MEMS Executive Congress US 2015 Examines Commercial Forces Driving MEMS & Sensors to $20B by 2020

MEMS/Sensors Suppliers and OEM End-Users Dive Into IoT, Wearables, Automotive, VR, Emerging Tech

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwired - Aug 18, 2015) - MEMS Industry Group (MIG)'s next MEMS Executive Congress® US 2015 -- the annual business conference and networking event for the MEMS and sensors industry, November 4-6, 2015 in Napa, CA -- will explore the market drivers behind the double-digit growth propelling MEMS and sensors to more than $20+ billion by 2020.1

"From the smart home and the highway to the factory floor and the hospital, tens of billions of MEMS and sensors add greater intelligence to the ways we live our lives and do our work," said Karen Lightman, executive director, MEMS Industry Group. "As the year's 'touchpoint' event for the sellers and buyers of MEMS/sensors technology, MEMS Executive Congress US attracts forward-thinking executives who want to interact with innovative speakers, business partners, and even competitors, all involved in using MEMS/sensors to transform the human experience."

Ms. Lightman pointed out that the dramatic growth in the MEMS market alone should reach nearly 25 billion units annually by 2019, according to the market research firm IHS2. "And if we add a selection of sensors -- magnetic sensors, light sensors and emerging sensors for consumer applications, such as fingerprint sensors -- we are looking at an additional 5+ billion units by that time. That's a massive number of MEMS/sensors adding product-differentiating value to commercial applications just four years from today."
