With huge advancements in technology and researches being conducted daily, the need for new products in every field is enormously increasing and the demand in every field exceeds than that of the production. Each and every product in the market today comes out through a series of efficient time consuming test and measurement process. These T&M companies offers a wide variety of services for different products.

Accurate testing and measurement is critical in electronic systems design and manufacturing to ensure product quality. Test and measurement (T&M) systems play an essential role in ratifying the performance of a wide range of electronic products. Increased product complexity has spurred the demand for precision testing at every stage of the product’s life cycle, right from design and development to production testing, pre- and post-market testing, as well as support. Thus, the growth of the test and measurement industry goes hand in hand with the growth of the electronics industry in the country.

Indian Market has the potential to be among the forerunners in the next phase of technology innovations. The Indian electronic design and manufacturing sector has witnessed steady growth in recent years, with the focus shifting from pure play system or product design to include other areas such as product development, original design manufacturing etc. Therefore, immense business opportunities are brewing in the Indian T&M industry.
