reduced sensor size

I wonder why canon reduce the size of image sensor on their newer products, my powershot S400 & G2 with 1/1.8" sensor still serve me well and give much less noise and better image than my PSA620 and SD1100 which have 1/2.7" sensor, especially in low light conditions, unfortunately the older cameras have very limited video recording so I have to put them on shelves when traveling

Most current powershots go with 1/2.3" or worse 1/2.7" only G10 has a slightly better 1/1.7" Why did canon decide to reduce the sensor size of the powershot series? I think sensor size is not a trade off for cost production
