Identify the Emerging Opportunities within the MEMS and Nanotechnology Sector
Product intelligence is on the upswing as more products than ever before are relying on both the use of sensors (and not just one or two, but sometimes dozens) and interaction with the consumer, resulting in a whole new era of "smart products". No market will go untouched, based on the myriad of examples in this report - particularly those for consumers. From a market perspective, wireless sensing continues to evolve, water quality monitoring is making gains, and there was a sharp uptake in announcements regarding next-generation blood glucose monitoring/insulin delivery solutions for those with Diabetes. As always, an incredibly interesting array of MEMS and Nanotechnology-based products made news, from both a development and commercialization standpoint. Perhaps most notable was the fact that five acquisitions were announced, as were nearly a dozen joint ventures/partnerships/collaborations.
The Bourne Report is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the commercialization efforts and market impact of MEMS devices, Nanotechnology-based solutions and other next-generation technologies. It is unmatched in its ability to distill the information decision-makers need most into timely, useful, credible analysis.
Business leaders worldwide rely on the unbiased insight of The Bourne Report to support critical business, product and technology decisions - from the creation of corporate strategy and identification of market opportunities, to product management and business development efforts.
Taking both supply-side and demand-side factors into consideration, The Bourne Report:
-- Identifies emerging opportunities
-- Monitors market/application trends
-- Provides relevant statistics/market data
-- Follows technology and product developments
-- Tracks the changing competitive landscape
-- Assesses the needs and demands of the OEM and the end-use customer
DEMO is a unique conference unlike any other that gives 70 companies three minutes each to introduce their product to an audience of press and venture capitalists; a few of these potentially disruptive products offer interesting opportunities for MEMS sensors. The report also takes a look at an issue that is presenting perhaps the biggest challenge to the use of MEMS sensors in cell phones - device drivers - and offers two possible solutions. In addition, as evidenced from the Optical Fiber Conference (OFC 2006), the telecom sector remains tight for suppliers of MEMS-based components for optical networking - but there's finally light at the end of the tunnel. From a market perspective, consumer products continue to get smarter and applications for sensors in both wireless sensing and robotics continues to expand. Other news of note includes an incredibly interesting array of new MEMS and Nanotechnology-based products, and more.
