Automated Test Equipment (ATE) Market Size to cross $4bn by 2022
Published Date: September 20, 2019 Authors: Preeti Wadhwani, Shubhangi Yadav
Automated Test Equipment Market size is set to cross USD 4 billion by 2022; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
The automated test equipment (ATE) market growth is primarily driven by the rising demand in consumer, computing, and communication markets. With the rising need for efficiency and the increasing complexity of integrated circuits and semiconductor devices, the cost of testing has been rising. This is augmenting the demand for cost-effective testing solutions, which automatically run high-level electronics diagnostic for integrated circuits. The testing solutions leverage automated information technology and control systems to perform tests, preventing defective devices from entering the market. Another factor accelerating market demand is the high penetration of smartphones and compact devices. The rising complexity of these products has compelled engineering teams to conduct testing of electronic modules to meet escalating requirements, simplifying development.
The consumer electronics market is projected to hold an automated test equipment market share of around 30% by 2022 due to the rapid growth of the semiconductor industry globally. According to the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), China represents around 50% of the global semiconductor market, accounting for USD 336 billion. It is estimated that the electronic products industry in India was around USD 6.18 billion in 2015 due to an increase in the number of mobile devices, industrial electronics, automotive electronics, and consumer electronics products. The rapid usage of advanced electronics products, such as smartphones, tablets, and LED TVs, has accelerated the demand for automated testing and test instruments to ensure that the device is free from defects. The testing equipment is used to test printed circuit boards, quickly confirming whether a device under the test is working properly or not.
