MEMS & Sensors Industry Group Conference Asia explores MEMS, sensors in IoT of today and tomorrow

Recognizing the massive growth potential of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) and sensors in Internet of Things (IoT) applications, MEMS & Sensors Industry Group (MSIG) will hold its third annual MEMS & Sensors Industry Group Conference Asia in Shanghai, China on September 13-14, 2016. Held in partnership with Shanghai Industrial Technology Research Institute (SITRI) and co-located with SENSOR CHINA, “The Internet of MEMS and Sensors Today and the Internet of TSensors Tomorrow” is a two-day conference focused on near- and long-term opportunities for MEMS and sensors in the IoT. MSIG and its members will also participate in a two-day exposition at SENSOR CHINA.

The IoT market is expanding rapidly, presenting huge market opportunities for MEMS and sensors. According to IHS Technology, the IoT market will grow from 15.4 billion devices in 2015 to 75.4 billion in 2025.

That growth has caught the attention of the global MEMS and sensors supply chain: “MEMS and sensors are critical to IoT devices,” said Karen Lightman, executive director, MEMS & Sensors Industry Group. “From smartphones that monitor air quality and agricultural sensors that manage irrigation to smart city applications that monitor structural health, adapt street lights to weather and light conditions, and enable smart roads, MEMS and sensors allow IoT devices to measure, monitor, sense and interact with our always-changing environment.”

Ms. Lightman added, “On September 13, attendees will gain actionable intelligence on the IoT devices of the near future — those applications that will reach commercialization within the next two to five years. On September 14, they will learn about the IoT devices that will come to market in ten to 20 years. Those speakers will address our TSensors vision — a transformational movement advocating the use of a trillion sensors to address major world problems — as they consider longer-term opportunities in the IoT.”
