- Spectrum Analyzer Market Research, By Type (Swept Tuned Spectrum Analyzer, Vector Signal Spectrum Analyzer, Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer), Frequency Range (Less than 6 GHz, 6–18 GHz, More than 18 GHz), Form Factor, End-User — Global Forecast till 2023
A spectrum analyzer is an electronic device that is used to display variations in the signal strength. Spectrum analyzers have a close resemblance to oscilloscopes. Spectrum analyzers are used for research and study purposes in universities and laboratories and for designing, manufacturing, or repairing electronic equipment.
The global spectrum analyzer market was valued at $1,125.1 million in 2017 and is expected to reach $1,758.1 million by the end of the forecast period with a CAGR of 8.2%.
Spectrum analyzers are ordered in bulk, due to which the buyers’ concentration is high. Spectrum analyzer manufacturing involves various components such as probes, function generators, control systems, display units, and storage memory. The manufacturers of spectrum analyzers play a vital role in manufacturing these equipment for testing and maintenance of electronic devices. These component manufacturer provide enhanced spectrum analyzers for automotive parts testing, computer peripherals testing, battery-based telecom equipment, and others.
However, the spectrum analyzer market is refrained by high cost of specialized spectrum analyzers. The rising awareness about expenses related to spectrum analyzers among organizations of varied sizes has driven scrutiny from financial directors and controllers across different industries. This has led companies to devise strategies to manage the costs of the equipment better. Companies have started opting for different acquisition means, including rental and leasing services for spectrum analyzers.
