Oscilloscopes are electronic test instruments which are used for constant varying voltage observation. Observation is usually done as two dimensional plots of one or more signals which are represented as function of time. It is used for analyzing and displaying waveforms of electric signals. Differential measurement, phase, rise time, bandwidth measurement and voltage measurement are few applications of oscilloscopes. Oscilloscopes can be selected on the basis of bandwidth, memory depth, number of channels (digital or analog), sampling frequency, signal integrity, form factor, triggering and cost.Oscilloscopes are available in different forms such as handheld, portable, bench top, and PC-based small boxes that are dedicated to different working environments. There is scope for improvement in equipment as well as in the usage of equipment.Increase in demand for signal storage and self-monitored facilities, expected growth in general purpose test market, increasing intelligence of electronic devices, increasing bandwidth, user interface improvements, modular instrumentation are expected to drive the market.Competition, economic uncertainty and future proof solutions are expected to be market restraints. Connectivity and convergence, social, smart as new green are the new trends in market.
High performance oscilloscopes, mid performance oscilloscopes, low performance oscilloscopes and sampling oscilloscopes are the types of oscilloscopes; of which share of mid performance oscilloscopes have been the highest. Second largest market share has been held by high performance oscilloscopes and low performance oscilloscopes, followed sampling oscilloscopes which held lowest market share.
By technology; oscilloscopes can be classified into digital oscilloscopes, analog oscilloscopes and PC based oscilloscopes. Digital oscilloscopes have held largest market share, second largest market share has been held by PC based oscilloscopes, followed by analog oscilloscopes with lowest market share.Analog oscilloscopes are expected to be replaced by digital oscilloscopes and PC based oscilloscopes. Digital oscilloscopes have advantage over analog oscilloscopes, but prime drawback of digital oscilloscope is limited refresh rate of digital screen.
By region market is segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe and RoW. Largest market share in terms of revenue has been held by Asia Pacific. Second largest market share has been held by North America, followed by Europe and then RoW.
Product innovation has increased the market share growth of many players in past few years. Key market players include Agilent Technologies Inc., Teledyne LeCroy Inc. and Danaher Corp. Other vendors are Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co., Keithley Instruments Inc., GW Instek, National Instruments, ZTEC Instruments, RIGOL Technologies, Yokogawa Electric, Fluke Corp and Tektronix.
