All major electronic equipment manufacturers and suppliers need testing mechanism to make systems fool proof before deployment. Automated Test Equipment (ATE) is basically employed to check for defects in the Devices under Test (DUT) and to ensure their quality. The adoption of Automated Test Equipment plays a very significant role in lowering the costs incurred for manufacturing and in the elimination of defective devices. The forecast for the market is done for 2014 through 2020, across all segmentations. The global Automated Test Equipment (ATE) market is estimated to reach $4 billion by 2020.
Demand for Automated Test Equipment appears to be growing in regions with high consumer electronics demand. This facilitates the market to progress rapidly in North America, Europe, China, Japan, Taiwan and other Asian countries. The Asian market poses the highest potential for growth as India and China are becoming global economies with their focus on the electronics and manufacturing sectors.
There are a variety of approaches for automatic test equipment. All the mentioned types of automated testing serve different end applications and different technologies which create a disparity in adoption and skewed market shares. Increasing demand for consumer electronics is expected to propel the market in the years to come. Increase in the design complexity due to adoption of System-on-a-chip (SoC) has given rise to the need for effective testing operations, which is expected to drive the growth of ATE market. The unstable demand for semiconductors is expected to challenge the growth of ATE market during the forecast period. Increased adoption of wireless networks and advancements in the manufacturing processes are key factors contributing to the market growth during the period under study.
