Automotive test equipment (ATE) is a machine that is designed to perform quality checks on different automotive devices, referred to as devices under test (DUT). ATE is a computerised machine that controls automated systems, to test devices for hardware; software; electronics and semiconductors. Major applications served by the automotive test equipment are fuel dilution, lubricant aeration, and measuring the oil consumption of the automotive engine. The necessity for automotive devices quality check increases the demand for ATE that ensures the manufacturing of high-performance vehicles to meet all safety needs for the end users of an automotive vehicle. This increase in demand for safe and reliable vehicles is expected to complement the product growth over the forecast period.
Manufacturers are trying to adopt new technologies such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), electronic control units (ECU), data loggers, crash impact simulation and electric vehicle testing mechanism. Adoption of ADAS technology increases the demand for test systems that are adaptable and reliable for the automated driverless vehicles. For instance, Robert Bosch GmbH (Germany) is developing a range of driver assistance vehicles using ADAS technology to meet specific requirements of users along with providing safety systems. The technologies mentioned above prevailing in the market are expected to drive the automotive test equipment’s industry in the near future.

The implementation of stringent laws by various governments regarding the emission of harmful gases is leading to the rise in requirements for various tests of automotive parts and components, aiding to the growth of the automotive test equipment. For instance, The American Clean Energy and Security Act was enacted in 2009 in the US to encourage clean energy development. Similarly, The Climate Change Act was enacted in 2008 in the UK to ensure greenhouse gas reduction. The automatic test equipment suppliers and OEM’s are making huge investments in R&D activities for the development of advanced test equipment, due to the growing demand for safety and comfort features. For instance, in June 2018, Siemens announced the new Simcenter Testlab Software, a set of analytics, data collection and modelling software, that is likely to provide a testing platform for several automotive scanning tools. Increase in demand for electric and driverless vehicles increases expected to drive the demand for advance electronic architecture; this, in return, is expected to become a major factor for market growth.
Some of the major players in the automotive test equipment market include Robert Bosch GmbH, Horiba, Honeywell, Siemens, Delphi, Autel, Sinfonia, Actia S.A., Advantest Corp., Softing AG and Teradyne Inc., Denso, AVL, Sierra Instruments and others.

Asia Pacific is expected to observe lucrative growth in the forecast period, as countries such as China, India, South Korea and Japan are emerging as a hub for automotive production during the forecast period. Key players such as Horiba (Japan), Autel (China), and Sinfonia (Japan) are adopting new emerging technologies to make safe automated vehicles. For instance, Horiba is applying the smart emission measurement systems and automotive test systems for minimizing the real-world driving emissions. The rise in Foreign Investments due to improved FDI policies by the Indian government will drive the Indian automotive market in the near future. For instance, in October 2018, the Government of India released the draft of National Policy on Electronics (NPE), which has estimated investment of US$ 400 billion in the electronics manufacturing industry over the forecast period. Additionally, with the help of Make in India campaign, India is on the path of becoming a hi-tech automotive manufacturing hub and thus is expected to increase the demand of automotive test equipment market. Moreover, the growing sales and production of electric and driverless vehicles in North America is expected to accelerate the market growth in the near future.
