The global oscilloscope market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.
Oscilloscopes are electronic test instruments that graphically display varying signal voltages and monitor their change over time with sensors. They are used to design, manufacture, and repair electronic equipment. They are also utilized for advanced analysis, digital debugging of intermittent signals, communication mask testing, and repetitive digital design and timing applications. Their digital variants with modern liquid crystal display (LCD) are nowadays widely available, which enable detailed signal measurement, fast calculations, data storage, and automated analysis. At present, manufacturers are developing handheld instruments that are battery-powered, rely on electrically isolated floating inputs and offer the advantage of embedded features.
Healthcare professionals use oscilloscopes for diagnostic approaches, such as monitoring the patients’ heartbeat and brain waves. This, in confluence with the rising prevalence of acute and chronic disorders and improving diagnostic modalities, represents one of the key factors contributing to market growth. Apart from this, the growing emphasis on driver safety and the increasing preference for a comfortable and safe riding experience are positively influencing the adoption of connected motorcycles for advanced assistance features. This, in turn, is increasing the utilization of oscilloscopes in the automotive industry as they help troubleshoot inconsistencies and potential problems in the communication data stream, ignition system, solenoids, sensors, and actuators. Moreover, rising cybersecurity concerns are expanding the application of oscilloscopes in the aerospace and defense industries to achieve fast and accurate measurements. They can also perform regular and consistent validation and determine whether a malfunctioning instrument is distorting a vital signal. Furthermore, the escalating demand for consumer electronics is also contributing to their overall sales to measure waveforms in devices like computers, radio, and television.
