Market Overview

The global CMOS image sensors market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.22% over the forecast period (2022-2027). With the rising demand for high-definition image-capturing devices in various industries, CMOS technology has witnessed a high adoption rate, providing a faster shutter speed while delivering high-quality images.

  • The major factor driving the growth of the global CMOS image sensors market is the increasing demand for smartphones. The expanded utilization of cameras with image sensors in smartphones worldwide has helped the consumer electronics industry. For smartphone producers, the expanding popularity of cell phone photography has become a significant consideration in utilizing natural image sensors. These organizations produce smartphones with up to five cameras in a solitary gadget. CMOS image sensors can be found in various devices, including laptops, smartphones, and digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras.
  • Furthermore, with the integration of cameras into smartphones, image capturing has increased significantly, along with the growing smartphone penetration rate. These factors are set to drive the market for image sensors. With the rising demand for high-definition image-capturing devices in industries, CMOS technology has witnessed a high adoption rate.
  • The image sensor's dimensions also drive the demand for security cameras because the dimensions impact the security camera's field of view for a given lens and light sensitivity. As the CMOS image sensors basics offer faster speed with lower power consumption, most security camera systems use this image sensor, thus driving the demand.
  • Moreover, cameras with CCD sensors are widely used in most industrial applications. CCD sensors have been mass-produced for longer, making them more mature. They tend to have higher quality and more pixels. The demand for CCD sensors is constantly increasing as these sensors tend to be used in cameras that focus on high-quality images with lots of pixels and excellent light sensitivity. In contrast, the CMOS sensors traditionally have lower quality, lower resolution, and lower sensitivity.
  • The electronics and semiconductor industries suffered significantly due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases, businesses and manufacturing facilities across many countries closed down. This trend was predicted to continue in 2021. Additionally, a partial or total lockdown disrupted the world's supply chain, making it harder for manufacturers to reach customers. The entire production process suffered a setback. However, the global CMOS image sensors market was anticipated to advance with the growth of the medical and life sciences sector.
