CMOS Image Sensor Market is Considered as One of the Rapidly Growing Dynamic Markets

CMOS Image Sensor Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast 2015 - 2021
CMOS (Complementary metal oxide semiconductor) image sensor is an opto-electronic device used
for converting incident photon flux to digital signals. In recent years due to the growing demand for
small high definition (HD) camcorders, there has been significant development in CMOS image
sensors market. These sensors provide the benefit of low power consumption and high speed
imaging capabilities. CMOS sensors are more capable processing at high speed compared to other
sensors such as CCD (charged couple device).
Image sensors have many applications including fault detection, entertainment, medical application
and others. With advancement in technology applications are increasing at a high rate. Imaging
technologies are moved toward digitization which has led to the development of CMOS and CCD
