By Application, the Passenger cars segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024

The CCD (Charge-Coupled Device) segment in the automotive image sensors market signifies the utilization of a specific image sensor technology for automotive applications. CCD sensors are analog devices, converting light into electrical signals for subsequent processing and display. They are prevalent in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), parking assist systems, and rear-view cameras due to their high resolution and low noise. However, their manufacturing cost exceeds that of alternative image sensors, such as CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor) sensors. Consequently, the adoption of CCD sensors in automotive applications has waned, with numerous manufacturers favoring the more cost-effective CMOS sensors.

By Type, CCD  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024

The commercial vehicle (CV) sector in the global automotive market, particularly in the US and China, is experiencing significant growth due to increasing demand. This trend is driven by the prioritization of safety and efficiency by CV Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), such as Daimler, Scania, DAF, Iveco, MAN, Scania, and Volvo. In response, these companies have been investing in Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) and related technologies, including automotive image sensors, to enhance safety features in their CV offerings. The financial capabilities of CV manufacturers enable them to make sizeable investments in these technologies, making automotive image sensors a strategic priority in the CV segment.

North America is forecasted to hold the largest market size by region in 2024

The Automotive Image Sensors market is experiencing significant growth due to the increasing demand for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles.
