The earth tester is used for measuring earth resistance or ground electrode resistance and soil resistivity. The power system equipment are connected to the earth via earth electrode. Since, the resistance of earth is very low if any fault current arises it passes to the earth through earth electrode or tester. Further, it protect the system and personnel from damage due to high electric current. In this respect, it is essential to determine the resistance of earth, where the earthen pit can be dug for inserting earth electrode. In broader context, it is necessary to ensure the adequate low resistance of ground connection for performance and protection of electrical system. In addition to that it is very important to check the earth resistance periodically to meet design specifications. The earth measurements can be executed with various poles including 2, 3, or 4 pole testing. Furthermore, on site testing is possible without removal of the utility connection with use of clamp on type of earth tester. It can automatically check the condition and connection spikes as well as the level of ground noise, further indicate the status on display. Furthermore, some manufacturer provide earth testers with measurement fault or disturbance indicator LEDs. It is widely applicable in various field including electric power, telecommunications, meteorology, oil field, architecture and industrial electrical equipment, and others.  

The earth tester market is primarily driven by the increased deliveries of earth tester applications in various fields such as industrial electrical equipment, oil & gas, and industrial applications during forecast period. The rapid urbanization and increasing electricity requirement owes to increase in demand of earth tester, further expected to contribute to growth of the global earth tester market during forecast period. However, availability of limited skilled workforce expected hinder the growth of global earth tester market during forecast period.

The global earth tester market has been segmented based on device type, output type, end-use industry, and region. Based on device type, the earth tester market can be classified into bench top, clamp on, and field. Based on output type, the earth tester market can be classified into digital output and analog output. Based on end-use industry, the market can be segmented into electric power, electronics & telecommunications, meteorology, oil & gas, construction & architecture, industrial electrical equipment and others. In terms of region, the global earth tester market can be segregated into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. North America and Europe is anticipated to hold a significant share of the global earth tester market due to the presence of leading earth tester manufacturers in this region.
