SONY continues to dominate the global CMOS image sensor (CIS) market, according to Omdia's latest market research report. SONY recorded 2.442 billion dollars in CIS sales in the third quarter, accounting for 51.6 percent of the total
In comparison, Samsung, the second largest CIS supplier, only has a 15.6 percent market share. Howe Technology, Anson Semiconductor and GalaxyCore ranked second with 9.7 percent, 7.0 percent and 4.0 percent, respectively. In sixth place is SK Hynix, which is about to enter the top five with a 3.8% share.
Samsung reported $740 million in CMOS image sensor sales in the third quarter of 2022, down from $800 million to $900 million in previous quarters.
Market watchers say one reason for SONY's success is that the Japanese tech giant has already secured orders for devices such as Xiaomi's 12S Ultra. As you know at IT House, the latest Mi 13 Pro continues the highly acclaimed Leica image from the Mi 12S Ultra and uses SONY's latest IMX 989 sensor.
In 2021, Samsung's CMOS image sensor market share was 29 percent, compared with 46 percent for SONY. SONY appears to be widening its gap with No. 2 in the middle of 2022, a trend that market watchers believe will continue.
Notably, SONY is expected to supply CMOS image sensors for Apple's upcoming iPhone 15 line, which could further boost its lead.
