Signal Generators Market Trends




  • Growing automotive industry is driving the market growth




One of the market's driving forces is the automotive industry. The rising popularity of electric vehicles in developing nations could spur market expansion during the predicted period. Signal generators are now required for testing and troubleshooting sensors, solenoids, actuators, primary and secondary ignitions, and communication data streams as a result of the increased use of electronic parts and sensors in automobiles. Signal generators are frequently used in the automotive industry to test in-car entertainment systems and driver assistance technologies like reverse parking sensors and remote keys.


Due to the need for testing during the research and development of autonomous vehicle technologies and hybrid powertrain systems, the need for signal generators has risen recently. Signal generators are being used more and more by international automakers to guarantee the security, excellence, and dependability of the radars and sensors employed in autonomous vehicle technologies. Signal generators check the connectivity of vital systems like radars, sensors, and the main processing unit. Recent developments in electrical and electronic vehicle technology have made signal generators almost essential for testing, troubleshooting, and diagnostics.


There is a new standard to protect GNSS-based devices from the effects of neighboring band interference in addition to the new eCall standards. The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) implemented this standard. The standard makes sure that every new or modified GNSS product introduced in the European Union can resist interference from neighbouring bands and continue to function normally. Signal generators are needed since these systems also need to be tested.


The creation of autonomous vehicles has raised the need for radar-based and sensor-based systems that are used to ensure safe operation. These sensors and radars operate at an ultrasonic frequency with an approximate 40 kHz spectral range. The need for signal generators with frequencies of 50–100 MHz is being driven by new automotive systems, which are being developed in response to an increase in the deployment of in-car entertainment systems and rising R&D expenditures. Thus, driving the Signal Generators market revenue.


Signal Generators Market Segment Insights


Signal Generators Product Insights


The Signal Generators Market segmentation, based on Product, includes general purpose signal generator, special purpose signal generator, and function generator. The market's largest contributor is the general-purpose signal generator segment. To assess the design of circuits, especially those in communication equipment, radiofrequency (RF) signal generators are widely used to generate continuous radio frequency signals with specific qualities. Only the optimal conditions can be produced by an RF signal generator for measuring the test object. It makes no measurements by itself. Both RF and microwave signal generators are extensively used in a wide range of applications, including cellular communications, Wi-Fi, WiMAX, GPS, satellite communications, audio and video transmission, radar, and electronic warfare.


Signal Generators Technology Insights


The Signal Generators Market segmentation, based on Technology, includes 2G, 3G, and 5G - 4G. The 3G segment held the largest market share in 2022. Code division, sometimes referred to as WCDMA (wideband CDMA) or UMTS, is a more capable and flexible technology that distinguishes 3G GSM as a CDMA technology (Universal Mobile Telephone System). WCDMA, as the name suggests, has a higher data capacity while requiring bigger channels than earlier CDMA systems. Anritsu Co. was one of the first companies to develop test solutions for assessing Third Generation Partnership Program Wideband Code Division Multiple Access components and base stations with its MG3681A signal generator and MS8608A transmitter tester.


Signal Generators Application Insights


The Signal Generators Market segmentation, based on Application, includes designing, testing, manufacturing, troubleshooting, repairing, and other applications. In 2022, the designing segment dominated the global market for signal generators. Electronics are being used in a growing number of medical applications these days, from large imaging equipment to smart tags for surgical packs. Signal generators have been used in the design, testing, and engineering of medical electronics.


Signal Generators End User Industry Insights


The Signal Generators Market segmentation, based on End User Industry, includes telecommunication, aerospace and defense, automotive, electronics manufacturing, healthcare, and other end-user industries. The largest market belongs to the telecommunication segment, which is anticipated to expand at a robust CAGR over the forecast period. A signal generator is widely used to produce a stable sinewave. This steady sinewave has numerous uses in telecommunications.
