CMOS Camera Market

2019 Analysis and Review of CMOS Camera Market by Camera Type - Stereo Vision CMOS Cameras, Low-light CMOC Cameras, Low-noise CMOS Cameras, HD CMOS Cameras, and Ultra-HD CMOS Cameras for 2019-2029

Security & Surveillance Register Greater Demand Growth

Security & surveillance has been a key application area of CMOS cameras. As conventional cameras are cost-prohibitive, inefficient, and large in size, their applicability has been limited to military and government applications. CMOS cameras, owing to their cost-containment, compact size, and low power consumption attributes, are finding immense utilization in civilian security applications. By 2029, CMOS camera manufacturers would reap around US$ 4 Bn from security & surveillance applications. Further, they are unpacking new revenue lines in the consumer electronics sector.

APEJ Market the Fastest-growing

North America, at present, captures over one-third of overall value of the global CMOS camera market. The U.S. continues the most lucrative opportunities in the global landscape. This study reveals that, by 2029, the value share of North America will slide gradually. Driven by surging investments in security & surveillance, and rising penetration of smart consumer electronics, Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) is offering a conducive environment for CMOS camera manufacturers.

Further, the regional market will outpace North America’s market towards the end of the projection period. Players in APEJ are focusing on offering cameras with enhanced resolution, frame rate, pixel size, and sensor format.

Market Players Must Capitalize on Healthcare Industry

The healthcare industry is aggressively embracing fast image sensor technology. Introduction of power-efficient and compact CMOS cameras are becoming an integral component in minimally-invasive medical devices such as wireless capsules for gastrointestinal tract observation. Although CMOS cameras represent a meagre fraction of the larger system in terms of cost and size, their functionality is crucial in the entire system.

For instance, wireless image sensor capsules, which after consumption, continually transmit a video signal during their travel inside the body. Such increasing use cases in the healthcare sector of wireless CMOS cameras is attracting huge attention of market players.

How Growth will Unfold

CMOS cameras with pixel density of less than 5 megapixels (MP) will continue to capture the attention of market players over the decade ahead. These 5 MP CMOS cameras are increasingly leveraged in the automotive industry. As innovations prevail in machine vision, extended automotive use cases, including advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), will offer new growth avenues for these CMOS cameras.  5-10 MP CMOS cameras are also reflecting value-capture prospects; however, they are likely to lose their revenue share to CMOS cameras with a pixel density over 20 MP, over the years to come.
