5:05 PM – Combo sensors market: is there any room for newcomers? Christophe Fitamant, Sales & Marketing Director, Yole Développement
According to Yole Développement, 2012 was seen by many as a turnkey year for consumer combo sensors, with high volume adoption in platforms such as Samsung Galaxy S smartphones. 9-axis solutions are being introduced to the market and innovative solutions should follow: with integration of pressure sensing, processing units, RF capabilities… “The combo sensor market is estimated to be at $446M in 2013, growing to $1.97B in 2018. From 21% in 2013, this will represent a 66% part of the global inertial consumer market in 2018”, explains Christophe Fitamant, Sales & Marketing Director, Yole Développement.
STMicroelectronics is global leader in the inertial consumer sensor market with 42% market shares. Only InvenSense and Bosch Sensortec are able to sustain the competition today. It is key to be able to control the different technologies or to establish the right partnerships to sell a large range of combo solutions.
5:20 PM – MEMS gyroscope patent landscape: understanding the key players’ patent portfolios
Christophe Fitamant, Sales & Marketing Director, Yole Développement
About 200 players are involved in MEMS gyroscope technologies, but the top 10 represent 63% of the patents filed! Panasonic and Murata lead the way. Both were early players in the industry, with piezo/ceramic style gyroscopes. Other players such as Analog Devices, Robert Bosch, ST and InvenSense developed their technologies based on silicon substrates and the capacitive detection principle…
