Proliferation of Demand for Sensor Technologies by OEMs Spurs Growth in Image Detection Sensor Market

Image detection sensors are utilized in diverse array of applications, including spectrometers, machine vision cameras, microscopy, distance measurements, and range of automotive applications. Broadly, two types of sensors—CMOS and CCD—have attracted copious attention among device manufacturers and OEMs in image detection sensor market. While, seemingly there is no clear winner, the choice among the two sensor technologies depends on the required functionality, cost concerns, and fine lines that shape the technical-tradeoffs. For instance, image detection sensor based on CMOS are typically used commercially in consumer devices. High-volume demands come from smartphones and machine vision applications. These applications are notably characterized by next-gen CMOS imager fabrication processes. Over the years, advancements in the manufacturing technologies and automation have enabled companies roll out sensors with remarkably high speed and sensitivity. Over the years, the growing trend of easy-to-use driver circuits for OEMs in automotive industry has spurred new prospects in the image detection sensor market. The growth is being fuelled by the rise in demand for various types of image detection sensors in analytical instrumentation and spectroscopy applications. Growing demand for built-in CMOS IC is also expected to be a promising trend for industry players in the market. Ongoing research in CNN-based shadow detection in images are opening new applications such as in intelligence surveillance camera systems.

The aftermath of COVID-19 crisis has led to large-scale changes in business models and brought an air of uncertainty to numerous elements. In the second quarter 2020 and onward, the pandemic-led restrictions triggered numerous companies to alter the frameworks underlying product portfolios, capital expenditures (capex), production development cycle decisions, and vendors. The rise in work-from-home trends for both public and private sector organization in second quarter led major players to make overhauls related to production and supply. The demand for smart home computing devices and consumer devices raised their hopes on demand forecasts, bringing forth a scenario of optimism for manufacturers of sensors.
