Surface Vision and inspection system are used for the consistent inspection and monitoring of surface, and surveillance applications. Surface vision and inspection searches for cracks, textures, holes, joints, dents, and scratches occur during the process of manufacturing and cross-border transportation. Automated vision inspection systems are designed to cater to a wide range of components and can be used for packaging, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, machine builders, automotive, sorting manufacturing, and other automation and robotic applications. Automated surface vision and inspection allow for the detection of defects by image analysis, which is then compared with the predetermined patterns to decide whether the inspecting element is defective or not defective. Surface vision and inspection systems help in an increase in production efficiency, waste reduction, and minimizes production costs, which surge the demand of the surface vision inspection market.
Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic outbreak
The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has disrupted many industries, including the automation and manufacturing industries. In the manufacturing industry, the mass production activities have led to reduction of the overall operational cost. However, it enhances the probability of defects and errors thereby making the surface vision inspection systems essential for high product quality.
The pharmaceutical and medical equipment companies are adopting surface and vision inspection equipment to match the increasing demand the medical equipment and pharmaceutical products during the COVID-19 impact. It also helps to maintain the regulation regarding food quality and drug safety. Moreover, in some sectors such as food and beverages, semiconductors and others, the demand for surface vision and inspection is also increasing due to the demand for better quality products. Hence, due to the COVID-19 impact, the market is projected to increase by nearly 200-300 BPS in Q4 2020, as compared to 2019.
Surface Vision and Inspection Market: Drivers and Restraints
There is an increasing adoption of 3D surface vision and inspection system as compare to the 2D surface vision and inspection system. 3D machine vision technology is most commonly used for three-dimensional measurement and inspection of the complex free-formed surface. 3D surface vision and inspection can be used for medical device inspection, robot vision, glass scanning, PCB checks, automated pick and place, surface inspection, and machined component inspection, and sub-assembly verification inspection. 3D technology in surface vision and inspection is used because it provides higher relevancy due to integrated optics and lighting, volumetric measurement for the position, shapes related parameters, and more ease to build multi-sensor setups for large object inspection.
Moreover, the increasing innovation and the application of new technologies are essential to improve the performance of products, in the medical industry. Surface vision and inspection system applications within the medical industry can benefit from the precise performance of the vision systems for traceability and defect detection. The demand for surface vision and inspection system in the medical industry is boosting the market growth.
