The global organic CMOS image sensor market size was valued at $1.19 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $2.87 billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 12.4% from 2021 to 2028. An organic CMOS image sensor is a new technology in CMOS image sensor, which consists of features such as wide dynamic range with high sensitivity; hence, it is possible to capture a clear image with vivid colors and rich textures even in low-light environment. An organic CMOS image sensor uses organic photoelectric conversion layer with high photoelectric conversion property, which provides better performance than conventional image sensors by increasing the number of pixels and providing high resolution images.
The global organic CMOS image sensor market is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period. Factors, such as high image quality and better color contrast, provided by organic CMOS image sensor drive the global market. In addition, introduction of technologies, such as global shutter technology, is expected to fuel the adoption of organic CMOS image sensors. However, organic sensor drains the battery quickly as compared to the available image sensors, which may hinder the growth of the organic CMOS image sensor market. Conversely, high reliability for broader applications and faster & cheaper processing methods are anticipated to drive the growth of the market in future.
The global organic CMOS image sensor market is segmented on the basis of image processing, array type, application, industry vertical, and region. By image processing, the market is bifurcated into 2D sensor and 3D sensor. By array type, the market is classified into linear image sensors and area image sensors. Based on application, the market is divided into 3D imaging, video, machine vision, biometrics, and others. Depending on industry vertical, the market is segregated into consumer electronics, automotive, medical & life sciences, security & surveillance, robotics, and others.
Region-wise, the organic CMOS image sensor industry trends are analyzed across North America (the U.S., Canada, and Mexico), Europe (UK, Germany, France, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, South Korea, and Rest of Asia-Pacific), and LAMEA (Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa). Asia-Pacific is dominating the organic CMOS image sensor market, owing to rising demand for consumer electronics products and rapid development in the medical & life sciences sector in this region. In addition, Asia-Pacific is projected to register significant growth rate during the forecast period. Furthermore, North America holds the second position, followed by Europe.

Covid-19 Impact Analysis
The outbreak of COVID-19 has significantly affected the electronics and semiconductor sector. Business and manufacturing units across various countries were closed, owing to increase in number of COVID-19 cases, and are estimated to remain close in 2021 as well. Furthermore, partial or complete lockdown has disrupted global supply chain, thereby posing challenges for manufactures to reach customers. The overall production process has been adversely affected. However, growth of the medical & life sciences segment is expected to boost the global organic CMOS image sensor market.
The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the society and overall economy across the globe. The impact of this outbreak is growing day-by-day as well as affecting the overall business globally. The crisis is creating uncertainty in the stock market, falling business confidence, massive slowing of supply chain, and increasing panic among the customer segments.
Asian and European countries under lockdowns have suffered major loss of business and revenue due to the shutdown of manufacturing units in the regions. The operations of production and manufacturing industries have been heavily impacted by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to the decline in growth of the organic CMOS image sensor market in 2020.
The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the electronics sector as the production facility has stalled, which, in turn, led to significant demand for electronics and semiconductor products in industries. The impacts of COVID-19 include large-scale manufacturing disruption across Europe and interruption in Chinese parts exports, which may hinder the organic CMOS image sensor market.
Asia-Pacific region would exhibit the highest CAGR of 16.1% during 2021-2028
