Automated Test Equipment (ATE) Market Size By Product (Memory ATE, Non-Memory ATE, Discrete ATE), By Application (Automotive, Consumer Electronics, Defense, IT & Telecom, Others), Competitive Analysis & Forecast, 2012 - 2020

Industry Overview

Global Automated Test Equipment (ATE) market size is expected to reach USD 4,476.2 million by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 2.5% from 2014 to 2020. Increasing design complexity coupled with need for effective testing is expected to drive demand growth over the next six years. It offers more features and amplified device integration. Increasing consumer demand for improved functionality, bandwidth, and performance designing are factors responsible for the industry growth. In addition, manufacturers are adopting high-level product differentiation that invariably demands high complexity in ATE designs.

Increasing need for optimizing power management in order to ensure longer battery life for consumer electronic devices is expected to fuel ATE market growth over the forecast period. The expansion of smartphones, tablets and system-on-chip (SoC) based products is generating demand for greater functionality. Smartphone proliferation has also been instrumental in escalating the demand for semiconductors, which has further fostered automated test equipment market.

Key test point techniques analyzed and reported in this automated test equipment market report include wafer probing, burn-in and final test. Wafer probing is expected to lose share over the forecast period. It accounted for over 39% of the overall share in 2013. This can be attributed to the miniaturization of semiconductor devices and significant cost-benefits associated. Final test accounted for over 33% of the overall share in 2013.

Strong need for effective testing is expected to spur demand over the forecast period from 2014 to 2020. The benefits offered by semiconductor testing include reduced-cost, miniaturization of components, improved flexibility, modularity, technical capability and reliability. Besides this, high-level integration including RF and wireless technology and rapid product development are the new norms driving the demand for effective testing solutions. In addition, technological proliferation, increasing consumer demand for improved product functionality and the need to gain competitive advantage have bolstered the need for effective testing solutions. 

Dependency on semiconductor chips is expected to pose a challenge to the growth of ATE market. The fluctuations in demand for semiconductor chips has led to a gap in the demand and supply, thus industry participants experience volatile revenue that adversely affects their profitability. For instance, in 2011, reduction in production of electronic products owing to natural disasters such as the floods in Thailand and the Great East Japan Earthquake has resulted in significant losses for industry participants.

ATE enables Telecom Equipment Manufacturers (TEMs) in ensuring consistent quality for their products, and Communication Service Providers (CSPs) to enhance their network in order to support new technologies.

Consumer electronics sector is the second largest application segment and was valued over USD 1,000.0 million in 2013, growing at a CAGR of over 3% from 2014 to 2020. Increasing popularity of consumer devices such as tablets, smartphones and computers is expected to be the key growth driver. Defense sector is the fastest growing application sector and expected to reach over USD 170.0 million by 2020.

Regional Overview

Asia Pacific automated test equipment market dominated demand with valuation of over USD 2,000.0 million in 2013, growing at a CAGR of over 2% from 2014 to 2020. This can be attributed to a large number of semiconductor industries in the region. In addition, innovations in technology and changing customer needs have also contributed positively towards the regional growth.

North America was the second largest regional industry and accounted for over 15% of the total demand share in 2013. Heavy investment in innovation for defense applications, along with developments in the telecommunication sector is expected to drive the region over the forecast period.

Competitive Market Share

The global automated test equipment market share is highly consolidated, with the top three companies accounting for over 80% of the total share in 2013. 

Teradyne Inc. emerged as the leading company in the global industry and accounted for over 40% of the total consumption in 2013. Rest of the companies such as Advantest Corporation, LTX-Credence Corporation, Yokogawa, Aeroflex Inc., Advint LLC, Anritsu Co., Cal-Bay Systems and National Instruments Corp. among others accounted for approximately 60% of the industry share in 2013.
