Global automated optical inspection market is expected to USD 1,921 Million by 2025, at a CAGR of 26.7% from 2018 to 2025. The rising need for consumer electronics appliances, electronic components and growing use of automation in manufacturing electronic components, such as circuit boards and sensors is driving the growth of the automated optical inspection market

Market Overview:

The automated optical inspection system (AOIS) is an equipment used to check the failures, defects, and faults in a printed circuit board, and helps in scanning the wafer sheet. Automated optical inspection can be defined as the visual checking of electric boards in which the scanning is done with the help of a camera and any major technical defects, or quality of the product is properly checked. It is used at various levels of manufacturing of electric components and devices. It helps in improving the quality and performance of the device, along with enhancement in inspection speed. The inspecting solder in AOIS evaluates the accurate assembly and increases the throughput. AOIS are being used by many industries such as consumer electronics, automotive, healthcare, IT &Telecommunication, and among others.

Furthermore, the demand for AOIS in electronics vertical is also growing, as the system serves hybrid inspection applications for PCB and metal hard mask. For instance, Omron propelled the use of VT-S530 systems that provides full 3D AOI capability with high performance, excellent first pass yield, and zero escape and lowest false-rejection rate. VT-S530 also features Omron’s color image processing technology to ensure the best inspection quality.
