The top three vendors – Sony, Samsung and OmniVision – capturing 42, 25 and 11 percent of the market, respectively. The report estimates that the top three vendors took almost 80 percent revenue share in the global smartphone image sensor market in H1 2021.

In the broader image sensor market Sony was market leader with 40 percent in 2020, according to Yole Developpement (see Sony loses market share in image sensors). 

“The image sensor vendors witnessed an accelerated momentum from smartphone OEMs, who actively adopted high-resolution CIS and low-pixel CIS products for multicamera applications, to secure inventory and cater to pent-up demand,” said Jeffrey Mathews, an analyst with Strategy Analytics, in a statement.

Stephen Entwhistle, a vice president with Strategy Analytics, said supply fluctuations of various high-pixel and low pixel CIS products continue to put limitation on the growth of the smartphone image sensor market.
