ToF sensors measure the time taken by a wave pulse to travel through a medium right from its emission to its reflection from an object, and its return to the ToF sensor. A ToF camera sensor can be used to measure the distance and the volume of the target. Also, it finds applications in object scanning and tracking, indoor navigation, obstacle avoidance, gesture recognition, and reactive altimeters. Data generated from the ToF sensor can also help in 3D imaging and improving augmented reality (AR) experiences. In smartphones, ToF camera sensors are likely to be used for 3D photography and AR.
The ToF sensor market is expected to grow from USD 2.8 billion in 2020 to USD 6.9 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 20.0%. The growth of this market is mainly driven by the increasing demand for ToF sensors from the automotive industry and the growing adoption of 3D cameras in smartphones and increasing use of such smartphones. The increasing adoption of 3D machine vision systems in various industries and growing deployment of Industry 4.0 are likely to provide major opportunities for the ToF sensor market.

3D imaging and scanning application is expected to hold the largest share of the ToF sensor market during the forecast period. 3D imaging provides visual effects that generate a perception of the depth of an object, and viewers get an enriched 360-degree viewing experience of the image. 3D scanning technology is used to capture a 3D model of an object. It uses depth-sensing technology to accurately capture the area and dimensions of the object, and this mapped data can be used for designing purposes. In the coming years, the demand for 3D scanning technology would increase due to the ease of usage. Moreover, due to the low cost, the demand for time of flight technology will increase for 3D imaging and scanning application.
The consumer electronics vertical is the largest adopter of ToF sensors. The increasing use of 3D ToF camera sensors in smartphones, tablets, cameras, and so on to provide superior picture quality is expected to drive the ToF sensor market for the consumer electronics vertical.
The ToF sensor market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
