The global communications test and measurement market size was valued at USD 6.2 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 25.08 billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 15% from 2022 to 2030.
The integrated services and test equipment are known as "communication test and measurement products" (CTMP), offer high-quality services to the equipment makers as well as effective QoS and CAPEX to the network operators. System integrators, businesses, producers of mobile devices, producers of equipment, and suppliers of communication services all use these items. These products can be used for a wide range of maintenance, deployment, and design tasks. It aids in cutting operational costs, introducing new services, increasing network productivity, and delivering high-quality services to broadband service providers, equipment manufacturers, and network operators.
Communications test and measurement enables network rollout, instrument management, calibration, and repair technology. Additionally, it guarantees that the goods meet all applicable international standards. Using technologies like Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and Internet Protocol TV, these solutions guarantee that broadband service providers provide their users with high-quality experiences and efficient service administration (IPTV).

Due to the introduction of 5G communications, IoT, gigabit-to-the-home broadband, and the cloud, networks all over the world are undergoing revolutionary changes. Since fibre-optic communication is the only technology able to keep up with the exponential rise in bandwidth demand across all segments, all of these networks rely on it. Today's networks have stricter performance requirements than ever before, making it essential to test networks and equipment in both lab and production settings over the duration of the network lifecycle. Engineers want tools for design validation and production that give precision, speed, and bandwidth to advance device development as higher-bandwidth technologies like 5G enter the mainstream. Service providers need a comprehensive testing solution to make sure their network can fulfil performance and accessibility criteria while preserving QoS for mission-critical phone, video, and data traffic in order to meet the variable bandwidth requirements of services. Solutions to assess performance and capacity are now required in the communication and networking industry due to the rapid changes in network circulation from voice to integrated voice, video, and data. The switch to 5G has increased services and quality because of its superior modulation and antenna techniques.
Research and Development in wired and cellular technologies, including Ethernet and fibre optics, which can deliver speeds of up to 400 Gbps, as well as cellular technologies like long-term evolution (LTE) and long-term evolution advanced (LTE-A), is anticipated to assist the expansion of this market.
A product's functionality must be verified using a variety of testing techniques and testing equipment, which results in greater testing and skilled labour expenses. The communication test and measurement ecosystem's end users are very cost-conscious. Instead of spending more money on new and expensive solutions, they frequently opt to buy inexpensive tests and measuring equipment. Since end-users are unable to pass on the rising costs to customers, there is a strong push to undertake more testing for less money. Another discernible trend is heightened competition between sellers of chipsets and producers of test apparatus to select solutions for one chipset or another. Vendors of communication tests and measurements are constrained by the reduction in testing time, which results in significant cost reductions for OEMs. Additionally, businesses want to keep testing expenses as low as possible to stay up with development costs. Overall, test and measurement products have a high capital component. To keep up with emerging technologies, businesses must work on their product lines, which necessitates frequent software and hardware upgrades and raises maintenance costs.
It has become crucial for digital networks to organise their communication channels to use trustworthy test and management services. In an organisation, keeping track of communications involves using a variety of strategies and techniques. The need for communications test and management services is rising due to the increased consumption of bandwidth and the advent of several next-generation technologies. This industry should continue to grow at a steady rate because of the rising demand. The complexity and volume of wireless devices are also expected to increase, which will propel the market forward. Rising data consumption and the anticipated requirement for fast, top-notch services are further contributing factors.
In the global market for communication tests and measurements, North America is anticipated to have the greatest market share, while Asia Pacific (APAC) is anticipated to experience the highest CAGR growth over the course of the forecast period. The North American market for communication tests and measurement is anticipated to directly be impacted by the expansion of telecommunication networks and the rise in capital investments by telecom operators and telecommunication equipment manufacturers. In North America, test and measurement equipment will likely be adopted and used extensively in wireless communication and network applications. As mobile technology and communication channels are widely used, the US and Canada, in particular, are quickly implementing communication tests and measurement devices. Most Tier 1 firms offering communication test and measurement solutions, such as National Instruments (US) and Keysight Technologies, are based in the North American region (US).
This communications test and measurement market growth can be segmented on the basis of Test Solutions, Services, Types of Tests, Enterprise Size, End-Users, Regions and Competitors. The market for communication test and measurement test equipment is divided into wired testers and wireless testers. Because there is such a great demand for LTE technologies, the wireless testers segment is the one that generates the most money.
The market is poised to see an extraordinary blossoming for SMEs. SMEs' extensive use of technologies like AI and cloud computing, high-quality VoIP/IPTV services, unheard-of company changes toward 5G communications, and wireless technology all point to the market's expansion.
Tests of communication and measurement Type Market is divided into four categories: enterprise test, lab & manufacturing test, field network test, and network assurance test. Due to the strong demand for its effective solutions, including problem detection quickly, monitoring SLA compliance, and performance QoS management, the network assurance test segment generates the most income.
The field network test is the area where a significant change is anticipated. Equipment and programming are required for testing electronic devices, and the areas under mobile phone testing are research and Development, fabrication or manufacturing, and certification or confirmation testing. The introduction of cutting-edge technology in the cellular market and an increase in bandwidth demand are just two factors influencing the market's velocity.
Segments of the market for communication test and measurement services include managed services, professional & consulting services, and product support services. Due to the increased demand for LTE, IP, and 40G/100G communication technologies, professional & consulting services come in second, followed by product support services, as the greatest revenue-generating segment. This market delivers high-quality networks and services at reasonable prices.
