Automated Optical Inspection System Market Introduction

Automated optical inspection (AOI) is a leading technique used in manufacturing and testing electronics printed circuit boards (PCBs). An automated optical inspection system enables quick and precise inspection of electronics assemblies, particularly PCBs to ensure error-free and optimal quality products. Despite numerous advancements, modern circuits are more complicated than traditionally used boards.

Automated Optical Inspection System Market Dynamics

Burgeoning Adoption of Smart Gadgets Bringing Traction to Automated Optical Inspection System Market

The growing trend of small and highly sophisticated electronic gadgets has prompted the consumer electronics manufacturing firms to incorporate novel technologies into devices. Consequently, companies are incorporating new technologies, such as tiny passive components, powerful and energy-efficient ICs, and sensors. The growing consumer preference for multifunctional devices has altered the architecture of modern electronics, further making electronic devices more complex. This increased complexity of devices has triggered the penetration of high tech automated optical inspection systems in manufacturing and production processes. Furthermore, with the growing adoption of 3D inspection technology, manufacturers are increasingly utilizing automated optical inspection systems for the key role of maintaining high-quality standards with complex consumer electronic devices.

Lack of Awareness & Presence of False Call Rates Impeding Adoption of Automated Optical Inspection Systems

Lack of awareness about smart inspection machines, such as automated optical inspection systems is a leading factor limiting the growth opportunities for stakeholders. Furthermore, the growing presence of false call rates once an automated optical inspection system is deployed, is also hindering the adoption of such systems. The increased false call rates hamper the coverage of component detection area, thereby hitting the production line efficiency badly. All automated optical inspection systems include a pre-defined detection area capacity and number of call rates. However, surge in these numbers thwarts the machine performance by providing incorrect inspection data. Several companies in the automated optical inspection system market are manufacturing efficient AOI machines and incorporation technologies, including computer-aided design and manufacturing to prevent incidence of false call rates.

Selective Soldering Applications of Automated Optical Inspection System Fueling Market Growth

In the global automated optical inspection system industry, selective soldering applications are witnessing significant popularity due to numerous benefits, such as low operational costs over traditional wave soldering substitutes. As selective soldering machines provide reliable solder joint detection, soldering process optimization, and prevent component overheating, their adoption is growing. Manufacturers are increasingly adopting these techniques to inspect soldering parts on dully and partly assembled PCBs

Developing Economies Dominate the Automated Optical Inspection System Market

The electronics sector across developing economies, such as APAC has become a world-class innovation-driven destination for production, owing to the low production cost, low-cost skilled labor, business-friendly environment, and increasing penetration of electronic devices across the region. China contributes significantly to the global electronic production, and is among the leading exporters of electronic products worldwide. The burgeoning electronics sector across APAC is contributing significantly to the pace of the automated optical inspection system market in this region.
