While the smartphone revolution is currently hitting a natural ceiling, the imaging semiconductors appear to keep their momentum as Yole Développement recently forecasted a double digit growth pattern at +10.4% CAGR for the 2015-2021 timeframe. Multiple trends are currently boosting sales. First, the smartphone itself which is increasing its content in such digital imaging components. Rear cameras increase their optical format due to the use of high aperture optics, while front cameras are increasing resolution now reaching 5Mp to 8Mp due to the selfie trend. We will discuss the new approaches such as the dual camera setup which is renewing the mobile market and oncoming 3D cameras which will probably be game changers. Outside mobile, the consumer electronic market is reinventing itself thanks to the IoT and consumer robotics, this webcast will present and discuss the different use cases. Finally, we will comment on the second largest contributor to growth, which is automotive. Different trends including ADAS and 360° view cameras are boosting this specific market; this webcast will explain its dynamics and synthetize the overall momentum of Imaging semiconductors.
