Ruminations on the electronics industry from David Manners, Senior Components Editor on Electronics Weekly.
TI, HP, MEMS Fallers; ST and Bosch Rise
Bosch and ST shared the No.1 slot for MEMS last year with $793 million revenues apiece, says IHS, the figures exclude foundry business.
Bosch is top in auto with a 27% market share which makes up 82% of Bosch’s MEMS revenue.
ST is top in consumer and mobile.
TI, former No.1, fell to No.3 because of flat DLP revenue which makes up most of its MEMS revenue.
HP, former No.2, fell to No.4 as inkjet printer head revenue declined.
The top 20 players have 77% of the MEMS market.
