    Top brands and global manufacturers of smartphones in response to the growing demand and consumer attention to the performance of smartphone cameras, are constantly seeking to meet this growing demand and gain more market share. This, in turn, has led to a significant increase in the annual supply of camera modules. According to the latest report from the TrendForce Institute on Monday, April 12 this year, despite the global impact of COVID-19 on the smartphone market in 2020, the supply of smartphone camera modules will continue to show an annual growth of 3%. <b>TrendForce</b> <b>forecasts</b> <b>5.07</b> <b>billion</b> <b>units</b> of <b>smartphone</b> <b>camera</b> <b>module</b> in 2021

    This increase is due to that The number of cameras used in each phone has increased, and thus, despite the decrease in the supply of some top brands, the demand for camera parts has continued to increase. TrendForce experts predict that the annual supply of camera modules in 2021 will grow by 11% to 5.07 billion units.

    Of course, in addition to increasing the number of camera modules for each phone, the specifications and capabilities of camera sensors Have also been upgraded. On the one hand, the resolution of the main camera sensor of some models of Android smartphones has reached 64 megapixels; A sensor whose penetration rate will exceed 20% in 2021 and will have the fastest general growth and popularity among the main camera specifications. Of course, companies like Apple will continue to use the 12-megapixel main camera, trying to focus on the overall quality of the captured images instead of increasing the resolution of the sensor. On the other hand, in terms of CMOS image sensors, well-known manufacturers such as Apple, Huawei and Xiaomi are expected to increase the camera sensor size of their products by one inch to improve the quality and performance of the camera module in low light or night light conditions./p> <b>TrendForce</b> <b>forecasts</b> <b>5.07</b> <b>billion</b> <b>units</b> of <b>smartphone</b> <b>camera</b> <b>module</b> in 2021 Supply of smartphone camera module from 2017 to 2021

    In addition to the market focus on ultra-wide cameras, Apple has decided to look at future models of its iPhone, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, from the perspective of VCM (abbreviated voice coil motors, winding motors). Equip the audio that drives the autofocus system, thereby enhancing the autofocus performance of its flagship models. Relying on FreeForm Lens technology, Huawei and Oppo are also working to eliminate the distortion effect that typically appears in the corners and around photos taken with ultra-wide cameras. Periscope by Android smartphone brands has led to a significant annual growth of 429% of these modules in 2020. Compared to the telephoto cameras on iPhones (which offer 2.5x optical zoom), these cameras are capable of providing the user with at least 5x optical zoom, which means very high image resolution in long-range photography situations. Is. However, it seems that the projected decline in the supply of Huawei and Honor smartphones, which are the most aggressive in the industry in terms of periscope cameras, will have a negative impact on the overall supply of these modules in 2021. According to TrendForce analysts, the same growth as in 2020 for continuous autofocus periscope modules will not be repeated without mass production and the desire of other manufacturers to use these sensors.
