Report Scope & Overview:

Automated Optical Inspection Market Size was valued at USD 979 million in 2022, and expected to reach USD 3.81 billion by 2030, and grow at a CAGR of 18.5% over the forecast period 2023-2030.

Automatic optical inspection (AOI) systems are used for visual inspection on a printed circuit board that monitors the gadget with the help of an independent camera and for testing for both catastrophic failures and quality defects. These systems provide improved speed and accuracy. Automatic testing machines are faster and provide test compatibility. Automated testing systems use a variety of processes, for example, layout integration, design coordinating, and mathematical pattern matching, to provide an overview of whether a board is good or has any imperfections.

COVID-19 has a huge impact on consumers and the economy. Production hubs were temporarily operated with low efficiency to accommodate the distribution of COVID-19. This has greatly affected the supply chain market by creating shortages of materials, commodities, and finished goods. The lack of business continuity has confirmed a significant negative impact on shareholder returns and revenue, which is expected to cause financial disruption in the automated optical inspection industry.

Based on Type, the Automated optical inspection market is segmented into 2D and 3D. The 3D AOI system market is expected to dominate and accelerate during forecasting. Larger production units mainly use 3D AOI systems. 3D AOI systems have high operating costs and use sophisticated program codes to work but are more efficient and more sensitive to defects and faults than 2D AOI systems. In comparison to 2D AOI systems, 3D AOI systems are superior because they can identify flaws on PCB substrates and ball grid arrays (BGA). In addition, the ability to quickly detect faults in long sections, a significant reduction in false call scales, and the ability to provide volume data for sub-test components make 3D AOI systems a good choice for electronic manufacturing services (EMS) providers in the years to come.

Based on Technology, the Automated optical inspection market is segmented into Inline, Offline. The inline AOI system is expected to become a large and rapidly growing market at the time of forecasting. For electronics manufacturers engaged in large volume production, inline AOI systems offer a high degree of PCB inspection. Therefore, many large manufacturing companies incorporate multiple inline AOI systems into their production lines to speed up the inspection process.

Based on Industry, the Automated optical inspection market is segmented into Consumer Electronics, Automotive, Aerospace & Defense, Energy & Power, Telecommunications, Medical Devices and Industrial Electronics.

The consumer electronics segment is expected to hold the largest market share of the AOI system at the time of forecasting. The internal circuitry and component complexity of electronic devices has grown even more complicated due to their miniaturization. To efficient inspection the complex PCB of small and compact consumer electronics and components, manufacturers are increasingly using advanced AOI systems to deliver high quality products to customers. The practice of having a single device with multiple functions has made modern electronic devices such as smartphones, laptops, and accessories extremely difficult to construct. The increasing complexity of these machines requires AOI systems to be highly developed to be inspected. In addition, with the increasing adoption of 3D test technology, AOI systems will play a key role in maintaining high quality standards for these complex consumer electronics devices.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
