Sensors and MEMS Update

Sensors define the ability of a device to interact with the outside world. Thanks to various sensors and sensor combinations, consumer and non-consumer devices can now automatically react to some specific conditions under which the device operates. Sensors can authenticate the user identity; enable the device to track its location, its orientation, and how fast it is moving; how healthy the user is; and under what condition the device is being used. All data tracked from various sensors can be processed in a sensor hub to determine the context in which the device is used. Not only is this information valuable for improving the user experience and for optimizing the performance of the device but it could be of paramount importance in tracking device usage patterns, which could enable the device to learn and predict future patterns of user behavior or device environment.
 
This extensive market data report provides forecasts for 25+ MEMS and non-MEMS sensor technologies across various functions including motion, touch, light, and sound sensors targeting a variety of application types and use cases, such as human to machine interaction, environmental, biometric, and healthcare applications. Market opportunities for each of these technologies are assessed across more than six verticals and 40 end-device types. 
 
Particular attention is dedicated to combo sensors, in which more than one function is integrated into a single chip. Examples include 6-Axis, 9 Axis, and 10-Axis motion sensors. The report provides data forecasts for volume shipments, ASPs, and market value of each sensor technology studied and across all targeted verticals.
