Sensors for Cellphones and Tablets - 2016 Report by Yole Developpement


Published on

In a global cellphone and tablet industry worth over $400B, sensors commanded US$12.2B in 2015, with 9.5% CAGR forecasted for 2015-2021.

The sensor market is still growing impressively, but needs to reinvent itself to avoid commoditization

While many are fearing a general slowdown due to smartphone market saturation, our forecast is rather optimistic concerning sensors. Driven by the expansion of the smartphone category over other phones and new applications, the sensor industry for cellphones and tablets is expected to grow at a 9.5% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2015-2021. The market was worth US$12B in 2015, and will reach US$21B by 2021. The sensor offering has never been so diverse. The list includes: Accelerometers, gyroscopes, gyroscope for optical image stabilization (OIS), magnetometers, e-compasses, inertial measurement units (IMUs), including nine degree-of-freedom (9DOF) IMUs, microphones, pressure sensors, humidity and temperature (H&T), gas, ambient light sensors (ALS), proximity, red/green/blue (RGB) color sensors, heart rate monitors (HRMs), laser rangers, 3D cameras, CMOS image sensors (CISs), fingerprint and iris recognition. Makers of all such sensors need to stay at the cutting edge of innovation. In this report, we’ve analyzed and forecasted evolution of those sensors integrated in current smartphones, distributed in three different categories: the motion sensing hub, the environmental hub and the optical hub.
