Voice&Data - - CONTENT -

Since the in­vest­ments in the over­all in­fra­struc­ture were nom­i­nal in com­par­i­son to that of pre­vi­ous years, the Test & Mea­sure­ment mar­ket wit­nessed a nom­i­nal growth at 4.4% in FY 2013-14.

The growth ma­jorly came from tele­com R&D and man­u­fac­tur­ing within the coun­try while op­er­a­tor net­works that con­trib­utes the max­i­mum to the Test & Mea­sure­ment mar­ket in In­dia did not con­trib­ute much.

How­ever, as the aug­men­ta­tion of net­works is ex­pected to con­tinue and op­er­a­tors are strength­en­ing their data as well as voice net­works, both test­ing and mea­sure­ment be­comes a key el­e­ment. At the same time, en­able­ment and roll­out of newer net­works like 4G/LTE as well as the ser­vices like Video ser­vices, the net­works need to be thor­oughly tested and mea­sured for per­for­mance and strength. This could re­sult in the seg­ment bounc­ing back by wit­ness­ing a higher sin­gle digit or early dou­ble digit growth in the year to come. At the same time, as fo­cus is to­wards in­di­g­e­niza­tion of prod­ucts, in­clud­ing that of tele­com equip­ments and de­vices, the R&D and man­u­fac­tur­ing will see in­creased con­tri­bu­tion to the over­all Test & Mea­sure­ment mar­ket in years to come.

Test and Mea­sure­ment mar­ket was es­ti­mated at Rs 1,019 crore for FY 2013-14 as against Rs 976 crore in fis­cal 2012-13.
