    After Sony CMOS Image Sensor leading market share in 2020, but now Samsung narrows Gap

    In 2020, Sony was the market leader in CMOS Image Sensors, but Samsung is closing the gap

    Samsung Electronics, a South Korean electronics giant, has narrowed the CMOS Image Sensor (CIS) market share gap with Sony. According to a new report from Yole Development, Samsung is gaining traction in the CIS market.

    Sony, a Japanese electronics company, had a 40% market share in the CIS market at the end of 2020, down 2% from 2019. In the meantime, Samsung’s market share increased by 1% from 21% in 2019 to 21% in 2020. In the CIS industry, Samsung had a 22 percent market share in 2020.

    According to the Yole Development report (via Elec), Samsung had a 13 percent increase in sales year over year, while Sony saw no change in CMOS Image Sensors (CIS) sales. Samsung began manufacturing image sensors in 2002, with a market share of less than 20% until 2018. With a 12 percent market share, Omnivision came in third. It’s worth noting that until 2014, Omnivision was ranked second, ahead of Samsung. Samsung’s skill in developing and producing CIS, according to Yole Research, enabled the company expand its reach and considerably increase sales and market share, allowing it to become the second-largest CMOS manufacturer.

    Meanwhile, Sony’s revenue in 2020 was 1.01 trillion yen, down 5% from the previous year. According to the research group, the loss was caused by Huawei’s smartphone business being halted as a result of US sanctions. In a recent conference call, Sony acknowledged a rise in CIS for digital cameras, while CIS sales for smartphones are down owing to the COVID-19 epidemic.

    The Japanese electronics manufacturer intends to expand its production capacity. Sony started running its new factory in Nagasaki in April, and the firm is now proposing to establish a second unit to produce smartphone CMOS Image Sensors. By 2025, the company wants to have a 60 percent market share. Samsung, on the other hand, is gearing up to enter the automobile market with the ISOCELL Auto 4AC image sensor.

    According to the Yole Development study, the CIS business was valued $20.7 billion in total, with cellphones and consumer items accounting for 72 percent of the overall market value. According to the research firm’s prediction, the CIS market would be valued USD 31.5 billion by the end of 2026.
