Automotive Camera Sensor Market to Generate Revenue Worth $5,847.3 Million by 2030

  • Published: February 2020

The global automotive camera sensor market reached $1,869.4 million in 2019. Further, the market is expected to generate $5,847.3 million revenue in 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 11.0%, during the forecast period (2020–2030). Charge-coupled device (CCD) camera sensors were the largest category during the historical period (2014–2019), based on type.

During the forecast period, complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) camera sensors are expected to be the fastest growing category in the automotive camera sensor market. CMOS sensors are smaller in size, consume lesser power, and are much easier to integrate in the vehicles, which is expected to propel the growth of the category.

Entry of Technology Giants is a Major Trend in the Market

One of the major trends being witnessed in the automotive camera sensor market is the entry of many major tech players. The market exhibits a high growth potential in the coming years, with the advancements and increasing adoption of autonomous vehicles, which is encouraging many renowned players in the tech industry to invest in the automotive sensors market. For instance, in January 2020, Sony Corp. announced that it would begin the development of autonomous cars, by developing different sensing and safety technologies (including camera sensors) for these vehicles.

Increasing Installation of ADAS Features in Vehicles is a Major Driver for the Market

Many countries across the world are mandating the implementation of different advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) features in vehicles, to ensure enhanced safety. Many ADAS features, such as lane departure warning (LDW), traffic sign recognition (TSR), surround view, park assist, and road vulnerability detection, are highly reliant on camera sensors. Thus, with the growing adoption of vehicles with different levels of autonomy, the demand for camera sensors are expected to surge, thereby propelling the growth of the automotive camera sensor market.
