Global Cable Tester Market 2017-2021
About Cable Tester
Cable testers are hand-held devices used to check the strength of the electrical or electronic signal travelling through a cable. The device is used to test the source of current as well as the load attached to the tester. The device also measures various parameters such as the current/ voltage loss, the power factor, and the voltage standing wave ratio. In certain applications, the cable tester is also used to analyze not just the cable but the passive payload attached to the cable as well. The report has therefore considered such cable testers that are capable of providing feedback regarding the load attached as well. Cable testers also examine the cables that are physically connected within a LAN architecture. Many network integrators have found that cable failures cause 65% of the LAN downtimes. Thus, cable testers have a huge potential in the ICT industry where these devices are used to find the failure and control LAN downtimes.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global cable tester market to grow at a CAGR of 11.69% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global cable tester market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated through the sales of cable testers (also called analyzer and components).
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Cable Tester Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global cable tester market: Anritsu, Keysight Technologies, Fluke, Microtest, and Cirris Systems.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: T&R Test Equipment, HT Instruments, b2 electronic, and Textron.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is demand for advanced software solutions. Test software solutions are an important part of test and measurement equipment as they enhance the capability of the equipment to perform a number of applications. This simplifies the measurement processes for test engineers as well as enables them to choose from a wide variety of cable testers available in the market, resulting in the low-cost implementation of test and measurement instruments.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is demand for connectivity testing equipment. Cable tester manufacturers are coming up with unique techniques such as distance-to-fault (DTF) measurements to maintain a competitive advantage over other firms. To test the accuracy of the signals and the frequency emitted by electronic devices such as servers and computers, cable testers are used. Cable testers can ensure the proper functioning of cables as they analyze electromagnetic signals. Whether installing new cables or troubleshooting the existing cables in applications such as mobile backhaul, network infrastructure, and data centers, cable testers play an important role in the installation process.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is rapid changes in technology. One of the major challenges for the leading global vendors in the cable tester market is to keep pace with the evolving wireless standards and deliver superior performance without increasing the system cost. The demand for communication devices is growing due to the changing telecom standards such as 3G and LTE. LTE advanced and the upcoming 5G have forced network equipment manufacturers such as Ericsson, Cisco, Nokia, and Huawei to reinvent the products and develop faster, smaller, and more efficient products. This has prompted test equipment manufacturers to increase the development and adoption of new technologies to ensure standard conformance with wireless systems as a whole. Cable tester manufacturers need to incur high costs to cope with these changes.
