Global Image Sensors Market Looks Forward to Magnanimous Growth: Likely to Grow at a CAGR of 8.4% by 2027

Published | 26 October 2021

The global image sensor market is growing at a high CAGR because of its wide application in manufacturing various consumer electronics and other devices such as smartphones, security and surveillance cameras, medical imaging equipment, etc…

A recent study conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm, BlueWeave Consulting, revealed that the global image sensor market was worth USD 18.7 billion in the year 2020. According to the study, the market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 8.4%, earning revenue of around USD 32.8 billion by 2027. Growing demand for smartphones and other consumer electronic products drives the global image sensor market. The most important component in producing sharp, high-resolution photos is the image sensor. As a result, smartphone manufacturers are investing in advanced image sensors for their smartphones. Also propelling the growth of the global image sensors market is the increasing use of image sensors in the healthcare and automotive industries.

Growing Demand for Consumer Electronic Products is Favoring the Global Image Sensor Market

Based on their spectrum, image sensors are categorized into visible spectrum and non-visible spectrum. The visible spectrum dominates the market due to its adamant application in consumer electronic products such as smartphones and tablets. With the increasing trend of smartphone photography and consumers' growing interest in producing high-quality images, demand for visible spectrum image sensors is rising globally. On the other hand, the non-visible spectrum is expected to grow rapidly due to its use in the security, surveillance, and defense sectors, which produce images in low light conditions.

Area Image Sensors Are Anticipated to Witness Highest CAGR During the Forecast Period

Based on array types, the global image sensor market is segmented into linear image sensors and area image sensors. Linear image sensors hold the largest market share because they are used in various electronic devices for image processing, such as cash machines, barcode readers, line scan cameras, image scanners, and copy machines. However, the area image sensors are anticipated to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growing application of image sensors in the automotive industry for making camera-enabled systems for automatic emergency braking, autonomous driving, etc., is propelling the growth of area image sensors in the market.
