Automotive and transportation segment projected to lead the test and measurement equipment market during forecast period
Among the end-use applications considered, automotive and transportation is estimated to be the largest contributor to the overall test and measurement equipment market in 2018. The increasing number of automotive manufacturing hubs in the world implementing advanced automation technologies for production is expected to boost the demand for test and measurement equipment offerings. Additionally, Ethernet (IEEE 802.3) is a widely used protocol in automotive manufacturing. In the automotive industry, many processes are controlled through computers, and Ethernet is one of the most suitable protocols for computer-enabled communication.

General purpose test equipment segment to grow at the highest CAGR in the test and measurement equipment market during forecast period
The general purpose test equipment segment includes oscilloscopes, signal generators, digital multimeters, logic analyzers, spectrum analyzers, Bit Error Rate Tester (BERT), network analyzers, power meters, electronic counters, modular instrumentation, Automated Test Equipment (ATE), and power supplies. The characteristics of the aforementioned types of equipment include large size, bulky displays, slightly complicated control systems, and customer user interfaces. This scenario is expected to change to an extent, owing to the demand for small-sized tools and integration of various test and measurement equipment into one offering.

Most of the test and measurement equipment now offers high bandwidth, greater accuracy, and higher resolution than that in the earlier equipment. Some of the prominent applications for equipment under this category are IT & telecommunications, healthcare, automotive, and industrial sectors.

North America to lead the test and measurement equipment market
The test and measurement equipment market, by geography, has been broadly classified into North America, Europe, APAC, and RoW. In terms of value, North America is estimated to account for the largest share of the market in 2018 owing to the fact that a majority of the leading industry players have a presence in this region. The market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2018 and 2024.
