Technavio Global Image Sensor Market Report

While many different companies published image sensor market reports recently, a title of the most entertaining one goes to "Global Image Sensors Market 2009-2013" published by Technavio, in my opinion anyway. Here are some interesting quotes from the Technavio announcement:

"The major growth drivers include:

- Rising demand for digital cameras, which are increasingly using image sensors

"Complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors have not been able to provide great image quality as compared to others like (Charged-Coupled Device) CCD image sensor. Temporary noise problem, where, CMOS image sensors suffer from higher noise due to the additional pixels, is another important deterrent."

Another Technavio PR has a nice definition of the image sensor market:

"For the purpose of this report, the Global Image Sensors market refers to an integrated chip that contains a processor core, memory, programmable input/output ports and timers."

A single-user license costs $1,500 for those willing to pay for it. By the way, Technavio forecasts the image sensors market to grow at a CAGR of 11.8 percent, with APAC region witnessing highest growth rate, according to Business Wire.


  1. When I followed the link from Google Alerts I thought it was a hoax or a joke.

  2. I needed a good laugh today. Thank you.

  3. indeed, it's strange the used language ...

  4. Digital cameras use image sensors? Wow, thanks. Can I send you a check for the $1500?
