Steady growth and technology inﬂections open opportunities for medical image sensors
CMOS and emerging technologies will help drive sales of image sensors for x-ray equipment and endoscopes to $100 million by 2017.
Demand for image sensors for medical applications will see steady 9% growth, to pass the $100 million mark by 2017. The main growth driver is the increasing demand for medical treatment by an aging population in developed markets, and by growing wealth in emerging regions. But new technologies are also enabling new applications that will create new opportunities and spur growth, from disposable endoscopes and pill cameras in the endoscopy market, to 3D imaging and even single-photon sensing on the x-ray side.
