MEMS sound great, but can it last?

The MEMS (microelectromechanical system) market is starting to motor. It grew at just over 10% last year and is likely to grow even faster this year. This is good news for the ‘newest’ semiconductor device market. But can it continue to grow at this rate? Market analyst Yole Développement has already warned of price pressures pegging back revenue growth over the next few years. According to Yole, price pres ...
