The machine vision industry is diverse with applications ranging from robotic guidance to bio-metrics. Industrial manufacturers are currently automating using machine vision to improve quality while reducing cost, and of course to enable process control. One large sector in the area of web and sheet inspection. Key sectors include the plastic film extrusion industry, the flexible packaging industry, converters of high value products such as film and foil, metal decorating, the label printing industry, the building and decorative products industry, the non-woven and technical composites industries. These sectors produce high volume, capital intensive products in roll and sheet formats. The annual market potential for machine vision in the roll and sheet sectors exceeds €250,000,000 and like all other machine vision sectors is experiencing strong growth with CAGRs in some niches up to 15% .
