A new analysis from Frost and Sullivan stated that the Indian wireless communication test equipment market is positioned for good growth with investments in R&D and infrastructure development, bolstered by growth in the handset market and advent of next-generation wireless technologies.

However, accompanying the growth will be challenges such as the demand for lower prices and intense competition. Although the current economic slowdown has temporarily retarded demand, the situation is expected to ameliorate within a quarter to put the market back on its high-growth trajectory.

The analysis, Indian Wireless Communication Test Equipment Market, found that that India base station and air interface test equipment market was worth $5.40 Million in 2007 and is expected to generate revenues of $9.29 Million in 2011. The Indian mobile station test equipment market generated $18.80 million in 2007. The revenues are expected to grow to $39.98 Million in 2011.

The research also covered the markets for drive testers, antenna and cable testers and wireless router test equipment. The following technologies are covered in this research: GSM, CDMA and WLAN/Bluetooth.

"The penetration and growth of mobile phones is a significant driver for the wireless communication testers market," said Frost & Sullivan program manager Deepa Doraiswamy. "India is now the second largest wireless market in the world."

A key factor driving the market for wireless communication test equipment is the phenomenal growth in the mobile phone market over the last four to five years, resulting in a 275 million-subscriber base in 2008. With the addition of close to 10 million users each month, the subscriber base is expected to touch 750 million in 2012. Further, the number of locally made GSM handsets is expected to rise from 72 million in 2008 to 100 million by 2010. Export activity is likely to pick up in the future.
