TrendForce: the mobile 3D sensing infrared laser projector market will reach almost $2 billion by 2020

TrendForce says that smartphone companies are developing 3D sensing capabilities following Apple's iPhone X launch (with its 3D sensor). The company estimates that the market for mobile 3D sensing by infrared laser projectors will grow from $246 million in 2017 to $1.95 billion by 2020.

Current solutions for mobile 3D sensing include structured light and time of flight (ToF). The iPhone X uses structured light with a 30,000 dot IR projector. Time of flight developers include STMicroelectronics, Google/Infineon/PMD and MicroVision.
