Research and Markets: MEMS for Cell Phones and Tablets Report 2013 - Market Demand for New Sensors will Lead to a $6.4B Market by 2018

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/7hbmk8/mems_for_cell) has announced the addition of the "MEMS for Cell Phones and Tablets 2013" report to their offering.

From a $2.2B business in 2012, market demand for new sensors will lead to a $6.4B market by 2018!

MEMS devices are proliferating in mobile devices. We count 25+ sensors and actuators in production or in development for mobile applications, including MEMS accelerometers, MEMS gyroscopes, magnetometers, 6-axis e-compasses, 6-axis IMU combos, 9-axis combo solutions, silicon microphones, microspeakers, pressure sensors, humidity/temperature sensors, BAW filters and duplexers, MEMS switches and variable capacitors, silicon MEMS oscillators/resonators, micromirrors for picoprojectors, microdisplays, MEMS autofocus, IR sensors and micro bolometers, biochemical detectors & gas sensors, MEMS touchscreen, MEMS joystick, radiation detectors, MEMS fuel cells, energy harvesting, UV sensors, ultrasonic sensors and more!

Mobile phones and tablets are becoming more sophisticated, and MEMS content is everincreasing. Indeed, MEMS sensors and actuators bring a strong value proposition at different levels:

- Navigation & environmental sensing

- Improved sound quality

- Better communication performance

- Improved visual experience + new tactile interface

- Increased battery life

- Infrared sensing

The past 12 months have seen big changes. While in the past, cell phone MEMS were limited to three categories (inertial, microphones and filters), we've seen strong adoption of new device types targeting environmental sensing. Also, pressure sensors are being heavily adopted in flagship phones and tablets, and humidity sensors are being adopted in the Samsung Galaxy S4. All of these new MEMS killer applications are detailed in this report.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
