This industry research report identifies EISENMANN, GigaTera (KMW), and Wenker as the key vendors in the global automotive inspection tunnels market. This industry research report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by end-user (body shops, OEMs, tier 2 suppliers, and tier 1 suppliers) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global automotive inspection tunnels market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global automotive inspection tunnels market will grow steadily over the next four years and post a CAGR of above 72% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the adoption of inspection tunnels by aftermarket paint booths and third-party body shops as one of the primary factors for market growth. The utilization of inspection tunnels lowers the cost of repainting and increases the precision of error detection in paints before and after the painting processes. This, in turn, saves on the constancy of car owners from bringing in their cars for repainting. Moreover, some paint booths have started using make-do or in-house painting booths leading to the strong aftermarket setups, driving the growth of the market.

One of the latest trends that will gain traction in the global automotive inspection tunnels market is the adoption of inspection tunnels for automated paint inspection process. In the automotive industry, the inspection tunnels bring in a scope for partial automation into the paint inspection process. The occurrence of fully automated inspection tunnels is anticipated to be fueled by the development of revolving light sources, targeted lighting, and sensor-based detection of paint blemishes. Moreover, the use of vision processing systems also eliminates the need of people to perform quality checks and is also much faster and accurate.
