NEW YORK, Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:



Microsystem devices have become increasingly visible in the healthcare market by serving as solutions adapted to the requirements of various applications. The usefulness of these devices is two-fold: for one, they improve medical device performance for the patient; and secondly, they offer competitive advantages to system manufacturers. For example, the introduction of accelerometers in pacemakers has revolutionized the treatment of cardiac diseases.

The microsystem technologies market for Healthcare applications looks promising, and should reach $6.6B by 2018. Yole Développement has followed this market's innovations and key players for the last several years, and based on an accurate analysis of the market's last three years, this new report consolidates market data for 2010-2012 and provides forecasts for 2012-2018.

The devices considered in the BioMEMS 2013 report are:

• Pressure sensors• Silicon microphones• Accelerometers• Gyroscopes• Optical MEMS and Image sensors• Microfluidic chips• Microdispensers for drug delivery• Flow meters• Infrared temperature sensors• Emerging MEMS (RFID, strain sensors, energy harvesting)

For each of the above, the report provides a market description, the main device and system manufacturers, current market data, and forecasts. Additionally, main technological trends are reviewed.

We also take a look at the microsystem devices dedicated to cell phone applications. Though mobile care is still in its infancy, we believe this market will grow significantly in the coming years.

Furthermore, specific case studies (including technology and player-specific overviews, innovative developments, supply chain data and patent information) have been included to better address two of the industry's hottest topics: microfluidic chips and retinal implants. Indeed, these two micro devices possess the largest growth opportunity for the coming years.

REGULATION OVERVIEW The regulation particulars for medical device development, included organisms and process overview, are described for five different regions: Europe, North America, Japan, China and India. This section is particularly important for microsystem device and systems manufacturers.A COMPLETE DESCRIPTION OF DIFFERENT HEALTHCARE MARKETS AND APPLICATIONS Microsystem devices have applications in four key healthcare markets: pharmaceutical, in-vitro diagnostics, medical devices and medical home care. Each of these markets has its own unique dynamics, players and global drivers. Motivation for the acceptance of BioMEMS technologies is highly dependent on each individual market. Whereas the acceptance of microsystems is linked to sensibility and automation constraints in the pharmaceutical market, in the in-vitro diagnostic market it's all about portability and cost reduction; while the medical devices market is focused on addition of functionalities. Concerning the home care market, the motivations are to increase system safety and connectivity. The report reviews all four of these markets in a detailed manner.

Yole Développement's experts have identified a number of applications for each device type. These applications can be placed into five groups: patient monitoring, patient care, medical imaging, in-vitro diagnostic testing and drug delivery. For each of these groups, the report provides an overview of devices and key market drivers, along with market data.

The BioMEMS 2013 report also pays particular attention to Chinese microsystems players, as a number of new players have recently entered the market.

OBJECTIVES OF THE REPORT The report objectives are as follows:

• Provide a robust analysis of the micro devices used to develop innovative solutions for healthcare applications.• Compare Yole Développement's previous forecast with current market data and draw conclusions.• Deliver the following information for each device category: market insights, main device manufacturers and system integrators, and main trends.• Describe the market drivers per application group.


• Consolidation of 2010-2012 market data and 2012-2018 markets forecasts in both volume and value• Identification of all microsystem device applications in the four main healthcare markets: pharmaceutical, in-vitro diagnostics, medical devices and medical home care• Drivers per application are described at both device and system level• Analysis of medical systems growth and the drivers for adoption of MEMS devices for each application• Key technology trends are reviewed per application• Regulation particulars for medical device development in different regions: North America, Europe, Japan, China and India• Analysis of the maturation level for each application (well-established market versus large amount of new players)
