Global Pulse Generator Market 2016-2020
About Pulse Generators
A signal generator produces signals that are used as a stimulus for electronic measurements. The signals can be adjusted according to the output voltage, impedance, frequency, and modulation of the signal. The circuits in an electronic instrument require some type of input signals, and the amplitude of such signals vary over time. The input signals can be true bipolar AC1 or can vary over a range of DC offset voltages (positive or negative). The waves generated by the signals can be sine waves or analog functions, binary patterns, digital pulses, or a purely arbitrary waves.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global pulse generator market to grow at a CAGR of 9.15% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global pulse generator market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of signal generators to the following end-user segments:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Pulse Generator Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global pulse generator market: nritsu, B&K Precision, Keithley Instruments, Keysight Technologies, National Instruments, Rohde & Schwarz, and Tektronix
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The trend in the industry is high-speed digital-to-analog converter (DAC) providing up to 16-bit resolution. AWGs that are used for the design and test applications enable the users to specify a source waveform in different ways. High-speed DACs provide the foundation for an AWG with a bandwidth to address advanced radio and communications applications. For instance, Agilent's M8190A is a hig- performance, high-bandwidth product that has a 14-bit DAC and is a compact box available in the market with advanced telecommunications architecture extension for instrumentation. It offers one of the best spurious dynamic ranges present in the market.”
According to the report, the demand for test and measurement equipment such as signal generators from the aerospace and defense industry has increased significantly as the majority of countries will upgrade their defense systems used on the field and in aircraft. The signal generators are used to testify the circuits and electronic instruments attached to the aircraft in case of any issues. Furthermore, developing countries China and India are purchasing aircraft (commercial and fighter) from the established players in the industry. For maintenance and servicing of such machines, there is a need of test equipment such as signal generators. For instance, India is in talks with France to buy aircraft. Globally, major countries such as China and India have started investing substantially in defense establishments and manufacturing of defense equipment.
Further, the report states that End-users in the global signal generator market demand additional features at low cost. Given the high investment made in the purchase of test equipment such as signal generators, end-users are careful in their choice of the vendor. They choose a vendor based on his product offering and their own requirement. The need for constant product development with enhanced features and new technologies, a good brand image, aftersales service, continuous product support, and customer service are the factors that customers consider while choosing a vendor. Vendors sometimes need to perform the risk-benefit analysis to target the customers. The changing parameters for the selection also lead to attrition of the customer base for the vendors. The changing selection parameters result in a demand-supply mismatch between the vendors and the customers, resulting in migration of customers to some other vendors fulfilling their buying criteria.
