Market Overview:

The Global Direct Imaging System Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for miniaturization and higher density in electronic devices, rising demand for advanced PCBs, and growing trend of using solder masks in PCB manufacturing. In terms of type, the laser type segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global direct imaging system market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to its high resolution and accuracy as compared to other types of direct imaging systems.

Global Direct Imaging System Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A direct imaging system is a type of astronomical telescope that does not use a mirror to reflect light. Instead, it uses an electronic device called a CCD (charge-coupled device) to directly detect the light from the objects being observed. This allows for much higher resolution images than traditional reflecting telescopes.

Laser Type:

Laser type is a classification based on the mechanism by which light or image data is generated and captured. Based on laser sources, there are two broad categories namely; solid state lasers and gas (laser) tube lasers. The solid-state laser produces light through electrical stimulation of a crystal or similar device while the gas (laser) tube emits light by stimulated emission of radiation from a heated filament within an optical cavity formed in the presence of intense electric fields.

UV-LED Type:

UV-LED type is a new technology that uses UV LED as the light source. The shorter wavelength of UV LEDs makes it possible to see things clearly compared to the normal visible light. This kind of lighting system is used in many applications like for instance, in direct imaging systems where people use normal cameras and project the image on a screen and also try to find objects etc using special filters so that only specific wavelengths are allowed through which helps them in finding out certain details about an object.

Application Insights:

The PCB application segment accounted for the largest share of over 40.0% in 2017 and is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period. The growing demand for direct imaging systems to inspect printed circuit boards (PCB) has been a major factor contributing towards segment growth. Direct imaging helps in inspecting components at different magnifications, which was not possible with the help of optical microscopes or any other conventional inspection tools.

Solder mask application is expected to be one of the fastest-growing segments during the forecast period owing to increasing demand from various end-use industries such as electronics, automotive and medical among others.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017 owing to the presence of major players such as Nikon Corporation; SHARP CORPORATION; Jabil Circuit, Inc.; and Lite-On Technology Corporation. The region is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period due to increasing demand for advanced technologies and high adoption rate of digital imaging in various applications.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to rising demand from end-use industries such as electronics, automotive, medical devices, etc. Furthermore, growing penetration of direct imaging systems used for inspection & testing in various countries including China and Japan are expected drive regional growth during the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for medical imaging systems in the healthcare sector
  • Rising prevalence of chronic diseases and disorders that require frequent diagnostic imaging
  • Proliferation of private diagnostic centers and hospitals, which is expected to drive demand for medical imaging systems
  • Technological advancements in direct imaging system that offer enhanced performance and features
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of early diagnosis through medical imaging
