The top three revenue-generating cable segments in the global cable tester market are discussed below:

Ethernet cables

The cable tester market for Ethernet cables accounted for generating over 37% of the overall market revenue in 2016. Ethernet cable is one of the most popular network cables used for wired networks, and a thorough testing of the product before selling or buying is essential for the customer,” says Jujhar Singh, a lead analyst at Technavio for embedded systems research.

Cable testing is an essential part of installing a network. Cable testers are needed for every step from trouble shooting till safety precautions to find flaws and take necessary action. Thus, the global cable tester market for Ethernet cables is witnessing growth due to applications such as corporate networking in both IT as well as other manufacturing units.

Fiber optic cables

Fiber optic cables are used in Datacom networks for critical links and providing connectivity for campus networks to corporates, enterprises, universities, and more. Fiber optic cables increase the network speed and bandwidth and decrease the loss limitations. Most commonly used types of fiber optic cables include the single mode, multimode, and plastic optical fiber (POF).

Better data access, faster Internet connectivity, and other advantages have made the fiber optic cable market an attractive market for investors. The increased mobile data traffic has increased the demand for fiber optic technology, enabling better quality of service and experience, which have become prerogatives for the network carriers. This will, in turn, require cable testers for the better testing and control of the services provided by network carriers to their subscribers.

Coaxial cables

The global cable tester market by coaxial cables testers is expected to be the fastest-growing segment. The wide array of applications of coaxial cables including commercial radio communications, undersea cable systems, closed-circuit television, home video equipment, and broadband Ethernet are expected to drive this growth,” says Jujhar.

A coaxial cable tester is used to identify the carrier signals and protect those signals against the external sources such as electromagnetic interference. Coaxial cables are used to transmit a wide variety of signals, including high definition television (HDTV), digital video, composite video, component video, S-video, and FM. Thus, the demand for cable testers is increasing in the above-mentioned commercial applications.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:
