Surface Inspection Market Size Forecast to 2026 with COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, a deadly respiratory disease that originated in late 2019, is now become a worldwide issue and has also affected the surface inspection market. Most surface inspection manufacturers have been affected by this crisis, which is expected to be a medium-term impact. This is mainly due to the temporary halt in operations of automotive vertical which serve as the largest market for surface inspection system. Vehicle sales have slumped globally, with the situation likely to only aggravate further due to the lockdowns and travel restrictions imposed by most countries worldwide. According to WTO, in 2020, the exports of automobile products decreased by 12% worldwide. Imports of automotive products fell by 60% in April 2020 because of the closure of automobile assembly factories in Europe and North America, as well as a drop in car purchases. Following the breakout of COVID-19, the automotive industry in the US saw a severe reduction in demand as the car sales in March 2020 were down 38% Y-o-Y. Customers are postponing vehicle-buying decisions due to the prevailing conditions and the ensuing stalemate in the wake of the pandemic. This is expected to heavily impact the sales and shipments of surface inspection system.

  • For instance, in March 2020, automotive companies such as SEAT (Spain), Ford (US), Rolls-Royce (UK), Land Rover (UK), and Nissan (Japan) had halted production at their plants in the UK due to the increasing pressure from various unions to protect employees and follow government advisories. The UK, being the third largest economy in the world with a high degree of automation, was disrupted by the shutdown of manufacturing plants. Spain being the second-largest producer of automotive vehicles in Europe with high degree of automation; the halt in the manufacturing plant disrupted the surface inspection market.
  • In their annual report 2020, surface inspection OEMs ISRA VISION (Germany) mentions that - The COVID-19 pandemic clearly defines ISRA's business development in FY 2019 and 2020. Due to the global economic impact, the company's many years of profitable growth came to an end, with revenues falling 16% to USD 151 million in 2019/2020 (previous fiscal year: USD 168 million). This impact has financially weakened the company.

Surface inspection Market Dynamics

Driver : Increase in adoption of smart cameras, enhanced software, and powerful image processors owing to their benefits and features

Features and technologies of components such as the camera, optics, image sensors, processors, illumination equipment, and software determine the performance of a surface inspection system. Capabilities of smart cameras have been expanded due to advancements in embedded processors, allowing them to execute inspection activities autonomously. In April 2020, Cognex (US) introduced In-Sight D900, the world's first industrial smart camera powered by deep learning. Optical character recognition (OCR), assembly verification, and defect detection are a few of the complicated in-line inspection applications that these self-contained systems can handle. The Cognex ViDi deep learning software is also included in the In-Sight D900, boosting the performance of the industrial-grade smart camera. Most complex visual inspections can be performed quickly, conveniently, and more cost-effectively with the help of deep learning software. Similarly, FHV7 is a smart camera/smart vision product by OMRON (Japan). The system has a wide range of sensors, optics, and illumination and a high-speed processor in a small package. The powerful FH inspection software is built inside the OMRON FHV7. Cameras are customized according to applications and supported with various interfacing options. In its Alvium series, Allied Vision (Germany) offers cameras with a proprietary application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) for embedded vision processing. The software has evolved to cope with the complicated high-resolution images produced by advanced cameras. Machine vision software must be designed to handle diverse data sources; some surface inspection robots have up to eight cameras. The software has evolved to handle 3D images more efficiently. For example, VITRONIC (Germany) offers fully automated complete solutions VIPAC SMALLS SORT and VIPAC IN-MOTION that combine all processes in a single system - at the highest conveyor speeds; the IN-MOTION can inspect 38,000 packages per hour.

Restraint : Interoperability issues and difficulty in integration of different robotic frameworks with existing facilities

Interoperability is a critical function in any factory or manufacturing facility. A modular framework must exist for both hardware and software to connect and coordinate various surface inspection systems. The emphasis is not only on the software side, which is used for programming, diagnosing, and monitoring but also on the hardware interchangeability between surface inspections (vision system) and robot arms. In the manufacturing and processing industries, there have been cases where a client purchased a robot arm and a surface inspection separately that were not fully compatible with each other, and the setup was a huge challenge from the start. Currently, it is common in the industry to switch surface inspections mid-cycle to accommodate advanced or better vision systems because of the improved performance-cost ratio. It is the integrator's responsibility, not the manufacturer's or the end user's, to decide on the implementation and configuration of the vision system. Interoperability issues, therefore, act as a big challenge for SMEs due to their unique requirements and lack of personnel to set up a complex automation setup. Companies are now implementing plug-and-play functionality in many of their robots to reduce interoperability issues at both the software and hardware levels.

Opportunity : Increase in adoption of collaborative robots (cobots) owing to their benefits and features

Currently, surface inspection systems are being integrated with robots, which improves process speed, lowers costs, and reduces human errors. These systems are also known as VGR systems, are used in the automotive, electronics, and food processing industries. As the demand for robots grows, so will the demand for surface inspection systems. Collaborative robots are becoming more popular because they allow humans and robots to work effectively together in open or uncaged environments. They are widely adopted not only in small and medium-sized businesses but also in large-scale, traditional industries like automotive. The demand for collaborative vision systems is increasing due to the fast-changing nature of industries. This scenario is observed in the consumer goods industry, specifically packaging, where the shape, size, surface, or weight of the packaging is constantly changing. The collaborative robot market is expected to grow at a high CAGR of 42.8% between 2021 and 2026, with the presence across industries such as automotive, and electrical & electronics industries to pharmaceutical & cosmetics, and food & beverage. Collaborative robots are outfitted with vision systems that allow them to inspect various shapes and sizes. Robotic arms provide the leverage to rotate and move at specific angles. Moreover, integrated robotic solutions enable to retrieve of the benefits of robotic vision quickly and easily, without the need for programming knowledge. Several players such as Kitov (Israel), ISRA VISION (Germany), Cognex (US), and VITRONIC (Germany) venturing into robot-based surface inspection system.

Challenge : Increase in the complexity of the product design and manufacturing

Surface inspection systems are used in the automotive, food, web inspection, non-wovens, metal, paper, semiconductors, and electrical and electronics industries. Each industry has its quirks, and technological advancements add complexity to the manufacturing process on a daily basis. Surface inspection systems face the challenge of meeting the diverse and ever-changing needs of various industries. For instance, surface inspection systems in the metal industry should be capable of inspecting cut, shaped, rolled, or coated metal surfaces. The manifestation of these defects varies as a result of variations in the manufacturing process.

An undetected defect in a single layer can have an impact on production quality, making high-precision detection essential. In the plastics industry, highly precise inspection is critical because a small tear that goes undetected can spread to the entire roll.

Defects such as chips, cracks, and contamination on a disk drive head are not permitted during magnetic disk drive inspection. Some of these flaws can be as minor as 0.000060 cm. As a result, keeping up with rapidly evolving technology is difficult for the surface inspection market. Inspection for surfaces, holes, slots, nuts, and studs, among other complex features, is required when assembling large objects such as automotive bodies and subassemblies. These features are also available in a variety of materials and colors, ranging from stamped steel and aluminum to plastics and composites. Surface inspection systems in the semiconductor industry should be capable of inspecting components as small as nanometers. As a result, keeping up with rapidly changing technology is difficult for the surface inspection market.

Cameras are expected to hold the largest share of surface inspection market throughout the forecast period

Cameras are expected to grow at a significant rate and dominate the surface inspection market during the forecast period. This is because many applications such as inspection of packaging for proper lids and labels and inspection of large objects such as doors of automobiles can require multiple cameras to cover large areas. Cameras are also being regularly upgraded in terms of resolution and frame rate. cover large areas. Cameras are also being regularly upgraded in terms of resolution and frame rate. While other components are finding replacements and seeing a reduction in demand, camera and software remain unreplaced. The demand for standalone processors is expected to reduce owing to the availability of camera-based systems equipped with onboard processors. Optics can be replaced using robotic cells, which offer flexibility in the distance between the camera and the work item. With the advent of high-resolution cameras, frame grabbers are not required for low-end applications. Currently, companies are manufacturing cameras, which can be used for both 2D and 3D applications. For example, KEYENCE (Japan) manufactures the XR series, which can be used to acquire both 3D and 2D images. Several companies are also manufacturing smart cameras with more than 5 MP image sensors depending upon the nature of the application. For example, the T49 smart camera by Datalogic (Italy), MicroHAWK series by OMRON Microscan (US), NUERA camera series by Soliton Technologies (India), BOA2 XA5 camera by Teledyne DALSA (Canada) (a subsidiary of Teledyne Technologies), VCSBC nano Z-RH 0012 by Vision Components (Germany), and VE205G1A model by Banner Engineering (US).

3D surface inspection systems are expected to grow at higher CAGR during forecast period

The 3D surface inspection market is likely to grow at a higher rate than the 2D surface inspection market during the forecast period, both in terms of value as well as volume. With the increase in demand for product quality and complexity of surfaces, 3D surface inspection techniques are replacing 2D surface inspection techniques in manufacturing and quality control. This is because 3D techniques overcome the limitations of 2D techniques and allow manufacturers to inspect beyond the two planes of a product; they also provide data on the height of the product, thereby adding data points to make more accurate conclusions. Because of advancements in accuracy and speed in both 3D scanners and point cloud data processing, 3D scanning has become an increasingly effective and popular method of capturing surface geometry. The resulting measurement data can be extremely dense, allowing for creative and useful processing. The ability to measure features and characteristics in detail that were previously extrapolated or simply excluded from conventionally obtained and sparse data is particularly useful. For 3D imaging, a variety of techniques are available. Teledyne DALSA's (Canada) Z-Trak series of 3D laser profilers use a laser triangulation technique to deliver high-resolution height measurements. Z-Trak projects a laser onto an object of interest; the position of the reflection in the sensor's field of view allows the scanner to triangulate the point in space where the laser hits the object. Furthermore, the 3D sensor feedback is used to precisely align the part face to the high-resolution line-scan imaging system, and the part is imaged. Hence, the market for 3D cameras is expected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period.
