Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “GigE Camera Market by Type (Line and Area), Imaging Technology (CMOS, CCD), Application (Pharmaceutical, Security & Surveillance, Transportation, Automotive, Defense, Packaging ) and Geography – Global Forecast to 2020” report to their offering.

The total GigE camera market is expected to reach $1.2 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 12.27% between 2015 and 2020. Sony Corporation (Japan) dominates the CMOS sensor segment for GigE cameras, whereas Teledyne Dalsa (Canada) dominates the overall market.

GigE cameras are used for capturing high speed images, video, and related data over Ethernet networks using low cost standard cables such as CAT 5 and CAT 6. The GigE cameras are broadly classified into CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) technology based cameras. The CMOS-based GigE cameras are currently gaining market share over CCD cameras because of their improved image quality, resolution, and lower cost compared to CCD- sensor based cameras. CMOS basically has a high price/performance ratio compared to CCD sensors. Areas scan GigE cameras are more significantly being used for the non-manufacturing segment, while line cameras find a major application in the manufacturing segment.

Among all GigE camera-based applications, security and surveillance is expected to be the largest contributor to the overall GigE camera market, accounting for a -26% share of the non-manufacturing segment, in 2014. The Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) application is estimated to have the highest growth potential and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.84 % from 2015 to 2020 in market.

The market for non-manufacturing GigE camera applications such as medical imaging, security and surveillance, and intelligent transportation system is dominated by North America region; therefore, this region also dominates the GigE cameras market for non-manufacturing applications as GigE cameras are used in various ITS applications such as electronic tolling, speed enforcement, and travel time information.

Some of the major players in the market are Teledyne Dalsa, Inc. (Canada), Basler AG (Germany), Allied Vision GmbH (Germany), Jai (Denmark), Point Grey Research, Inc. (Canada), Baumer Optronic GmbH (Germany), Matrox Electronic Systems Ltd (Canada), Qualitas Technologies Pvt Ltd (India), Sony Corporation (Japan) and Toshiba Teli Corporation (Japan).
