Machine Vision Market

Market Segmentation

Insight by Offering

The global machine vision market is separated into hardware and software, based on offer. The hardware category dominated the market in 2021, and during the forecast period, it is projected to increase more quickly. 

Insight by Product

The global machine vision market is divided into two categories based on product: PC-based and smart-camera-based. The PC-based category held the largest market share in 2021, and it is expected to continue dominating the industry throughout the study period. However, during the projected period, the demand for smart camera-based systems is projected to increase at the quickest rate in the coming years. This is because 3D imaging uses cameras more frequently now.

Insight by Application

The positioning & guiding, identification, measurement, and quality assurance & inspection applications make up the worldwide machine vision market. The quality assurance & inspection category dominated the market during the research period and be the largest among all categories in the coming years. However, during the projected period, the identification category is expected to develop at the quickest rate. This is due to the numerous benefits and opportunities provided by technology on a global scale.

Insight by End User

The automotive, electronics and semiconductor, pharmaceuticals and chemicals, pulp and paper, food and beverage (packaging and bottling), postal and logistics, printing and labeling, and glass and metal sectors are key end users in the worldwide machine vision market. The automotive sector accounts for the largest market share, and it is anticipated to continue dominating the industry throughout the study period.

In the automobile sector, machine vision is mostly used for inspection tasks such as absence or presence verification, assembly confirmation, error proofing, and final inspection. In addition, dimensional gauging, robotic guidance, and testing automation are further uses of machine vision systems that fall under the category of gauge, measure, and guide applications.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers

The surging adoption of 3D machine vision systems, the increasing demand for quality control and automation, the rising need for vision-guided robotics systems, the growing inspection in the food and packaging industries, and the increasing demand for ASICs are the main factors propelling the growth of the global machine vision market.

Globally, manufacturers want to boost their investments in automation following COVID-19. Additionally, as companies have come to understand the value of automated quality assurance in manufacturing processes, the demand for this technology has grown. The COVID-19 epidemic has accelerated the deployment of automation since it requires fewer human interventions in the process. This broadens the perception of machine vision as a necessary component of processes for developing long-term automation.


The biggest challenge for machine vision producers is likely a lack of adaptable machine vision solutions and a shortage of experienced workers in production facilities. 


The market offers several opportunities to players, due to the following reasons:

• Increasing need for machine vision applications of artificial intelligence (AI)

• Rising production of hybrid and electric vehicles

• Government programs to advance technology connected to AI
