FARMINGTON, Conn., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- A considerable shift in scanning technology adoption is underway. While the use of laser scanners is increasingly being limited to specific vertical & application environments, linear and camera-based imaging solutions have grown in popularity particularly given the following benefits: improved performance characteristics; better price competitiveness; increased availability; and enhanced education, training and support. Traditional market leaders will face increased pricing pressures from regionally focused, local vendors, particularly in Asia-Pacific (Chinese and Korean). In light of these market constraints, it will become increasingly important for vendors like Motorola, Honeywell and Datalogic to build a local presence in developing economies in order to stave off the growing competition.
The market for general purpose handheld scanning and imaging solution is expected to far out-perform that for industrial-grade devices, with a CAGR of over 9.5% through 2016. This growth will result from a combination of three forces: 1) market growth and expansion opportunity in non-traditional vertical markets including Government and Health Care Services; 2) increased adoption of non-ruggedized scanners in light industrial operating environments; and 3) an absence of moving parts to misalign/break in non-laser scanning solutions leading to decreased need for ruggedization.
This report covers three categories in the handheld barcode label scanner market: laser scanners, linear imagers (e.g. CCD readers), and 2-D/Camera-based technology. The complete research program provides market definitions and segmentation maps; market estimates and forecasts from 2011 through 2016; competitive position, share and direction; customer requirements, preferences and investment plans; channel and other ecosystem participant capabilities and more.

Embedded Systems Integration Services
The embedded services market will grow at a 5.7% CAGR through 2016. However, the service market will experience constrained growth in 2012 due to the macroeconomic landscape. As tumult from the European debt markets ebb and with US debt and budget legislation resolutions on the horizon, the embedded services market should exceed 10.1 billion in 2016.
From a technical standpoint, cloud computing and virtualization are among the technologies that are driving the need for OEM and embedded services. As a result, OEM5 will increasingly look for suppliers with technical expertise that extends beyond the embedded hardware. Therefore, VDC believes that gaining this expertise internally or through partnerships or acquisitions is imperative.
This research program provides granular data and detailed analysis on the biggest issues and trends in the embedded hardware market in order to help clients identify, define, prioritize, plan and attack the best market opportunities. In order to help clients fully apply the research, clients also receive analyst inquiry time commentary on specific decisions and strategies for their company, have a deeper-dive conversation related to a specific issue or trends covered in the research or a discuss the definitions, assumptions and methodologies driving the segmentation models and forecasts in the report.
