  • Internet of Things – vendors needs to innovate new products that cater to a diverse level of applications and end-user concerns
  • Security and Integrity – opportunities emerge for companies to develop a more proactive and practical testing approach towards security testing
  • Wireless Technology – developed countries such as Japan and Singapore will bring in more demand hence companies need to strategise to address this demand

Ms. Divya Saiprasad, Principal Consultant at Frost & Sullivan, said: "The Asia-Pacific region offers higher growth rate of most communication test equipment vendors compared to other regions they operate in.

"Several product launches with sizable improvements in sensitivity, resolution, speed and throughput are populating the market due to increased demand."
