The global medical micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS) market, by Sensor Type (Pressure Sensors, Microfluidic Device Sensors, Accelerometers, Gyroscopes, Optical Sensors, Microphones, and Others), by Application (Diagnostic Devices, Monitoring Devices, Surgical Devices, and Therapeutic Devices), and by Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa) was valued at US$ 3,054 million in 2016 and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 18.2% over the forecast period (2017–2025). Growth of the global medical MEMS market is primarily attributed to increased research and development activity and rampant innovation in the healthcare industry, coupled with shift in focus towards portable medical devices for personalized care. In July 2017, MEMSIC Inc., announced the introduction of MDP200 Bi-directional Differential Pressure Sensor for medical and other industries. Manufacturers are focusing on innovation and new product launches to enter into untapped markets. For instance, in June 2017, Omron Electronic Components BV, upgraded its MEMS thermal sensing technology. This technology introduced the new Omron D6T-1A-02, a super sensitive infrared temperature sensor designed to provide non-contact measurement of the surface temperature of objects. The DT6-1A-02 device comprises MEMS thermophile, a signal processing microprocessor, and a sensor application specific integrated circuit (ASIC), enabling it to accurately measure surface temperature. It can measure surface temperature in the range of -40 up to +80°C with a resolution of 0.06 °C and an accuracy of +/-1.5 °C. In January, 2017, the Integrated Sensing Systems, introduced next generation Mass Sense Liquid and Gas Density Meters and Liquid flow meter (LFM). LFM overcomes the drawbacks of low flow coriolis meters, including low density resolution, vibration sensitivity, high pressure drop, and high zero flow instability.

The healthcare industry is rapidly evolving, with several healthcare systems being integrated with advanced technology to deliver excellent care. In July 2017, Abbott and Bigfoot Biomedical entered into an agreement to develop and market diabetes management systems. Through this agreement Abbott is expected to integrate its freestyle glucose sensing technology with the Bigfoot’s insulin delivery solutions in the U.S. Manufacturers are also collaborating to strengthen their product portfolio related to MEMS. For instance, in August, 2017, Abbott Laboratories and North West London Pathology signed a service contract valued at US$ 252 million to supply analytical equipment and diagnostic product and services to Chelsea and Westminster NHS foundation trust, Hillingdon hospitals NHS foundation trust, and Imperial college healthcare HHS trust. The service contract is estimated to manage 26 million tests annually, accounting for 6 percent of the total pathology market in the U.K.
