The ATE market has potential for high growth due to demand from consumer electronics industry.
ATE is mainly employed to test the performance and functionality of the device being tested, which
is known as Device Under Test (DUT). Owing to the cost efficient high volume testing
characteristics, this equipment is being used widely in electronic industry. The market is largely
dependent on semiconductor chip volume; increasing chip volume is expected to drive global ATE
Growing complexity in design coupled with increasing range of consumer electronics products has
generated effective testing equipment demand, which is expected to be addressed by ATE devices.
The consolidated nature of the global market coupled with complete dependency on the cyclic
nature of the semiconductor industry may hamper market growth.
The global ATE market is estimated to reach USD 4.48 billion by 2020. Development of wireless
networks with growing need for green and energy effective ICs has enabled market participants to
remain competitive. Technological advancements in manufacturing processes of semiconductor
industry are expected to provide growth opportunity for the ATE market within the forecast period.
