The global test and measurement equipment market is segmented on the product as general-purpose test equipment (GPTE), wireless test equipment, semiconductor test equipment, and RF test chambers. The general purpose test equipment (GPTE) segment accounts for the highest market share due to a rise in the demand for general-purpose test equipment due to its characteristics such as large size, bulky displays, slightly complicated control systems, customer user interfaces, and others. It includes the oscilloscope, signal generator, analyzers, meters, thermal imagers, bit error ratio testers (BERT), and other equipment. The oscilloscope displays an electrical signal waveform: an analyzer records and displays various signals from a digital system or circuit. The signal generator produces electrical signals in a waveform. The wireless test equipment segment accounts for a significant market share of XX% in 2019. The wireless test equipment segment comprises logic analyzers, spectrum analyzers, network analyzers, and network simulators.
Further, the market is also classified based on aerospace & defense, healthcare & medical equipment, telecommunication, electronics & semiconductor, industrial & manufacturing, and automotive. The automotive segment accounts for the highest market share due to increased automobile manufacturing production with advanced automation technologies. There is an increase in automotive manufacturing hubs implementing computer-controlled processes worldwide. It is further expected that this segment would maintain its dominant position over the forecasted period.
The aerospace and defense segment is expected to have positive market growth due to increased aircraft and helicopters. According to the General Aviation Manufacturers Association, there are approximately 416,000 general aircraft flying worldwide. There is a high demand for test and measurement equipment for regular testing and servicing for aircraft and helicopters.
By region, the global test and measurement equipment market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East, and Africa. North America accounted for the highest market share among all regions due to increased test and measurement equipment in the automotive, electrical, and electronic sectors. The growing automobile industry shall have a positive impact on the market. According to the American Automotive Policy Council, around 11.3 million cars and trucks were produced in 2018, and this number is expected to increase in the forecasted period.
Asia-Pacific region contributes to the prominent market share as it is the center of automotive, electrical, and electronics industries. Globally, the Asia Pacific region is one of the largest automobile producers. The automobile industry is witnessing the rising adoption of connected cars and autonomous cars due to the availability and affordability of high-speed internet connectivity, smartphone integration via apps, and several benefits. India is a fast-emerging market for connected vehicle business. The growing healthcare industry is expected to stimulate market growth over the forecasted period. According to India Brand Equity Foundation, the healthcare market was USD 61.79 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 133.44 Billion by 2022 due to its strengthening coverage, services, and increasing expenditure by public and private market players. The rising development of new healthcare equipment, patient-monitoring systems, and personal emergency reporting systems increases the demand for test and measurement equipment over the forecasted period. Developing countries such as China, India, and South Korea are leading consumer electronic devices such as smartphones, laptops, and other consumer electronic devices.
The global test and measurement equipment market is highly competitive with forwarding and backward integration. Several local and international players are present in the market. Fortive, Keysight Technologies, Rohde & Schwarz, Viavi Solutions, Anritsu, Yokogawa Electric, Texas Instruments, and Teledyne are the leading companies with prominent market share.
Companies focus on new product launches, technological advancement, product development, market expansion, product diversification, capacity utilization strategies for placing their products in the market. For instance, in March 2020, element14 had launched a new range of affordable industrial and production-grade precision test equipment and tools from its Multicomp Pro brand. In June 2018, Keysight Technologies had launched a suite of test and measurement solutions for Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV)/Electric Vehicle (EV) and Home Energy Management Systems (HEMS).
The companies are entering into collaborations, mergers, strategic partnerships, and acquisitions to increase the demand for test and measurement equipment and their expansion across the globe. For instance, in February 2020, Rohde & Schwarz had entered into a collaboration with Decawave to develop T&M capabilities for production-line testing of ultra-wideband (UWB) functions in chipsets and complete devices. Decawave would provide the knowledge of the required test strategy and test methods under the agreement's terms, and Decawave DW3000 as a test device. Rohde & Schwarz would provide the UWB test capabilities to its R&S CMP200 radio communication tester, making it the only test platform on the market able to provide R&D and production RF tests for both 5G FR2 and UWB functions.
In September 2019, National Instruments had entered into the collaboration with ETAS to create a new company that would make automotive test products. This joint venture, i.e., ETAS NI Systems GmbH & Co. KG, would help meet the demand for increased efficiency in software development for modern cars with driver assistance systems.
