The hottest world test instrument market has a goo

  • Detail

With the development of electronic measuring instruments, electronic measuring instruments emerge in endlessly. At present, the competition in the world electronic measuring instrument market is becoming increasingly fierce. In the past, test instrument manufacturers mainly took the high performance of instrument products as a competitive advantage, what manufacturers developed and what users bought. Now it has become that manufacturers strive to develop what users need, and take cheaper, better, faster and easier to use test instruments as their goals

I. Western Europe

the sales value of electronic measuring instruments in Western Europe in 1998 was $2.88 billion, an increase of 30% over the previous year, of which the sales value of communication testing instruments doubled over the previous year, reaching $662million. Except that the sales of oscillograph decreased slightly compared with the previous year, the sales value of other instruments increased compared with the previous year

Second, the United States

in 1998, the sales of electronic measuring instruments in the United States was about $9.6 billion. In terms of foreign trade, the import value of electronic measuring instruments was US $2.147 billion, the export value was US $6.249 billion, and the surplus was US $4.098 billion. The export value of the United States to 10 major trading partners of electronic measuring instruments was 3.48 billion US dollars, the import value was 1.012 billion US dollars, and the surplus was 2.468 billion US dollars, which increased a lot. For the first time, China has become one of the top 10 trading partners of electronic measuring instruments of the United States, and the export of electronic measuring instruments to China is US $93 million. The performance of HP electronic measuring instruments Department is excellent, with an annual growth rate of 20%. At present, it is in a leading position in the market in aerospace, national defense, communication system maintenance, communication equipment production and other testing fields. In order to improve the pre-sales and after-sales service, the electronic measuring instrument department of HP has established a "voice of users" to collect and respond to users' feedback, and opened free pre-sales consultation and after-sales technical support services to further strengthen cooperation with users and provide comprehensive services for users in the way of system integration. China's Hewlett Packard Company has also increased its research and development efforts. The sales of its electronic components division increased by 73% in 1998. In 1999, it will establish the China Communications Technology Center to jointly build laboratories with major domestic research institutions in the fields of optical communications, RF and microwave communications. Tektronix acquired CTE company (a subsidiary of Siemens in Germany), which is famous for communication measurement instruments. According to statistics, its communication test instruments have accounted for 32% of the whole market, while the communication protocol analyzer accounts for 21% of the communication test instrument market. The company is in a leading position in the world in communication protocol analyzer. This acquisition has further strengthened the strength of Tektronix in developing communication test instruments. The sales of integrated circuit test equipment of ate Teradyne company increased by 20% over the previous year, and the sales of 800MHz integrated circuit test equipment and printed board test equipment launched are also promising. Another fluke company, on the basis of its original products, closely followed the development of computer networks and launched a variety of new portable network testing instruments, such as the new product 683/686 enterprise class Fast Ethernet tester

III. Germany

the sales of German electronic measuring instruments in 1998 increased by 8. 5% over the previous year 1%, reaching 538million US dollars. It is expected that the growth trend will continue in 1999. In the whole electronic measuring instrument market, communication testing instruments account for the largest share, accounting for about 27.4%, followed by oscilloscopes, accounting for 16.9%. In addition, microwave measurement of this technology can be called an important breakthrough in the field of carbon fiber composites. Test instruments account for 14.7%, signal analyzers 7.5%, signal generators 4.7%, and logic analyzers 3.1%. Electronic measuring instruments are technology intensive and knowledge intensive products. They are the basic conditions and means for scientific research, production, testing and maintenance of all electronic products. At the same time, they are also an indispensable part of many major engineering supporting facilities and economic construction. It is generally believed that the market prospect of electronic measuring instruments is still optimistic

IV. Japan

in 1998, the annual output value of electronic measuring instruments in Japan was 487.6 billion yen, an increase of 18.5% over the previous year l%。 The output value of semiconductor devices and integrated circuit testers reached 269.8 billion yen, an increase of 34% over the previous year, accounting for 55% of the total output value of electronic measuring instruments. In other words, this kind of testing equipment has become a pillar product of the entire electronic testing instrument market in Japan. The total output value of Japanese transmission characteristic tester reached 39.1 billion yen in 1998, an increase of 20.5% over the previous year, due to the increase in network testing demand. In order to meet the requirements of expanding the scale and speed of local area of enterprises and expanding the application scope of Urban Cable TV, the transmission characteristic tester will still maintain a substantial growth momentum in the future. Although Japan Anli company is affected by the downturn of domestic investment, Europe and the United States synchronize the digital series. The demand for optical communication testing instruments is so keen that Asia fell and Europe and the United States made up. In addition, the output value of switch testers, logic analyzers, component material testers and fast Fourier transform analyzers has increased significantly. The spectrum analyzer continues to be equipped with idle preheating for 10 minutes, but its output value has decreased. The oscilloscope market is stable and the output value decreases, mainly due to the increase of imports. In terms of foreign trade, the export value of Japanese electronic measuring instruments reached 236.7 billion yen in 1998, an increase of 35.9% over the excellent compatibility between Tego glide a116 and color printing system last year. Among all kinds of instruments, the largest increase in export value is communication measuring instruments, with an increase of 65.8%. The largest export value is the testing of integrated circuits and discrete devices, which has become a top priority. The equipment has reached 146.8 billion yen, accounting for 62% of the export value of the entire electronic measuring instruments. The import value of Japanese electronic measuring instruments was 95.479 billion yen, an increase of 10.4% over the previous year. The instrument with the largest import value is also the test equipment for integrated circuits and discrete devices, with a total import of 23.13 billion yen, accounting for 24% of the total import value of electronic measuring instruments

driven by informatization, the world testing instrument market will continue to maintain the momentum of growth
