Investments in Multiple Form Factors Drive Business Value

There is an increasing focus on supporting growth in the T&M market across all form factors including benchtop, modular, and handheld. Companies are focused on a high level of technical expertise with multi-technology platforms and product breadth. Major opportunities will come from hybrid test solutions envisioned to attain hardware and software interoperability. In fact, a trend has begun in utilizing a combination of instruments.

New opportunities are coming principally from companies supporting a wide range of radio test functions and applying an open architecture and modular systems, such as PXI, instead of a proprietary model system in research and development (R&D) and production. There is a demand for new capabilities from handhelds. Growth is fueled by continuous innovation in handheld products.

Simulation software is experiencing growth across all end markets. There are increasing opportunities from vertical industries such as automotive and power. The wireless industry will require T&M vendors to have a software price position for wireless testing. An increasing need is demanding higher modularity, customization, and software design that can facilitate cost-effective upgrades.

The new value from a T&M business is expected to come from the need of monetizing the decision-making and intelligence that can be extracted from the data produced by a platform-centric business model. OEMs will need to pursue a service delivery platform that effectively integrates test equipment, software analytics, and services. There is an increasing proliferation of services. New growth opportunities are arising from asset management, multi-vendor support, and consulting services. There is a need to ensure cooperation and remove organizational silos. Usually, the team that buys test equipment is different from the team that actually uses the test equipment and the team responsible for it. There is a need to include a centralized database as an ordering management system. This research service analyzes the competitive profiles of the leading organizations in the test & measurement and comm test market.
