Image Sensor Market – Global Equipment Analysis and Forecast 2021-2027

Image Sensor Market was worth US$ 8.6 Bn. in 2020 and total revenue is expected to grow at a rate of 4.5 % CAGR from 2021 to 2027, reaching almost US$ 11.70 Bn. in 2027.

Image Sensor Market Overview:

The Image Sensor Market An image sensor, sometimes known as an imager, is a sensor that delivers data for the creation of an image. They are either semiconductor charge-coupled devices or active pixel sensors in interdependent metal-oxide-semiconductor. Samsung and Sony are the two primary companies in the image sensor market. The new Korean business SK hynix has entered the image sensor industry, competing with Sony and Samsung. The majority of the market is accounted for by image sensors used in electronic imaging devices such as digital cameras, medical imaging equipment, camera modules, night vision equipment, and thermal imaging devices. Increased spending on security and monitoring in public areas around the world, as well as the rising use of technologies for improving anti-terror equipment and eliminating security flaws, are expected to drive the image sensor market in the coming years. The Global Image Sensor Market report provides a thorough examination of the market.

Image Sensor Market Overview and Dynamics:

The report covers comprehensive data on market drivers, restraints, emerging trends, and growth opportunities that can change the market dynamics of the end use industry. It provides an in-depth analysis of the Image Sensor Market segments which include products, applications, and competitor analysis.

The increasing number of cameras used in mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets is one of the key factors driving the growth of the image sensor industry. OEMs are attempting to produce image sensors with a small footprint and more functionality as the importance of camera functionalities and picture quality in smartphones develops, in order to make smartphones useful and thin. The broad availability of light detection and ranging (LiDAR) technology for use in driverless vehicles is suffocating the market for image sensors. Automakers demand environmental sensing technology in their self-driving cars. Vehicle computing systems can employ these technologies to control their speed, as well as decide where to turn, when to change lanes, and when to brake. Businesses working on autonomous vehicles are now using LiDAR technology, which is an upgraded version of short-range radar detection and ranging (RADAR), and a system of cameras to acquire visual information about their surroundings.

Increased camera adoption in artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR) applications, as well as driverless cars, is expected to provide image sensor manufacturers with new opportunities and revenue streams. AI has been utilised in smartphones, security cameras, and other devices to improve photo quality, decode recorded films, and identify objects from humans over time. The principal uses of AI-enabled cameras rely on photographs and videos transmitted to processing units that can be saved on the cloud. There is a risk of data leakage during the transmission of these images and videos. To circumvent these restrictions, companies like Sony Corporation (Japan) are developing AI-enabled image sensors. In May 2020, Sony Corporation (Japan) introduced the IMX500, which combines computing power and memory. This image sensor performs machine learning and supports in the powering of computer vision operations without the requirement of additional hardware. 3D ToF image sensors can be utilised in smartphones for AR/VR applications to provide a 3D perception of the environment.
