In-Stat: 3D Mobile Devices to Increase Demand for Image Sensors 130% by 2015

Market Wire: "The image sensor segment stands to gain the most from the use of 3D technology in mobile devices, because unlike the processor or the display, true 3D requires at least two image sensors, one for each imaging solution," says Jim McGregor, In-Stat's Chief Technology Strategist. "That means four image sensors, two front facing and two rear facing, are required for a full 3D experience. Several mobile devices with four image sensors have already been introduced and many more are slated for introduction throughout 2011 and 2012."

In-Stat findings include:
  • Total annual shipments of 3D mobile devices will surpass 148 million units in 2015.
  • Nearly 30% of all handheld game consoles will be 3D by 2015.
  • In 2011, handheld game consoles will be the first 3D-enabled mobile device to surpass 1 million units annually.
  • By 2014, 18% of all tablets will be 3D.
  • Media consumption devices including handheld game consoles, smartphones, and tablets will drive demand for image sensors over 130% by 2015
