3D machine vision market is expected to be worth USD 1.63 Billion by 2020, growing at an estimated CAGR of 10.53% between 2015 and 2020. It holds a great potential across the automation industry. It is mainly used for the quality assurance and inspection applications to provide more accuracy in the manufacturing procedures and for proper inspection in detecting flaws.

Healthcare accounted for the largest share among all non-industrial verticals of the market, followed by postal & logistics in 2014. The 3D medical imaging and lab automation inspection is leading the healthcare sector. In the logistics segment, 3D machine vision is expected to find high opportunities in bin picking and placing during the forecast period. It is also being used for postal sorting, parcel counting, and for the measurement of dimensions of the parcels.

The market for the positioning & guidance is expected to grow at the highest rate since 3D machine vision tools help to find the object and report its position and orientation; this application is mainly used by robots in various industries.

3D Machine Vision Market

APAC accounted for the largest share of the 3D machine vision market in 2014; the market in the region is expected to grow at a high CAGR between 2015 and 2020. Increasing consumer electronics and automotive manufacturing activities are driving this market in the APAC region.

One of the key restraining factors in this market is the lack of awareness and technical knowledge about the 3D machine vision technology. It is necessary to make it clear that how efficiently customers can gain several benefits from the use of 3D machine vision technology. Keyence Corp is among the leading players in 3D machine vision and is involved in direct sales and manufactures automation sensors, vision systems, barcode readers, measuring instruments, and digital microscopes. The major strategy adopted by this company is new product development to expand its presence in the market.
