The surging demand for mobile data offloading, owing to increasing number of mobile data users is one of the prominent market growth drivers. The growing demand for small cells and HetNets is further augmenting the market growth. The increased investment in NFV is making the wireless test equipment market financially strong.

The major opportunities that the companies in the wireless test equipment market can take leverage of include growing penetration of long-term evolution (LTE) in the developing countries and prospects from the emerging 5G technology. Most of the developing countries lie in Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World regions. The two regions are expected to account for 49% of the global wireless test equipment revenue by 2022. The market for wireless test equipment is expected to witness highest growth in Asia-Pacific during the forecast period.

LTE is a standard for high-speed wireless communication for mobile phones and data terminals. It is based on GSM/EDGE and UMTS/HSPA technologies. The fixed broadband household and small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) penetration is low in most part of Asia-Pacific. Mobile broadband is expected to be the major form of broadband access for majority of people in South East Asia and Oceania. This is likely to lay opportunity for operators to fulfill the need for home broadband and SME solutions through alternative access technologies, such as LTE. In 2015, a mere 5% of the total mobile subscriptions in South East Asia and Oceania were LTE. This is expected to cross 40% by 2021. This growth is likely to augment the wireless test equipment market in the region during the coming years.

The continuous up gradation of the wireless telecommunication is impelling the wireless test equipment providers to enhance their existing offerings. The major players including Ixia, Anritsu and Viavi modified some of their products during 2016.

Ixia‘s modified threat intelligence gateway ‘ThreatArmour’ includes both cloud-powered centralized management and mobile access to essential security-related information, to improve IT operational efficiency and ensure rapid response to potential network breaches. Ixia also introduced enhancement in its application and threat intelligence processor (ATIP). It would enable customers to rapidly extract security metadata, including indicators of compromise (IOC) and fast track the information to reporting tools to speed Mean Time to Identify (MTTI) and Mean Time to Respond (MTTR) to security threats and malicious behavior.
