Nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) involves integration of mechanical elements, sensors, actuators, and electronics over a common silicon substrate on a nanoscale. It is an advanced miniaturized form of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). NEMS is preferred over MEMS technology due to its advantages such as low power consumption, considerably smaller size, low cost owing to IC integration, and high-frequency resonance. Growth in incipient global NEMS market is expected to escalate rapidly owing to the rigorous R&D activities taking place in this sector. This nascent technology is applied in accelerometer in air bags, nano nozzles in printers, and inside cellphones for CDMA and GSM technologies.
Currently, this market is in its nascent phase, and the key players are investing heavily on R&D facilities. The market growth is primarily driven by its high-frequency resonance, impending need of device miniaturization, integration of sensors in devices used daily such as mobiles, and growth in the automobile & chemical industry. However, high prices of nano-materials and nano-components pose major threats to its growth. Although, the effect of this restraining factor will be abated in future by the constant technological developments and mass production. Novel developments in automobile & chemical industry have opened new opportunities for growth of the NEMS market.
The world NEMS market is segmented on the basis of type of fabrication technology, product type, material, application, and geography.
