Automated Optical Inspection System Market

Omron Corporation (Japan) and Koh Young Technology Inc. (South Korea) are Leading Players in Automated Optical Inspection System Market

Automated optical inspection (AOI) systems are primarily used for the inspection of printed circuit boards (PCBs). It consists of a camera system, lighting system, computer system, and software. The camera system is used to capture images, followed by the proper illumination of the inspection region by the lighting system. The captured images are then compared with the defect-free PCB image uploaded in the computer system. By comparing the images, the AOI system software highlights defects of the PCB under inspection. These systems are used in industries such as automotive, aerospace & defense, consumer electronics, industrial electronics, medical devices, telecommunications, and energy & power. The growth of the market is mainly attributed to the growing demand for consumer electronics, increasing need for high-quality electronic components, and demand for higher productivity by electronics manufacturing services (EMS) companies. The AOI system market is expected to reach USD 1,641 million by 2024 from USD 444 million by 2018, at a CAGR of 24.3% during 2018–2024. Koh Young (South Korea), Test Research, Inc. (TRI, Taiwan), and Omron (Japan) are the leading players in the AOI system market.

Koh Young is among the leading manufacturers of 3D AOI systems all over the world. The company focusses on its R&D activities to maintain its technical leadership in the field of optical inspection. In FY2017, the company invested 11.3% of its overall revenue in R&D activities. Apart from R&D, the company has also been implementing strategies such as product launch and expansion to rapidly expand its business operations worldwide. For instance, in May 2018, it opened a new R&D center in Suwon (South Korea) to develop innovative products. Moreover, in November 2017, Koh Young launched Zenith 2 AOI platform with Artificial Intelligence-driven (AI-driven) auto-programming software that reduces programming time by 70%.

TRI offers the most robust product portfolio in the industry for automatic test and inspection solutions. The company’s product line-up is in line with the latest technological trends in industries, such as Industry 4.0 and smart factory applications. Its highly sophisticated after-sale services have also allowed it to gain recognition among the world-class electronics manufacturing companies. Moreover, the company constantly works toward upgrading and launching new AOI systems through its R&D activities. For instance, in March 2017, TRI launched its new top-of-the-line TR7700QE 3D AOI systems featuring an advanced 3D solder fillet inspection capability for zero-escape fault detection.

Omron is a leading electronics manufacturing company, which sells a range of control equipment, electronic component, automotive electronics, social infrastructure, and healthcare solutions. It has been constantly putting efforts in enhancing the capabilities of its AOI systems to offer better value to its customers. In July 2018, the company announced that it would be offering its AOI systems with The Hermes Standard (THS). THS, an independent provider of machine-to-machine communication, will help simplify the production-related data transfer in SMT production. Further, the company focusses on product launches and product innovations to increase its profitability. For instance, November 2017, Omron launched its 3D AOI system named VT-S530 offering high performance, excellent first pass yield, and zero escape and lowest false-rejection rate.
