A Rising Tide Raises Both CCD and CMOS Image Sensor Markets

The battle between CCD and CMOS image sensors is cooling down, as each technology grows with their respective applications. While CMOS sensors have been unable to penetrate much of the high volume market that was once expected of it, several key applications are showing strong growth, such as in optical computer mice and mobile phones. Thus, the strong growth in key applications represents a "rising tide that raises all boats" for the time being, while growth in unit sales outpace declines in prices.

Image sensors are used in a wide variety of applications from digital cameras to optical mice and machine vision. Strategies Unlimited's new report, IMAGE SENSOR MARKET REVIEW AND FORECAST - 2003, provides the most comprehensive study of the market for image sensors.
