Image sensors are mainly utilized in imaging instruments and cameras. Rising demand for tablet PCs, camera enabled mobile phones and digital cameras has boosted the image sensors market further. Manufacturers of image sensors are constantly attempting to come up with sensors with different pixel counts, pixel sizes, performances and resolutions. This would help these sensors capture a large percentage of the image sensors market.
Image sensors are majorly utilized in the clients sector. The same is on account of the escalating demand for tablets and camera enabled mobile phones in the world. These gadgets primarily utilize CMOS sensors owing to their quicker frame rates, lower power utilization and simplicity of integration. In 2012, the worldwide image sensors market was estimated to have collected about USD 6, 845 million. The biggest utilization of image sensors comes across in digital cameras.
However, with unparalleled escalation in smartphone consignments across the globe, the utilization of image sensors in smartphone cameras is anticipated to rise. Apart from these leading client applications, image sensors are also utilized in mechanized quality control to enhance the output of products. The consumption of image sensors in technologies concerning image processing and machine vision would augur well for the image sensors market and propel it further.
The global market is trifurcated into three categories. These are technologies, applications and geographies.
The vital image sensors market technologies are inclusive of contact, complementary meta-oxide-semiconductors and charge-coupled devices. Charge-coupled devices possess many capacitors that get charged with regard to the quantity of light dropping on them.
This is followed by an arithmetic value to generate the resulting image. These sensors (charge-coupled devices) are specifically productive in technical and healthcare instruments. Conversely, this sector has reduced in size due to the presence of CMOS image sensors. CMOS sensors are estimated to lead the image sensors market over the forecast phase.
The vital application sectors of the image sensors market are consumer electronics, automotives, aerospace and defense, industrial, healthcare, surveillance, among others. Exceptional demand for consumer electronics is also predicted to be a significant propeller of the market. The sectors of automotives and consumer electronics jointly occupied nearly 55 percent share in 2012. Intensifying apprehensions with regard to safety and confidentiality have steered further demand for the image sensors market in surveillance.
North America dominated the global image sensors market in 2012. The region captured about 35 percent share. The Asian Pacific market is projected to expand most swiftly in the years ahead. This is primarily owing to boosting demand for imager sensors in various consumer sectors of the region. This regional image sensors market is also likely to notice about 6 percent CAGR during 2014 to 2020.
