About the Signal Generator Market
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. The signal generator provides an accurate range for measurement of repetitive waveforms. It also acts as a single shot triggering source by synchronizing the horizontal sweep to the proper point of signal in the test and measurement industry. This enables the users to stabilize repetitive waveforms and capture single shot waveforms.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global signal 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 signal generator market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, Technavio considers the revenue generated from the total consumption of signal generators globally. The report does not include revenue generated from the aftermarket service of the product.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Signal Generator Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global signal generator market: Keysight Technologies, National Instruments, Agilent Technologies, Anritsu, B&K Precision, Giga-tronics, Rohde & Schwarz, and Tektronix.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A key trend which is boosting market growth is the emergence of multipurpose generators. It has become necessary to evaluate interferences from other built-in systems because of the different frequency bands for a number of multifunction receivers such as navigation systems and mobile phones. The multipurpose generators or devices offer different functionalities such as dual RF and dual waveform with high function and baseband performance. For instance, Anritsu's MG3710A generators offer dual RF and dual waveform, which enable a single MG3710A to provide an output of up to four modulated signals.”
According to the report, a key growth driver is the increased adoption of electronic devices. Rapid advances in technologies like wireless, fast processors, and signal transferring has led to an increase in the demand for devices such as signal generators, which testify and validate the flow of current in the internal circuit. The adoption of advanced technologies and their compatibility with devices such as smartphones and tablets has led to the use of signal generators during and after the production process. The increased use of sensors and other advanced technologies worldwide has increased the need for the use of signal generators during pre-production processes such as designing and post manufacturing to check the conformance and accuracy of products.
Further, the report states that a major factor that could hamper market growth is the rise in demand for used and rental test equipment. The demand for used and rental general purpose test equipment such as signal generators has increased significantly. End-users in the signal generator market are becoming price-sensitive. This had a negative impact on signal generator manufacturers because it reduced the demand for new test equipment and resulted in a reduced cash flow for vendors. The global economic slowdown has compelled companies to reduce their prices to increase the sales of their products. Competitive pricing will have an adverse effect on the vendors' margins.
