Research and Markets: Global Automated Test Equipment Market Forecasts & Opportunities, 2018
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/486k2s/global_automated)
has announced the addition of the "Global
Automated Test Equipment Market Forecasts & Opportunities, 2018"
report to their offering.
The growth of the Global ATE market is driven by several factors, the
most important of which is the increasing demand for smart electronic
devices. The main reason for this growing demand is the increased
adoption of these devices in emerging markets. This increasing demand
has subsequently created high demand for semiconductor components such
as ICs, thus driving the growth of this market. An SoC is an IC that
packages all the necessary electronic components into a single microchip.
Currently, the market is witnessing a rapid increase in the demand for
SoCs, primarily because of factors such as the rapid technological
advancements and changing customer needs. SoCs are used in small and
complex electrnic devices such as smartphones, tablets, and portable
gaming devices. They help develop compact and highly reliable electronic
products. Some of the benefits associated with SoCs are the high density
of functions, high on-chip frequencies, high reliability, and moderate
With the increasing adoption of advanced consumer electronics and
communication devices, there is an increase in the demand for SoC
semiconductors that are smaller in size, provide higher performance, and
consume lower power. Factors such as these have led to increasing demand
for sophisticated ATE systems that can simultaneously test SoC
semiconductors' logic, analog, and memory circuits.
Further, the report states that one of the key challenges in the market
is the cyclical nature of the Semiconductor industry. As a result of
this, there are fluctuations in the demand for the semiconductors
deployed in numerous electronic products, leading to a demand-supply gap
and an inventory pile-up. Thus, ATE manufacturers often experience
fluctuating revenue, which in turn adversely affects their profitability.
