Article Title C Suppliers Shift Strategies to Counter Decline in Digital Still Cameras
Content:

For many years, stand-alone DSC products drove advancements in digital imaging systems—including
greater picture resolution in image sensors, more powerful camera processors, and higher density
nonvolatile NAND flash memory. But the decline in stand-alone DSC shipments has caused a number of
IC suppliers to shift strategies and seek out other expanding markets. Cellular phones continue to be a
major growth application for digital cameras and imaging, but IC Insights predicts high growth rates for
several other embedded applications this decade including automotive, tablets & PCs, security &
surveillance, and medical/scientific/industrial, which will open high-volume market opportunities for image
sensor suppliers and IC makers in the near future.
Figure breaks out IC sales by type of camera application. IC sales for stand-alone digital cameras are
projected to decline at an annual average rate of -10.5% in the forecast period, while revenues for
integrated circuits used in automotive camera systems are expected to surge by a CAGR of 113.3%
between 2012 and 2017. Sales of ICs for tablet and PC cameras are forecast to rise by a CAGR of 20.2%
while cellphone camera integrated circuits are expected to rise by an annual rate of 9.0% in the
2012-2017 period.
