According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, “Automated optical inspection market by type, application, and industry vertical: global opportunity analysis and industry forecast, 2021–2030,” the global automated optical inspection market size was valued at $0.57 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $3.29 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 21.0% from 2021 to 2030.
Automated optical inspection (AOI) is the computerized system for visual assessment on a printed circuit board (PCB) where an independent camera filters a gadget which is to be tried for both the cataclysmic failure and the quality deformities. It is most usually utilized for assembling processes as it is a test strategy which doesn't need any contact. It is executed through different phases of the assembling system which incorporates exposed board investigations, SPI (bind glue assessments), pre reflows and post reflows among different stages. Automated optical inspection empowers a quick and a precise assessment of the hardware gathering and specifically printed circuit board guaranteeing the quality of a product manufactured on the production line is ideal and the product is effectively produced with practically no assembling issues. Automated optical inspection systems apply various methods for fault identification in the printed circuit board. One of the strategies is layout coordinating with which looks at the picture of printed circuit board and the golden board. Another methods utilized are design coordinating and statistical pattern matching.
Significant factors that impact growth of the automated optical inspection market include significant demand for consumer electronics, automation of electronics manufacturing facilities, and emergence of surface mount technology. However, sophisticated infrastructure required to handle large amount of data hampers the market growth. On the contrary, emergence of SMART technology is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the automated optical inspection market trends during the forecast period.
