Numbers may not gauge it, but MEMS industry is moving at midyear

Abstract:
The past year has certainly been fairly challenging for those in the MEMS industry. Year-over-year revenues increased from $3.8 billion in 2001 to $3.9 billion in 2002 – even though unit shipments increased 47.6 percent.
However, that disparity in growth rates shouldn’t be cause for concern. Economies of scale have come into play as more companies are moving from ramp-up to volume production. With a large boost in unit shipments, prices drop accordingly. The best example is the increased movement of gyros into the automotive market and the corresponding reduction in price.
