Outlook for the Mobile Phone CMOS Image Sensor Market and Supply Chain

Abstract

It is anticipated that global mobile phone market volume will reach around 1.78 billion units in 2012, 1.48 billion of which will be camera phones. Camera phones' share of the global mobile phone market is estimated to stand at 83.2% in 2012 and further to 84.8% in 2013 as the camera phone market volume is expected to see a 10.5% year-on-year growth in 2013 to 1.63 billion units. It is observed that mobile phone vendors have stretched the battlefield from general specs to camera alone. This reports profiles the development trends of CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor) image sensors used in camera phones, product strategies of corresponding suppliers, and provides insight into future trends of mobile phone CMOS image sensors.
