Market Overview

The compact camera module market was valued at USD 30.77 billion in 2020, and is expected to reach a value of USD 54.30 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 9.92% over 2021-2026. In the current scenario, being a part of the mobile manufacturing market supply chain is known to be a key factor for success in the CCM market. For instance, the Korean ecosystem has observed sustained development due to the presence of Samsung and LG.

  • The average selling price of the camera modules is continuously declining over the past recent year. Along with that, the need for fast innovations in the camera module is assisting for retaining the dominance with the critical players in the market.
  • The application of CCM in the automotive for advanced driving assistance and automotive electronics is driving the market for a compact camera module. The innovation in the CCM design has benefited to the rising application in automobiles.
  • Additionally, the demand for CMOS camera modules is increasing rapidly, as CMOS sensors offer various advantages over CCD sensors, such as low power consumption, faster frame rate, ease of manufacturing, and low cost. Moreover, the advancements in CMOS design, like miniaturization, make it possible to achieve better performance and quality of images even in low light conditions.
  • According to Sony Corporation, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a very minimal effect on the production of image sensors (particularly CMOS image sensors), including any impact on the procurement of materials. However, owing to the factors mentioned above, the company only expects to take a hit in terms of supply chain issues for smartphone manufacturers. This has been positive news for end users that rely on Sony chips, as they need not face any issues in procuring image sensors for their latest products

Scope of the Report

The scope of the study for the compact camera module has considered both fixed and automatic focus modules and their respective applications in a wide range of end-user verticals globally. A camera module comes with image pre-processing, a software package (or software development kit - SDK) for the operation and control of the module, APIs for the programming, all desired drivers, comprehensive documentation, and sometimes even a support hotline.

Competitive Landscape

With significant advancements in technology and an evolving supply chain, the market is consolidated. The present CCM market is mainly dominated by Asian players, mainly Japanese and Korean firms. The market is also witnessing an emergence of Chinese and Taiwanese firms as well.

  • In January 2020, Himax Imaging Inc. launched HM0360, the industry-first ultra-low power and low-latency back-Illuminated CMOS image sensor solution with autonomous modes of operations. It supports multiple power supply configurations with minimal passive components to enable a highly compact camera module design intelligent visual sensing applications, such as human presence detection and tracking, gaze detection, behavioral analysis, and pose estimation, for growing markets, like smart home, smart building, healthcare, smartphone, and AR/VR devices
  • In December 2020, ams AG introduced one of the world’s smallest digital camera modules. The company announced the pre-release of one of the smallest, lightest 100k pixel image sensors to deliver a digital video output suitable for use in mobile or wearable consumer devices, such as virtual reality (VR) headsets. This new NanEyeC image sensor is being supplied as a lensed, chip-scale module with a footprint of 1mm2 and a weight of about 1g. The NanEyeC camera is a fully featured image sensor supplied as a 1mm x 1mm lensed surface-mount module.
