Trends for the Worldwide Mobile Phone Camera Module Market and Supply Chain
Market Intelligence & Consulting Institute (MIC), August 2007
CCM (Compact Camera Module) shipment volume has continued to grow, fueled by increased shipments of camera phones and increased use of video applications. As the market expansion has led to increasingly stringent price pressure, and prices per pixel continue to fall. In response, makers have begun to adopt different lens or low-priced sensors. Among new camera phones released by the worlds five leading mobile phone makers, share of 2M or higher models has significantly increased, while 1.3M models are being phased out. Built-in video camera modules are also becoming more common, and brand-name vendors are beginning to market high-resolution products in the emerging markets. This report will examine the camera phone deployment of brand-name vendors as well as the current status of CCM makers.
