INVN continues to enhance its software capabilities that complement its MEMS sensors. The company aspires to become a total sensing solution provider rather than a commodity parts supplier. Management reiterated that OIS will remain a growth driver for the top line, as better image capturing ability is a top differentiation for most smartphone OEMs (especially Chinese OEMs).”
Furthermore, “With continued growth in smart mobile electronics and market expansion of motion sensors, InvenSense has enjoyed rapid market share gain across all major OEMs. But we believe with continuous pressure on gross margin and potential share loss to competition, caution is necessary.”
