“Increasing trends of multiple camera-based smartphones to drive camera modules market”
The camera modules market size is projected to grow from USD 31.5 billion in 2020 to USD 44.6 billion by 2025, recording a CAGR of 7.2%. Rising public safety and security concerns led to the adoption of surveillance cameras, technological advancements in components of camera modules for its integration in devices, and rising demand for ToF cameras in smartphones are driving the growth of the camera modules industry. However, constraints such as high cost of multi-camera systems deployment in vehicles may hinder the market growth.
“Consumer electronics to be largest market for camera modules throughout forecast period”
Consumer electronics is one of the highly competitive industries which observes rapid technological advancements due to continuous change in consumer demands. Smartphones derive significantly higher market for camera modules in consumer electronics applications due to the increasing trend of multiple camera smartphones. To improve functionality and quality of images produced by smartphones and rising trends of front cameras, OEMs are shifting from single rear cameras to dual, triple, and quad-camera designs, resulting in increasing adoption of an average number of camera modules per smartphone. For instance, in September 2019, Apple launched a new range of iPhones, including iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. iPhone 11 features dual camera, each having 12 MP resolution while iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone Pro Max feature triple cameras, each with 12 MP resolution. Other leading smartphone OEMs such as Samsung, Xiaomi, and Huawei are introducing smartphones featuring multiple cameras. Xiaomi is already set to introduce Mi Note 10 in early 2020 with a 108 MP rear camera among 4 other rear cameras. These developments are expected to play an important role in the growth of the camera modules market during the forecast period.
