Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) is a technology whereby mechanical and electromechanical elements are miniaturized. These elements are made using micro-fabrication techniques and run on electricity. MEMS technologies are used in automotive industries, known as automotive MEMS, to enhance the safety features of the vehicle. Electronic Stability Control (ESC), airbags, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and navigation are some of the major automotive applications where MEMS systems are installed. Automotive MEMS technology can also be implemented for various applications including safety and control, powertrain, infotainment, comfort and convenience and vehicle security systems among others.

Anti-theft systems, rollover detection, vehicle dynamic control and crash sensing are some of the recent advancements in the field of automotive MEMS technologies. Installation of technologically advanced automotive MEMS systems in vehicles helps the cars manufacturers to obtain competitive edge by differentiating its products from other vendors thus contributing to the growth of the overall automotive MEMS market. Government regulations for emission and fuel efficiency standards further trigger the adoption of MEMS systems in order to operate engine efficiently with reduced carbon emission. Government emissions in the developing economies such as India and China for reducing fuel emissions foresee tremendous growth for the automotive MEMS market.
However, lack of sound knowledge of driver or the technicians about the technicalities of the system is one of the constraints of the market. Also, these MEMS systems are not standardized and every car manufacturer has its own system which further increases the complications of drivers and technicians in understanding the operations of the system. Further, regions with harsh climatic conditions such as continuous rainfall and snow may affect the operations of such systems. In addition, replacing the entire MEMS system for a minor fault may be unaffordable for few car owners, which is also one of the challenge to the growth of the market. These factors adversely impact the growth of automotive MEMS market.
