Albany, New York (PRWEB) July 30, 2014
According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research – “Image Sensors Market- The U.S. Industry Analysis Market Share, Trends and Forecast, 2011 - 2017” – the U.S. image sensors market was worth USD 2.0 billion in 2011 and is forecasted to reach USD 3.7 billion in 2017 at a CAGR of 11.1% from 2011 to 2017. The linear image sensors segment accounted for the largest share ( i.e., 84.2% ) of the U.S. image sensors market at USD 1.7 billion in 2011. The X-ray image sensors market segment will have the fastest revenue growth at a CAGR of 18.8% during 2011 - 2017. The U.S. CMOS image sensor shipment reached 464.0 million units in 2011, registering a growth of 27.6% over 2010.
Image sensors are used in the production fields for improving quality control and product yield of the different products. Image sensors can be one of two types of devices. It can either be a CCD, which is an analog device, or a CMOS chip, which is a type of active pixel sensor made using the CMOS. These sensors are integrated in various applications to help reduce the costs by knowing its key technology and market trends. Some of the common applications of image sensors include camcorders, video conferencing, biometrics, digital camera, optical mice, and virtual keyboards.

Image sensors are categorized into linear image sensors, CCD image sensors (area image sensor), and X-ray image sensors. In addition, the linear image sensors are further segmented into NMOS image sensors, CMOS image sensors, and InGaAs image sensors. Due to the large demand of CMOS image sensors accounting more than 90% of the linear image sensor market, the linear image sensors as a whole dominates the global market with the largest share of shipment and revenue.
A CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) is an integrated circuit design on a printed circuit board (PCB) that utilizes semiconductor technology. All types of circuit boards are made up of CMOS chips, N-type metal oxide semiconductor (NMOS) logic, or transistor-transistor logic (TTL) chips. Nowadays, many market players are gradually offering higher levels of integration by incorporating ISPs (integrated signal processing) and DSPs (digital signal processing) units. CMOS image sensors enable large scale integration also in the form of a single chip so that all camera functions are accommodated conveniently. This helps to eliminate the need for additional support packaging and assembly, in turn lowering the cost. An additional unique feature, like the multiple color filters that allows JPEG images conversion on the sensor, is also supporting the growth of this market.

In the world of image sensors, when it comes to image quality and versatility, bigger imaging devices are even better. In addition, low power and increasing integration operations have opened new application segments for image sensors. Owing to faster adoption and growing technological advancement of modern mobile technology, the market for mobile phones is inching towards 100%. Today, mobile phone manufacturers have spurred the demand for high resolution imaging technology via handheld smartphones. Mobile manufacturers are also introducing a wide array of imaging-enabled products that are available at low power, low cost, high performance, and small size.
Availability of different forms of sensors that are used in tablets, handsets, and motion-based image sensors applications are increasing its popularity and becoming more elegant and sophisticated in the market. Hand-held devices with these facilities have accuracy that is well-matched for novel applications, including augmented reality, gaming, and motion-based web browsing. All these are significant factors playing an important role in the growth of the U.S. image sensors market.
