CMOS Image Sensor Market to Surpass $13 Billion by 2019

PUNE, India -- The new report on CMOS image sensor market says Belgian nanoelectronics research center IMEC has claimed to develop a CMOS image sensor for high-performance applications like cameras, automotive and many other such applications that is based on CCD technology. The integration of CCD and CMOS is done by combining the best of both worlds i.e., the CCD's attribute of low-noise performance along with the fast readouts technology of the CMOS image sensor. This combination has the capability of being the best sensor and will drive the CMOS image sensors market. The market research analyst has estimated this market to surpass USD 13 billion by 2019 owing to its augmented adoption in the automotive and industrial sectors.

According to the Global CMOS Image Sensor Market 2015 - 2019 report, there will be a high adoption of CMOS sensors in automotive, which will lead to the growth of the CMOS image sensors market. In automotive, the image sensors are used for ADAS. ADAS uses image sensors to offer features like parking assistance, lane departure warning, and collision avoidance systems. Car manufacturers like Nissan, Ford, and Tesla are already marketing their vehicles on the basis of image sensors. The emerging importance of CMOS image sensors in automotive will drive the market.

Application-based segmentation of the CMOS image sensor market: Consumer electronics, Automotive, Industrial and Medical. In this market analysis, the market research analysts have estimated the consumer electronics segment to account for nearly 45% of the total market share by 2019. Since this segment has the largest consumer base, implementation of CMOS sensors in devices like smartphones, tablets, PCs, and digital cameras is expected to result in its high market dominion during the forecast period.

The analysts estimate the Americas to show the highest market growth rate during the forecast period. Factors like its large consumer base for electronics like tablets and smartphones are expected to result in its high market share of nearly 40% by 2019.

The following companies are the key players in the Global CMOS Image Sensor Market: Canon, Omnivision, On Semiconductor, Samsung and Sony. And other prominent vendors in the market are Galaxycore, Toshiba, STMicroelectronics, Nikon, Pixelplus, and Pixart Imaging Inc.

Further, the report states that the cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry is the prime challenge the foundry market is witnessing. As a result of this cyclicality, semiconductor foundries often experience fluctuations in revenues, which adversely affect their profitability.
