EMVA Market Report 2017 “Machine Vision in France” published
Comprehensive evaluation of French machine vision market
The European Machine Vision Association (EMVA) has published its 2017 Market Report “Machine Vision in France”. The 56 page report maps the machine vision activities in France in all its facets. It covers the machine vision industry, their customers as well as technical and commercial trends. In addition, the “eco system” for machine vision is described, including clusters, research centers and associations, trade shows and special magazines. This is being supplemented by market and growth drivers and an estimate of the market volume.
The report identifies more than 440 players in the French machine vision market, including manufacturers of components and systems, integrators, direct sellers and distributors as well as a long list of universities and research institutes with strong vision competence. All of them are listed by name and website in the report.
“Integrators play an important role in the industrial implementation of machine vision in the French machine vision market. Also, with no dominant component manufacturing scene the role of national distributors and direct sales of components from international players is quite distinguished in France. In addition, due to the overall structure of the French economy national customers of vision technology tend to be either rather small or big corporate entities such as from the aerospace, military or the automotive sector, leaving a gap in the SME sector that is quite strong in other European countries”, says Andreas Breyer, EMVA’s Director of Market Research and adds: “The distinctive strength France shows in the research sector is remarkable. More than 40 percent of the players we identified are active in machine vision or computer vision research or education.”
With the current 2017 market report the EMVA continues the strategy to investigate the European markets through the eyes of the machine vision industry. EMVA non-members can obtain the pdf-report at a price of € 345,- plus VAT.
