As we all know Sony is one of the leading Image Sensor developers in the world. Now, once again according to a new report Sony holds the leading global market share of nearly 50% in value terms for image sensors (is a good news), but there is a serious competition of Sony with the 2nd Position holder, Samsung.
According to the recent report, compared to last year 7.8 billion yen loss in fiscal 2016, Sony projects a 120 billion yen operating profit this Fiscal year (2017)
“For the semiconductor segment this fiscal year, Sony assumes a foreign exchange rate of 110 yen per dollar and projects a 120 billion yen operating profit, rebounding from a 7.8 billion yen loss in fiscal 2016.
Sony will cut costs, raise production yields for new offerings and increase sales of image sensors used in automobiles. The moves aim to shield the semiconductor business from highly volatile smartphone demand.
Sony holds the leading global market share of nearly 50% in value terms for image sensors, Techno Systems Research says. But competition from No. 2 Samsung Electronics and others is growing.”
