Potential Impact of COVID-19 on Image Sensors Market

A new Transparency Market Research report states that the U.S. image sensors market stood at US$2.0 bn in 2011 and is anticipated to reach US$3.7 bn in 2017. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 11.10 % from 2011 to 2017. The title of the report is “Image Sensors Market – The U.S. Industry Analysis Market Share, Trends and Forecast, 2011 – 2017.”

According to the report, the image sensors market in the U.S. is poised to grow owing to the economic cost of complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors and the rapid development of the consumer market for image sensor devices. In addition, factors such as the development and swift growth of the market for CMOS image sensor devices and developments in their power and efficiency are also having a positive impact on the growth of the market for image sensors in the U.S.

Furthermore, the development of the market for multimedia-enabled devices within the U.S. is also a prime factor stimulating the growth of the market. The prime opportunities seen in the market include 3G implementation in video supportive mobile devices, rising new product introductions, and expansion of the image sensors market in a number of countries. On the other hand, factors such as the dependence of device manufacturing expenses on labor expenses and some environment issues associated with the use of image sensors may inhibit the growth of the market within the U.S. in the coming years.
