Market Overview




Image sensors are broadly categorized under CCD image sensors (area image sensor), linear image sensors and X-ray image sensors. Linear image sensors are further segmented into CMOS image sensors, NMOS image sensors and InGaAs image sensors. The linear image sensors command the largest share of shipment and revenue, largely due to CMOS image sensors, which accounts for more than 90% of the linear image sensor market.

Growing technological advancement and faster adoption of new generation of mobile technology has spurred the demand for high resolution imaging technology. With nationwide mobile penetration inching towards 100%, mobile phone manufacturers are introducing a new array of imaging-enabled products. Current differentiators for imaging in mobile technology are low cost, low power, high performance and small size. Increasing integration and low power operation has opened new application segments for image sensors.

CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) image sensors facilitate large scale integration and can enable a single chip to accommodate all camera functions, which eliminates the need for additional support packaging and assembly; thus lowering cost. Market players are progressively providing higher levels of integration by incorporating DSPs (digital signal processing), as well as ISPs (integrated signal processing). Other ground-breaking features such as multiple color filters that allow JPEG images conversion on the sensor are also supporting the market growth.

Continuously growing different varieties and forms of sensors used in handsets, tablets and motion-based image sensors applications are becoming more sophisticated and elegant; moving further than screen rotation. The blending of signals of various sensors is facilitating the faster, smoother and precise description of motion in mobile devices. This accuracy is well-matched for novel applications including gaming, augmented reality and motion-based web browsing.

Image sensor prices have shown a downward trend over the last few years and are expected to have a similar trend over the next few years. The average selling price per unit of overall image sensors in the U.S. stood at USD 3.9 in 2011. Average cost per unit for CMOS image sensors in the same year was USD 3.5 whereas average cost of CCD image sensors was USD 8.3 per unit.

With growing safety and security standards, a large number of automobile manufacturers are upgrading their vehicles, which is expected to drive the image sensors market. Low-priced and efficient design capabilities of image sensors make them ideal for automotive applications. Mobile handsets are the leading application for CMOS sensors, representing more than 75% of the total CMOS shipments in 2011. The use of CCD technology will shrink from 14% in 2011 to just 1.3% by 2017.

Growing popularity of smartphones in the U.S. region is expected to increase the market prospects for image sensors in the near future. Significant opportunities in the image sensor market are expected over the next few years. With the increase in the use of image sensor devices in biometrics, medical, and film cameras in accordance with vehicle driver assistance systems, security and surveillance devices are expected to have a substantial market in the future.

The image sensor market in the U.S. is growing rapidly with a large number of competitors on the scene. Global players are forcing local players to manufacture new products as the market is growing rapidly. This is causing an add on advantage for good manufacturing practices for the U.S. image sensor market with the increase in market share in terms of quality of the image sensor products.

There are about 23 major sensor types used in a range of sub-systems and instruments for increasing number of end markets across the world. Image sensors now hold a commendable position in the global sensors market with variety of applications for a large number of end use segments.
