Vision Sensor Market 2019 Global Size, Share, Industry Growth, Development Status, Opportunities, Company Profile and Trends by Forecast 2023

“” Vision Sensor Market “”
The global Vision Sensor Market was valued at USD 1.86 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 3.87 billion by the end of the forecast period with a CAGR of 13.43%.

Market Synopsis

Vision sensors are installed in factories and enterprises to enable the operators to inspect images for smooth process flow. Vision sensors are deployed with specific applications or systems which can make object pass/fail decisions, support human-machine interface (HMI) development and communicate with the factory floor. These sensors are easy to integrate with larger systems, offer built-in Ethernet communications, and enable single-point and multiple-point inspections with dedicated processing. Vision sensors make use of images captured by cameras to recognize the presence, accuracy, and orientation of the object. Vision sensors are extensively used in machine vision which experiences high demand in the industrial sector. These sensors have various applications in the food and packaging industry as this sector invests heavily in machine vision solutions to optimize process flow and reduce waste by removing non-saleable products. Growth of Industry 4.0 is one of the major factors driving the vision sensor market. Implementing machine vision provides advantages such as refining product quality, decreasing operating costs, and enhancing manufacturing flexibility.
