Follow us on LinkedIn – Given its wide ranging benefits and importance in validating functioning and performance of wireless networks and devices, wireless test equipment has emerged as an indispensable tool for service providers, infrastructure equipment OEMs and consumer mobile device manufacturers. Use of test equipment is growing across the length and breadth of the communications industry right from research, design and development stage to production, testing and deployment stage. Product development testing and conformance testing will especially be the focus areas for wireless test equipment in the coming years. The perennial need among network operators and device manufacturers to continuously address rapidly evolving standards offers a steady flow of opportunities in the market. In order to provide seamless network connectivity and improve mobile usage experience by enabling delivery of high-bandwidth applications on mobile networks, service providers are constantly compelled to expand and upgrade their existing wireless network infrastructure. The continuous focus on monitoring and managing network infrastructure to ensure seamless and uninterrupted connectivity thereby generates opportunities for wireless testing solutions. Hard pressed to deliver high performance infrastructure equipment to network operators, equipment vendors are also required to thoroughly test their products for error handling, interoperability, and reporting before they are actually deployed in the field, which demands use of wireless test equipment.
Additionally, deployments of advanced communications networks such as WiMAX, LTE and LTE-Advanced to serve soaring data traffic and deliver high-bandwidth applications only makes network complexity more difficult to manage, thus driving need for wireless test equipment, which can help operators validate and test performance of network infrastructure and preserve integrity of network equipment.
While wireless test equipment is indispensable for network operators and network infrastructure manufacturers, they also serve testing needs for mobile device manufacturers. As manufacturers develop new advanced mobile devices such as smartphones, tablet PCs, laptops etc., need for testing new device capabilities and features remains a priority. Continued rise in global sales of mobile devices, particularly smartphones and tablet PCs therefore augurs well for the market. This is primarily because demand for these devices will encourage device manufacturers to enhance their production capacities by investing in efficient test equipment such as bench-top and one-box testing solutions. In addition, increasing manufacturers’ focus on superior product quality, cost reductions, and acceleration in time-to-market, will help drive demand for mobile device test equipment.
As stated by the new market research report on Wireless Test Equipment, the United States represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 14% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is driven by improving broadband penetration, growing use of Internet, strong penetration of advanced mobile devices, and rise in popularity of mobile data services. Growth in adoption of 3G and 4G enabled smartphones, successful rollout of 3G and 4G networks, and subsequent rise in number of people accessing data over mobile handsets, and establishment of new mobile phone manufacturing plants are also boosting market prospects in the region.
