Nikkei Report: Sony Holds 50% of Image Sensor Market in Value

Nikkei reports that Sony holds 50% of the global sensor market share:

“To bolster resistance to any appreciation in the yen, Sony will cut costs, raise production yields for new offerings and increase sales of image sensors used in automobiles. The moves aim to shield the semiconductor business from highly volatile smartphone demand. Output of image sensors is expected to reach 100,000 a month at the end of March 2018, with the volume rising another 10-20% by 2020.

Sony holds the leading global market share of nearly 50% in value terms for image sensors, Techno Systems Research says. But competition from No. 2 Samsung Electronics and others is growing.”
