Sony to Reduce Investment in CMOS Sensor Manufacturing Expansion

According to Digitimes Research, Sony reduces its equipment investment for CMOS sensors to JPY70 billion ($691.53M) in fiscal 2016, keeping its sensor production capacity at 70,000 12-inch equivalent wafers a month.

The CMOS sensors for automotive, security and medical applications are expected to reach over 27% CAGR over 2014-2020 compared to a 4% for the handset sector, the largest market for Sony's image sensors currently.

The global medical sensor market is expected to reach US$300M in 2020, an estimated CAGR of 31% during the 2014-2020. Sony aims to take up a 30% share of the global surgical endoscopy-use image sensor market by 2020.
