Report examines global oscilloscopes market

The oscilloscopes market, a big product category in the general purpose test equipment industry, has been challenged in 2012, according to a Frost & Sullivan report on the market. This comes despite positive trends surrounding electronics and their increasing complexity that necessitate new capabilities in oscilloscopes. Will more positive economic conditions change the fate of this market in 2013 and beyond?

Frost & Sullivan's test and measurement group hosts a compementary webinar that will discuss the following:

  • Trends that will affect the oscilloscopes market growth drivers and restraints and future market size Trends from key perspectives, including bandwidth Frost & Sullivan's expert opinion on key market issues.
  • Examining market and technology trends, size and forecast, along with upcoming challenges, this presentation is pertinent to all participants in the oscilloscope market value chain, ranging from suppliers to oscilloscope OEMs, distributors of electronic test equipment, as well as end users across industries, including computing, aerospace and defense, automotive, communications, industrial, semiconductors, and consumer electronics, among others.

"Customers are asking for greater functionality in oscilloscopes. As the center of the bench, the oscilloscope is the tool of choice for integration," said Jessy Cavazos, Frost & Sullivan's test and measurement industry director Jessy Cavazos. "Capabilities in oscilloscopes are increasing drastically to become more comprehensive measurement tools, thus merging domains. This spells opportunity for some OEMs, but danger for others, as some OEMs have significant standalone businesses in the product categories converging with oscilloscopes, including spectrum analyzers and signal generators."
