The global machine vision market revenue in 2020 is $10.28 billion and is forecast to record a 6.4% CAGR between 2020 and 2025. The market took a major hit in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with sales declining 4.6% from 2019. However, the analyst expects that market to register 3.8% growth in 2021. Positive trends in pharmaceuticals, food and beverage processing and packaging, electronics and semiconductors, and automotive will drive the market in 2021 and during the forecast period. There is a rising demand for industrial automation worldwide to enhance operations and productivity. Manufacturers are also adopting automation post-pandemic to automate their manufacturing units fully. This is to minimize human intervention should another pandemic arise in the future. Post-pandemic changes in eating habits and lifestyle enable the food and beverage manufacturing, processing, and packaging companies to grow. As food safety regulations get stricter worldwide, the food processing and manufacturing industry increasingly depends on machine vision systems for quality control. Asia-Pacific (APAC) is the biggest region for machine vision, contributing 40.6% of the global revenue in 2020 and expected to record the highest CAGR (10.3%) between 2020 and 2025. North America and Europe are the other two prominent regions with revenue shares of 28.5% and 24.5%, respectively. Vision systems and industrial cameras are the two most significant product segments with revenue shares of 48.2% and 33.3% in 2020, respectively. These will continue to be the largest product segments during the forecast period. Optics and illumination and frame grabbers are the other two product segments of the machine vision market. The electronics and semiconductor industry vertical is the biggest revenue contributor, with a 36.9% revenue share in 2020. Automotive is the second-biggest vertical, holding 22.4% of the total global revenue. The automotive vertical registered a sharp decline in 2020 but is forecast to record a 6.2% CAGR between 2020 and 2025. The machine vision market is highly fragmented and has over 100 market participants, with the top five market participants holding 19.7% of the global market share in 2020. Local manufacturers in APAC increasingly focus on food safety while global manufacturers are starting production in the region to stay close to the market and understand domestic demands. Countries such as Japan, China, South Korea, and India will drive machine vision systems adoption. Operators integrate vision systems into assembly lines for turnkey applications such as empty bottle inspection, label inspection, and barcode verification. In addition, governments and industry regulatory bodies have strict mandates on industry safety norms to which companies must adhere. For example, the United States is introducing stricter laws and regulations on food processing. Europe is a highly competitive market with the presence of leading end-user companies. Europe is at the forefront of innovation and industrial internet of things (IIoT) adoption as a manufacturing hub.
