Global Surface Inspection Market Report 2020-2025 - Growing Interest in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Superior Quality Inspections Present Opportunities -

DUBLIN--()--The "Surface Inspection Market by Component (Camera, Frame Grabber, Processor, Software), Surface Type (2D and 3D), System (Computer System and Camera System), Deployment Type (Traditional, Robotic Cell), Vertical, and Geography - Global Forecast to 2025" report has been added to's offering.

The global surface inspection market is expected to grow from USD 3.7 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 5.3 billion by 2025; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period.

The main driver for this market is the growing demand for quality assurance and automation. This is because labor wages are increasing, and companies are reducing the cost through automation. Also, human error is reduced by automation and speed is increased. The main restraint for the surface inspection market is the dearth of technically skilled individuals creating the problem of proper integration of these systems in the various industries.

The customer needs in this market keep changing, requiring workers to be trained to handle the new systems. Highly skilled individuals are a key requirement to handle surface inspection systems with high end and frequently changing features. The workers need to understand machine signals and work for hand in hand with collaborative robots, where surface inspection systems are mounted on robots.

Robotic cells are expected to grow at a higher CAGR than traditional surface inspection systems during the forecast period.

Robotic cells are expected to grow at a higher CAGR than traditional inspection systems during the forecast period. Robotic cells offer various advantages such as higher flexibility, accuracy, ease of handling several inspection points and ability to inspect difficult to reach inspection points. The main advantage of robotic cells is the ability to handle various product variants. The robotic cell inspects the work item from 360-degrees like a human being, making inspection independent of the shape and size of the work item.

Camera systems are expected to grow at higher CAGR than computer systems.

A smart camera-based system has an integration of imager to capture images, intelligent processor to process and analyze the images, lighting, and cables for input & output capabilities. This integration makes camera systems more cost-effective and compact than computer systems. Fewer moving components and rare high temperatures make the camera system more reliable and reduce maintenance costs by preventing downtime. Camera systems come with pre-packaged algorithms that are not required to be developed further, thereby providing quicker setup.

The market in the US held the largest share of the surface inspection market by 2020.

The United States is the premier market for industries due to an open investment policy, a large consumer market, a highly skilled workforce, availability of infrastructure, and local and state government incentives. The automotive and semiconductor industries are the largest beneficiaries of surface inspection systems. According to SIA, the US semiconductor industry is the worldwide leader with a global market share of nearly 45%.

According to the International Trade Administration, total foreign direct investment in the US automotive industry reached USD 114.6 billion in 2018, and the US has become the world's second-largest market for vehicle sales and production. Healthcare is another prominent industry in the US. The country is also a hub for the IT industry, providing good support to surface inspection companies for the integration of artificial intelligence.
