This industry research report identifies Anritsu, Keysight Technologies, Fluke, Microtest, and Cirris Systems as the key vendors in the global cable tester market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by cable types (D-sub, USB, and firewire, coaxial, fiber optic, Ethernet), by application (telecommunication, aerospace and defense, machinery, and consumer electronics), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global cable tester market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global cable tester market will grow steadily at a CAGR of around 12% by 2021. The rising need for connectivity testing equipment is identified as one of the primary growth factors for this market. Cable tester manufacturers are introducing unique techniques such as distance-to-fault (DTF) measurements to maintain a competitive advantage over other firms. Cable testers are mainly used to test the accuracy of the signals and the frequency emitted by electronic devices such as servers and computers. Moreover, cable testers can also ensure the proper functioning of cables as they analyze electromagnetic signals. From installing new cables or troubleshooting the existing ones in applications such as mobile backhaul, network infrastructure, and data centers, cable testers play a vital role in the installation process.

In terms of geographic regions, APAC will be the major revenue contributor to the cable tester market throughout the forecast period. The rise in industrial automation and the increased utilization of cable testers in the defense sector to check the connectivity and continuity of the cables in weapons will drive the growth of the market in APAC. Also, the increased investments by countries such as India and China towards the defense sector will also propel the growth of network cable tester market in the region.

Competitive landscape and key vendors  

Owing to the presence of several global and local vendors, the cable tester market appears to be highly fragmented. Though the local and regional vendors offer application-specific products, the well-established players account for the maximum market shares. With the increasing need to investigate and adopt optical components and systems for many land, sea, air, and space applications, the aerospace and defense industry will offer significant growth opportunities to the vendors in the network cable tester market.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Anritsu
  • Keysight Technologies
  • Fluke
  • Microtest
  • Cirris Systems

The other prominent vendors in the market are T&R Test Equipment, HT Instruments, b2 electronic, and Textron.

Segmentation by cable types and analysis of the cable tester market

  • D-sub, USB, and firewire
  • Coaxial cables
  • Fiber optic
  • Ethernet Cables

During 2016, the Ethernet cables segment accounted for the major shares of the cable tester market. However, the fiber optic cables will lead the market by the end of the forecast period due to the increasing network speeds and bandwidth and the decrease in loss limitations. Furthermore, the increase in mobile data traffic also increases the demand for the adoption of fiber optic technology for the better testing and control of services provided by network carriers.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the cable tester market

  • Telecommunication
  • Aerospace and defense
  • Machinery
  • Consumer electronics

According to this market research report, the consumer electronics segment accounted for the maximum shares of the network cable tester market during 2016. This segment will retain its market dominance due to the increased usage of cable testers to test the various components of electronic devices such as automated measurement systems in laboratories and industrial facilities. Additionally, the rapid growth of the electronics industry and the growing demand for technology will also boost the need for cable testers in this segment.
