News unit top brands and world-class smartphone manufacturers in response Due to the increasing demand and attention of consumers to the performance of smartphone cameras, they are continuously seeking to meet this growing demand and capture a larger share of the market. This, in turn, has caused a significant increase in the annual supply of camera modules. As per latest report TrendForce Institute on Monday, April 12 this year (23 April 1400), despite the impact of the global pandemic of COVID-19 on the smartphone market in 2020, the launch of the camera module Smartphones continue to show annual growth of 3%.

This increase is due to the fact that the number of cameras used in each phone has increased and thus, despite the decrease in the supply of some top brands, the demand for camera parts has continued to increase. Based on this, Trendforce experts have predicted that the annual supply of camera modules will reach 5.07 billion units in 2021 with an 11% growth.

Of course, in addition to increasing the number of camera modules for each phone, the specifications and capabilities of camera sensors will also increase. have also upgraded On the one hand, the resolution of the main camera sensor of some Android smartphone models has reached 64 megapixels; A sensor whose penetration rate will exceed 20% in 2021 and will have the fastest growth and popularity among mainstream camera specifications. Of course, companies like Apple will continue to use the 12-megapixel main camera and will try to focus on the overall quality of the captured photos instead of increasing the resolution of the sensor. On the other hand, in terms of CMOS image sensors, it is expected that well-known manufacturers such as Apple , Huawei and Xiaomi increase the size of the camera sensor of their products to one inch to improve the quality and performance of the module Improve the camera in low ambient light conditions or at night.

Huawei and Oppo also rely on the FreeForm Lens technology, trying to eliminate the distortion effect that usually appears in the corners and around the photos recorded with the ultra-wide camera. Periscope by Android smartphone brands has led to an impressive annual growth of 429% of these modules in 2020. Compared to the telephoto cameras in iPhone phones (which offer 2.5x optical zoom), these cameras are able to provide the user with at least 5x optical zoom, which means very high image resolution in long-range photography situations. Is. However, it seems that the expected decrease in the supply of smartphones Huawei and Honor which is the most invasive procedure in terms of periscopic camera. taken by the entire industry, will have a negative impact on the overall supply of these modules in 2021. As Trendforce analysts believe, a growth similar to 2020 for periscopic modules with continuous autofocus capability will not be repeated without mass production and the willingness of other manufacturers to use these sensors.
