Abstract: First published in 1998, Roger Grace Associates has created and conducted the MEMS Industry Commercialization Report Card (Report Card) Study which has annually monitored the “health” of the worldwide MEMS industry vis-à-vis 14 subjects (a.k.a. critical success factors) and supplemented by verbatims from the respondents. The Report Card market study uses the “Delphi Method” which is based on the inputs of a limited number of highly experienced and acknowledged worldwide MEMS industry experts. The 2021 Report Card overall grade was a C+ which declined from the previous five years grade of B- and with virtually all of the 14 subjects receiving decreasing grades. The hundreds of verbatim responses received along with the letter grades emphatically showed the culprit of the grade decreases to be inextricably linked to the results of the effects of Covid. This was especially true in the subject of “Established Infrastructure” where the grade decreased from B+ to B- and was primarily due to supply chain disruptions. Recommendations of the study include actionable strategies to mitigate and overcome the highly expected resulting negative effects to the MEMS commercialization process due to expected continuance of Covid into 2022.
