The author ponders on the economic status of the machine-vision industry in 2009. He shares that several machine-vision companies in Europe and North America have reduced workforce and cut their expenditures. It is inferred that the adoption of original equipment manufacturers' components and subsystems help in the growth of image-processing and machine-vision markets. According to editor Andy Wilson, development in image sensors aid the expansion of machine vision.
