IMVE publishes article "Keeping Up With Consolidation" by Pierre Cambou, Yole Developpement image sensor analyst. There is a nice chart showing the large historical mergers and acquisitions:

"For the source of future M&A, one should rather look toward the decent number of machine vision sensor technology start-ups, companies like Softkinetic, which was purchased by Sony in 2015, and Mesa, which was acquired by Ams, in 2014. There are a certain number of interesting start-ups right now, such as PMD, Chronocam, Fastree3D, SensL, Sionyx, and Invisage. Beyond the start-ups, and from a global perspective, there is little room for a greater number of deals at sensor level, because almost all players have recently been subject to M&A."
