A surge in semiconductor test volumes and stringent test demands from the communication, consumer electronics, automotive, and healthcare verticals are expected to revive the ATE industry, says the firm, after it saw a decline in 2019. The firm forecasts that revenues from the sector will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.7% between 2019 and 2026 to reach $6 billion.
"There is a need for adjusting the product portfolio to integrate advanced test solutions and augment low-cost testing methodologies," says Riti Newa, Research Associate, Industrial at Frost & Sullivan. "Next-generation testing requires innovation and technological advancements to accommodate the high requirements of segments such as artificial intelligence (AI), automotive, and 5G networks."
The report explores the trends and factors influencing the global automated semiconductor test equipment industry and provides a thorough analysis of the current market scenario. It examines key market drivers and restraints and presents detailed revenue forecasts through the year 2026. The research also identifies the opportunities for growth in this sector and offers strategic recommendations to leverage them.
Investments across the 5G network infrastructure and innovations in semiconductor packaging provide new growth opportunities for market vendors, says the firm. Unified and integrated testing systems along with test methodologies that accommodate high-speed parallel testing can assist in ATE product expansion. Differentiated market approaches such as transitions from product ownership to service ownership can be a major growth factor in addressing the price-sensitive semiconductor ATE market.
