The global defect detection market is estimated to grow from USD 3.5 billion in 2021 to USD 5.0 billion by 2026 at a CAGR of 7.5% during 2021–2026. The growth of the defect detection market is driven by factors such as strong focus of manufacturers on automating quality control and quality assurance processes; stringent health and safety measures imposed by governments and standards organizations on global manufacturing firms; and high demand for application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs). However, dearth of skilled professionals in manufacturing factories is restraining the growth of the market. Nevertheless, defect detection systems are likely to be adopted at a significant rate in various industries, garnering the interest of industry players across several verticals.
Key players in the defect detection market comprise companies operating at different stages of the value chain. These include Microsoft (US), IBM (US), Amazon Web Services (US), OMRON Corporation (Japan), Cognex Corporation (US), Teledyne Technologies (US), ISRA VISION (Germany), KEYENCE (Japan), Datalogic (Italy), and Matrox Electronic Systems (Canada). Many of these companies focus on adopting both organic and inorganic growth strategies, such as product launches and developments, acquisitions, partnerships, contracts, and agreements to strengthen their position in the market.
