Meanwhile, CCD image sensor sales are forecast to rise 27 per cent in 2010 to Rs.15,148.76 crore ($3.3 billion) after falling 24 per cent in 2009 to Rs.11,935.39 crore ($2.6 billion). CCDs, which continue to dominate digital still cameras, video camcorders, scanners, and other machine imaging applications, are expected to set a new sales record in 2011, when dollar volumes reach nearly Rs.16,984.98 crore ($3.7 billion) and exceed the current annual peak of Rs.16,066.87 crore ($3.5 billion) set in 2006. IC Insights' 2010 O-S-D Report shows CCD sales growing at an 8 per cent CAGR in the five-year forecast period, reaching Rs.17,444.03 crore ($3.8 billion) in 2014.s

Total image sensor sales continue to be the largest segment in the optoelectronics market. In 2009, image sensor revenues at Rs.29,379.42 crore ($6.4 billion) accounted for 35 per cent of the Rs.84,006.77 crore ($18.3 billion) optoelectronics market, followed by solid-state lamp devices (primarily LEDs), which represented 31 per cent of the sales total at Rs.26,166.04 crore ($5.7 billion), according to IC Insights' new O-S-D Report. The LED product category is now increasing at a much higher rate than image sensors due to strong growth in high-brightness LEDs, which are used to illuminate flat-displays in DTVs and LCDs in cellular smart phones and other portable systems as well as in emerging solid-state room lighting products. By 2014, total LED sales will be roughly equal to image sensors at Rs.55,545.46 crore ($12.1 billion), based on the report's forecast.
