ALBANY, New York, December 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research
"Surface Vision and Inspection Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share,
Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019," the global market is expected to
reach a value of USD 2.31 billion by 2019, at a CAGR of 8.9% from 2013 to

Due to increasing need of improving manufacturing production capacity and
growing demand for international quality products from consumers, the demand
for these systems is rising globally. In addition, shortage of skilled
workers, increasing wages and manufacturing errors increases economic burdens
on manufacturers. Owing to these, the global manufacturers are seeking for
automated process utilization and quality management solutions to improve
their sustainability in competitive environments. It also drastically reduces
manufacturing errors and helps manufacturer to maintain consistent quality of
product. In addition, it reduces production wastage and number of labors
required in case of manual inspection. These are some factors which are
expected to increase the demand of this market.

By components, surface vision and inspection cameras (SVIC) accounted for
largest revenue share of 48.1% of the overall components market in 2012.
Continuous advancement in micro-chips used in camera systems helps camera
manufacturers to produce more smaller, reliable and cheaper cameras. In the
last two decades manufacturers has shifted towards digital and smart cameras
as they are more reliable and efficient than analog cameras. These advanced
cameras provide better productivity and cost cut backs to manufacturers.
Software and hardware components are expected to see the fastest growth due to
growing demand for sophisticated software solutions that improves integration
of surface vision and inspection systems with other factory automation

By type, computer based systems accounted for the largest revenue share of the
overall surface vision and inspection market. These are cable of handling more
complex operations at greater speed. In addition, these systems can be easily
upgraded with advanced software and hardware as per requirements. This makes a
computer based systems more customizable and preferred by many manufacturers
over camera systems. However, demand of smart camera based systems is
increasing among small and medium size manufacturers as it is cheaper and
easily integrated with existing manufacturing facility. Moreover, camera based
systems is expected to see the fastest growth with continuous development in
smart cameras to handle complex applications.

While in case of application, semiconductor, automotive, electronics and
electrical industries accounted for more than 60% of the overall surface
vision and inspection market in 2012. Due to minute and ever needing testing
applications of chips and fabricated systems, semiconductor manufacturing
industry is expected to remain the largest end-use segment for surface vision
and inspection systems. However, Demand of these systems is expected to
increase rapidly in pharmaceutical, packaging and food industry. This is due
to introduction of stricter manufacturing and inspection regulations globally.

By Geography, Asia-Pacific (APAC) accounted for 32.3% of the overall revenue
share in 2012. This region is expected to maintain its dominating market share
throughout the forecast period. This is due to estimated market of growing
factory automation and other advanced automation industries in India, China,
Taiwan, Australia, Thailand and many other emerging countries in this region.
