ARC Advisory Group research on the global machine vision systems market highlights a trend toward robotics and smart manufacturing as consumers demand goods without defects or errors

New ARC Advisory Group research on the global Machine Vision (MV) Systems market reveals a trend toward robotics and smart manufacturing. The group says that consumers demand goods without defects or errors and that machine vision technology can be applied to recognize objects and physical characteristics accurately and reliably. Machine vision has gradually replaced quality inspection performed by humans in many applications.

Manufacturers employ machine vision technology to improve product quality and consistency, increase productivity and support traceability.

“Machine vision can ensure that a product meets specified tolerances, is packaged correctly, and contains no flaws," said Anju Ajaykumar, analyst at ARC and key author of its Machine Vision Systems Global Market Research report. "Implementation of MV technology early in the production line can help avoid costly errors down the line. Global demand for quality drives the market, particularly in the food & beverage, automotive, and pharmaceutical & biotech industries."

This research explores current and historical market performance and related technology and business trends, identifies leading technology suppliers and provides five-year global forecasts for the machine vision systems market. The research includes competitive analysis, plus five-year market forecasts by industry, region, hardware type, application, dimension, revenue category, sales channels and customers.
