Market Outlook:

The global CMOS Image Sensor market was valued at USD 20,725 Mn in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 39,624 Mn by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 8.6% during the forecast period. CMOS image sensor, known as complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor image sensor, is a technology found in digital cameras with integrated electronic circuitry. It is responsible for converting incoming photon flux into digital signals. CMOS image sensors record the image captured. CMOS sensors are made of millions of pixel sensors and consist of a photo detector. These pixel sensors, along with the photo detector, enable the camera to record an image by giving information, which the camera subsequently converts into digital reading. These image sensors are available in a variety of sizes, including wafer size and sensor size. Each pixel on a CMOS image sensor includes both a photodiode and a CMOS transistor switch, enabling pixel signals to be amplified separately. Pixel signals are accessed consecutively and directly, at a faster rate than a CCD sensor, by activating the matrix of switches. Key advantage of having an amplifier for each pixel is that it lowers the noise that arises while reading electrical signals converted from recorded light.

CMOS Image Sensor Market key takeaways

Market Dynamics

Increasing incorporation of cameras in electronic devices such as tablets and smartphones is one of the key factors contributing to the growth of the market. The quality of images captured in smartphones is increasing, as manufacturers are focusing on development of image sensors with improved functionalities to maintain the slimness and usability of smartphones. Installation of multiple cameras in a single smartphone unit results in improved high-dynamic range, low light photography, and optical zoom, as well as 3D imaging features and portrait mode.

Increasing popularity of social networking applications contributes to the adoption of high resolution camera modules in consumer electronics such as digital cameras and smartphones. Manufacturers are incorporating high-quality camera lenses in consumer electronics. Canon offers a CMOS image sensor that offers an image resolution of around 120 megapixels. Increasing use of social networking applications is anticipated to reflect a positive impact on the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Adverse impact of the coronavirus is felt across the globe. The lockdown impeded the production of CMOS image sensors, due to shutting down of manufacturing units in 2020 and 2021. Slowdown of industries such as electronics and automobiles is anticipated to hamper the usage of CMOS image sensors. Additionally, the pandemic caused a lack of supply of raw materials. Opening up of manufacturing units by the fourth quarter of 2021, with essential precautions and compliance with government regulations, is expected to boost the production gradually in the near future.

Rising implementation of cameras in augmented reality (AR), artificial intelligence (AI), and virtual reality (VR) applications, as well as in driverless or autonomous cars, is expected to create new opportunities and drive revenue streams for players operating in the image sensor market. Over the years, surveillance cameras, smartphones, and other devices are leveraging AI to improve the quality of the pictures taken, thereby driving the market during the forecast period.

Segmental Outlook

By Types Segment

In terms of types, the global CMOS image sensor market is classified as front-illuminated sensor and backside-illuminated sensor segments. The front-illuminated sensor segment accounts for a considerable share of the global market; however, the backside-illuminated sensor segment is anticipated to grow significantly during the forecast period. Increasing demand for visual surveillance and intrusion detection in intelligent surveillance systems, aerial surveillance in war zones, and environmental surveillance by satellites in space monitoring is propelling the backside-illuminated sensor segment.
