Depth Sensing Market Size, Trends & Growth (2021 - 2026)

Depth sensing technology is a process that is implemented to calculate the distance to an object. With the help of this depth sensing technology, any target that can be a line, points, and even a collection of points that make up an area can be easily measured. 3D depth sensors, also called 3D cameras or 3D scanners, are the devices used to generate depth information from a certain scene by calculating the possible distance in between the sensor and the objects ahead it. Until now, this technology has been used mainly for industrial applications, but many smartphone companies like Apple are about to bring it to the mainstream market, which will be a potential factor to drive significant changes in the market devices in your daily life. The increasing adoption of dual camera smartphones and the acceleration of the smartphone market are expected to drive the depth sensing market.

The global depth sensor market is determined to grow with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.64% over the forecast period from 2021 to 2026. The depth sensing process involves measuring the distance of an object from a particular point of view using depth sensors. Depth detection is done using two types of methods which include passive methods and active methods. Stereo vision is used in the passive depth sensing method, while time of flight (ToF) and structured light are used in the active depth sensing method. Structured light offers the best depth accuracy performance; however, it has the shortest depth detection range, while the ToF depth detection range depends on the emitting power of the light source. The growing demand for depth sensors in applications such as virtual and augmented reality, gesture control, and facial recognition is driving the growth of depth sensing around the world.

Recent Developments:

  • Infineon Technologies AG and PMD Technologies have joined forces to build up another 3D profundity sensor that will furnish cell phones and different gadgets with a more exact approach to plan conditions for applications, for example, gaming, internet business and other vivid encounters.
  • Stereolabs were delighted to announce the release of ZED SDK 1.0! This update brings 6-DoF position tracking to VR and robotics, real-time 3D mapping with ZEDfu, new Wide VGA resolution, and more.
  • Qualcomm Technologies presents another Image Signal Processor (ISP) and a scope of camera modules to quicken profundity location on cell phones, XR headsets and more.
  • Intel dispatched RealSense ID, a facial acknowledgment arrangement dependent on its RealSense profundity detecting innovation (by means of Gizmodo). RealSense started out as a Kinect-style camera for contactless interaction, but RealSense ID appears to be Intel's attempt to first reposition its camera activity towards secure facial recognition on the device, while potentially putting the business in the crossfire of the controversy.

Drivers and Restraints of Depth Sensing Market:


The global depth sensing market is developing at a significant rate due to factors such as the increase in the use of depth sensing technology in gaming applications and due to the increasing need to improve security and surveillance systems among users. Additionally, the surge in the application of depth sensing techniques in smartphones to enable face detection, recognition and authentication is anticipated to drive the demand for depth sensing during the outlook period.


However, the high cost of depth sensors and the need for a perfect angle for stereo depth sensing technology are factors affecting market growth and are likely to hamper the global depth sensing market for years to come.

Depth Sensing Market Segmentation:

By Components

  • Camera/Lens Module
  • Sensor
  • Illuminator

The sensor segment is foreseen to record the highest CAGR during the projection period. The sensor often comprises a monochrome CMOS sensor and an infrared projector that help create 3D images. The sensor can determine the depth of the subject by processing the point shift and creates a depth map. This component of the depth transducer has the most variation in terms of capacity and is a crucial factor to identify the quality of a depth transducer, as it plays an important role in the accuracy of the final product.

By Type

  • Active Depth Sensing
  • Passive Depth Sensing

The active depth sensing segment is supposed to grow at a rapid rate during the projection period due to the increasing demand for accurate depth calculations in different end-use industries such as industrial, consumer electronics and automobiles.

By Technology

  • Stereo Vision
  • Structured Light
  • Time Of Flight
