Image sensor is a device used to convert the optical image projected by lens into an electrical signal, and is commonly used in imaging devices such as digital cameras & varied camera modules. Motion sensors have witnessed high demand in Asia-Pacific (APAC) region owing to transition of technology from analog to digital in various devices using sensors.
CMOS (metaloxidesemiconductor) has emerged as the latest technology for the design of advanced image sensors as this can capture the images digitally more effectively, thus driving the growth of the market. The growth of the image sensor market in Asia Pacific region is driven by various applications in making consumer electronics coupled with the growing preference of high resolution camera enabled mobile phones. Furthermore, making low cost image sensors using CMOS technology with lower power consumption has largely replaced CCD. The declining demand of still cameras and high cost associated with the maintenance of image sensors are the key restraining factors.
