Global Computational Photography Market Size & Growth (2020 – 2025)

The global computational photography market was estimated to be worth $ 10.7 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach $ 29.0 billion by 2025, with a compound annual growth rate of 22.0% during the outlook period 2020 to 2025.

Computational photography mainly refers to the capturing of digital images and applying several processing techniques in the place of optical processes. Computational photography is done using digital cameras and especially smartphones that include automatic settings to improve shooting capabilities. It uses image processing algorithms to enhance images by reducing motion blur, and also adds simulated depth of field and color refinement, contrast, and light range. High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging with panoramas is the popular computational photography that optimally combines information from multiple images exposed differently from overlaid and underexposed images. The use of computational photography has increased due to its advantages as it provides better machine vision systems at lower cost, improves images with better colors, better contrast and better lighting techniques. For example, in 2018 Xiaomi launched the Xiaomi Mi 8 smartphone which provides computer photographs. This smartphone uses machine learning with artificial intelligence techniques to enhance photos and provide a 20-megapixel shutter button that lets you take selfies with AI.

In the same way that smartphone cameras rely on computational photography to adjust images despite the small physical lenses of a smartphone camera, it can enhance images of visually impaired people with Augmented Reality (AR). In July 2019, Nvidia Corporation launched its prescription smart glasses that make use of AR reality to enhance the vision of a person.

The increasing adoption of Image Fusion technique to achieve high quality image is driving the market. As image fusion techniques have developed rapidly in various types of applications in recent years, methods which can objectively, systematically and quantitatively assess or assess the performance of different fusion technologies have been recognized as an urgent need. The advancements in the night color image is becoming significant in both computational photography and computer vision.

Recent Developments:

April 2020: Xiaomi announced the integration of a 144-megapixel camera phone, where the predecessors of these two phones, Mi 10 Pro and Mi CC9 Pro, had 108-megapixel cameras. Phones use computational photography and prioritize even more to improve their computational photography capabilities.

In October 2015, Google acquired Digisfera, a start-up specializing in panoramic images. This acquisition aimed to improve the customer experience using Street View technology developed by Google for Google Maps, using 360-degree photography.

Impact of Covid-19 on Computational Photography Market:

With the effect of the COVID-19 impact, the production of smartphones for the first half of 2020 is expected to decrease significantly. The coronavirus outbreak poses a prominent threat to the mobile phone business, with major impact on manufacturing and overall sales. Globally, semiconductor revenue is expected to decline by nearly 2-3% in 2020. In addition, it has disrupted the supply chain with some smartphone brands such as Sony, Samsung, which announced the Snapdragon 865 AI integration enabled by Qualcomm (it has a camera architecture that should advance computational photography). This causes a delay in production, as it is currently unpredictable when the pandemic is overcome.

Market Growth and Trends:

Android smartphone to witness significant market growth in the coming years

  • Photography using mobile phones has expanded drastically from VGA cameras to higher megapixel cameras. In recent years, smartphone camera technology has grown exponentially. Currently, smartphone manufacturers are talking about artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning that will be implemented on their phones. According to Morgan Stanley, with the increase in the sales reach of the Android smartphone in the coming years, the deployment of digital photography in more brands is highly predictable.
  • Qualcomm Spectra ISP technology integrated digital photography in smartphone to take photos to its next level. The next round of computational photography added to machine learning will be visible in both photos and videos.
  • At the Snapdragon Tech Summit in 2019, Qualcomm demonstrated a Snapdragon 865 AI compatible "image segmentation" feature with Morpho software.
  • Google Pixel 4 is a latest example of implementation of computational photography in smartphone cameras. Google has introduced Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, a new version of its popular smartphone, available in two screen sizes. While the devices include new hardware features such as an additional camera lens and infrared facial scanner to unlock the phone, Google has emphasized the use of phones by computer photography, which automatically deals with images to make them. more professionals.
  • These new features provide a way to photograph the night sky and capture images of the stars. By adding the additional lens, Google created a software feature called Super Res Zoom, which allows users to get closer to images without losing much detail. Most important is the functionality of Android Night Sight in computational photography.

Market Drivers and Limitations:

The growing trends in the exchange of videos and images along with the increasing use of social networks are the main growth engine of the global computational photography market. Today's people tend to stay connected globally, through social media apps, like What Sapp, Facebook. All this has led to the integration of high-end cameras in smart phones. Additionally, smartphone penetration has increased globally, further driving the adoption of high-end smartphones with advanced cameras.

Rapid advances in technology have also led to many developments in terms of image processing in which people can capture and generate high-quality images, manipulate them using various applications, and share them at their convenience. With increasing disposable income and improving living standards, the digital photography market is expected to grow exponentially in the near future.

However, less awareness and high costs related to computer photography techniques can slow the growth of the global computational photography market in underdeveloped regions.

Market Segmentation:

The global digital photography market is segmented by application and region.

According to the application, the global market for computational photography can be segmented into smartphone cameras, independent cameras, and machine vision. Of these, smartphones accounted for a significant portion of the global market and are likely to witness considerable CAGR in the coming years.

Geographical Analysis:
Regionally, the global computational photography market can be segmented into North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (MEA), and Asia-Pacific.

In the developed economies of North America and Western Europe, emphasis is placed on innovations due to increased disposable income and the strong presence of suppliers. As a result, North America has the largest revenue contribution to the computational photography market. The APAC region is also expected to experience a significant growth rate for the worldwide market due to the large number of smartphone manufacturers in the region.
