In 2015, the MEMS market did not grow as much as we initially expected. In the past, the Smart Phone industry was a strong driver of the MEMS industry with ever increasing volume. Today, MEMS are becoming commodity products with very low price. The webcast will review the latest market data and forecasts for the future. The MEMS “commoditization” paradox will be discussed as well as latest technical trends (sensors combos, packaging).
