Computer Vision Market
Computer Vision Market

The global Computer Vision Market is expected to grow at a growth rate of around 10% during the forecast period. The computer vision market is uplifting on the account of the rapid adoption of computer vision systems in the automotive and transportation industry and the increasing need for quality inspection and automation. Computer vision is the study of how computers see and understand digital images and videos. Computer vision encompasses all tasks performed by biological vision systems. This includes “seeing” or capturing visual stimuli, understanding what you see, and extracting complex information into a form that can be used in other processes. This interdisciplinary field uses sensors, computers, and machine learning algorithms to simulate and automate these elements of the human visual system. Computer vision is the theory underlying the ability of artificially intelligent systems to see and understand their surroundings. Moreover, factors such as the growing demand for vision-guided robotic systems, rising demand for application-specific computer vision systems, increasing adoption of 3D computer vision systems, and the growing investment in AI research and development are also influencing the growth of the computer vision market. For instance, in 2020, the UK government gave USD 23.11 Mn (20 Mn GBP) funding boost to AI research. The aim of the funding was to support 15 innovative AI projects ranging from early cancer detection to clinical support and wearable medical devices.

Some of the major players operating in the market include Cognex Corporation, Basler AG, Omron Corporation, Keyence Corporation, National Instruments Corp, Sony Group Corporation, Teledyne Technologies Incorporated, Texas Instruments Incorporated, Intel Corporation, and MediaTek Inc. are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.
