The machine vision industry in Germany and Europe has been reporting high growth numbers and record sales figures for years. Between 2013 and 2019, sales in the German industry grew by an average of 9% per year. In 2020, the turnover of the European machine vision industry fell by 4 percent compared to the previous year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The growth prospects for the coming years remain strong with the trend towards "seeing machines" continuing over a number of years. About VDMA: The VDMA founded in 1892, represents around 3300 German and European companies in the mechanical engineering industry. As a part of the VDMA Robotics + Automation Association, VDMA Machine Vision unites about 120 members from Europe.
