There is no doubt that growth in MEMS related application has just begun. But is it on ST that will benefit from this growth ? What other players do you think will benefit from this boom.

It's evident that consumers want fancier and more techie cars each time. I bet the newest include touch screen displays and bluetooth wireless at least. The sensors will not only provide information of the car operation to the main ECU but it will also gather data from the passengers. I can't help imagining the "Mirority Report" movie which was very futuristic. And the car repair shop will become what...?

I could see expansion still in most markets. Due not to increased bells and whistles on a few cars but driven by the continued expansion of MEMs in mid and low range vehicles. Consumers will want the increased gas mileage, safety features, and nice add ons (rear view cameras). This will be accelerated if and when the volume driven prices on MEMs makes them more accessible and less an esoteric high end feature.

I agree with this report provided that the demand will be driven by the emerging markets. with high unemployment in the western world, buying new cars is not that a good fun. But China, Brazil, Russia, etc are doing well. So it is safe to agree with this report. But I expect the US to remain flat or even decrease unless the economy picks up and hiring comes back.
