Automated Test Equipment (ATE): A Global Multi-Client Research Initiative
San Jose, California (PRWEB) October 11, 2013
Follow us on LinkedIn – GIA invites senior industry executives, domain experts, technologists and market strategists to participate in a comprehensive global research initiative studying the “Automated Test Equipment (ATE)” markets. The study will examine key drivers and trends impacting the market such as growing demand for ATE in the semiconductor industry for wafer level testing, IC testing, and SOC testing; increased investments in upgrading ATE across end-use sectors like Consumer Electronics, Defense, IT & Telecommunication, and Automotive Electronics; emerging market opportunities in developing regions such as Asia-Pacific as a result of rapid expansion of semiconductor and electronic components manufacturing businesses.
Defined as test equipment engineered to automatically perform tests and validate correct functioning of semiconductor devices such as, integrated circuits, microprocessors, analog integrated circuits, and memory chips, Automated Test Equipment (ATE) is witnessing strong demand. Expanding production and growing complexity of semiconductor devices is a key factor driving demand for ATE. Increased adoption of chip scale packaging (CSP) is additionally helping fuel sales in the market. Discrete semiconductor automated test equipment, non-memory automated test equipment, and memory automated test equipment are forecast to witness strong demand. Key benefits of ATE driving its adoption include cost benefits as compared to manual testing, significant improvements in product quality, increased throughput and higher yields, test repeatability, improved productivity, reduced time to market and resulting first mover advantages in the marketplace.
Growth in the market in the coming years is expected to come from the telecom equipment and electronics end-use industry. Demand in the electronics industry is surging primarily due to the fast paced transition to 28nm node and 22nm node technology, which is encouraging demand for IC testing equipment. The growing adoption of combinational testers for high-end PCB testing which offers cost efficiencies also spells opportunities in the market. Boundary scan will especially witness increased adoption in board and system-level testing largely due to its ability to combine with other testing technologies and offer wider test coverage benefits.
The study estimates Automated Test Equipment (ATE) to be a multi-million dollar market worldwide, while more precise market-size and growth projections for a 14-year period will be made available during the 2nd stage of report preparation, and data analysis.
The research and analyses will be released shortly in the form of a comprehensive research report. The report by design, will attempt to provide exhaustive analysis, data, trends, market share, market size, statistics, forecasts and competitive intelligence. The report is modeled to offer precise and unbiased, actionable market insights including in-depth segmentation of market sub-sectors, demand estimates and projections and analysis of trends in each of the sectors, identification of leading players, and the competitive structure, among others.
Developed for Manufacturers/Vendors, Strategic Planners, Business Development Executives, Management Consultants, Investment Bankers, Consulting Firms, Marketing & Sales Executives, C-Level Decision Makers, Market Strategists and Technology Domain Experts, the report helps identify the biggest opportunities in this space and offers accurate latent demand forecasting that empowers quantitative decision making among existing market players and new entrants.
