With the kind of miniaturization that has taken the semicondutor industry from micrometer scale to nanometer scale has made most of the products  of today unrepairableand totally useless once a fault gets developed into them.

It is difficult for the design engineers to conceptualise a prodcut which can be repaired or its parts can be segragated and sold when it stops serving its original purpose.

MEMS has brought even miniaturization in the mechanical systems.
