3D imaging and sensing

With the introduction of the iPhone X in September 2017, Apple set the standard for technology and use-case for 3D sensing in consumer. Apple contrived a complex assembly of camera modules and light sources using structured light principles, along with an innovative NIR global shutter image sensor. 

Yole Développement (Yole) releases its 3D Imaging & Sensing report, 2018 Edition. Since the previous edition, the market clearly moved to another path. The Yole´s popular technology & market analysis offers you the key insights to discover and better understand the 3D imaging & sensing revolution. Yole´s analysts propose a deep comprehension of the 3D imaging & sensing ecosystem with a detailed analysis of applications and technical market segmentation. This report also presents up-to-date market trends and forecasts. The competitive landscape with major global players is also well described. 

3D imaging & sensing is everywhere. Thanks to advances in semiconductor miniaturization, innovative technologies are able to serve the consumer market, which in 2018 is well under way. 

Yole offers you today a snapshot of the 3D imaging & sensing industry as well as the dedicated webcast, Components for 3D Sensing Revolution, taking place on July 10 at 5:00 PM CEST â€" 8:00 AM PDT. Join this online event to discover the key challenges of underlying sub- components for 3D sensing in the consumer space as well as a specific focus on illumination VCSELs. 

According to its 3D imaging & sensing report, Yole expects the global market to expand from US$2.1 billion in 2017 to US$18.5 billion in 2023. The market is showing an impressive 44% CAGR during this period. Along with consumer, automotive, industrial, and other high-end markets will also experience a double-digit growth pattern. 

The transition from imaging to sensing is happening. AI -powered devices and robotics are gaining a better understanding of their surroundings, and developing a new level of interaction with humans. 3D imaging & sensing technology is currently delivering on its early promises. Despite half-successful attempts like Xbox´s Kinect technology and Leap-Motion hand controllers, 3D sensing is now tracking toward ubiquitousness. 

Technology providers of global shutter image sensors, VCSELs, injection-molded and glass optics, DOEs, and semiconductor packaging are all benefiting.

In the consumer world, smartphone players are now quickly revising their own 3D sensing strategy. As an example, Oppo made the first announcement beginning of the year with Orbeec, while Xiaomi released the Mi 8 explorer edition with Mantis as a technology partner. 

Once the alternative supply chains for Android smartphones are in place, the adoption/attachment rate should accelerate and move from 13.5% in 2018 to 55% in 2023. The attachment on the phone´s rear (world) face remains a key question, as AR/VR has yet to show proven sales momentum. The market research company Yole, nevertheless forecasts an emergence of rear 3D camera, though with limited penetration.
