DUBLIN, Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "MEMS: Status of the MEMS Industry 2014" report to their offering.

Although consumer applications will enjoy significant volume growth (around 20% expected between 2013- 2019), strong price pressure (-7% a year) will result in modest 13% revenue growth over the same time period. And although the MEMS sector achieved 10.4% overall growth in 2013, closing in on a US$12B business, established players are struggling to continue their usual consumer applications growth. If we look at the top MEMS players, we see that STMicroelectronics while still producing at high volume, is struggling to get good margins - even though it's shown impressive growth over the last several years, and reached US$1B sales in 2012 - the first MEMS company to do so. Meanwhile, Texas Instruments' DLP sales are flat, since pico projection applications are long to take off (at least for consumer applications), and the professional/commercial projection market isn't growing either. Also, Hewlett-Packard, the major inkjet heads player, has seen sales decline, as have most other inkjet heads companies.

Another characterization of the current MEMS industry is the fact that there is almost no new, big companies entering the business. Instead, newcomers have opted for a fabless model, thus minimizing their infrastructure investments.
