Image Sensor Market by Type (CMOS, CCD, and Others), Specification, Application (Aerospace, Automotive, Consumer Electronics, Healthcare, Industrial, Entertainment, and Security & Surveillance), and Region - Global Forecast to 2020

The high resolution and high quality of images in addition to low manufacturing cost has helped the advancement and development of image sensors. It uses two basic technologies, namely, CMOS and CCD. The companies involved in the development of image sensors are consistently working to improve the performance of sensors.

The image sensor market has been segmented on the basis of technology into CMOS, CCD, and other sensor. Currently, CMOS sensors are used for most applications. Sony Corporation (Japan), one of the major companies, is emphasizing more on the development of CMOS sensor, and plans to discontinue the production of CCD image sensor by 2017. Image sensors have a high demand in the automotive application, owing to the implementation of cameras in the automotive sector and the development of self-driving car. Sony Corporation (Japan) and OmniVision Technologies Inc. (U.S.) are among the players who are developing CMOS image sensor for the automotive sector. Sony has collaborated with ZMP Inc. (Japan) to develop self-driving cars which incorporate CMOS image sensor. The image sensor market has also been segmented on the basis of specification into image processing type, spectrum, and array type. The image processing type includes 2D and 3D CMOS image sensor. The market for 3D CMOS image sensor is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 33.91% between 2015 and 2020, owing to the high resolution and depth sensing feature it offers.
