The Multimeter Market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.20% during the forecast period.

A multimeter is an electronic tool used to measure electric properties such as voltage, current, and resistance when a failure develops in an electrical device. Additionally, it is used to check the continuity of two points in an electrical circuit. Multimeters offer accurate & reliable measurements owing to which they hold high industrial applicability. The multifunctionality features of the multimeter coupled with the growing number of end-users are the main growth drivers for the multimeter industry.

Market Drivers:

  • Rising use of multimeters in aircraft

Multimeters play a crucial role in aircraft maintenance, troubleshooting, and system diagnostics, allowing technicians to measure voltage, current, resistance, continuity, and other electrical parameters. The aerospace sector is experiencing significant growth due to increasing air travel demand, the development of new aircraft models, and technological advancements. Such growth has propelled multimeter demand. For instance, in April 2022, VIAVI Solutions Inc. launched the ALT-9000, a versatile flight line test set for universal radio altimeters (RADALTS). With the ability to test all types of RADALTS, including those with advanced waveforms.

  • Rising technological development with industrialization

Rapid industrialization and a booming electronics industry are majorly driving the global market. The demand for these gadgets among electrical professionals has increased as consumers all over the world use more electronic devices. In addition, as a result of improvements in product manufacturing technology, multimeters can be used in conjunction with other measurement tools including insulation testers and infrared thermometers. Additionally, these devices add properties like polarization index, dielectric absorption, and earth-bond resistance. The increased efficiency and user-friendliness that these features offer lead to an increase in demand for the product.

  • Growing applicability in EV

Digital multimeters are essential for the manufacturing and upkeep of EV charging infrastructure since they guarantee the effective and secure operation of both EVs and the infrastructure. Further, the demand for multimeters will significantly increase as governments launch initiatives to increase EV charging networks and create charging standards. For instance, on January 14, 2022, the Ministry of Power released updated, streamlined guidelines and Standards for EV charging infrastructure. Numerous initiatives have been started by the Indian government to promote the manufacture and use of electric automobiles in the country.

 High demand for analog multimeters

To diagnose electrical and electronic issues, analog multimeters are utilized. The measurement of resistivity in ohms, current in amps, and potential in volts are fundamental functions. Advanced analog multimeters have capabilities such as modes for checking capacitors, diodes, and integrated circuits. The measurement of DC and AC voltage are a few of the precise measurements carried out with the assistance of analog multimeters. The two main types of analog multimeters are benchtop and hand-held. The design of handheld analog multimeters makes it possible to use them while holding them in one hand. Wheels and handles can be used to move benchtop analog multimeters around.

Asia Pacific is projected to dominate the multimeter market

During the projected period, the Asia Pacific is anticipated to account for a considerable market share due to its well-established electronic manufacturing and growing EV applications. Additionally, government initiatives aimed at promoting electric vehicle (EV) adoption and developing EV charging infrastructure have further propelled the demand for multimeters. For instance, in December 2022, under the second phase of the FAME-India Scheme, a budget allocation of Rs. 1000 Cr. was dedicated to the development of charging infrastructure by the Ministry of Heavy Industries. Also, the ministry further approved the establishment of 2,877 electric vehicle charging stations in 68 cities across 25 states/union territories.

Market Challenge:

  • Low battery and voltage limitation

An external power source or a battery is required to power the LCD. The display will be dark and difficult to read when the battery is low. Further, as the voltage limitation exists. The meter won’t function if the amount is increased past the safe level. Further, the multimeters cost more than the analog model and they should be used within the measurement range and category rating recommended by the manufacturer. Failure to do so will result in both equipment damage and physical injury which will pose a challenge for the multimeter market growth.

Major developments

  • In August 2021, HIOKI introduced the “Digital Multimeter DT4261” which features Bluetooth wireless communication through wireless adapter Z3210. The multimeter can be used for recording harmonic measurements of power conditioners for solar systems.
  • In September 2020, A device for the automobile industry was added to the DAkkS-calibrated multimeter generation by Gossen Metrawatt. An all-in-one tool for repairing, maintaining, and repairing electric devices, drives, and systems is the new METRAHIT IM E DRIVE. It combines every test and measurement procedure required.
