- Opportunity and Forecast, 2016-2025
Automated test equipment (ATE) is a computer-controlled equipment used to test electronic devices for performance and functionality. It uses automation to perform measurement rapidly and conclude test results. Moreover, it automatically conducts testing and diagnoses faults in integrated circuits and system on chips. ATE is considered as a cost-effective solution for volume testing. A wide range of technologies such as machine vision are used in ATE for electronics manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, medical, and other industries. In addition, it is used in wireless communication and radar in military applications.
The growth of the global ATE market is driven by need for effective testing, increase in number of consumer devices, and rise in demand for miniaturization. However, constant variation in demand for semiconductor industry, resulting in supply demand gap, affects the implementation of ATE in the industry, thus restraining the growth of the industry. Increase in demand for smartphone with features including superior quality cameras, high resolution, and touch screen display are expected to create opportunities in the industry.
