DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/jw7r8r/the_taiwanese)
has announced the addition of the "The
Taiwanese Compact Camera Module Industry, 3Q 2013" report to
Shipment Volume of the Taiwanese Camera Module Industry to Reach About
192.58 Million Units in the Second Half of 2013
Chinese Branded Vendors' Role in Bolstering Taiwanese Camera Module
Shipments Becoming Increasingly Important.
Orders from branded vendors in the United States and Europe are still
the major sources of revenue for Taiwanese camera module makers.
However, with more and more Chinese branded vendors releasing orders to
Taiwanese manufacturers, they will become an important growth factor for
the Taiwanese camera module indusry.
Chinese mobile phone branded vendors purchase camera modules mainly from
Chinese makers. The newly entered Chinese camera module makers have
obtained outsourcing orders from Chinese branded vendors, taking
advantage of their production flexibility and price competitiveness.
Nevertheless, Chinese makers are still lagging behind Taiwanese peers in
terms of technological capabilities, and Chinese makers' shipments are
mainly constituted by 5MP and under models. With the possession of
advanced technology, Taiwanese makers have secured a lot of high-end
orders for 8MP and higher models from Chinese vendors. Driven by the
growth in shipment volume of Chinese branded mobile phones, 8MP and
higher models' share in total Taiwanese camera module shipments also
rose in the first half of 2013.
According to Nina Ko, an industry analyst, an ICT industry research
institute based in Taipei, as mobile phone camera pixels continue to
improve, the share of mobile phones equipped with 8MP models also
increases. Thanks to manufacturing orders outsourced by Chinese
companies, the shipment share of 8MP and higher models jumped to 16.6%
in the first half of 2013, up from 8.3% in the same period of last year;
due to the decreasing prices, 8MP and higher models have replaced 5MP
ones. In the second half of 2013, 8MP models are expected to be
widespread used in mid-range mobile phones.
