August, 2019

" The global CMOS image sensor market is expected to witness a CAGR of above 8.4% during the forecast period 2019–2025 "

Bangalore, India, September 06, 2019: With its recently published study “Global CMOS Image Sensor Market – Drivers, Restraints, Opportunities, Trends, and Forecast up to 2025”, Infoholic Research forecasts that the global market for CMOS image sensor is entering a new growth phase owing to increasing demand for CMOS image sensor for applications such as automotive, medical imaging, automated quality control, smart home, medical imaging, virtual reality, and others.

Typically, CCD and CMOS are two main types of image sensors available in the market. CCD is the matured technology which has been used for more than 30 years. Initially, CCD was the preferred image sensing technology which offered better image quality than CIS based devices. Significant investment in R&D and advancement in design techniques and the semiconductor manufacturing process in the past decade has led to significant improvements in CMOS image sensor performance and image quality. Since then, use cases of CMOS based image sensing technology has drastically expanded across various imaging applications. Today, CMOS image sensor has become an electronic eye of many applications that requires translation of light into digital information.
