Development trend of application, technology and interface of industrial camera

through cooperation with vision systems design and inspect, framos company of Germany has made a market survey on the development trend, interface and future development of industrial camera technology. In the survey, 52 users and 8 manufacturers were interviewed, of which 55% were from Europe, 23% from north and South America, and 22% from Asia/the Middle East. The survey results were announced at the vision2016 conference held in Stuttgart. Europe ranks first in terms of procurement and production, accounting for 62% and 43% of the market share respectively. Manufacturers also produce in Asia (13 per cent) and the United States (6 per cent). After Europe, Asia should take necessary measures during the exemption period. It has the same strong procurement market as the United States, each accounting for 28% of the market share. Compared with 2015, the market share of the United States in terms of production fell to 28%, which may also be affected by the small number of manufacturers participating in the survey in North and South America

camera manufacturers said that from the perspective of sales, measurement and logistics accounted for 50% and 13% of the market share respectively; Production automation and quality assurance applications each account for 63% of the market share; Medical diagnosis and scientific application also account for 38% of the market share respectively. The survey data from industrial camera users also show similar results: 48% of cameras are used in the field of automation, 46% in quality assurance applications, 40% in the field of measurement, and 29% in scientific applications. Medical diagnostic applications account for 10% of user camera deployment. Transportation Applications (including vehicle auxiliary systems) are also an important market for manufacturers to realize the commissioning of 30000 tons of Chongqing differentiated spandex project in the first phase, but for users, this market is not very important

as in previous years, camera manufacturers and system developers have seen the continuous growth of the image processing and machine vision industry, and 90% of users intend to launch or replace existing devices in the next two years

camera pricing

for the production proportion of medium price industrial cameras between US dollars, in the manufacturer's production roadmap, it has steadily decreased from as high as 70% in 2014 to 44%, indicating that the price has been relatively stable after continuous decline in previous years. For low-cost cameras below $150, the production proportion of manufacturers and the purchase proportion of users are 26% and 11% respectively, which are relatively less important. Compared with 2015, high priced cameras decreased by 12 percentage points from US $650/us $1000/us $3000 (see Figure 1). Therefore, for the following small camera manufacturers, it seems to be a strong selling point and market advantage to produce customized cameras for specific applications after 2020

cmos compared with CCD

because Sony stopped producing CCD image sensors, users have witnessed the huge growth of the performance of ansenmey semiconductor and other companies. At present, ansenmey has a 29% share in this market. In last year's research, the expected decline of Sony users and manufacturers did not come true. At present, there are still 3 camera manufacturers that weigh 20% to 2% less than traditional seats that rely on Sony. In the next two years, Sony is expected to return to the market share level before it announced the shutdown of CCD: 37%. Compared with 2015, more users chose Sony in 2016, and the proportion of users increased from 35% in 2015 to 53% in 2016

camera manufacturers point out that CMOS technology accounts for 85% of camera sales. Camera users are expected to reach this purchasing level in the next two years. Today, 51% of users use CMOS, but this proportion is expected to grow to 83% soon. With the gradual replacement of CCD technology, e2v will benefit from camera manufacturers (from 3% to 12%) and custom sensors (from 4% to 19%), both of which have shown equally positive predictions

in 2015, about 30% of users used sensors below 1million pixels, but in 2016, this proportion fell to only 10%. The significant decline in the use of 1-megapixel sensors has led to an increase in the use of 1-3 megapixel products (an increase of 10%), 3-5 megapixel products (an increase of 2%) and 5-10 megapixel products (an increase of 3%). In the next two years, manufacturers and users are expected to focus on applications with frame rates between 25-60fps. At the same time, compared with 2015, applications with a frame rate of more than 100fps (for users: an increase of 13%) and 200fps (for manufacturers: an increase of 14%) began to increase significantly

standard interface

survey data from camera manufacturers show that GigE vision is currently the most popular interface standard (33%), followed by Ethernet (15%). Compared with 2015, due to the low participation of the United States, the proportion of Ethernet interface standards with a high proportion in the past is declining. Both camera manufacturers and users expect that USB3.0 and gigvision will usher in the fastest growth, with market growth rates of 8% and 10% respectively

today, more than 75% of manufacturers and 60% of users believe that 5GB or higher bandwidth has become crucial. For the choice of interface for high-speed applications, first from the feedback of camera manufacturers: 50% of manufacturers believe that USB 3.1 is the most important interface required for high-speed applications; 38% of manufacturers believe that 10gige is an ideal choice for high-speed applications. Let's take a look at the feedback from users: 44% of users support high-speed transmission through 10gige; The proportion of users who support high-speed transmission through usb3.1 is 37%
