DUBLIN, June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6mk3hr/biomems_2013) has announced the addition of the "BioMEMS 2013: Microsystem Device Market for Healthcare Applications" report to their offering.
The BioMEMS market is expected to grow rapidly, from $1.9B in 2012 to $6.6B in 2018! Microsystems integration is fast becoming a key added-value for system manufacturers.
Microsystem devices have become increasingly visible in the Healthcare market by serving as solutions adapted to the requirements of various applications. The usefulness of these devices is two-fold: for one, they improve medical device performance for the patient; and secondly, they offer competitive advantages to system manufacturers. For example, the introduction of accelerometers in pacemakers has revolutionized the treatment of cardiac diseases.
The Microsystem technologies market for Healthcare applications looks promising, and should reach $6.6B by 2018. This research has followed this market's innovations and key players for the last several years, and based on an accurate analysis of the market's last three years, this new report consolidates market data for 2010-2012 and provides forecasts for 2012-2018.
The devices considered in the BioMEMS 2013 report are:
- Pressure sensors
- Silicon microphones
- Optical MEMS and Image sensors
- Microfluidic chips
- Microdispensers for drug delivery
- Flow meters
- Infrared temperature sensors
- Emerging MEMS (RFID, strain sensors, energy harvesting)
The regulation particulars for medical device development, included organisms and process overview, are described for five different regions: Europe, North America, Japan, China and India. This section is particularly important for Microsystem device and systems manufacturers.
A COMPLETE DESCRIPTION OF DIFFERENT HEALTHCARE MARKETS AND APPLICATIONS
Microsystem devices have applications in four key healthcare markets: pharmaceutical, in-vitro diagnostics, medical devices and medical home care. Each of these markets has its own unique dynamics, players and global drivers. Motivation for the acceptance of BioMEMS technologies is highly dependent on each individual market. Whereas the acceptance of microsystems is linked to sensibility and automation constraints in the pharmaceutical market, in the in-vitro diagnostic market it's all about portability and cost reduction; while the medical devices market is focused on addition of functionalities. Concerning the home care market, the motivations are to increase system safety and connectivity. The report reviews all four of these markets in a detailed manner.
Key Topics Covered:
