MEMS industry: RF is changing the game

LYON, France – May 17, 2017 | With the apparition of 4G and complexification leading to increasing demand for filters, RF is restructuring the MEMS industry. A new MEMS player has entered the Top 3: with US$910 million in 2016, the US-based company Broadcom, acquired by Avago Technologies in May 2015, has shifted from #4 in 2015 to #2 in 2016 with its MEMS f ilter activities. Yole Développement, part of the Yole Group, today released its annual MEMS manufacturer ranking. This analysis is based on 2016 revenues and is part of Yole’s MEMS & Sensors annual report, Status of the MEMS Industry.

This year the ranking highlights the redirection of the MEMS industry towards RF applications: RF MEMS filters represent the largest MEMS growth with a 35% CAGR in US$ between 2017 and 2022. “Beyond the development of these RF MEMS devices, the RF front-end demonstrated comfortable growth, at 14% CAGR during the same period ,” comments Claire Troadec, Activity Leader, RF Devices & Technologies from Yole. Today, filters are the biggest business in the RF front-end industry…
