Summary Methodology

Image Sensor Market size is anticipated to grow substantially over the forecast timespan with rise in demand of these components in the automotive sector. The increased need and requirement of safety and security in vehicles is augmenting the demand for vision systems which would assist the passenger in driving the vehicle safely. The widespread adoption of (ADAS) Advanced in Driver Assistance Systems in luxury vehicles in developed nations propelling the image sensor market. These system uses image sensors to provide safety and precaution of the driver by offering several features such as (LDW) Lane Departure Warning, (APA) Advanced Parking Assistance and collision avoiding system. Several technologies that are used to provide these features are integrated cameras, sensor, LIDAR and radars. In addition, these components find applications in passenger classification, driver state monitoring, presence & object detection etc. propelling the market growth.

Growing demand of inbuilt cameras in smartphones, tablets and webcams in PC have augmented the need and requirement of enhanced image quality, which is encouraging the developers to provide new technological advancements in their offerings in image sensor market. Image quality is one of the major parameters that the consumers consider while buying a smartphone and hence manufacturers consistently work to improve and satisfy the demands of the customers. For instance, In 2016, Samsung adopted 12 MP Fast 29 sensor which has high speed focus and track & lock-on moving objects features in low light also. These sensors were initially incorporated in the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus & Samsung Galaxy S8. The demand for enhanced image quality, higher resolution is increasing among the customers, which is a growth and opportunity for the developers of image sensor market.

Miniaturization of the electronic components and equipment in the electronic devices is driving the need for design of the small size sensors in image sensor market. The benefit of the integration of these small size sensors would be that developers will be provided with extra space to integrate the other technologies and provide extra value to the customers. Advancements in silicon electronics miniaturization has made it possible to reduce the size of a transistor to around 0.1 micron and the most advanced ICs are as small as 0.8 microns. Demand and requirements of these components in smart watches has encouraged the developers in the image sensor market to build micro components which will be integrated in these devices. For instance, Sony introduced 1MP-2mm sensor, which will allow the users to capture images with these devices and benefit the manufacturers to build these devices with lighter weight and with advanced functions. Sony Smartwatch 3 is a product Samsung adopted 12 MP Fast 29 of Sony Corporation which has in-built camera. Growing demand of these products is increasing the need of these components in market.

3-D image sensor market is a flourishing segment witnessing high adoption across the industrial, automotive and consumer electronics industry. These components provide the user experience of 3-D surrounding, which enables them to judge, monitor, evaluate and focus on the minute things and elements of the surrounding. Application of these components in AR/VR devices is increasing the demand of the products providing 3-D effect in the market Several players in the industry are offering devices with these components, for instance, Real 3 by Infineon Technologies is the smallest 3D (ToF) Time of Flight camera and first 3D sensor integrated in smartphones. The several advantages offered by this device include unique performance, manifold features and high level of integration with reliability and accuracy in data and small camera module design.

Application of these components in healthcare sector for monitoring and analyzing the tests and parameters is increasing the need and demand of these components in image sensor market. These components are integrated in several healthcare machines for carrying out tests and examinations such as endoscopy, dental X-ray, Thorax ray, FFCOT and mammography, which allows these devices to capture the clear picture of the several organs, tissues, bones and nerves. The growth in healthcare market for endoscopic machines and their importance in this sector is increasing rapidly, which is driven by the socio-economic trends, invasive diagnosis and therapeutic operations and thereby, growing the need and importance of these components in market.

Asia Pacific accounted for most of the image sensor market share owing to the flourishing consumer electronic industry. Presence of several device manufacturers creates high demand and requirement for these components. The major developed countries in this region such as China and South Korea are contributing significantly towards the market growth. In addition, the healthcare sector is experiencing high adoption and integration of these components in their devices for performing several processes and operations such as X-ray imaging applications and rotational radiography. This will propel the market growth in the region. Presence

Key players operating in image sensor market are Samsung, Teledyne, OmniVision, Sony, On Semiconductor, Canon, SK Hynix, Panasonic, STMicroelectronics, PixelPlus, Hamamatsu, Pixart Imaging, ams, Himax, Aptina Imaging, Toshiba, Nikon, GalaxyCore, SiliconFile, Melexis, EM Microelectronics and Sharp among others. These players are competing based on the needs and requirements of the widespread customer base and launching new technologies They are adopting several strategies such as new product development and product differentiation and also planning their strategies such as price cuts in market. In May 2019, Samsung launched 64mp and 48mp image sensors aimed for smartphones that features the company’s Isocell Plus technology and Tetracell technology. These new components will enable users to take better photos in dark conditions fueling the market.
