Sony maintains number 1 ranking in O-S-D market

Sony maintains number 1 ranking in O-S-D market
  IC Insights’ new 2019 O-S-D Report - A Market Analysis and Forecast for Optoelectronics, Sensors/Actuators, and Discretes was released at the end of March. Among the O-S-D industry data included in the new 350-page report is an analysis of the top-30 O-S-D suppliers (the top-10 ranking is discussed in this Research Bulletin).

Optoelectronics, sensors, actuators and discretes climb again

Optoelectronics, sensors, actuators and discretes climb again
With tight supplies of widely used power transistors and diodes driving up prices and new optical-imaging applications moving into more systems, the diverse marketplace for optoelectronics, sensors and actuators, and discrete semiconductors (O-S-D) is on pace to grow by 11% for the second year in a row in 2018 and set a ninth consecutive record-high level in combine annual revenues worldwide.

Optoelectronics sales move toward normal growth rates

Optoelectronics sales move toward normal growth rates
In 2016, combined sales for optoelectronics, sensors and actuators, and discrete semiconductors increased two percent to reach a seventh consecutive record-high level of $67.9bn, but growth rates in the three market segments were all over the map last year. Optoelectronics sales fell four percent in 2016, primarily because of the first decline in lamp devices in 15 years due to an oversupply of high-brightness Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) for solid-state lighting applications.

CMOS image sensors experience a growth spurt

After levelling off in the second half of the last decade, CMOS image sensors are in the midst of a strong new wave of growth, which is being driven by a broad range of applications and promises to lift worldwide sales to record-high levels each year through 2019, according to the 2015 edition of IC Insights’ O-S-D Report—A Market Analysis and Forecast for Optoelectronics, Sensors/Actuators, and Discretes.

Three current trends driving optoelectronics market growth

Over the past 15 years, strong growth in optoelectronics has been fueled by several different product categories at different times. Laser transmitters for high-speed optical networks were a major growth driver before the dot.com implosion in 2001. Image sensors and lamp devices (primarily LEDs) became star performers in the last decade, and more recently, laser transmitters have re-emerged as a major growth driver in optoelectronics.

Opto market forecast to improve

Total O-S-D (Optoelectronics, Sensors/Actuators, and Discretes) sales rose to an all-time high of $58.6bn in 2013, according to information from IC Insights’ 2014 'O-S-D Report - A Market Analysis and Forecast for Optoelectronics, Sensors/Actuators, and Discretes'. This just beat the previous high of $58.2bn in 2012, when revenues also grew very slightly from record levels in 2011.

Samsung Tops Optoelectronics Ranking After Absorbing LED Venture

Samsung Electronics catapulted to the top of the optoelectronics supplier ranking in 2012 from 12th place in 2011 after it gained full ownership of Samsung LED, a 50-50 joint venture in light-emitting diodes that was created in 2009 between Samsung Electronics and affiliate Samsung Electro-Mechanics. In April 2012, the venture was absorbed into Samsung Electronics to strengthen and expand the use of high-brightness LEDs in displays, LCD TVs, and new solid-state lighting products. This transfer increased Samsung’s optoelectronics sales by 223% to $2.5 billion in 2012 compared to $780 million in 2011, according to the new 2013 edition of IC Insights’ O-S-D Report—A Market Analysis and Forecast for Optoelectronics, Sensors/Actuators, and Discretes.

Growth of Opto, Sensor, Discrete Devices Outpace ICs

Growth of Opto, Sensor, Discrete Devices Outpace ICs
Continuing a trend that started a few years ago, total sales of optoelectronics, sensors/actuators, and discrete components (collectively, the O-S-D market), increased 8.4% in 2011, far surpassing the 0.4% growth in IC sales, according to data compiled in the newly updated 2012 edition of IC Insights’ O-S-D Report, A Market Analysis and Forecast for Optoelectronic, Sensor/Actuator, and Discretes components. IC Insights forecasts the O-S-D market to grow faster than the IC market in 2012 as well, which would mark the third consecutive year for this achievement (Figure 1).
