Exclusive Market Segmentation and Identification of Nine Key Growth Segments

The machine vision market is complex, composedof myriad niche applications that are eitherindustrial or non-industrial. To simplify themachine vision market’s structure and dynamics,we’ve created a novel market segmentation thatcross-references technical and behavioral criteria.By cross-referencing technical and behavioralneeds, nine homogeneous groups of key machinevision customers have been defined.

From an industrial point-of-view, versatiledetection, versatile inspection and compact 3Dinspection will fuel most of the machine visionindustrial market’s growth, driven by new low-endapplications. From a non-industrial standpoint,all identified segments will sustain steady, highgrowth at a 15%+ CAGR; namely high-endIP surveillance, license plate recognition andautomotive safety.

This report includes a structuring segmentationto help facilitate machine vision marketcomprehension. It also highlights key growth areasand the available strategies to gain profitability ormarket share.

By 2018, The Industrial Machine Vision Market Will Reach Nearly $2B!

Total industrial machine vision sales accountedfor 1.2M cameras in 2012, a number expectedto reach $2B in 2018, at an 8% CAGR. Aftermoderate 1% growth in 2012 (a reflection of theeconomic downturn facing the global industry),an upturn is expected in the future, thanks tothe automatization trend in Asian factories,new capital expenditures in the semiconductorindustry and the emergence of new low-endapplications. Growth in the low-end segmentswill be driven by strong price erosion stemmingfrom the commoditization of machine visionsubsystems.

Machine vision players’ main challenge will be howto gain market share in the dynamic low-end marketsegments while maintaining sustainable profitability.

Concurrently, adjacent non-industrial applicationsare expected to burgeon at a double-digit rate,driving future growth.

This report includes market insights in the formof units & revenue for market segments in bothindustrial and non-industrial machine vision.Industrial machine vision market forecasts arerealized for 2013-2018 and include industrialcameras, smart cameras and vision sensors.

Fragmented Shares Will Fuel Market Consolidation

Machine vision applications’ complex diversityresulted in the emergence of a multitude of smallmachine vision camera manufacturers. Consequently,the machine vision market is very fragmented at thecamera level. On the flip side, the machine visionimage sensor market is quite concentrated due to thepresence of strong technical know-how necessary fordesigning to a specific sensor.

From a technological standpoint, industrial machinevision is mostly characterized by incrementalinnovations: subsystem manufacturers increasingresolution, frame rate and subsystem capacity. Themarket’s technological maturity makes disruptiveinnovation challenging, and minimizes any uniqueselling proposition.The combination of high fragmentation and limitedproduct differentiation has led the machine visionmarket to unavoidable commoditization, driven bystrong price competition from companies like PointGrey Research and Basler. Now that the markethas attained significant manufacturing volume, it’shighly probable that a consolidation will occur at thelow-end through successive acquisitions by marketleaders strategically positioned there.

In this report you’ll enjoy a detailed analysis ofthe machine vision value chain and supply chain,along with market share at both image sensor andsubsystem level.
