Increasing Demand for Boosting Reliability of Electronics is a Prominent Trend

Notable technological developments have been made in electronics in the past decade, which has had an extensive and vivid impact on the lives of humankind. Industries such as oil and gas, automobiles, renewable energy, wireless communications and infrastructure, and many others have adopted innovative electronics to function smoothly. The rising utilization of consumer electronics in the past decade has massively increased. This has led to manufacturers using the 'push' strategy, wherein many electronics are pushed into the market, and consumers can buy them at ease. The high supply has made it necessary to maintain the safety of these electronics to avoid accidents, namely, overheating, data loss, and more. The need for the product is observable to help in electronic testing. This factor is expected to augment the market growth in the forecast period.

Surging Utilization of Electric Vehicles is a Vital Trend

The growing obligation to conserve the earth's resources and be environmentally sustainable has given rise to the demand for electric vehicles. The International Energy Agency's Global EV Outlook 2020 reported that the sales of electric cars exceeded 2.1 million globally in 2019 as compared to 2018. Electric cars were responsible for 2.6% of the total global car sales, recording a 40% year-on-year increase. As technological development in the electrification of two/three-wheelers, buses, and trucks progresses, and the demand for them grows, electric vehicles are expanding considerably.

Ambitious policy announcements, such as in 2019, suggestions of an ongoing shift from direct subsidies to policy approaches that rely on regulatory and other structural measures, namely, zero-emission vehicles mandates, have provided the auto industry with significant goals. Consumers that support the transition in an economically sustainable manner further augment the trend. With the rising number of EVs and fuel cells, the demand for battery testing equipment has increased. This is one of the vital factors that is expected to drive the market growth.


Growing Wireless Communications and Infrastructure to Aid the Market Dynamics

Growing investments in wireless communications and infrastructure would accelerate the wireless and power supply testing to ensure the efficient operation of electronic components. The increasing demand for smartphones and mobile phones, especially in developing nations, has boosted the growth of wireless infrastructure. Mobile phones, too, require batteries to function, which require accurate testing to avoid accidents.

Even aerospace, defense, and government services utilize wireless communication devices to communicate even in remote areas. It has become imperative to ensure the efficient operation of all components due to the increased reliance on wireless communications in every field of operation. Hence, rising investments in wireless communications and infrastructure would propel the demand for electronic load during the projected period.

Surging Renewable Energy Consumption to Drive the Market

The increasing environmental conscience amongst humans and the necessity to reduce carbon emissions are the major driving forces for renewable energy generation. The growth of the renewable energy sector has led governments to set up massive plants worldwide to generate power from hydro, solar, wind, and tidal resources. The increasing percentage of power generation using renewable resources can also be attributed to the requirement of relatively more minor capital than oil and gas.

According to the International Renewable Energy Agency's Renewable Capacity Statistics 2021, the total renewable capacity of the world rose by 10.3% in 2020 to 2799094 MW. The energy generated by renewable resources must first be stored in batteries for further consumption. This factor is anticipated to drive the growth of the market in the forecast period.


High Capital Cost to Restrain Growth of the Electronic Load Industry

These instruments are used to provide a programmable load while testing voltage and current for AC and DC applications. Recently they offer modes like Constant Current (CC) mode, Constant Resistance (CR) mode, Constant Voltage (CV) mode, and Constant Power (CP) mode. Due to the increased precision and specialized manufacturing, they have high initial prices. Their high capital cost could also be attributed to the low economy of scale. These instruments, with specific functionalities, have a high capital cost, thereby adversely affecting the growth rate of the electronic load industry.
