Posted  by GoPhotonics


Transparency Market Research, a leading market intelligence firm empowering enterprises with business information, published a report on, "Automotive Compact Camera Module Market". According to the report, the Global Automotive Compact Camera Module Market was estimated to be worth a market valuation of around US$ 6.7 billion in 2022. The market is anticipated to advance with a 9% CAGR from 2023 to 2031 and the market is likely to gain US$ 14.5 billion by 2031.

Autonomous cars significantly rely on a variety of sensors, including small camera modules to observe and understand their environment. These cameras work with the vehicle's internal artificial intelligence system to identify and distinguish objects, people, road signs, traffic signals, and other cars in order to provide safe navigation and decision-making. 

To ensure fail-safe functioning, redundancy is a crucial component of autonomous vehicle design. Safety is improved by lowering the possibility of sensor failure by integrating many tiny camera modules all around the car. Compared to other sensing technologies like LiDAR, compact camera modules are more affordable. The growth of the automotive small camera module market is being enhanced by the increased usage of autonomous cars.
