Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) devices integrate miniature mechanical and electronic components on a silicon chip. The MEMS pressure sensor incorporates a pressure sensing element and a digital conditioning processor, digitally compensating the drift, sensitivity, and linearity parameters. This pressure sensor generates a calibrated and compensated standard voltage signal based on the voltage power supply. It is appropriate for measuring the pressure of pure non-corrosive gases. MEMS series pressure sensors are intended for pressure measurement of clean, non-corrosive gases and are based on MEMS technology and SOP, DIP, and COB packages, among other packaging types.

A piezoresistive pressure sensing die that has been through the MEMS processing process is the main component of the MEMS pressure sensor. The springy diaphragm and four resistors built into the diaphragm make up the pressure-detecting die. Four piezo resistors create a Wheatstone bridge construction. The Wheatstone bridge will produce a linear proportional voltage signal when the springy diaphragm is under pressure. Since there is no output without pressure changes, less power is used. The MEMS pressure sensor is extensively used in biomedicine, automotive electronics, and other fields thanks to its small size, low cost, and other advantages.

Segmental Analysis

The global MEMS pressure sensors market is segmented by type, distribution channel, and application.

Based on the type, the global market is divided into silicon piezoresistive and silicon capacitive.

The silicon piezoresistive segment is responsible for the most significant market share and is anticipated to exhibit a CAGR of 5.5% over the forecast period. Silicon piezoresistive pressure sensor is more suitable for the harsh environment due to its wide bandgap, corrosion tolerance, excellent chemical inertness, high Young's modulus, and high carrier mobility. The concept of an effective wide signal must be abandoned to improve overload protection. It is necessary to use a pressure sensor designed for a higher-pressure range. Although a mechanical stop can be used in capacitive pressure sensors to prevent membrane deformation under pressure and ensure very high overload protection, it is nearly impossible with the comparatively tiny silicon membranes of piezoresistive pressure cells with the smallest deflections. Piezoresistive transducers implanted in silicon wafers with bulk micromachined diaphragms have emerged as a dominating approach for manufacturing automobile pressure sensors.

The silicon capacitive pressure sensor is based on changes in capacitive electrode distance into pressure changes in capacitance created by MEMS sensor technology. The capacitance sensor has low power, high impedance, small electrostatic attraction, small movable mass, little heat effects, and non-contact measurement. Silicon capacitive sensors incorporate performance indications such as non-linearity, overload, static pressure, and dependability and outperform silicon piezoresistive sensors, ceramic sensors, and metal diaphragm condenser transducers. Its silicon resonant sensor with a significant, especially in pursuit of nonlinear index users, is frequently better than silicon capacitive sensors for the nonlinear rate of 0.05% FS is greater than 60% of finished. Moreover, MEMS technology is used to create the capacitive pressure sensor, which has a chip size of 3mm.

Based on application, the global market is segmented into medical, electronics, automotive, industrial, aerospace and defense, home appliances, consumer electronics, and others.

The automotive segment owns the highest market share and is estimated to exhibit a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. The automotive industry is changing. Vehicles are getting electrified, connected, and automated. As this trend is propelling, it impacts how semiconductors, including MEMS sensors, are designed and qualified for automotive applications. As automotive semiconductor designers carefully consider product definition, validation, and long-term reliability, MEMS sensor suppliers respond to novel opportunities created by electric and automated vehicles by developing inertial measurement units (IMUs) for automated driving and battery pressure monitoring sensors for Li-ion EV batteries. In addition, MEMS pressure sensors are the most used sensors in automobiles. At least 18 automotive applications have promoted the growth of pressure sensors, including tire pressure, brake sensors in electronic stability control systems, side airbags, and engine control related to increasingly stringent emission standards, atmospheric pressure, and exhaust gas recirculation pressure.

MEMS pressure sensors have been used extensively in multiple applications across healthcare for the past couple of years. For instance, ventilators provide breathing assistance to patients who have contracted an illness that prohibits normal breathing or sustained serious injury. MEMS pressure sensors have been used in medical applications historically and have been used in non-invasive medical equipment, including respiratory gear and blood pressure cuffs, since the 1980s. Further, MEMS pressure sensors have been utilized for invasive applications, including catheter tip sensors or implants reporting blood pressure (systolic and diastolic), cardiac output, and heart rate. The MEMS pressure sensors hold significant importance in respiratory monitoring and are used in ventilators to monitor patients' breathing.
