Machine vision is an automated technology where images are captured and transferred to the PC and processed thereafter, for inspection and reporting of the processed results. These systems have increasingly become more powerful while at the same time easy to use. Recent advancements in the machine vision technology, such as smart cameras and vision guided robotics, has increased the scope of the machine vision market for a wider application in the industrial and non-industrial sectors. Asia Pacific market is expected to grow faster. The European market is expected to grow better than the U.S. mainly due to the impact of the recent economic crisis in the U.S.
Traffic and security are the two application areas having high growth potential. The applications such as automatic number plate recognition, traffic flow monitoring, traffic surveillance and other related applications are witnessing more integration and utilization of machine vision systems. In the recent economic turmoil, badly hit application areas such as automotive and semiconductors are witnessing less demand, while medical and infrastructure industries are witnessing steady growth. The report also analyzes the impact of infrastructure slow down on the machine vision market.

The machine vision system and component market has advanced very fast to meet the growing demand for traditional and non-traditional applications areas. Advancement in processing capabilities has made the machine vision systems more powerful; coupled with the development of smart camera and new interfaces. These advancements have also increased processing power, reduced cost and operational complexities, thereby increasing the scope of machine vision technology for a wider application. The global machine vision system and components market is estimated to reach $9,830.4 million in 2010; growing at an estimated CAGR of 9.3% from 2010 to 2015.
Amongst all the market segments, the optics, lighting & frame grabbers commanded the largest share in terms of revenues in 2010, while camera & smart camera came second in terms of revenues. However, camera & smart camera is the fastest growing market, growing at a CAGR of 10.2% from 2010 to 2015, due to the higher demand for smart camera because of its lower cost of the system and easy to install and use. Processor, software, and hardware market is expected to reach $3,641.6 million in 2015 with an estimated CAGR of 8.8% from 2010 to 2015.
At present, Asia Pacific region dominates the global machine vision system & component market, which is also the fastest growing region, at a double digit CAGR of 11.1% from 2010 to 2015 and this trend is expected to continue in the forecasted period as well; followed by North American region, the second largest market for machine vision, which occupied market share of 32.2% of the overall market in 2010. However, ROW was the smallest market for machine vision system & components in 2010.
