Sony Semiconductor Solutions topped with 45 percent revenue share. Samsung had 26 percent and Omnivision 11 percent. The top three vendors captured nearly 83 percent revenue share in the global smartphone image sensor market in 2021.
In terms of smartphone multi-camera application, image sensors for depth and macro application reached 30 percent share while those for ultrawide application exceeded 15 percent share.
“Large format and high-resolution image sensors will be a key area of growth as OEMs aim to apply superior camera capabilities within smartphones. However, demand continues to be influenced by the CIS inventory as well as the supply shortages for smartphone components,” said Stephen Entwhistle, vice president of the Strategic Technologies Practice at Strategy Analytics.
