Some major key players for global 3D Sensor market are
One of the main driving factors of 3D sensor market is the rising use of 3D sensor in electronic gadgets and appliances. STMicroelectronics, which supplies Apple and a number of other smartphone manufacturers with its FlightSense sensors, has delivered more than 300 million TOF chips, technology in personal mobile handset, automotive, healthcare and retail. Sony Corp., which has 49% of the market for image sensors, is developing new TOF (Time of Flight) sensors that are smaller than today’s sensors, and can sense depth at greater distances. The extensive use of 3D sensor can be found out according to the company. These sensors are useful for applications such as drones, augmented-reality applications, and industrial applications. 3D sensor has the ability to combine their functions with other sensor types. The availability of highly efficient processors and software has permitted this sensor data fusion, which integrates input from multiple sensors and processes the data in real time enabling the device to have near human like sensing abilities which increases the demand of this product. However, applications for full-sized 3D sensors are not limited to smartphones or other consumer devices; the technology can be used for any type of 3D scanning in which an object must be mapped with precision. Other than smart phone it is also used in 3D printing, design mapping, object recognition, facial recognition, gesture-based control etc. The lack of human expertise for handling 3D sensor technology is restraining the market.
Even if 3D sensor technology is relatively new, it is increasingly adopted in North America, due to the growing demand for effective processing in terms of 3-dimensional imaging. Increasing research of companies to implement 3D sensors in many applications have caused the growth of 3d sensor market in North America. In Europe, industries are also adopting 3D sensors in many applications like automation, photography, virtual reality and augmented reality etc. Asia Pacific region is expected to have high growth in 3D sensors market due to the application of 3d sensors is increased in industrial robotics, healthcare, and entertainment sectors.
