Research and Markets: Global and Chinese CMOS Camera Module Industry Report 2014

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/m2v5kt/global_and) has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese CMOS Camera Module Industry Report, 2013-2014" report to their offering.

In 2013, the CMOS camera module market size attained approximately USD13.7 billion, up 18.9% from 2012; but in 2014, it will shrink greatly, up merely 6.7% to USD14.6 billion. The market competition became fiercer in 2013, especially the price wars; therefore, almost all of CMOS camera modules saw a decline of about 2 percentage points in gross margin.

Japan Konica-Minolta is the first one that exits from the fields of CMOS camera modules and mobile phone cameras due to unbearable falling profits. O-film, a company in Mainland China, has invested RMB2 billion in CMOS camera modules. As the world's largest film-based touch screen vendor, O-film has extensive customer resources, and it intends to enter the CMOS camera module field with competitive prices in order to become the largest camera module company in Mainland China. O-film's gross margin was less than 6% in 2013.

South Korea Cowell performed most outstandingly in 2013 with the annual revenue growth rate of 148%. With the main production base located in Dongguan, China, Cowell acted as Apple's core supplier in 2013. Apple supported Cowell to reduce the dependence on Sharp and LG INNOTEK. In 2013, Cowell's revenue and profit surged. However, not every Apple's supplier was lucky. Primax specializing in Apple's low-end products witnessed dropping gross margin.

Largan nearly monopolizes the non-Korean 13MP camera market which is characterized with high technical threshold and high patent threshold, occupying an unparalleled position. The second-ranked Genius suffered losses in 2013. In 2014, Sunny acquired the assets of Konica-Minolta in Shanghai, so that its optical lens technology is expected to be greatly improved, but it still can not threaten Largan. Largan continues capacity expansion in 2014, but mainly in Taiwan, and it will cut down the capacity in Mainland China owing to labor costs.

In 2014, OIS (Optical Image Stabilizer) is still a hot topic in the CMOS camera module field. Samsung AFA's core supplier JAHWA is not able to provide enough OIS capacity to meet the demand of Samsung, and Samsung is reluctant to commission non-core providers to offer OIS, because Samsung needs to master its supply chain perfectly. Samsung may not launch a large number of OIS mobile phones in future.

Nevertheless, Apple may use OIS on iPhone6. The core OIS supplier Sharp is also Apple's core supplier in camera modules and screens. Another core OIS supplier LG INNOTEK is Apple's core supplier as well.
