Image Sensor Market Size (2022 - 2027)

The global Image Sensor Market was worth US$ 20.7 billion in 2021, and it is estimated to reach a valuation of US$ 34.4 billion by the end of 2027, expanding at an annual growth rate of 8.8% between 2022 and 2027.

The image sensor is an electronic device that converts an optical image into an electronic signal or indication. It is used in digital cameras and imaging devices in order to convert the light received on the camera or imaging devices into digital image. An image sensor is generally used in standalone or embedded digital cameras and imaging devices. When light strikes on the lens of a camera, the image sensor captures the light and converts it into an electric signal and then transmits it to the camera or the image device processor that transforms the electronic signal into a digital image.  There are two types of image sensor i.e. Charged Couple Device and Complementary metal oxide semiconductors. The image sensors offers high sensitivity in poor light conditions, possess high speed imaging capabilities including after  better daytime imaging performance and reduced likelihood of damage while viewing in bright conditions. Now a days, image sensors are significantly using for security and surveillance which is driving the demand of the image sensors in the market during the forecast period between 2022 and 2027.
