Micro-cantilever also called as MEMS cantilevers which are used as transducers, sensors, needles, probes, resonators, latches, transport mechanisms, relays and switches. In addition to this, micro-cantilever based sensors can be operated under different types of medium which includes air, vacuum or in liquid. Diverse applications of micro-cantilevers in the field of sensors have been explored by many researchers. However, the recent development of Nano-cantilevers have scaled down the micro-cantilever based sensor technology, which is anticipated to boost the micro-cantilever based sensor market growth during the forecast period. Across the globe, molecular diagnostic devices are getting smaller with the advancement of miniaturization of circuit and technologies, which in turn is projected to bolster the demand for the global micro-cantilever based sensor market. Furthermore, micro-cantilever based sensors have massive prospective for the detection of different analytics in gaseous, vacuum and liquid medium. These sensor, commonly found in atomic force microscopy, have excellent potential as sensors due to several different types advantages which includes ultra-sensitivity, low cost and ease of mass production. Furthermore, compare to conventional sensor, micro-cantilever based sensing has very high sensitivity, lower power requirement and short response time due to its miniature in size.
