Industrial automation and demand for miniaturized consumer devices across regions, such as wearables and IoT-connected devices, are among the significant factors driving the MEMS pressure sensors market.

Key Highlights

  • MEMS sensors are gaining popularity across sectors, due to their advantages, such as accuracy and reliability, in addition to the scope for making smaller electronic devices, which have gained significant traction in the past few years. Industrial automation and demand for miniaturized consumer devices across regions, such as wearables and IoT-connected devices, are among the crucial factors driving the MEMS pressure sensors market.
  • Also, The automotive industry, which is presently undergoing a technology transition with a significant focus on increasing safety, comfort, and entertainment, provides ample opportunities for MEMS pressure sensors. Emerging sensor-rich applications, such as autonomous vehicles, drones, and AR/VR equipment, further accelerate the need for MEMS pressure sensors.
  • In addition, MEMS technologies have enabled miniaturized, cost-effective, and reliable sensors, some of which can withstand high temperatures and harsh environments, expanding the scope of semiconductor devices. Such diversity in MEMS devices and the different technologies involved in their manufacture have led to a complex but sustainable supply chain, from design to testing.
  • The interfaces are a source of some of the most severe issues in the design of sensor-based systems. The multiple obstacles connected with sensor interfaces are enough to make design and manufacture complicated. While invaluable for decoupling parts and allowing reuse across different implementations, they are enough to make design and manufacturing difficult. Indeed, more than a third of respondents in a recent Fierce Electronics study on sensor design said that incorporating sensors into a plan is their most demanding issue. This is expected to challenge the market's growth.
  • Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic hurt the MEMS pressure sensors market in 2020 and 2021, which resulted in a slight drop in the MEMS pressure sensors. However, the market studied is likely to grow after the COVID-19 pandemic; the ease of restrictions attracted consumers to make spending decisions on IoT-enabled devices, which mostly come with MEMS pressure sensors.

MEMS Pressure Sensors Market Trends

Emergence of Automation and Industry 4.0​ to Drive the Market

  • MEMS's key features to support the smart industry are accuracy, reliability, and longevity. For Industry 4.0, MEMS sensors can be applied in early-failure-detection and predictive-maintenance systems where vibration, temperature, pressure, sound, and acoustics analyses are needed, thus, driving its usage in automation and Industry 4.0 applications.
  • Massive changes in the manufacturing industry brought by Industry 4.0 and the adoption of IoT demand that businesses adopt flexible and creative strategies to advance production with technologies that complement and augment human labor with automation and lower industrial accidents brought on by process failure. There has been an increase in the number of data points generated in the manufacturing sector as a result of the widespread adoption of connected devices and sensors and the facilitation of M2M communication.
  • In addition, the increased adoption of automation across a variety of industries has significantly increased interest in industrial robotics. The International Federation of Robotics (IFR) estimates that industrial robot shipments worldwide reached about 384,000 in 2020, only slightly up from 2019. Industrial robot shipments are anticipated to rise sharply in the years to come, possibly even exceeding the peak year of 2018, when about 422,000 industrial robots were shipped globally. Global shipments of industrial robots are predicted to reach 518,000 units in 2024.
  • Industrial robots can be used in a growing number of industries for a variety of tasks. The electrical and electronic industries installed the most industrial robots in 2020, despite the highly automated auto industry continuing to be one of the largest markets for electro-mechanical machines. Such a rise in industrial robots would also boost the demand for MEMS pressure sensors globally.
  • Additionally, According to Cisco, by 2022, machine-to-machine (M2M) connections that support IoT applications are expected to account for over half of the world's 28.5 billion connected devices. Manufacturers worldwide also understand that the next generation of robotics and automation technologies is a revolutionary opportunity to upgrade manufacturing in terms of productivity, quality, safety, and cost metrics. Also, increased year-on-year robotic automation expenditure mainly expands the scope of the studied market.

Asia Pacific to Hold Major Market Share

  • Asia-Pacific is a well-known manufacturing hub and rapidly growing. There is a need for more safety regulations in the automotive industry. Due to the widespread use of MEMS pressure sensors in smartphones, smart devices, and home electronics, the consumer electronics segment is predicted to dominate the regional MEMS pressure sensor market.
  • Additionally, Asia pacific automotive industry is among the largest worldwide, growing from a small government-controlled sector to one controlled by large multinational enterprises over the past few decades. South Korea is home to major players like Kia, Hyundai, and Renault, and it is expected to witness steady growth in the demand for automobiles. Such growth in automobiles will increase demand for MEMS pressure sensors in the region.
  • MEMS pressure sensors have a variety of applications in the automotive industry, which is currently undergoing a technological transformation with the primary goal of enhancing safety, comfort, and entertainment. These sensors, like MEMS, are in high demand in the automotive industry due to their small size, which is a key driver of their widespread adoption.
  • Since the automotive sector accounts for a sizable portion of the pressure sensor market, the region presents an excellent opportunity over the coming years. The adoption of MEMS pressure sensors is also anticipated to be influenced by the expanding idea of connected cars and Chinese regulations regarding automotive safety.
  • In the upcoming years, expanding technological development, IoT adoption on a large scale, pro-product government regulations, and more will all contribute to the growth of the pressure sensors market. However, the market for pressure sensors may face additional challenges due to high regulatory barriers.
