Instrumentation That Improves Productivity & Efficiency Will Continue To Be In Demand In 2022
Spectrum Instrumentation will continue to provide the widest choice of PC-based electronic waveform acquisition and generation products on the market.
The Indian market for consumer electronics will continue to boom in 2022. As such, we can expect high demand for IT equipment and the word “smart” will precede everything from phones to refrigerators. We are in the era of the IoT underlines Oliver Rovini | CTO | Spectrum Instrumentation while talking to Niloy from BISinfotech. In this exclusive interview, the veteran specifies the key T&M trends in 2022 and the emerging markets shaping the T&M business. Edited Excerpts below.
Key Growth Drivers for the T&M Industry and the defining T&M trends in 2022?
Oliver Rovini: Instrumentation that improves productivity and efficiency will continue to be in demand in 2022. That means products will need to be able to make measurements with greater speed and higher levels of automation.
Lucrative emerging markets and your key focuses in these areas?
Oliver Rovini: The world continues to become more connected. As such, we will see the continued rollout of faster networks using wireless and fibre optics technologies. In addition, systems are becoming smarter. Artificial Intelligence and machine learning are now becoming a part of almost every industry. Examples can be found in
manufacturing, where automation and robotics are improving production, and transport, where autonomous vehicles offer less human intervention and a safer travel experience. Measurement tools that can connect remotely to easily integrate with these networks and systems will be in demand.
Any inhibiting factors and impact of COVID-19 shaping the Global Test & Measurement Equipment Market in 2022?
Oliver Rovini: The greatest challenge in the current market is component supply. Manufacturing and transport disruptions, resulting from the COVID pandemic, appear to be a long way from abating. This has put upward pressure on component pricing, which in turn is pushing measurement equipment pricing higher.
India as a market and key trends shaping the Indian market?
Oliver Rovini: The Indian market for consumer electronics will continue to boom in 2022. As such, we can expect high demand for IT equipment and the word “smart” will precede everything from phones to refrigerators. We are in the era of the IoT. And in India, there’s a burgeoning number of tech-savvy consumers that are taking advantage of it. As such, there will be increased demand for the local manufacturing of electronics. Those businesses that can optimize their manufacturing processes, to deliver the best factory efficiency, are likely to be the most successful ones.
Your key strategies for 2022 specifically for the Indian market?
Oliver Rovini: Spectrum Instrumentation will continue to provide the widest choice of PC-based electronic waveform acquisition and generation products on the market. Connecting to the PC world is crucial for cost-effective automated test and measurement applications. This is particularly true for manufacturing, as well as for those applications where digitizer and generator technology needs to be embedded into a system. For example, in medical equipment or scientific instrumentation.
Lastly, any key developments and comments you want to share on the T&M sector?
Oliver Rovini: In 2022 Spectrum Instrumentation is committed to launching a number of new products. These will be capable of testing higher frequency signals with better measurement speed and accuracy. The products will also use the latest computer bus technology, making them ideal for systems that require ultrafast automated test and measurements.
