It's kinda annoying that when they say "VME" they are really talking about the whole VITA standards range. That's like saying "ethernet" and meaning PCIe and serial RapidIO just because those use trasceivers too. VME is 30 years old, and should be on its way out. VPX, ATCA, etc. are not like VME at all... I suspect that the VPX market is growing as the standards have been tightened up recently, and adoption is increasing.

I guess it might be because of recession in US economy.

With the increasing sales in the semi conductors it is clear that the market is not in slump. But still the VME boards might be suffering actually due to the competitive and standard reference solutions are available directly from the micro controller and microprocessor vendors. Standardization of different business may not be real blame, only the features of the single board computers may not be interesting for the OEM's.
