Function-wise, an image sensor is used to detect and relay information in order to create an image. These sensors are used in both digital and analog electronic imaging devices, such as camera modules, digital cameras, and night vision tools.

CMOS image sensors have been witnessing substantial demand owing to promising performance compared to CCD sensors. These sensors provide higher resolution and image quality as desired for various applications.

Key Findings of the Study

Rise in Demand for ADAS Systems Drives Demand in Automotive Sector Importance of image sensors in modern vehicles, wherein these components enable autonomous driving and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) help transform driving to make it safer, easier, and more comfortable, is boosting the global market.

Image sensors are widely used in the front and rear facing cameras of ADAS. Front facing cameras are critical in low visibility conditions, such as fog or heavy rain, to improve the driver’s visibility; rear cameras provide a view of the area behind the car to assist with navigation or parking in limited spaces. Usage in such critical applications is fueling the adoption of automotive image sensors.

Development of image sensor technology has enabled improved performance of ADAS and autonomous vehicle systems, which helps make driving more reliable and accurate. According to estimates by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, nearly 3.5 million self-driving vehicles are expected on the U.S. roads by 2025, and nearly 4.5 million by 2030. This is expected to create significant opportunities in the market in the next few years.

Demand for image sensors in automotive applications is anticipated to be high in the future, and advancements in image sensors are likely to assist in providing more accurate and reliable data to accelerate the development of safer and more efficient ADAS. This is anticipated to bolster global image sensor industry growth in the next few years.

Increase in Usage of Image Sensors in Consumer Electronics Sensors are integral components of consumer electronics. With consistent advancements in technology, image sensors have become more compact, cheaper, and efficient than their predecessors. These advancements in sensors are driving usage in portable devices, gaming, navigation, and home appliances.

Camcorders, smartphones, security cameras, and digital cameras are some electronic devices that display a sizable demand for image sensors.

Rise in popularity of posting images on social networking sites via mobile phones is creating significant market demand. Such practices are increasing the need for image sensors and providing opportunities for manufacturers to introduce imaging products.

For instance, in October 2022, OMNIVION launched a 5-megapixel image sensor for high-end security and professional cameras. These sensors feature near-infrared technology to capture good quality images in low-light conditions. Therefore, these image sensors are used in professional security cameras, such as those for industrial and factory applications, to capture night images in low power mode.

High Demand for CMOS Sensors Based on technology, the CMOS sensor segment accounted for 55.65% share of the market in 2022. The segment is likely to expand at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period. This is ascribed to low power consumption and low manufacturing cost of CMOS sensors in comparison to CCDs.

Advances in CMOS sensors have led to improvements in the performance of image sensors, which are anticipated to fuel market expansion during the forecast period.
