- Test Yearly & Quarterly Market Shares
SOC Tester was the brightest spot in the ATE market in 2019. Its sales surged by double digits for the fourth consecutive year against an ATE market where sales shrunk over 10% in 2019. Much of the strength in SOC Test was driven by increasing chip complexity in mobile devices and new technologies like 5G, Wi-Fi 6, and AI. This has led to longer testing times, driving the need for more testers, which has more than offset the sluggish growth in unit volumes. With memory IC sales plunging in 2019, Memory Tester was the worst performing segment with sales falling by more than a third. Linear & Discrete Testers fared a bit better than Memory with sales declining by mid-teens.
