Sony says it can’t produce enough camera sensors

sony cant produce enough camera sensors

Despite having a new factory and a production facility that runs 24 hours a day, Sony can’t produce enough image sensors to meet demands. The explosion in the number of camera modules in smartphones is triggering a shortage. Sony, the world’s number 1 in CMOS sensor production, is struggling to fulfill its orders.

Sony Semiconductor Division Chief Terushi Shimizu says that Sony controls more than 50% of the world market (or even more if we limit ourselves to high-end sensors) but despite massive investments, “We have to apologize to our customers because we can’t produce enough.”

Sony invested 2.29 billion euros to produce camera sensors
