A signal generator is a test & measurement instrument is used in the test setups and various electronic developments and troubleshooting. It converts various transducer outputs into useful data. It provides an excitation to the electronic measurement systems and processing circuits. The excitation that is provided by the signal generator is either in the form of constant D.C. signal or stable A.C. signal. It is also used to vary the amplitude and frequency of the excitation.

Some of the major types are Arbitrary Waveform Generator, Radio Frequency Signal Generator, Microwave Signal Generator, Pitch Signal Generator, Audio and Video Signal Generator. They are operating in high end technologies; namely Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA), Enhanced Data Rates for GSM evolution (EDGE), LTE (Long Term Evolution), Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM), 3G Wireless, Wireless Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX), and so on. All the different products and the technologies are described in the report.

All the above mentioned products are used for various applications as per the requirement of the end-users. Different applications and end-users of the signal generator are also described in the report. In the report, drivers, restraints, and opportunities for the market are also covered. Communications Industry continuously drives the growth of this market. Increasing establishment of the manufacturing plants in the APAC region is another major driving factor. The increasing pricing pressure and reluctance to invest on new technologies are some of the major barriers in the market.

In-depth competitive landscape for each player and distribution of the products on the basis of the major manufacturers is provided in the report. Some of the major contracts like the contract between Agilent Technologies Inc. (U.S.) and U.S. Army are described in the report. Other than the contract the major acquisitions, collaborations and partnerships which boost the sales of Signal Generators are covered in the report.

On the basis of different Technologies

Different types of technologies are used for the operation of the signal generator. In the report, different technologies are covered on the basis of different generations like 2G, 3G and 3.5/4G. Several technologies are covered under these three generations such as Global System for Mobile Phones (GSM), Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA), Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA), Long Term Evolution (LTE) and others. In the current scenario, GSM is in demand but it is expected that in the coming five years LTE technology lead in the signal generator industry.

On the basis of different Products

The market is classified into three major product categories namely, general purpose, special purpose and function generators. All the above categories are classified into their sub-types. General Purpose signal generators are the most important category which is further classified into three types, namely. Arbitrary waveform generator, RF and Microwave. Different product categories and their sub-types are described in the report.

On the basis of different Applications

Signal generators are used for various applications, namely, designing, testing, certification, manufacturing, troubleshooting and repairing. Designing is the most important application which holds the major market share in the overall industry in 2012. Certification application is expected to witness a significant growth in the next five years because of the technological advancement in the automotive industry and consumer electronics sector.

On the basis of different End-Users

All the applications mentioned above are used by different end-users like telecommunication, electronic manufacturing sector, industrial, aerospace & defense, automotive, educational sector, medical sector and others. Telecommunication sector drives the overall market in the current scenario but it is expected that within five years due to modernization and increasing competition industrial sector leads in the overall market.

On the basis of Geographical Regions

Geographical analysis covers North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and ROW. Market segmentation of different products, applications and end-user verticals on the basis of different geographical regions are also provided in the report. APAC is expected to hold the major market share in the coming five years because of the huge potential market for the signal generators in the electronics manufacturing sector, telecommunication sector and so on.
