Furthermore, the increasing penetration of 5G and IoT devices is boosting the need for high-performance 5G chipsets and ICs, as well as automated test equipment from OSATs and IDMs, which is likely to fuel business expansion. According to the GSMA, there will be two billion 5G connections by 2025, an increase from the present projection of one billion. Additionally, the industry is expected to expand rapidly during 2023-2032 supported by the usage of energy-efficient integrated circuits.

High purchasing and maintenance costs may restrict product adoption

The complexities of product utilization and the high purchase and maintenance expenses of automated testing equipment are limiting product uptake. Moreover, there are a variety of other maintenance concerns, such as repairs, equipment misconfiguration and calibration issues, all of which cost time and resources. This increases the equipment's maintenance and handling costs, restricting product acceptance. However, manufacturers are prioritizing the modern ATE market progress as part of R&D initiatives, which may aid them in overcoming these constraints.

Emerging need for advanced test features to augment linear & discrete test systems

The linear & discrete automated test equipment market is estimated to reach a valuation of over USD 2.5 billion by 2032 attributed to its growing demand owing to the rising need for various advanced test features, such as the identification of unknown devices, conditional loop testing and presenting information about portable pins. In most TTL, memory ICs, CMOS, and other interface devices, these characteristics allow users to find intermittent and temperature-related defects through linear testing, which is set to accelerate market demand.
