According to MEMS marketing, the MEMS pressure sensor operating revenue in medical electronics this year is expected to grow by 7%, benefiting from the use of disposable instruments and medical monitoring。
The pressure sensor operating revenue in the medical electronic application sector will reach $137.6 million this year, up from $129.2 million in 2011. It is expected to maintain steady growth in the coming years and is expected to reach us $186.7 million by 2016.
Although medical MEMS pressure sensor in the field of electronic business income or consumption field is relatively small compared with cars, but medical electronic belong to the category of the so-called high value, much higher average selling prices higher than other MEMS field. In addition to medical electronics, the high value of MEMS pressure sensor applications include industrial and military/aerospace, high total value to the other half in the field of MEMS, the high value of MEMS revenue this year to an estimated $283.6 million.
This year pressure sensors will become the main MEMS device type, with revenue expected to reach $1.5 billion. For medical applications, MEMS pressure sensor technology requires the production of specialized techniques for precise low-pressure measurement devices for intrusive or non-invasive applications. Pressure sensors for invasive applications, such as monitoring blood pressure, are low-cost consumables. In contrast, non-invasive pressure sensors used to monitor sleep disorders can be reused and cost much more.
