Market Highlights:

An image sensor detects and provides any related information regarding an image. It is most commonly used in digital cameras and imaging devices to transform the light that falls on their respective lenses into a digital image. The image sensor market is segmented on the basis of technology that includes charged coupled device (CCD), complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS), scientific complementary metal oxide semiconductor (sCMOS) and others.

Image sensors are known to enhance camera technologies. That being said, the adoption of image sensors in digital cameras, along with laptops and smartphones alike, is fuelling the growth of image sensor market. Most digital cameras use a CMOS sensor owing to its faster speed and low power consumption. CMOS sensors are also known to be cost-effective. Thus, there has been an increase in the use of digital cams and webcams, which is ultimately driving the image sensors market.

The growth in the adoption of image sensors in various extensive applications has been witnessed in the industrial segment too. The two major image sensors that are being used in the industrial segment are CCD and CMOS. Availability of CMOS sensors at low cost is the main reason driving the growth of image sensors market. These sensors are also used in automotive sector specifically in advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) and ensure driver safety and offer parking assistance, lane departure warning, and collision avoidance systems. Machine vision is another application of image sensors that combine CMOS image sensors and CCD image quality to produce high data rate and low power digital interface. Other industrial applications of image sensors include drones and robotics.
