Financial year 2023: IDS with solid growth forecasts

New hardware platform and focus on usability bring high order intake

Despite the tense procurement situation, we expect a positive turnover development and growth of 15 % for the 2023 financial year. One reason for this is a good order situation resulting from the advancing wave of automation. We also expect an improvement in supply chain bottlenecks. "Our big advantage is certainly that we are represented in almost all industries and are thus very broadly positioned," explains IDS Managing Director Alexander Lewinsky. "The demand for our products has increased particularly in the medical technology sector, which pleases us not only from an economic point of view. More and more IDS cameras are thus making a contribution to health promotion worldwide. In addition to resource conservation and environmental protection, this is an application area that is close to our hearts."

On the product side, the positive development is based on the one hand on the 3D segment, which continues to grow strongly. We see this area as a major growth driver, and accordingly the portfolio will be expanded in the current year with a new, cost-optimised series for large-volume applications.

Secondly, in the 2D segment, last year's launch of the uEye cameras with newly developed USB3 technology platform has more than proven its worth. This has made us more supplier-independent and enables us to better cushion component bottlenecks. More models with this hardware technology will follow in the coming months.

We are also intensively pushing the topic of artificial intelligence. "IDS wants to make it easier for users to access this key technology and to help initiate urgently needed automation processes with easy-to-use image processing components," emphasises IDS founder and owner Jürgen Hartmann.
