In the first half of 2020, the top three suppliers received almost 85% of all revenue in the global market of image sensors for smartphones. The distribution of the market is clearly shown in the chart.
“The dynamics on the image sensor market in the first half of 2020 has led to increased demand for multi-camera configurations with 2 and 8 megapixels, and supported the demand for high-resolution sensors – 64 and 108 megapixels. In the first half of 2020, the share of Sony decreased due to increasing competition from Samsung, OmniVision and SK Hynix,” said Jeffrey Mathews, senior analyst at Strategy Analytics.
