The CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) image sensor market is projected to reach US$17.919 billion by 2024 from US$11.764 billion in 2018 with a CAGR of 8.59%. CMOS image sensors utilize photodiodes to convert light into electrical signal output. The demand for CMOS image sensors is projected to grow owing to the growing demand for consumer electronics and digital cameras around the globe. Furthermore, their cheaper costs and faster processing has also resulted in increased adoption of CMOS sensors in comparison to their substitute CCD sensors. Further advancements in technology, coupled with the push towards the demand for higher image resolutions will further amplify the development of these sensors, thus pushing its demand even further. The consumer electronics market will see substantial growth in the market during the forecast period owing to rising applications of this sensor in devices like mobile phones, and tablets. The wide usage of CMOS image sensors in digital cameras is also one of the main drivers behind the boom in the consumer electronics segment of the CMOS image sensor market. Other segments such as security and surveillance and automotive are also projected to hold a substantial share due to the increasing usage of CMOS sensors for applications such as CCTV and ADAS.
