«Machine vision technology & market trends», a new report from Yole Développement.
Yole Développement announces its Machine Vision Technology & Market trends report. Yole Développement’s report provides a complete analysis on machine vision market, including segmentation and market forecasts 2013-2018, detailed value chain and supply chain. It also focuses on machine vision technology’s evolution: CCD vs. CMOS/3D imaging/BSI/hyperspectral.
Exclusive market segmentation and identification of nine key growth segments
From an industrial point-of-view, versatile detection, versatile inspection and compact 3D inspection will fuel most of the machine vision industrial market’s growth, driven by new low-end applications. From a non-industrial standpoint, all identified segments will sustain steady, high growth at a 15%+ CAGR; namely high-end IP surveillance, license plate recognition and automotive safety.
Yole Développement’s report includes a structuring segmentation to help facilitate machine vision market comprehension. It also highlights key growth areas and the available strategies to gain profitability or market share.
By 2018, the industrial machine vision market will reach nearly $2B!
Concurrently, adjacent non-industrial applications are expected to burgeon at a double-digit rate, driving future growth.
Yole Développement’s report includes market insights in the form of units & revenue for market segments in both industrial and non-industrial machine vision. Industrial machine vision market forecasts are realized for 2013-2018 and include industrial cameras, smart cameras and vision sensors.
Fragmented shares will fuel market consolidation
From a technological standpoint, industrial machine vision is mostly characterized by incremental innovations: subsystem manufacturers increasing resolution, frame rate and subsystem capacity. The market’s technological maturity makes disruptive innovation challenging, and minimizes any unique selling proposition.
The combination of high fragmentation and limited product differentiation has led the machine vision market to unavoidable commoditization, driven by strong price competition from companies like Point Grey Research and Basler. Now that the market has attained significant manufacturing volume, it’s highly probable that a consolidation will occur at the low-end through successive acquisitions by market leaders strategically positioned there.
In Yole Développement’s report you’ll enjoy a detailed analysis of the machine vision value chain and supply chain, along with market share at both image sensor and subsystem level.
