Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Image Sensors Industry 2013-2018: Trend, Profit, and Forecast Analysis" report to their offering.
Annual revenue in the global image sensors industry revenue is forecast to reach an estimated $10.5 billion in 2017, growing at a CAGR of 4.0% over the next five years. Technological evolution and emerging applications of image sensors are the primary drivers of demand. The industry must maintain a balance among technology, price, and quality to meet its biggest challenge.
The industry comprises establishments that are primarily engaged in manufacturing of CCD (charge-coupled device) and CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) image sensors across all price ranges, used mostly in digital cameras, camera modules, and other imaging devices such as medical equipment and aerospace.
Maintaining the quality/price balance, along with high image quality at lower pixel size is the biggest challenge for the industry. To meet the challenge, companies are gradually moving toward a wafer level camera (WLC) approach.
This study provides an overview of the global image sensors industry, tracking two market segments of that industry across four geographic regions. Thus, eight segments of the global image sensors industry are tracked. The report studies manufacturers of CCD and CMOS image sensors, providing annual trend analysis that highlights market size, profit and cost structure for North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World. The report also provides a forecast, addressing market opportunities for each of these regions.
