The article presents findings of an analysis by consulting firm Frost and Sullivan according to which the world machine vision inspection systems industry generated revenues totaling $1.12 billion in 2002. With the industry working toward making machine vision technology irreplaceable in the inspection and quality control processes, research and development budgets are likely to be strained. End users want systems based on technology that is more robust, with greater potential applications. With processes in the automotive, electronic, semiconductor, food and pharmaceutical industries requiring more high-technology vision systems, products that have greater flexibility, the ability to inspect multiple parts and handle product changeovers seamlessly and efficiently without major reprogramming are in demand.
