Vision Processing Unit Market Comprehensive Evaluation Of The Market Via In-Depth Qualitative Insights 2017 – 2025

Vision Processing Unit Market: Snapshot

Vision Processing Unit (VPU) refers to a dedicated processor which produces high quality of images with ambient light and also reduces the power consumption by freeing up the CPU and GPU space thereby improving the overall performance of the system in which it is implemented. The Vision Processing Unit (VPU) market is primarily driven by the increasing adoption of machine vision systems across wide range of industry verticals including consumer electronics, automotive, healthcare, and manufacturing among others.

Additionally, the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies required to program the systems is expected to assist the growth of the market. Various robots having vision capabilities are increasingly being implemented across the manufacturing and automobile industries for various purposes which include inspection of the products, quality check, assisting in the various stages of production, and security and surveillance among others.

Furthermore, the growing developments in the automobiles particularly, the autonomous vehicles is anticipated to impact the market positively. Machine Vision systems are used in the automobiles as a part of advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) which leads to improved safety while travelling. ADAS systems keep the driver aware while driving by giving inputs such as nearby vehicles, automatic braking systems, providing alerts pertaining to any objects, pedestrians, or vehicles nearby and so on. The implementation of vision processing units across all the above mentioned applications will result in high quality of images and ensure the better performance of the system.

Vision processing units also are increasingly being used in smartphones for giving an exceptional photography experience to the user. It can be seen that a large number of smartphone manufacturers are launching dual camera models to give the user with a DSLR like image quality. The use of VPU in smartphones results in low consumption of power and increased battery life. VPUs are also used in wearable cameras which are used by adventure enthusiast, police personnel and security forces for surveillance, and in medical fields by the doctor to document the medical procedures being performed on the patient. Thus, the growing demand for low power consumption system on chip (SoC) circuits which find varied applications is expected to propel the growth of the market. However, the complexity associated with the programming of the system on which VPU is incorporated is likely to be a limiting factor for the market growth in the coming years. Nonetheless, Vision Processing Unit market is expected to witness several innovative and technologically advanced products in the coming years.
