The North America dominated the Electronic Load Market Share with a share of  30.59% in 2023.

The remarkable development in electronic adoption across the world has led to the growth of demand worldwide. The revolution in various fields such as aerospace, defense, government services, automotive, energy, and wireless communications and infrastructure has led to industrialization and urbanization, making it vital to boost electronic equipment and electric supply reliability. The instrument is used to test AC and DC electronic and electric currents.

The global pandemic caused by the spread of the novel coronavirus has had a damaging impact on every industry. Industries have suffered significant losses in operational time owing to the imposition of stringent rules such as lockdowns to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Consequently, the outbreak of the virus has altered the demand for the electronic load. As the market is majorly dependent on electric and electronic activities, the decline faced by the electric and electronics industry in a long time has also impacted the investment in the instrument. The imposing of lockdowns in various countries and shutting down of businesses except for essential services with minimal workforce affected international and domestic trade. This has directly impacted work in the electronic test equipment industry.

Electronic Load Market Trends

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.

Electronic Load Market Growth Factors

Ongoing Advancements in Electronic Load Technology to Drive Market Growth

Continuous advancements in power electronics enable the development of high-power electronic loads capable of handling increasingly higher voltage and current levels. This allows for the testing of power supplies, batteries, and renewable energy systems at higher capacities, catering to the evolving needs of various industries. Advancements in measurement techniques and signal-processing algorithms enhance the accuracy and precision of electronic loads. This enables more reliable testing and characterization of power sources, leading to better product performance and efficiency. Electronic loads equipped with advanced connectivity options, such as Ethernet, USB, and wireless interfaces, enable remote operation and data logging capabilities. This allows users to monitor and control testing processes remotely, as well as analyze test results more efficiently. Modular electronic load systems offer scalability and customization options to meet specific testing requirements. Users can configure the system with modular load modules, auxiliary modules, and interface cards, allowing for flexible expansion and adaptation to changing testing needs.

For instance, in February 2024, ITECH recently launched the upgraded IT8700P+ series of multi-channel electronic loads, which now supports master-slave parallel configuration across all modules for synchronization. The IT8700P+ module offers a faster dynamic response, achieving a minimum current rise time of under 10 µs, making it ideal for low-voltage load tests. Its enhanced loop speed ensures precise current control without overshoot, enhancing test efficiency. Additionally, the three-stage current range improves precision and reduces ripple, resulting in significantly enhanced performance compared to competitors.

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.
