Inspection machines market is flourishing because of the rising production volume and increasing consumer awareness about the safety of biopharma and food products.
BlueWeave Consulting, a leading strategic consulting and market research firm, in its recent study, estimated the global inspection machines market size at USD 745.21 million in 2022. During the forecast period between 2023 and 2029, BlueWeave expects the global inspection machines market size to grow at a CAGR of 5.21% reaching a value of USD 1,010.56 million by 2029. Major growth drivers for the global inspection machines market include governments’ increasing focus on ensuring the safety of food products, growing investments in research and development programs in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sector, and the proliferation of inspection checkpoints across production stages. Notably, there’s a growing emphasis on the enforcement of stringent policies to maintain Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) compliance. Furthermore, another influential factor is the rising cost of inspection machinery, leading to greater demand for reconditioned equipment, which, in turn, restricts market expansion. Moreover, ongoing technological advancements in inspection machines, encompassing improved sensor technologies, rapid imaging, machine vision systems, data analytics, and artificial intelligence, are expected to further elevate the market’s capabilities, enhancing precision, speed, and efficiency in product inspection. Also, the expansion of manufacturing facilities in emerging economies presents substantial growth opportunities for the market over the forecast period. However, high initial investment is anticipated to restrain the overall market growth during the period in analysis.
Inspection Machines – Overview
The term “inspection machines” encompasses the array of equipment designed for scrutinizing products to ascertain their adherence to predetermined quality standards. This examination often entails assessing factors, such as leakage, weight, and packaging quality. Inspection machines cater to a diverse range of packaging types, including bottles, blisters, syringes, pouches, stick packs, and cartridges. As the industrial landscape continues to evolve, the demand for inspection machines is expected to witness an upsurge, particularly within pivotal end-use sectors. This surge can be attributed to the increasing prevalence of inspection checkpoints integrated at multiple stages of production and packaging processes.
Impact of COVID-19 on Global Inspection Machines Market
COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected the global inspection machines market. Disruptions in supply chains, reduced workforce availability, and temporary shutdowns of manufacturing facilities hampered the production and distribution of inspection machines. Additionally, a shift in priorities toward healthcare and pharmaceutical inspection equipment was observed, given the increased demand for medical products. However, the pandemic also underscored the importance of quality control, driving investments in inspection technology to ensure product safety and reliability. As industries adapted to the “new normal,” the inspection machines market exhibited resilience and potential for growth, primarily fueled by the healthcare and food sectors’ evolving requirements and regulations.
