Depth imaging applications up to now have been in the industrial, military, and medical fields. The first consumer applications started to emerge around 2010 with the Microsoft Kinect game accessory, based on technology licensed from PrimeSense, which was acquired by Apple in 2013. Meanwhile, Apple is expected to release its iPhone 8 with a depth imaging camera and the market for depth sensing and imaging is expected to expand rapidly by 38% compounded annually through 2022, reaching US$ 9 billion.
The first sections of this report include the mobile depth imaging technologies and applications, and forecast. Later sections include "What's Next?", regarding the increasing need for active (IR) illumination, lists of relevant M&A and private placement transactions, and lists of private and public companies to watch. The report contains 47 pages.
