DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/tc9slx/mems_in_medical) has announced the addition of the "2013 Report on the International MEMS In Medical Applications Market - Trends And Forecast to 2019" report to their offering.
MEMS comprises of miniaturized structures such as sensors, actuators and microelectronics. The prime elements are micro sensors and micro actuators. These are also called as transducers which help in the conversion of one form of energy into another. Technological advances have led to the development of a synergistic relation between unrelated fields such as biology and microelectronics. MEMS finds its application in medical sector especially diagnosis and biotechnology.
MEMS devices in medical applications are amongst these technological advancements. MEMS-embedded medical equipment are efficient to measure, diagnose and treat various medical conditions such as blood pressure, respiratory rate, body temperature disorders and others. MEMS-based medical devices are miniaturized and help to increase efficiency of various medical devices. In addition, the rise in demand for lab automation for increased efficiency would also trigger the growth of this market. Increased funding for this market is also expected to boost the growth of MEMS embedded devices.
Geographically, the North American region constituted the largest market for MEMS-based medical devices market in year 2012; however, Asia-Pacific is predicted to foresee the highest growth rate of over 20% from 2013 to 2019. This growth has been attributed to increase in diabetic population and rising disposable incomes coupled with change in lifestyle.
