The computer vision market continues to gain momentum. Cameras in mobile devices and cameras added to consumer, commercial, and industrial products are being leveraged. Software algorithms for computer vision are improving. Deep learning and convolutional neural networks (CNNs) are continuing to evolve to leverage large amounts of visual information. Furthermore, computer vision’s application to video, and not just static images, is expanding its real-world utility.

Across the value chain, there are large intellectual property (IP), semiconductor, hardware, software vendors, and system integrators that are well known for their computer vision-related products and services. There also exists a long tail of smaller companies and startups that are not well-known globally, some of which remain busy enough with business in their home countries that they have no immediate plans to expand globally. The flashier applications continue to dominate major news headlines, as usual. Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), drones, and robotics are typical areas that receive both industry media and mass consumer media coverage. Some applications that are widely used in the consumer space, such as the modifications and additions to photos and videos taken with front-facing cameras (selfies), use computer vision to identify key facial features and track them as they move. Computer vision applied to security cameras is quickly becoming one of the more ubiquitous applications of the technology in the civil, commercial, and consumer realms.  Tractica forecasts that the total market for computer vision hardware, software, and services will grow from $1.1 billion in 2016 to $26.2 billion by 2025.
