By Dipl.-Wirtsch.-Ing. Rainer Bierhals, Dr. Kerstin Cuhls, Dipl.-Ing. Volker Hüntrup, Dipl.-Ing. Ulrich Thies, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hartmut Weule, Dipl.-Ing. Matthias Schünemann (auth.)

Die Mikrosystemtechnik gilt als eine der Schl?sseltechnologien zur Standortsicherung Deutschlands. Marktstudien haben in den letzten Jahren versucht, das power dieser Technologie zu quantifizieren, ohne dabei Firmenstrategien, konkurrierende Technologien und nationale Spezialisierungsmuster der Industrie zu ber?cksichtigen.
Dieses Buch beleuchtet die Potentiale der Mikrosystemtechnik qualitativ aus industriestrategischer Sicht. Die Miniaturisierung verl?uft danach noch auf vielen Einzelpfaden. Ein querschnitthafter Marktdurchbruch wird erst mittelfristig erwartet. Die deutsche Technologieposition ist vergleichsweise stark. Ausnahmen bestehen in den Bereichen Pr?zisions- und Feinwerktechnik, dem Werkzeugmaschinenbau und in der Biomedizin und Gentechnik, wo Wettbewerbsrisiken identifiziert wurden. Strategische Handlungsempfehlungen an Industrie und Politik zeichnen dieses Buch aus.
