RF test equipment market to see steady growth

Market news |
By Wisse Hettinga

Market growth will be driven by the growing adoption of wireless networking in in-building communication systems, rising focus on developing 5G network-based devices, and increasing deployment of IoT technology-based devices for various applications.

Asia Pacific (APAC) is expected to hold the largest share of the RF test equipment market during the forecast period. The growing demand for RF test equipment is attributed to the increasing number of smart phones and continuous advancements in next-generation telecommunication standards, such as LTE, 4G, and upcoming projects on 5G.

The bench top RF test equipment market held the largest share of  approximately 62 percent in 2016. The product development phase is very critical and needs equipment with high-precision performance. Bench top equipment is offered with high-precision capabilities and is preferred by the designers in the product development phase.

The RF test equipment market with more than 6 GHz frequency is expected to witness a significant growth between 2017 and 2023, driven by the growing demand for 5G technology. To illustrate this, in October 2017, Qualcomm launched the Snapdragon X50 5G modem chipset, that offers up to 5 gigabits per second download speeds, using multiple 5G carriers as well as the ability to demonstrate over-the-air connection using a tiny 28 GHz millimetrewave antenna module.
