News Flash: Roger Grace's Blog on MEMS Commercialization 2007 - "The future is very bright for MEMS, especially in the "killer application" sector. Whereas in the past only a handful of these high-volume applications existed, I expect to see many more opportunities for MEMS in many other areas, including biomedical applications." This has been found to be true recently with Yole's 2011 analysis of the MEMS industry.
