Machine vision sales grew 16 per cent in North America in the second quarter of 2011 compared to the same quarter one year earlier, according to the Quarterly Machine Vision Sales Tracking Report of the Automated Imaging Association (AIA).

The AIA report recorded robust sales across almost all major machine vision supplier markets, including cameras, lighting, optics, software, application-specific machine vision systems, and smart cameras.

The report also found that the machine vision industry continues to expect sales to stay at current levels or to increase in the next six months. Overall, only nine per cent of reporting companies expect sales to decrease.

'It is encouraging that for the sixth quarter in a row the machine vision market in North America has recorded solid year-over-year growth,' said Jeff Burnstein, president of AIA. Paul Kellett, AIA's director of market analysis, added: 'The double-digit growth of the market in 2Q 2011 is particularly impressive in view of the fact that it's based on a comparison to 2Q 2010, when the MV recovery was already in full swing.'

AIA's sales tracking report is available free of charge to all AIA members participating in AIA's sales data programme.

In addition to its sales tracking report, AIA prepares market opportunity studies, which it makes available to all AIA members free of charge on its website.
