MEMS: Biosensors and Nanosensors

MEMS: Biosensors and Nanosensors

The global market for microsensors reached nearly $9.9 billion in 2014 and totaled almost $10.9 billion in 2015. The market should reach more than $18.9 billion in 2020, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.7% between 2015 and 2020.

This report provides:

An overview of the global market for microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), which consist of sensing devices that integrate mechanical elements, sensors, actuators, and electronics on a common silicon substrate, and typically have dimensions in the 1-micron to 100-micron range; as well as biosensors and nanosensors

Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2014, estimates for 2015, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2020

Discussion covering how microsensors have proven to be a key enabling technology of developments in sectors such as transportation, telecommunications, and healthcare, but the range of microsensors applications covers nearly every sector

Identification of technologies that are still at the discovery and developmental stages, with an explanation as to why their eventual commercialization will require the commitment of substantial resources, with long payback periods and substantial financial risk

Examination of industry structure, market dynamics, and market shares

Profiles of major players


SCOPE OF REPORT

The report addresses the global market for microsensors, including the following:
MEMS: Sensing devices that integrate mechanical elements, sensors, actuators, and electronics on a common silicon substrate, and typically have dimensions in the 1-micron to 100-micron range (1 micron = 1 millionth of a meter).
Biochips: Silicon chip-based detection devices that integrate a living organism or product derived from living systems (e.g., an enzyme or an antibody) and a transducer to provide an indication, signal, or other form of recognition of the presence of a specific substance in the environment. Biological detection devices that do not generate an analytical signal, such as pregnancy tests or conventional glucose test strips, do not meet this report’s definition of sensors.
Nanosensors: Sensors that are nanoscale or incorporate nanoengineered structures such as nanotubes.

The study format includes the following major elements:
Executive summary.
Definitions.
Milestones in the development of microsensors.
Current and developmental microsensor technologies and applications.
Microsensor technologies and applications with the greatest commercial potential through 2020.
Global microsensor market trends, 2014–2020.
Microsensor market shares and industry structure.
