his article is a marked departure
from my annual reporting on the
past year's performance of the
health of the MEMS industry visà-vis
my MEMS Industry Commercialization
Report Card.[1]
Here, I have requested
several of my colleagues representing
the breadth of the sensors/MEMS commercialization
process global supply
chain (Figure 1) to provide forecasts for
the sensors/MEMS industry for 2022
and the challenges that the industry will
face in 2022, strategies that they can embrace
to overcome them, and the current
and future state of the sensors/
MEMS industry. Additionally, they shared
opinions on emerging technologies and
the possible future impact of COVID-19
on the industry, including the global
supply chain. Comments have been edited
for length and clarity.
Why does addressing this topic matter?
