The image sensors are primarily categorized as CCD image sensors (area image sensor), linear image sensors and X-ray image sensors. The linear image sensor segmented is subdivided into CMOS image sensors, NMOS image sensors and InGaAs image sensors. The linear image sensor is the largest segment; accounting for about 84.2% of the U.S. images sensor market in 2011, largely due to CMOS image sensors, which accounts for more than 90% of the linear image sensor market in the same year.


The CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductors) image sensors segment dominates the U.S. linear image sensor market with more than 90% share. The cost of manufacturing CMOS-based image sensors is much cheaper than other competing technologies in the market. This low cost image sensor will have a good market in the industrial segment. The explosive growth and rapid development of CMOS image sensors are driven by the mobile phone market. Mobile devices with CMOS image sensors are expected to grow rapidly in the next 2 to 3 years in the U.S. market. This trend is expected to drive the growth of the emerging CMOS sensor markets of Latin America, India, Russia, and China.

     

The growth in image sensor market is driven by low cost CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductors) based image sensor technology. The use of CMOS in image sensor technology helps in providing better quality images as compared to CCD (Charge Coupled Device) technology. The cost of manufacturing CMOS-based image sensors is much cheaper than other competing technologies in the market. This low cost image sensor will have a good market in the industrial segment.


The applications of image sensor devices in the consumer market are driving the U.S. image sensor market. Image sensor devices with CMOS technology are better than the other competitive technologies in the market. With advancement in technology, consumers are shifting towards modularization and the use of advanced devices with image sensor enabled applications.


Continuously growing different varieties and forms of sensors used in handsets, tablets and motion-based image sensors applications are becoming more sophisticated and elegant; moving further than screen rotation. The blending of signals of various sensors is facilitating the faster, smoother and precise description of motion in mobile devices. This accuracy is well-matched for novel applications including gaming, augmented reality and motion-based web browsing.

Image sensor prices have shown a downward trend over the last few years and are expected to have a similar trend over the next few years. The average selling price per unit of overall image sensors in the U.S. stood at USD 3.9 in 2011. Average cost per unit for CMOS image sensors in the same year was USD 3.5 whereas average cost of CCD image sensors was USD 8.3 per unit.
