Returning to a live format, MEMS and Sensors Executive Conference (MSEC 2021) will gather industry visionaries and experts October 11-13 at the Coronado Island Marriott Resort in San Diego for insights into the latest trends and innovations in sensorization for growth markets including medical, fitness, connected communities, environmental and air quality, and wearables. Registration is open for MSEC 2021, hosted by the MEMS & Sensors Industry Group (MSIG), a SEMI technology community.
Internet of Things (IoT) spending is surging as digital transformation continues apace, creating new opportunities for MEMS and sensors innovations. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for IoT spending will reach 26.7% between 2022 and 2025 as the number of global IoT connections reaches a forecasted 31 billion, a tenfold increase from a decade ago, according to IoT Analytics. The market research firm reports that in 2020, IoT connections for smart devices such as cars, home electronics and connected industrial equipment outnumbered non-IoT-connected electronics for the first time.
“Sensors are driving the widespread adoption of smart and connected IoT systems, which require unprecedented amounts of data,” said Dr. Tim Brosnihan, executive director of the SEMI MEMS & Sensors Industry Group. “By better monitoring the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, the health of our bodies and the safety of our surroundings, sensors continue to improve the quality of our lives.”
Themed Sensorization: Enabling Better, Smarter Living, MSEC 2021 will focus on technology solutions to pressing challenges in healthcare, the environment, resource management, transportation, and safety. The event will showcase components, software, and systems critical to MEMS and sensors innovations.
The health and well-being of all event exhibitors and attendees remains the top priority for SEMI. MSEC 2021 health and safety guidelines to protect against spread of COVID-19 will help provide a safe experience for all attendees on-site.
