Local Demand is Key to the Future Growth of Oscilloscopes

The oscilloscopes market is the largest and fastest-growing product category in the general purpose test equipment industry. Although a global developed market, the Asia Pacific is the largest market for oscilloscopes. In this study, key industry challenges, drivers, and restraints pertaining to the Asia Pacific region are identified and discussed. It also features details on market size, future growth, and market shares in key countries such as China and India. The base year for the analysis is 2012 with the forecast period ending in 2019. A detailed market share analysis is included, identifying the companies expected to gain share against their competitors during the forecast period.

Executive Summary

• In the global oscilloscopes market, the Asia-Pacific share has grown significantly over the past Xyears, resulting in the position of largest region for oscilloscopes worldwide.
• In 2012, the market for oscilloscopes in Asia-Pacific reached $X million, significantly larger than that of North America or Europe. The region is most likely underestimated as many purchases are made in developed regions but the instruments are shipped to and used in Asia.
• China is the 2nd largest market for oscilloscopes globally. There is defense business in this country as well as radio frequency (RF) and digital opportunities. The electronics industry generates significant demand for oscilloscopes in Asia. In countries such as Japan and Korea, there are large digital customers such as Samsung and Sony. Japan is also typically involved in new, high-end technologies.
• The Asia-Pacific region continues to grow, although not at the same rate due to a slowdown in China, which affects demand for oscilloscopes. The country is strong in manufacturing, but labor costs are rising, leading multinationals to look for lower-cost countries for their manufacturing operations including that of Latin America.
• The region, overall, is also a lot more sensitive to price than other regions of the world. Price pressure is intensified by the presence of locally-grown companies such as Rigol Technologies, Good Will Instruments Co. Ltd, and SIGLENT.
• Although labor costs in China are increasing, the impact of this restraint on the market is alleviated by Southeast Asia. Manufacturing companies are considering including Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, and the Philippines.
• There is increased focus on automation in China that augurs well for test systems based on modular standards like PXI.
• Increasing demand for higher bandwidth oscilloscopes in the region is expected, which will be boosted by a growing focus on research and development (R&D).
• There is interest from multinationals to take advantage of the growing number of engineers in Asian countries and their lower costs compared to that of engineers in developed countries. However, the rise of the local demand for a variety of products is also driving multinationals to increase manufacturing and R&D facilities in Asia.

CEO’s Perspective

1. Proliferation and increasing complexity of electronics in the communications, automotive, consumer and industrial electronics, and defense industries drive demand for oscilloscopes in Asia-Pacific.
2. R&D activity is growing in the region due to the globalization of R&D and increasing spending in Asian countries (especially China).
3. Due to high labor costs in China, foreign direct investments (FDI) are coming to southeastern Asian countries, spurring opportunities for oscilloscopes vendors in this part of the region.
4. The rise of local demand for a variety of products involving electronics in the region is expected to sustain demand for oscilloscopes in Asia-Pacific in the long term.
5. From a competitive perspective, leaders are facing greater competition from homegrown companies, such as RIGOL Technologies in Asia-Pacific, than any other region of the world.
