Combining the best parts of DSLRs and the compacts (interchangeable lenses and small size), MILS has become the fasted growing segment in the digital camera market. While sensors can range from compact size to APS-C and even full frame, the majority of models come with either Four Thirds or APS-C sized sensors. 

Olympus and Panasonic(the two companies that started the whole mirrorless business back in 2008) use Four Thirds sensors (17.3 x 13 mm), Nikon uses 1" CX sensors (13.2 x 8.8 mm), and Sony, Samsung, Fujifilm, and Canon use APS-C sensors. 

Here is an illustration comparing different sensor sizes:
