Shutters are used in digital cameras for controlling the exposure time of the film to the sunlight. Shutter technology has evolved from mechanical shutters to electronic shutters. Electronic shutters are silent in operation as there are no physical movements of the parts, offer a faster frame rate and reduced blur effects. This has resulted in increased adoption of electronic shutter components in various consumer electronic devices as well as in automotive, retail, and other industries. Electronic shutter technology uses charged coupled device (CCD) and complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors for capturing digital images.

CCD image sensors are sensitive to light, have low operational noise and a central analog to digital (A/D) converter. These sensors are used majorly for industrial video applications such as CCTV systems or camcorders for capturing moving objects. CCD image sensors are of two types: frame transfer and interline CCD. Global shutter technology with CCD image sensors captures simultaneous images of the entire frame but requires an additional pixel memory which is a barrier for global Electronic Shutter Technology Market. The major drawbacks of CCD sensors include complex design, high energy consumption and a limited sensor resolution capability which results in blooming effects during overexposure.

CMOS image sensors are compact in size, consume low power and have a higher frame rate & resolution. This drives the adoption of CMOS image sensors in consumer electronics, industrial and automotive sectors for capturing high-quality images of fast-moving objects. Rolling shutter with CMOS image sensors are used in the automotive industry for drones and other unmanned aerial vehicles to capture distant images and monitor construction sites. Also, rolling CMOS shutters are used in smartphone cameras for capturing images and recording videos. Global shutter with CMOS sensors are highly sensitive to low light and noise, color fidelity and offer high-resolution images, which makes them ideal for use during various surgeries and other diagnostic procedures for capturing clear images and for security and surveillance for access control and passport checks. Furthermore, these sensors are also used in sports & entertainment for real-time recording and analysis and obtaining slow motion videos of fast movements while playing games. Also, these image sensors are used in intelligent transport system (ITS) for monitoring and controlling transport and traffic systems.
