According to a new market research report Camera Modules Market by Component (Image Sensor, Lens Module), Process (Flip-Chip), Pixel, Application (Consumer Electronics, Security & Surveillance, Automotive, Aerospace & Defense, Industrial), and Geography - Global Forecast to 2020”, the total camera modules market is expected to reach USD 36.95 Billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 10.8% between 2015 and 2020.


In today’s era of technology, the camera modules market is expanding from its traditional digital camera applications into various other applications such as security, automotive, medical, and others. The growth of the camera modules market is mainly driven by the exponential growth in the consumer electronics application, especially the growing demand for devices such as cameras, smartphones, and tablets. Cameras have become one of the important parameters for mobile device manufacturers as the purchasing decision of end users depends on the type of camera and pixel size of the camera in the mobile phone. Top companies such as Samsung, Apple, and LG are expanding rapidly in the smartphones and tablets market as the mobile imaging in these devices is widely adopted by end users. Moreover, the growing market for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) in the automotive sector is boosting the demand for image sensors, and in turn, for camera modules. ADAS make use of image sensors to provide safety features such as parking assistance, lane-departure warning, and collision avoidance systems. Machine vision is also one of the applications where camera modules are increasingly being used for flaw detection, positioning, identification, verification, and measurement of the products in various industries.
