iSupply: CCDs Drop to Less than 10% of Image Sensor Market

According to iSupply press release, of the total 1.7 billion units forecast for the 2010 image sensor market, CCDs will account for a roughly 9.8% share, down from 11.4% in 2009. And while the decrease in unit share is slight, the trend appears to be irreversible, with CCD sensors to make up only 4.7 percent of the market by 2014.

In contrast, the CMOS image sensor market will expand its unit share of the market to 90.2 percent this year, up from 88.5 percent in 2009. The migration to CMOS from CCD will continue unabated for point-and-shoot cameras. By next year, the proportion of point-and-shoot models using CMOS will climb to 24 percent, up from 14 percent in 2009. The shift to CMOS among DSLR cameras is occurring even much faster: By 2014, fully 99 percent of DSLR models will be based on CMOS sensors.

Digitimes compiled a nice chart based on iSupply data:
