Global Machine Vision and Vision Guided Robotics Market (2010-2015) - 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.
