Furthermore, the expansion of the Internet, broadband and wireless communication devices results in the need for faster and more complex electronic signals. Testing these signals requires oscilloscopes with high sample rates and long memories to perform the required analysis.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (testandmeasurement.frost.com), World Oscilloscope Markets, finds that the market earned revenues of $1.28 billion in 2007 and estimates this to reach $1.90 billion in 2014.

"Technological advancements in key end-user industries such as PC, communications, and consumer electronics are driving the worldwide demand for oscilloscopes," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Vijay Mathew. "Effective testing of new technologies and related equipment in the design, manufacturing, installation and maintenance stages is expected to sustain the demand for these test instruments."
The transition to digital RF technology and the emergence of faster serial bus technologies such as PCI Express 2.0, Serial ATA III, and HDMI 1.3 has raised the bar in terms of performance requirements for oscilloscopes. It has become important for vendors to provide solutions that can meet the demands of serial data rates and wideband digital RF technologies.
However, rapid technological changes in end-user markets such as communications, computers, consumer electronics, as well as aerospace and defense make it difficult for oscilloscope vendors to keep pace. Moreover, with increasing competition levels, companies have to reduce the development time for newer products and test them faster, increasing pressure on vendors.
"The presence of established market participants such as Tektronix, Agilent, and LeCroy poses a significant challenge for tier 3 and even tier 2 companies," explains Mathew. "The increasing complexity of the signals used in different applications is also a big challenge for smaller companies that may not have the financial strength to spend on research and development to advance their products."
Vendors need to be aware of the latest developments in their end-user markets to better meet their customers' changing needs as well as stay ahead of competing instrument offerings in the market. End users are increasingly looking for more sophisticated and innovative equipment with increased functionalities, calling for additional investment in research and development activities.
