Low-light Imaging Market: Key Trends

The automotive sector is expected to contribute promising revenue to the low-light imaging market in the near future. Rapid adoption of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) for automobiles is indirectly paving way for demand of low-light imaging. Low-light image sensors are used in components of ADAS for blind spot monitoring, forward-collision warning, and lane-keep assistance.

Besides this, dash cameras, rear-view cameras, front-view machine vision cameras, camera monitor systems, and 360-degree surround-view cameras are some areas in automobiles where low-light image sensors are used.

For low-light imaging sensors, CMOS technology is predicted to witness maximum demand. Rising popularity of CMOS technology for application-specific integrated circuit (ASICs), microprocessors, and memories for semiconductors will indirectly stoke demand for low-lighting imaging sensors. The low-lighting imaging market witness gains, in turn.

Innovations in medical devices for complex procedures is another key factor boosting low-light imaging market. Low-light imaging enabled endoscopic devices for both diagnostic and surgical procedures is an example of low-light imaging application for medical devices. This propels low-light imaging market. OmniVision’s launch of OV2741 - a new PureCel-S stacked-die sensor is an addition to its offerings of medical image sensors. The compact chip-scale sensor provides 1080p full HD resolution and high image quality for lucid internal viewing of organs.
