Radiofrequency (RF) associated with radio waves have the frequency range of 3 hertz to 300 MHZ used for long-range communication. An RF field is an alternating current usually transmitted through an antenna that generates wireless broadcasting or an EMF for communication. The transmitted electromagnetic wave travels through the channel which might be air or water and reach its destination. Radio Frequency (RF) test equipment is used to compute signals that have relatively higher frequency than that of general test equipment capacity to ensure RF components are working properly under electromagnetic environment. With the increasing use of telecommunications devices due to the expansion of technology, surged the demand for RF test equipment. The bottlenecks in this market growth are Design and size of RF test equipment.


RF equipment is used in video broadcasting, telecommunications, satellite communications and radio communications. In addition to their normal function of testing, they also have specialized functions to determine the characteristics of an RF signal. It also has applications in several industrial and healthcare applications.

Market Dynamics:

The market is mainly driven by the growth of telecommunications which is based on radio frequencies that provide wireless connectivity. These RF waves are transmitted and received by the various RF-enabled electronic devices. Hence RF test equipment market surges when the demand for these RF-enabled devices increases. The increasing usage of internet connectivity, Tablets, Mobile phones, Televisions, and microwave ovens are promoting markets for RF-enabled equipment.
