The CMOS image sensor market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.8% between 2015 and 2020, from USD 9.80 Billion in 2015 to USD 17.1 Billion by 2020. The growth of the market is driven by factors such as the growing implementation of CMOS image sensor in the consumer electronics segment, investment by players to develop CMOS image sensor for automotive sector, and support of 4K pixel technology for the growth of the security and surveillance sector.

There is a growing market for CMOS image sensors in consumer electronics, automotive, and security & surveillance. The growing adoption of smartphones with inbuilt front and back cameras has accelerated the growth of the consumer electronics market. The innovation of self-driving cars and advancement in driver safety with the help of ADAS has fueled the growth of the automotive application. The ability of CMOS image sensor to perform in various lighting conditions such as dim light, darkness, and low light has also boosted the implementation of CMOS image sensors for security purposes, thereby supporting the CMOS image sensor market for security & surveillance.

The CMOS image sensor market is segmented on the basis of technology into CMOS and others. The CMOS market is further segmented into FSI, BSI, and others. FSI is a traditional method which was used for imaging with the help of metal wiring layer and transistors; however, this produces poor images in low light conditions. BSI overcomes this disadvantage and is widely used in applications such as consumer electronics, security & surveillance, and aerospace & defense as it provides high dynamic range, high sensitivity, low noise, and better quality of images. Another type of CMOS technology is 3D stacking which helps in reducing the size of the chip, while packing more pixels per unit size. Sony Corporation is an active participant in the development of 3D stacked image sensors.

Consumer electronics is the largest market in Asia-Pacific, whereas the automotive application is expected to grow at a high CAGR between 2015 and 2020. The major reasons driving the growth of APAC in the CMOS image sensor market is the large number of users for mobile devices, webcams, and tablet PCs. Some of the major companies such as Sony Corporation (Japan), Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd (South Korea), SK Hynix Inc. (South Korea) and Sharp Corporation (Japan) are located in this region.

CMOS Image Sensor Market

The shortage of CMOS image sensor in APAC is the major restraint for the development of the market. The demand for consumer electronics in APAC is high, which drives the demand for CMOS image sensors. Sony, the major supplier of CMOS image sensors, is unable to satisfy the demand of vendors situated in this region. According to Taiwan’s handset supply chain, Sony was ~30% short of fulfilling its demands from smartphone vendors such as Xiaomi Technology, Huawei Device, Coolpad, and ZTE in May 2015. The vendors re expected to shift to the suppliers such as OmniVision, Samsung Electronics, and Toshiba for overcoming this shortage.

Sony Corporation (Japan) is the major player in the CMOS image sensor market. It has taken steps to develop CMOS image sensors for various applications by investing USD 895 Million (105 Billion yen) to increase the production capacity for stacked CMOS image sensors and it has also commercialized the CMOS image sensor for automotive cameras. The company has also developed CMOS image sensors with the help of Exmor technology for applications such as consumer electronics, automotive, and security.
