DUBLIN, Jan. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets( has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese CCM (CMOS Camera Module) Industry Report, 2015" report to their offering.

Global CCM market size was worth USD16.247 billion in 2015, a year-on-year rise of 3.8% from 2014, the slowest rate since 2010. It is expected that growth rate will continue to decelerate in 2016, only 1.3%, but bounce back slightly to 1.6% in 2017 with a market size of USD16.732 billion.

There were several reasons for slowdown. First, the world was plagued by high deflation rates and currencies like Japanese yen, Korean won and NTD depreciated greatly. Second, the mobile phone market slowed and has become almost saturated. Smartphone market can still maintain the expansion in 2015 and may be afraid to be flat or start declining in 2016. Third, the competition, especially that in Chinese mainland market, was intense. Despite continued upgrading of CCM pixel (mostly 13M pixels for rear CCM), the ASP didn't rise but slip down. As more and more vendors enter the CCM field with OIS and high-performance AF, a price plunge is inevitable.

In CIS field, shipments are expected to amount to 4,196 million units in 2015 and 4,390 million units in 2016, up 8.8% and 4.6% against the previous year, respectively, compared with annual growth of 11.5% in 2014, indicating a further slowdown. The market size is predicted to be USD9.16 billion in 2015 and USD9.628 billion in 2016, a year-on-year rise of 4.6% and 5.1%, respectively, compared with annual increase of 10.7% in 2014. Except for On-Semi, Sony and Sharp, all other vendors experienced declines. Sony acquired Toshiba's CIS business, further consolidating its hegemony and its first place by performance, and will keep growing rapidly in 2016. On-Semi is a bellwether in automotive CIS field, seizing nearly 50% market share. As integration went well very after acquisition of Aptina by On-Semi, combined with explosive growth in automotive camera market, On-Semi embraced rapid development in its CIS business, and is expected to record revenue of USD720 million in 2015, including USD400 million from automotive field, a surge of more than 100%.
