Auto Parts Inspection: More Effective than Ever

Auto Parts Inspection: More Effective than Ever

Apr 29, 2020

Automobile manufacturing is a fiercely competitive industry. A car is composed of many important parts, including car bodies, chassis, wheel & tires, interiors, exteriors, seating, powertrains, electronics, mirrors, closures, roof systems & modules, etc. From the design to the product time-to-market, quality control is particularly important to ensure the best customer satisfaction and brand presence.

Global Auto Parts and Accessories Market Size Outlook

Global “Auto Parts and Accessories” Market 2020 Research Report provides key analysis on the market status of the auto parts manufacturers.

The worldwide market for auto parts and accessories is expected to grow at a CAGR of roughly 4.4% over the next five years, will reach $2,543,700 million in 2024, from $1,969,100 million in 2019.

Auto Parts Inspection More Effective than Ever

Auto parts and accessories are widely used in OEM and aftermarkets. The former account for a market share of more than 67%. China is the largest consumption country, with a consumption market share nearly 25% in 2016 due to the fast-growing automotive industry. USA and Europe followed China with its mature automotive industry.


For automobile manufacturing, the inevitable thing is to reduce the cost (like labors, time, money) and improve the overall efficiency while ensuring the quality. Headlights, made of plastic, are essential parts for driving at night. However, it is likely to be squeezed and deformed during the installation. Manufacturers need to simulate the state of the headlights after the installation through the fixtures, and then conduct the quality inspection. Hence, the accuracy of the fixture directly affects the detection and the performance of the headlights.
