General Purpose Electronic Test and Measurement Instruments: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) November 22, 2011
Follow us on LinkedIn – Electronic Test and Measurement (T&M) instruments industry has long entrenched itself as an indispensable platform for validating the functioning and performance of a wide gamut of diverse electronic products. Higher performance of electronic devices, device miniaturization, advancements in wireless capabilities, expanding force of PC in instrumentation have all exerted their influence in pushing the evolution of T&M instruments. Customer base for test and measurement systems and services, once dominated by aerospace and defense companies, has over the recent past, shifted to new, intensely competitive industries with strong growth in communications and semiconductor manufacturing.
Today, there exists a wide range of instrument types designed to meet virtually any end-use requirement. The mature market responds to the varied testing needs of a wide range of end-use industries, ranging from the sophisticated technology driven telecommunications industry to the rather staid chemical industry. Stringent and increasingly rigorous quality, safety, and environmental standards worldwide, for manufacturing, maintenance, and use of material and equipment have driven, and will continue to drive gains in the contemporary market. Additionally, diversification into new quarters, i.e., testing of medical equipment and various biomedical engineering applications, will also provide the thrust required to push the electronic test and measurement instruments market out of its orbit.
T&M instruments are evolving into application specific products, engineered to meet demanding end-user requirements. Smaller market participants, with flexibility as their forte, are effectively carving a niche for themselves among the titans, by focusing on the specific requirements of select customer groups. Further, driven by end-user pressures to lower T&M hardware and software incompatibility, and the need for reducing complex programming to ensure instrument connectivity, even manufacturers of traditional benchtop instruments are increasingly incorporating their products with microprocessors, and computers that simplify the task of interfacing with PCs.
The Internet, as an effective and efficient connectivity tool, is being harnessed not just for enhancing end-user functionality and value additions, but also as an important instrument for facilitating customer support services. In a business environment characterized by fierce competition, excessive pricing pressures, and extreme consumer fickleness, customer support services are being singled out as an important strategy to maintain existing customer base. Today, all T&M instruments vendors flaunt e-commerce sites that allow customers to purchase goods, and seek informational/technical support services online. Remote customer support and diagnostics of test equipment, offered by vendors, is an emerging trend in the T&M instruments industry.
The US commands the leadership position as the largest market, capturing a dominant slice of the global market, as stated by the new market research report on General Purpose Electronic Test and Measurement Instruments.
