Industry Insights

The global consumer electronic sensors market size is projected to account for over USD 34 billion, by the end of 2022. Factors such as increasing spending in R&D, growing use of wearable technology, the rising application of various electronic devices such as smartphones, PCs, gaming consoles among others, and the development of new products are projected to fuel the growth of the market over the estimated duration. Also, lower power intake and small size are likely to provide an edge to the players working in a highly competitive market.

Increasing demand for electronic devices having features such as indoor navigation and motion stabilization is predicted to augment the product demand. Increasing concern for surveillance and security along with increasing gaming and entertainment applications may offer growth prospects to the industry players. The growing preference for multimedia games is anticipated to boost the demand for gyroscope and motion sensors, thereby, resulting in, augmenting the product demand in the upcoming years.

Germany consumer electronic sensors market

Rising demand for Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS) in home appliances, entertainment, and communication is predicted to bode well for the growth of the consumer electronic sensors market. They are used especially in tablets and smartphones owing to their small size and improved efficiency. They are capable of enhancing controls, visual, interface experience, communication, and sound. Factors such as price sensitivity among consumers and dearth of product variation might adversely impact the market growth in the upcoming years.

Application Insights

Communication is anticipated to remain the leading category over the estimated duration due to extensive demand for smartphones and PDA. The rising demand for various gaming equipment is projected to augment the growth of entertainment applications. Consumers are increasingly preferring smart characteristics in dishwashers, washing machines, air-conditioners, and cooking, thereby, resulting in the growing demand for various sensors in these devices. The entertainment division occupied more than15% revenue share in 2014.

The various application areas of the product are predicted to foresee evolution over the forecast duration, with industry players focusing on continuous product innovation. For example, Samsung in 2014, has equipped its Note 4 with UV sensors for health and environmental applications. It also embedded features of humidity and pulse sensing in Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S5 models, respectively.

Product Insights

The image sensors segment is projected to maintain its lead over the forecast years owing to rising demand for tablets and mobiles. The temperature and motion segment is widely used in several home appliances for excellent energy applications and in mobiles to provide an excellent user interface.

Pressure sensors are predicted to ascend with a CAGR of 9.5% over the forecast duration. These sensors are widely used in GPS systems, home appliances, gaming consoles, and mobile phones. For example, STMicroelectronics launched LPS331AP that enables improved GPS in 3D indoor locating and portable devices. 

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific is expected to remain the largest market over the forecast years owing to the rising demand for consumer electronics in India and China. Increasing per capita income and rising smartphone users’ population are predicted to remain favorable factors. Smartphones are constantly embedded with innovative features to provide a user-friendly experience. For example, secondary and primary cameras are used to permit video calling, screen recording, slow motion, and other related services.

The insertion of cameras in palmtops is also anticipated to augment the regional market growth. Growing trends of posting pictures across various social media applications and increasing first-time purchasers of cameras are predicted to further boost the demand in the Asia Pacific. On the other hand, North American customers, prefer exchanging their electronic devices for technologically innovative products.

Consumer Electronic Sensors Market Share Insights

Synaptic, Aptina Imaging, Bosch, Panasonic Corporation, Toshiba Corporation, STMicroelectronics, Sony Corporation, and Samsung Electronics are the key players in the global market. The industry players are engaged in increasing partnerships and collaborations to strengthen their market presence. For example, an Austrian-based company named AMS in 2015, took over ASIC, a German company, to bolster its product range. Additionally, NXP Semiconductors N.V. in March 2015, signed a merger agreement with Freescale Semiconductor Inc. for an amount of USD 40 billion to leverage on the growing avenues created by surging demand for processing, security, and connectivity.

Sony Corporation in 2015, announced to spend on mounting the manufacturing capacity of CMOS photosensors ranging between 60,000 wafers per month to 85,000 wafers per month. The same company also launched its brand new A&R 11 camera with changeable lenses, in June 2015. Further, Samsung Electronics, in 2013, introduced ISOCELL with innovative characteristics such as higher color intensity and light sensitivity in poor lightings too.
