Sensors are exponentially more expensive the larger they are. The sensor in an iPhone costs probably less than a dollar, but a full-frame sensor goes for several hundred and a medium format sensor perhaps several thousand. The risk of mistakes grows exponentially the larger the sensor is, and thus so does the cost. Just the way it is.
