Most of the issues originate at the very start of the production process and lead to disastrous consequences. Automatic inspection at the initial stage could prevent these issues from percolating down the production cycle. Machine vision usually uses digital input and output to manipulate mechanical processes. They can perform tasks of inspection traditionally performed by a human operator. Taking the example of automatic inspection, a sensor will detect if any product has passed by the use of motion sensors. The camera deployed along with necessary lighting arrangements capture the image of the product as required. This image is then digitized and stored in the computer for further manipulations by the software. The system breaks down the image into multiple components and tries identifying defects based on pre-determined criteria. Based on the observations, the product has either passed the initial inspection and proceeds further or failed and sent for re-evaluation.
The overall machine vision market is expected to grow from USD 8.12 Billion in 2015 to USD 14.43 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 8.15% between 2016 and 2022. The major driving factors is the increased need for automation and quality inspection across industry verticals. It has applications in visual stock control and management using barcode reading and counting. Large-scale industries use MVS at various stages of the production process for inspection and control of future stages also using robotic arms. Quality check in the food and beverage industry, medical imaging also use MVS for various purposes. However, need for rigorous training and education is an impediment to the market growth of MVS.
Based on components, the Machine Vision System market is segmented into smart camera, embedded system, lighting, lenses and frame grabber. Smart camera is the most dominant one among these due to its large market share. By application, the market is segmented into quality control, inspection, measurement, verification, positioning and identification. Further categorized into 1D, 2D and 3D measurements, of which 3D is supposed to grow at the highest pace. On the basis of end user, the market is segmented into semiconductor, healthcare, beverage, food, automobiles, consumer electronics and others.
The countries in APAC such as Japan, South Korea, India and China have started heavy automation in large manufacturing facilities, which is supposed to be a major boost for Machine Vision Systems market in the country. Geographically, the market has been segmented into North America (United States, Canada and Mexico), Asia-Pacific (China, India, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Australia and others), Europe LAMEA (Latin America, Middle East and Africa) and rest of the world.
Some of the key players in the Industry are Cognex Corporation, Keyence Corporation, Texas Instruments Inc., Omron Corporation, National Instruments Corporation, Basler AG, Intel Corporation, Canon Inc., ISRA vision AG, Microscan systems, Adept technology, Teledyne technologies Inc. among many others.
