Market Snapshot


Global Smartphone Sensors Market valued at USD 69,339.5 Million in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 1,01,389.8 Million by 2026 with a CAGR of 17.50% during the forecast period, 2021–2027.  


Sensors are defined as devices or equipment, sensing different parameters such as fingerprint, pressure, temperature, and others. Sensors play a vital role in smartphones as these are being integrated into smartphones to gather different information and data associated with various installed applications. To run different applications on smartphones, sensors are an essential requirement. Moreover, applications related to photography and cameras require image sensors to perform the task, and to run gaming applications, smartphones require accelerometer, gyroscope, and touch sensors. Smartphone sensors are getting more advanced every day, and various new technologies are being incorporated into smartphones. Some of these new technologies include 3D sensing, Lidar, and AR, among others. The global smartphone industry has witnessed exceptional growth with the introduction of new technologies, designs, and features. As per MRFR analysis, global smartphone shipments are expected to reach around 1.5 billion units by the end of 2023. This is expected to increase the manufacture of smartphone sensors during the forecast period. Sensors detect changes in the environment and movement and convert them into electronic signals that can be processed by the phone.  


Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest market share of 35.3% in 2018, with a market value of USD 24,149.4 Million; the market is expected to register the highest CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period. Europe was the second-largest market in 2018, valued at USD 20,358.6 million; the market is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.6%.

Key Developments



  • In October 2020, AMS launches the smallest integrated ambient light sensor (ALS) and proximity sensor module, i.e., TMD2712, in a miniature 1mm x 2mm footprint for a smartphone. It is 0.5mm high and can be fitted into the same teardrop notch of an LCD touchscreen display as a selfie camera. This supports the trend for phones with a minimal bezel or even no bezel, an approach to industrial design that maximizes the screen-to-body ratio and gives the user the greatest possible viewable display area.

  • In September 2020, OMRON Corporation announced the launch of the B5L Series Embedded TOF sensor module with three-dimensional distance measurement capability of people and objects. The B5L Series utilizes unique optical design technology for the stable measurement of three-dimensional distance information across a wide area, even under sunlight.

  • In March 2020, Melexis collaborated with Eyeware, a Swiss-based 3D eye-tracking technology company, to create an advanced driver monitoring system (DMS). DMS leverages Eyeware’s attention-monitoring technology, which uses Melexis’ new MLX75027 3D Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensors with VGA resolution, to enable robust eye gaze and head tracking for in-cabin driver monitoring, even in the sunlight.

  • In August 2019, NEXT Biometrics signed an agreement with a leading access control solution provider. As per the terms of this agreement, NEXT Biometrics’ new One Touch ID 2010 ultra-slim FAP20 fingerprint sensor module would be incorporated into a range of its access control readers, such as time and attendance and physical access control devices, for sales on a global scale. The One Touch ID 2010 SPI is an ultra-slim FAP20 fingerprint sensor module ideally suited for integration into a broad range of applications for reliable and user-friendly authentication, identification, and verification.
