Machine vision components and system sales up 10 per cent

Share this on social media:

Total sales of machine vision components and systems grew 10 per cent in first quarter of 2014, according to new statistics issued by AIA, the industry’s trade group. Every component and system category increased over the quarter but cameras, lighting, and software led the way with an increase of 36, 32, and 25 per cent respectively.

Total machine vision sales include sales of machine vision components and systems. Total machine components grew 29 per cent in the first quarter, while total machine vision systems grew six per cent. These results are in contrast to what we saw last year, when machine vision systems led the way in terms of growth.

‘We’re pleased to see such a positive start to the year for machine vision sales in North America,’ said AIA president Jeff Burnstein. ‘It’s particularly promising to see machine vision components post such a strong quarter, and we’re hopeful that continues throughout the year.’

‘Our most recent survey of industry experts shows that AIA membership is indeed optimistic about machine vision components,’ added Alex Shikany, AIA’s director of market analysis. ‘Respondents expect every component category, except for imaging boards, to grow over the next six months.’
