The Asia-Pacific region has emerged as the largest market for image sensors in 2018, with a market share of 34.72%. The domination of the APAC region in the Image Sensors market can be attributed to growing adoption of Advanced Driver Assistant Systems (ADAS) in automobiles. Governmental regulations in terms of vehicle safety in economically advanced countries coupled with consumer demand for active safety features are poised to impact the image sensors market positively. In China, the number of camera installations accounted for over six million units in 2017, which is anticipated to increase to 30 million units by 2021. Trends such as these present excellent growth opportunities for the automotive image sensors market in the APAC region. Additionally, the increasing shift to autonomous vehicles will further propel the image sensors market. A fully autonomous driving vehicle should have more than 25 on-board image sensors for constant monitoring of potential obstacles and traffic.  A demand of one million vehicles each year is anticipated by 2025 which will significantly drive the image sensors market. 

Image Sensors Market Growth Drivers
  • Medical Imaging 
Medical diagnostics is a surging application field for image sensors. Growing scope for imaging diagnostics in the medical industry is anticipated to improve the market for medical image sensors, which is mainly driven by applications of image sensors in endoscopy and X-ray imaging. Emerging endoscopy solutions such as capsule endoscopy and disposable endoscopes are poised to fuel growth of the market. An increase in therapeutically treated ailments such as cancer and gastrointestinal diseases coupled with growing patient preference for minimal abrasive surgeries are boosting endoscopy applications globally. 
  • Dual and Triple Cameras in Smartphones
Additionally, smartphones are driving the market growth with growing adoption of dual, triple and quadruple camera set ups. Penetration of dual camera smartphones rose from 3% in July 2016 to 42% in July 2018. Owing to excessive competition amongst market players, companies are forced to tinker with traditional camera setups and grab consumer attention with new features and technological developments, which is leading to an increase in the number of image sensors used in smartphones. 
  • R&D Investments/Funding
MultiVu in May 2019 announced that they have received $7m as seed funding for development of 3D imaging solutions using a single image sensor instead of the usual practice of two sensors. The company believes that the project will make 3D imaging solutions more affordable. 
In October 2018, Sony announced plans to invest $5.3 billion into production of image sensors over three years through fiscal 2020, and position itself for the rise of technologies such as autonomous driving and Internet of Things.
