The global Semiconductor Automated Test Equipment (ATE) market is projected to reach US$4.2 billion by 2024, driven by the “digitalize or die” challenge faced by industries worldwide and the ensuing significance of semiconductors in virtually every equipment and device. Ubiquitous sensing, connectivity, and convergent data are accelerating the velocity of disruption. Surviving the digital disruption is the compelling new reality for industries across the globe. The internet, robotics, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT) and big data are changing the flavor of modern industries. Digital transformation of industries and companies in the emerging digital economy and the imminent mass adoption of digital technologies will amplify the commercial opportunity for semiconductors and spur investments in semiconductor manufacturing and quality control equipment and solutions. Against the backdrop of increasing complexity of testing of semiconductor chips, focus is squarely shed on efficiency and reduction in the cost of testing. Poised to gain in this regard are specialized semiconductor ATE. With a huge semiconductor manufacturing base established over the years, Taiwan represents the largest market worldwide followed by South Korea and China. China is forecast to witness the fastest growth with a CAGR of 5% over the analysis period.
