Yole on ISP and Vision Processor Trends

Yole Developpement report "Image Signal Processor and Vision Processor Market and Technology Trends 2019" tells:

"AI has completely disrupted hardware in vision systems, and has had an impact on entire segments, as Mobileye has in automotive, for example. Image analysis adds a lot of value. Image sensor builders are therefore increasingly interested in integrating a software layer to their system in order to capture it. Today, image sensors must go beyond taking images – they must be able to analyze them.

However, to run these types of software, high power computing and memory are necessary, which led to the creation and development of vision processors. The ISP market offers a steady compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2018 to 2024 of 3%, making the total market worth $4.2B in 2024. Meanwhile, the vision processor market is exploding, with a 18% CAGR from 2018 to 2024, making the market worth $14.5B in 2024!

It is important to note that historical players have struggled to react to AI’s arrival. That has allowed other companies to get into the business, including smartphone companies like Apple and Huawei, startups like Mobileye, and companies in other segments, like NVIDIA in automotive applications. However, because the trend is towards low-power, low-consumption, always-on computing hardware, the historical players are coming back into the game.

  1. What constitutes an "ISP" in this report? Isn't ISP in mobile is integrated on the SoC w/ the vision processor. Why separate them in volume?
