Inline quality control sensors: Introduction & Significance
Rules and regulations in the packaging industry are subject to changes. Increasingly stringent standards to ensure quality of products and their safety are being implemented. Manufacturers of both end products as well as packaging formats must meet various standards in order to sustain in the market. Conventionally, there are several different types of inline quality control methods that are being currently used. These include check weighers, sensors as well as machine vision systems. Of these, packaging line quality control sensors have been witnessing steady growth since the past few years as these have become more sophisticated and can now detect various parameters in a product. Inline quality control sensors are used for various purposes, such as keeping packaged products in sync, detecting mission packages and removing waste products from the conveyor belt.
Inline quality control sensors market: Segmentation
The global inline quality control sensors market has been segmented as –
Based on product type, the global Inline quality control sensors market has been segmented as follows –
Point profile sensors, Line profile sensors, Snapshot sensors, Point profile sensors usually use a single laser point to scan at very high speeds. The results obtained from the scan can be used to perform functions, such as inspect displacement in a fast-moving process and build a contour or profile along the direction of the movement of the belt.
Line profile sensors are used to measure the contour or the profile of the surface. They do that by means of a line of laser light. Line profile sensors can generate 3D point cloud for 3D feature inspection. One of the advantages of having line profile sensors is the range of object sizes they are compatible with. Line profile quality control sensors can measure the shape of very small (10 mm) to large width objects (1.5 m), moving at high speed.

Snapshot sensors are ideal for inline inspection applications in which the object is momentarily stationary. Therefore, they are mostly used for pick and place and similar robotic applications.
Based on end use, the global Inline quality control sensors market has been segmented as follows – Food & Beverages, Pharmaceutical, Others
*The pricing of inline quality control sensors is based on their type and configuration i.e. point profile, line profile and snapshot variants.
Based on geography, the global Inline quality control sensors market has been divided into seven key regions – North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ), Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Middle East & Africa (MEA), Japan

The key manufacturers of various inline quality control sensors were identified and their revenues were recorded from various databases and their annual reports. Segmental revenue was then calculated to determine the percentage of revenue share that is generated from the sales of inline quality control sensors. Various focused group discussions were conducted, supported by interviews with marketing heads of inline quality control sensor manufacturers, independent consultants and distributors among others, to validate the data.
The overall market size for sensors used in automation was determined and the penetration of inline variants for the packaging industry was estimated. Bottom-up analysis was then used to validate the numbers. To estimate the numbers, the demand for inline quality control sensors was mapped for all the key manufacturers and their production facilities.
