According to Global Electronic Test and Measurement Market Outlook in Manufacturing, Forecast to 2020, a new analysis from Frost & Sullivan’s Test & Measurement Growth Partnerships Service (GPS) program, top tier companies are challenged by the demand to produce test equipment that can support emerging wireless technologies. Anritsu Corporation, Keysight Technologies, National Instruments and Rohde & Schwarz are expected to continue to dominate the total market.
Leading T&M companies are providing modular hardware components that users can program to meet the requirements of test applications. The future deployment of 5G will completely change the landscape of the market, with growing opportunities for modular instrumentation. To remain profitable, companies must rethink their approach to wireless manufacturing tests and embrace new paradigms.
“There are some initiatives of companies developing effective data analytics solutions based on strong expertise in manufacturing test. These solutions leverage the vast amount of untapped test data being collected by manufacturers. Cloud analytics applied to manufacturing is focused on providing increasing production yield and product quality,” noted Kimbara.
