In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the growth of consumer electronics market as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global photo detector market:
Growth of consumer electronics market
Photo detectors are used in several consumer electronics devices, including smartphones, optical disk drives, tablets, digital televisions, digital cameras, webcams, and compact disk players. In consumer electronics devices, photo detectors such as ambient light sensors, are used for adjusting the screen brightness. To increase the performance of end products, OEMs are integrating multiple sensors in a single device. Multiple photo detectors are used by smartphones for adjusting the brightness of the display and camera. Smartphone cameras use complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors that have photo detectors. The increase in the number of photo detectors results in a rise in the number of pixels. The most commonly used sensors in smartphones are CMOS image sensors.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for semiconductor equipment, “Smartphone manufacturers are racing to enhance the quality of their phone cameras in terms of build and quality, owing to the intense competition in the market. This will enable an increase in the integration of photo detectors in cameras. Several smartphone players such as Huawei Technologies, Apple, Samsung, LG Electronics, OnePlus, OPPO and Vivo Communication Technology have started providing dual cameras on the back of their smartphones.”
