PALO ALTO, Calif.–(EMWNews)–The market for image sensors demonstrates explosive growth both
technologically and economically. Image sensors are an emergent solution
for practically every automation-focused machine vision application.
While manufacturers capitalize on increasing sales volumes, they also
face the possibility of market saturation and manufacturing technology
limitations. New electronic fabrication processes, software
implementations, and new application fields will dictate the growth of
image sensor technology in the future.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.technicalinsights.frost.com),
Advances in Image Sensors, finds that image sensor technologies
will contribute to imaging requirements in applications such as digital
cameras, mobile phones, medical imaging equipment, automotive navigation
and driver assist as well as industrial machine vision applications.
Developments in manufacturing, hardware, and software will drive the
improvements in image sensor performance, which will lead to new
“The growing popularity and demand for
electronic devices incorporating digital camera technology is driving
innovations in image sensor technology,” notes
a Frost & Sullivan analyst. “The
application scope of image sensors is expanding beyond conventional uses
as improved flexibility and performance has resulted in digital imaging
technology replacing older film-based technology in the majority of
Innovations in image sensors currently focus on improving the
sensitivity, while decreasing the exposure times using pixels that seem
to be growing smaller and smaller. The end result will be image sensors
that produce images using a very small amount of light. On the other end
of the spectrum, manufacturers are developing larger sensors for
applications that require coverage of a greater optical range.
However, to ensure the dominance of image sensors, issues regarding
manufacturing limitations must be addressed. Image sensor manufacturers
will need to find new ways to differentiate themselves from competitors,
through hardware and software improvements.
“Aside from the consumer market, image sensor
technology will need to address future high performance imaging
requirements in applications such as medical, industrial, and aerospace,”
states a Frost & Sullivan analyst. “Overall,
the incorporation of image sensors is, and will continue to be, based
purely on performance and cost improvements over conventional
Manufacturers will need to continuously improve performance,
flexibility, and system integration capabilities while also bringing
down costs. An increase in the application scope of image sensors will
encourage the development of new technologies to improve their
performance characteristics and give manufacturers more opportunities to
differentiate themselves from competitors.
