Global Image sensor Market 2020: Industry Insights and Major Players

The global image sensor market was valued at USD 15,153.3 million in 2018 and is expected to reach USD xx million in 2026, growing at a CAGR of 10.2% during the forecast period.

The increasing implementation of dual cameras in smartphones and the innovations in the image sensors technology are accentuating the growth of the image sensor market. A major number of smartphones OEMs are offering dual camera-enabled smartphones phones. These cameras offer a high resolution and improved pixel sizes by using image sensors. Most of the dual camera-enabled tablets and smartphones use CMOS based image sensors due to their ability to consume very less power, better frame rate compared to CCD based image sensors. In recent times, smartphones with a dual-camera are started using costly backside-illuminated (BSI) CMOS due to less energy consumption. These factors are considered to drive the growth of the market for the coming years. Major manufacturers in the market are focusing on the development of innovative products for tablets and smartphones. These newly developed image sensors have helped to produce miniaturized smartphones that have high-resolution image sensors in the form of small chips.
