First developed in the 1980s, robotic vision refers to technology that allows a robot to see. These new reports explore the robotic vision market and where it's headed.
Robot technology has come a long ways over the years. Today, there are now robots with the ability to see, using this visual information to perform other operations and/or acquire data.
Manufacturing companies, for instance, use robotic vision for a first-hand perspective of conveyor belts and assembly lines. Robots record footage of operations, after which human operators can review it for quality control purposes and more.
According to the Global Robotic Vision Market Resea…t - Forecast 2022 report by Market Research Future, the robotic vision market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 12% through the forecast period. With 110 pages, complete with tables, figures and statistics, it covers the market from all angles. The report provides a full list of market drivers, some of which include a growing demand for quality control, robustness, and the prevention of defects during the early stages of production. Furthermore, there's a growing adoption of advanced robotic technology in the manufacturing industry. All of these factors are believed to play a role in the strong growth predicted for the robotic vision market.
Of course, some regions will likely experience stronger growth than others. This report cites Asia Pacific as being the dominating region through the forecast period, which is largely due to its widespread deployment of vision technology in manufacturing and process control. North America, however, is a close second, with many manufacturing and automotive companies using robotic vision technology in their day-to-day operations.
The Robotic Vision Market by Component … Forecast to 2020 by ReportsnReports is a second comprehensive report on the robotic vision market, although it emphasizes segmentation with forecast data through 2020. This report claims manufacturing companies in Germany are investing heavily in robotic vision technology to improve the quality of their products. Also, the use of robotic vision in firefighting is experiencing strong growth -- a trend that will likely continue. These are just a few of the many factors driving the robotic vision market. For a complete list, check out the two reports mentioned above.
