Surface Vision and Inspection Equipment Market

Global market for Surface Vision and Inspection Equipment is projected to surpass US$2.2 billion by 2020, driven by the strict implementation of production control standards in a bid to ensure the production of safe and high-quality products.

Mounting competitive and pricing pressures are necessitating manufacturers across the world to focus on improving production efficiencies, enhance product quality, and reduce costs. The scenario is benefitting investments in advanced automation technologies that bring innovative capabilities in augmenting manufacturing line efficiency and enhancing product quality, while delivering cost and time-to-market benefits. Against this backdrop, growing in popularity is automated surface vision and inspection, an innovative surface quality control technique for determining the presence and/or absence of characteristics as per the pre-defined specifications for surfaces of a product. The equipment analyzes the surfaces of materials, parts and components to accurately identify bubbles, flaws, spots, scratches, tears, cracks, and other imperfections to improve and enhance the surface quality of the final product. The semiconductor industry constitutes the largest as well as the fastest growing end-use sector. Automotive and electronics & electrical products are the other major end-use sectors, where demand for surface inspection equipment remains visibly high. In addition, the equipment also finds use in surface inspection of pharmaceutical products/packaging, metals, glass, paper, rubber, plastics, wood products, and printing among others.
