ANN ARBOR, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 23, 2005--The sporting goods market
is a fantastic win-win for suppliers of MEMS (MicroElectroMechanical Systems)
devices and nanomaterials reports EmTech Research, a division of Small Times
Media ( http://www.emtechresearch.com ).
The ability of MEMS sensors and nanomaterials to provide improved product performance
and functionality that meet the needs of a competitive industry, at a price
sports equipment manufacturers are willing to pay, is key.
"The impact of MEMS and nanotechnology on sporting
goods as a whole is far greater than sports' impact
to the bottom line of the companies supplying these
sensors and materials," says Marlene Bourne, Vice
President of Research and Principal Analyst with
EmTech Research. "But it's an ideal way for a startup
and its technology to gain visibility in the broader
A report from EmTech Research also finds that:
- From Redington's Nano-Titanium fly fishing rods
to Suunto's sensor-packed, wrist-top computers
for hikers and snowboarders, nearly every sporting
goods category has been touched.
- Focusing on consumer applications is not without
its hazards; both MEMS and nanomaterials suppliers
need to understand the needs of the end user.
- Revenues of MEMS sensors and nanomaterials for
use within sporting goods are forecast to increase
to just under $100 million by 2009.
The just released report, Bigger, Faster, Stronger:
MEMS and Nanotechnology Pump Up Sports, provides
an in-depth look at how MEMS and nanotechnology are
changing the world of sports.
