on are some of the prime aspects of MEMS devices.


The initial versions were utilized as pressure sensors and accelerometers in automobiles. The primary technology driver for MEMS has shifted from automotive applications to consumer electronics, which is dominated by smartphones. MEMS sensors have also formed the centre of new device classes, such as fitness trackers, smart watches, virtual reality glasses, and smart sensor nodes for the Internet of Things (IoT). MEMS sensors play a significant role in making mobility more efficient, comfortable, and safe while also making driving more interesting and enjoyable. They are also necessary in a connected world. These unseen heroes exhibit their superpower by sensing even the smallest changes in their surroundings. Their keen sensors constantly provide exact data to the system. This information allows the connected electric control units to trigger necessary actions in real-time.


They are used in heat exchangers, inkjet printer heads, micro-mirror arrays, projectors, high-pressure sensors, infrared detectors, microphones, optical switching technologies, displays, energy harvesting applications, and lab-on-a-chip devices as transducers (i.e., they change one form of energy into another).


Market Opportunity: 



  • Rising Demand for connected devices implement IoT


The internet of things (IoT) is a system that connects objects and consumers via the internet. MEMS technology, which can function at ultra-low power and practically produce accurate results, can significantly simplify things. MEMS can improve traditional IoT systems because IoT devices are ideally adapted to use environmental energy resources such as hydropower, light, wind, thermal, and solar. As a result, MEMS sensors in these applications maintain well-workability and proficient results. Thermal sensors are utilized in automotive, wearable devices, human intruder alert systems, temperature sensors, and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Micro-switches, resonators, variable capacitors, and programmable phase shifters were all completed using MEMS technology. The ability to integrate RF signal functions gave strength to waveguides, and the application of diverse mechanical qualities provided the groundwork for RFMEMS. The accelerometer is one of the most often used sensors in IoT devices, and its operating power is quite low due to the ULP usage. As a result, these devices are widely employed in smartphones and wearable devices for various applications. Small-size batteries are utilized in gadgets that can run for an extended time. ULP (Ultra Low Power) internal sensors can be used for long-term operation.
