Global Image Sensor Market is Set for a Rapid Growth and is Expected to Reach around USD 20.81 Billion by 2022

14-Sep-2017 | Zion Market Research

Zion Market Research has published a new report titled “Image Sensor Market by Technology (CMOS Image Sensor, CCD Image Sensor and Hybrid Image Sensor) for Aerospace, Automotive, Consumer Electronics, Healthcare, Industrial, Entertainment, Security & Surveillance and Other Applications: Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis, and Forecast, 2016-2022’’. According to the report, global image sensor market was valued at around USD 11.43 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach approximately USD 20.81 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of slightly above 10.5% between 2017 and 2022. 

Image sensors are mainly used in digital cameras and in a large number of imaging devices used in industrial, media, medical, and consumer applications. Growing demand for cameras, smartphones, and security cameras the image sensors market is experiencing significant growth. Furthermore, growing competition between established charge-coupled device (CCD) image sensors and the new complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors is impelling growth of this industry. With CMOS image sensors improving gradually and moving toward higher-level performance with better integration capabilities and cost advantages. The main difference between the two types of sensors is that Pixels in a CCD image sensor capture the light and move it to the edge of the chip where it is converted into a digital signal. In contrast, pixels in a CMOS sensor capture light and directly convert it into a digital signal. Uptake of CMOS image sensors in automotive and consumer electronics devices is anticipated to be growth drivers for the CMOS image sensor market. However, declining growth of still cameras and high manufacturing cost of image sensors are restraining the growth of this market. Nonetheless, increasing application of these sensors in gesture recognition devices, self-driving car and in body worn camera application will give momentum to the image sensor market during the forecast period.
