Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavios team said: Emergence of new testing technologies will be a key trend for market growth. The test equipment industry is seeing the emergence of new technologies to meet the growing demand for compact and efficient semiconductor test equipment. This is helping the test equipment vendors to strengthen their offerings. Self-test technologies are being designed into circuits so as to simplify the testing procedures. The introduction of TSV technology is also demanding new testing technologies to ensure the reliability of semiconductors.”

According to the report, miniaturization of electronic devices will be a key driver for market growth. The demand for compact electronics has been aggregating in almost every sector, be it communication device, automotive, industrial manufacturing, or healthcare equipment. This trend has forced the semiconductor IC manufacturers to spend on R&D in order to reduce the size and increase the performance of ICs, which has led to the emergence of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and 3D stacked ICs based on TSVs in which the interconnections, or vias, penetrate the silicon wafer to achieve higher vias density. Due to the introduction of such advanced manufacturing processes, the number of transistors per IC has increased without occupying any extra space, which leads to physical access limitations and increased circuit...
