Chapter 1: Introduction
An image sensor is a system or a device used to convert the optical image seen through a lens into electrical signals that are further converted into digital signals that could be read by a computer. Image sensors are used widely for digital photography in digital cameras and other similar imaging devices. Charge coupled device (CCD) and complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) are the two most used image sensors. Both CCD and CMOS are image sensors that convert incident light into electrons or electrical change and convert the analog electrical charge into digital signals. In a CCD sensor, the electrical charge is transported uniformly across the chip and converted into digital signals at one end. However, in a CMOS sensor, several transistors are attached to a single pixel and the electric charge in each pixel is individually read as digital output.

For the research report, we have done rigorous primary as well as secondary research in order to track the market in an accurate manner. Key data for estimating the market, such as top-down and bottom-up models, were developed to determine valuewise trends and estimation for the global CCD and CMOS market. Key players in the CCD and CMOS market have been identified through a review of secondary sources such as industry whitepapers, annual reports, published reports by credible agencies, financial reports and published interviews of key opinion leaders (KOLs) from leading companies. During the primary interviews, KOLs also suggested some other CCD and CMOS producers that were not included under the initial scope of the study. We have further refined the company profile section by adding the suggested producers of CCD and CMOS. Generally, KOLs include chief executive officers (CEO), general managers, vice presidents, sales directors, marketing executives, R&D directors, product managers, procurement managers, export managers, etc. During the research process, all the major stakeholders across the value chain of CCD and CMOS were contacted for conducting primary interviews.

In the first phase of the study, revenue for CCD and CMOS market was determined through reviewing annual sales reports, analyzing related industry reports, tracking global import and export trends and monitoring financial parameters related to the market, among others. In the second phase of the study, we conducted primary interviews with KOLs from leading players in the market to verify our initial estimation gathered through secondary sources. Based on these primary interviews, some of the initial findings were kept intact and others were refined. The final value forecasts for the CCD and CMOS market were derived through a series of primary interviews with KOLs. For some segments in the CCD and CMOS market, there were no secondary hard data available. In those cases, price trends, inflation rate, industrial production indices, purchasing managers’ indices (PMI) etc. were used to estimate data for these market segments. During primary interviews, these estimations were verified by KOLs.
