3G and 4G to drive Indian Test and Measurement market

The Indian Test and
Measurement market has been driven by the global and domestic demand. The
domestic demand has risen over the past 18 months, to make the Test and
Measurement market realize opportunities from every sector in India.

According to Frost & Sullivan research, major trends that will drive the
Test and Measurement industry in India are urbanization; SMART Cities and SMART
infrastructure; reverse brain drain and CXO positions in developing economies;
SMART clouds; robots: wireless intelligence; future broadband applications;
future global power generation; factory of the future: SMART and GREEN and the
rise of the middle class in 2010.

To address the trends, several Test and Measurement vendors have taken up
Software-defined Instrumentation, which is a significant development in Test
and Measurement.


open, modular architecture of Software-defined Instruments, such as those in
PXI, have proven beneficial to a wide range of industries. As a result, PXI
revenue in Measurement and Automation is expected to grow at Compound Annual
Groth Rate (CAGR) of 17.6 percent through 2014. The performance delivered by
the PXI platform has successfully addressed areas such as RF applications in
radar testing, mobile phone testing, and other wireless applications that
were previously impossible to address with other instrumentation techniques.

Software-defined instruments, also known as virtual instruments, consist of
modular hardware and user-defined software. This gives engineers the ability
and flexibility to combine standard and user-defined measurements with custom
data processing using common hardware components. This important feature has
become extremely critical, as electronic devices such as next-generation
devices, like smart phones including 3G and 4G, adopt different
communications standards.
