Machine Vision Global Market – Overview

Machine Vision or MV can be described as electronic imaging used for the purposes of inspection, process control, and automatic guidance. MV as a term encompasses a large number of technologies, software and hardware products, integrated systems, actions, methods and expertise. In MV applications, computers use imaging technologies to capture images as input for the purposes of extracting and delivering information output. Apart from conventional Industrial Applications, Machine Vision capabilities are used in AR/VR, advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS), and Smart Security Systems to achieve advanced digital-imaging capabilities that deliver well in low-light, or no-light, conditions, consume less battery power, all at once, without  interfering with human activity. Machine Vision (MV) is gaining a huge traction currently and MV Market is growing with the rapid pace mainly due to the burgeoning demand for image processing attributed to the Miniaturization trend of optical and electronic products or devices.
