According to an IHS iSuppli MEMS Market Brief, military- and aerospace-related MEMS takings will reach $45.5 million by 2016, equivalent to a five-year compound annual growth rate of 9%.

A*STAR Institute of Microelectronics (IME), GLOBALFOUNDRIES Singapore Pte. Ltd., and Masdar Institute of Science and Technology entered into a collaboration to develop and advance micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technologies for automotive, aerospace, consumer, health care, industrial, and mobility applications. The joint research initiative, which builds on the Abu Dhabi-Singapore Joint Forum (ADSJF), is supported by the Advanced Technology Investment Co. (ATIC), a Mubadala company focused on building leading technologies companies, and the Economic Development Board (EDB) of Singapore. The Abu Dhabi-Singapore Twin Lab will focus on the development of MEMS technologies including inertial sensors, energy harvesters, nano-opto-mechanical sensors, and ultrasonic transducers.
