Global MEMS Market Projected to Grow by Approximately 8% in Dollar Volume by 2012 New York, NY — August 17, 2008 – New York City-based market research firm Dedalus Consulting ( recently released a new report on quartz crystal- and non-quartz crystal-based frequency control devices (FCDs) that projects overall growth in dollar volume of 5.9% annually and unit volume of 7.9% annually. FCDs are passive electronic equipment components that provide precise time and frequency adjustments.
New York, NY--In 2008, world production of industrial diamonds will exceed $2.3 billion. The majority of these will be used in abrasive and cutting tool applications. Manufacturers of cutting tools and superabrasives have long recognized the advantages of diamond over other abrasive products, such as ceramic and cemented carbides, but have not been able to justify the added expense of using diamond products over these less expensive materials. Continually, however, efficiencies in synthetic diamond production and the development of untapped mines in Canada and South America, lower the cost of diamond materials. The result has sparked an increased interest in diamond tools.
Puebla, Mexico/New York City, NY (March 8-9, 2006) -- New York City, NY (March 1, 2006) — On March 8th and 9th, Dedalus Consulting (DCI) will speak at an Entrepreneurial Forum entitled Competitiveness through Innovations: Opportunities for BioMEMS in the Health Sector.The two-day workshop taking place in Puebla, Mexico is being sponsored by FUMEC (Fundaciòn Mexico-Estados Unidos para la Ciencia/The United States-Mexico Foundation for Science). FUMEC, a bi-national, non-governmental organization, was established in 1992 through an agreement between Mexico and the United States to promote scientific and technological collaboration between the two countries.
New York, NY -- The term micromachining refers to manufacturing parts or machining materials in dimensions no greater than several millimeters in total. Although the ability to manufacture at such a small scale has existed for decades, there has been an increasingly growing trend in this area over the last several years.
A device consisting of an analysis mechanism (such as a biochip), a reservoir chamber for drug storage, and compound delivery mechanism (such as a microneedle array) used for diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Drug delivery systems can be either in vivo or in vitro such as a transdermal patch or inhalation device. For the purposes of this report, only drug delivery systems that involve a bioMEMS mechanism are considered. Thus, many oral delivery methods (i.e., pills and inhalation devices) are not considered.
New York City, NY -- In 2004, the world market for bioMEMS is expected to exceed $14.3 billion with the US market accounting for nearly 31% of the total. This includes research funding and commercial developments within the markets for implants, such as pacemakers and pulse generators for gastrointestinal conditions; sensors for neurological applications; diagnostic devices such lab-on-a-chip; and treatment equipment such as the smart pill which delivers drugs as necessary and in hyper-accurate dosages.
New York, NY -- New tower construction remains strong in the China market which represented over 33% of total world demand in 2003. In total, new tower construction for wireless applications worldwide is expected to decline by 0.6% annually from 2004 to 2006 as many wireless operators in established markets continue to look to collocation and network sharing to expand networks. However, the China market will continue to show significant growth of over 10% annually.
New York, NY -- Representing 3.5% of the total market for wireless infrastructure equipment, antenna markets will continue to grow through 2006 at an average annual rate of 11.7%. Although the market for new installs is sluggish in the United States and Europe, market growth in those regions will be driven by operators seeking to expand and fill in coverage gaps as an interim solution before investing capital in complete cell site installations. In areas where network growth continues to be strong, such as China and Latin America, the market for antennas will be driven by new construction.
