Camera phone sales drive image sensor market : In 2005, the image sensor market continued its strong growth, spurred by the booming camera phone market, reports In-Stat. Camera phones comprised over 70% of all digital cameras that shipped in 2005, and the vast majority of these devices used Complimentary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) sensors, the high-tech market research firm says. Because of the strength of the camera phone market, overall area CMOS image sensor shipments exceeded area CCD shipments by nearly a factor of three in 2005. This gap will continue to widen through 2010. "CMOS will continue to flourish, due to its popularity in camera phones, web cameras, and toy cameras," says Brian O'Rourke, In-Stat analyst.
