Technological Advancements in Smartphone 3D Camera Sensors to Aid the Market Growth

The smartphone 3D camera market was valued at US$ 1.93 Bn in 2017 and expected to grow at a CAGR of 45.6% during the forecast period from 2017 to 2026. In recent years, smartphones with 3D camera have gained significant popularity. Apple became the first to offer a 3D camera in its iPhone X in 2017. Since then numerous smartphone manufacturers have shown interest in integrating 3D cameras into their smartphones. These cameras are capable of mapping and recognizing a person’s face even in all light conditions even when the face is partially covered with objects like glasses and hats. Depth sensing, 3D scanning of objects and 3D modeling are some of the basic features provided by 3D cameras. One of the most prominent factors aiding the 3D smartphone camera market growth can be attributed to the increasing adoption of smartphones with enhanced camera capabilities. The young population in particular lay a great deal of focus on these aspects while making a purchase decision for a smartphone. However, high manufacturing cost remains one of the restraints hindering market growth. Suppliers charge approximately US$ 50 for each module which ultimately increases the final price of the smartphone.
