Market Overview

Machine Vision Market Size to Gain USD 15.46 Billion by 2022 Growing at 8.18% CAGR


Pune, Aug. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Market Research Future's in-depth market study on the Global Machine Vision Market, By Type (1D Machine, 2D Machine Vision, 3D Machine Vision), By Application (Inspection, Gauging, Guidance, Identification), By Components (Hardware, Software), By End Users (Automotive, Electronics & Semiconductor, Healthcare, Food & Packaging) - Forecast 2022.

The integration of automation in the assembly lines of manufacturing units has expedited the production rate. Machine vision (MV) systems comprise an array of methods and technologies for automated inspection and analysis of goods. It is also known as image processing. Some major applications include robot guidance and process control. The miniaturization of devices has created the need for quality checks at a such a diminutive level which can be done by MV systems.

Market Scope

The global machine vision market size is projected to nearly double to USD 15.46 billion by 2022, as per an up-to-date comprehensive report by Market Research Future (MRFR). It had an estimated valuation of USD 9,454.5 million in 2017. The quick processing ability of MV systems to check for defects in products is expected to drive market growth over the forecast period (2017-2022). Technological breakthroughs in artificial intelligence (AI) and demand for vision-guided robotic systems can bolster its demand in the forthcoming years.

The market can exhibit an 8.18% CAGR over the forecast period owing to its rapid adoption in industrial operations. Stringent government regulations prioritizing on quality and safety checks of products has spurred the need for MV systems. Lack of qualified personnel to handle these systems can act as a deterrent against market growth.
