Microelectromechanical (MEMS) sensors are used extensively in automotive applications but like everything else automotive, 2009 was not a good year. Richard Dixon of iSuppli forecasts that global shipments of automotive MEMS sensors will reach 591.2 million units in 2010, up 13.5% from 502.0 million in 2009. The second half will be up from the first and the increasing trend will continue through 2013. In fact, some MEMS products such as pressure sensors are experiencing shortages. The report “Automotive MEMS H1 2010 Market Tracker” provides more details.
