The electronic sensors market for the consumer industry is expected to reach USD 26.76 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 12.26% between 2016 and 2022. The growing demand for smartphones, tablets, laptops, and other portable electronic devices, emergence of fitness and activity trackers, growing adoption of augmented reality (AR)-based and virtual reality (VR)-based headsets are the key factors driving the growth of the electronic sensors market for the consumer industry. Image sensors, motion sensors, proximity sensors, and fingerprint sensors are predominantly used in smartphones, while temperature sensors, pressure sensors, and level sensors are used in home appliances.

In 2015, image sensors held the largest share of the electronic sensors market for the consumer industry owing to their large-scale deployment in smartphones and digital cameras. However, the market for fingerprint sensors is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2022 because of their growing adoption in a large number of electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops. These sensors are used to add another layer of security authentication for safe access of these devices. Fingerprint sensors are also likely to be commercialized in computer peripherals such as mouse and keypad in the near future.

The communication & IT application of the electronic sensors for consumer industry is expected to lead the growth of the market in the near future. The communication & IT segment comprises smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktop PCs. The demand for smartphones and the integration of numerous advanced features in that due to stiff competition among smartphones suppliers would further propel the growth of communication & IT segment in the electronic sensors market for consumer industry. Growth in adoption of motion sensors and certain environment sensors, such as MEMS pressure sensors and temperature sensors, is expected to drive the growth in wearable device segment.

Sensors Market

Conversely, lack of standard fabrication process for MEMS sensors is inhibiting the market growth. MEMS technology is used in the manufacturing of pressure, motion, and temperature sensors and plays a key role in consumer industry. Standardizing the fabrication process and sensors design would help to access the MEMS technology to large number of the OEMs and ODMs.

Sony Corporation (Japan) held the leading position in the electronic sensors market for consumer industry in 2015 with a range of image sensors that fulfill the needs of many participants of the consumer electronics industry, ranging from smartphone to digital camera. In June 2014, the company developed and launched the curved image sensor which mimics the retina of the human eye. Furthermore, the company has also taken an initiative to increase the funds for the R&D and production of the stacked image sensor. Company’s recent launch of Exmor RS CMOS sensor in February, 2016 further supports its inclination towards strengthening its position in the global image sensor market for consumer electronics. Considering the efforts the company is putting in the strategic acquisitions and expansion, it is likely to lead the trend of innovations in the image sensing technology in the nearest future.
