Global ESD Test Meter Market: Introduction

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is the abrupt flow of electricity between two electrically charged objects caused due to electrical short circuit, or contact breakdown, or dielectric breakdown. Static electricity is developed by electrostatic induction, while electrostatic discharge is developed when differently charged objects are brought together or the dielectric between them breaks down. ESD test meters are used to measure the level of electrostatic discharge on an equipment, person, or surface. They are also employed to protect other equipment from damage. ESD mats are also used in electronic assembly and manufacturing plants to avoid transfer of electrostatic discharge. Various types of ESD test meters are available in the market. These include surface resistivity meter, static charge meter, wrist strap tester, footwear tester, and workstation monitors. ESD test meter is used in electronic assembly and manufacturing, pharmaceutical plants, computer operation, and cleanroom operation applications.

Global ESD Test Meter Market: Dynamics

Increase in Usage of ESD Test Meter in Consumer Electronics

The global ESD test meter market is primarily driven by the growth in consumer electronics, aerospace, health care, and industrial applications. Demand for ESD test meters is anticipated to rise significantly in the consumer electronics industry due to the increase in usage of these meters in electronic assembly and manufacturing. In consumer electronics, multiple ESD test meters and equipment are used to protect the flow of ESD from one device to another, as it may cause damage to another device. Surface resistivity meter, static charge meter, wrist strap tester, and workstation monitor are used in electronic assembly and manufacturing. The workstation monitor continuously monitors wrist strap to detect any fault or loss of continuity due to broken cords or improper contact between monitor and operator. In such conditions, the workstation immediately alerts the operator to prevent the device from damage. Additionally, ESD test meters are portable, lightweight, and available at affordable cost. This plays vital role in protecting the assembly line from expensive damage. Thus, ESD test meters are increasingly used in the consumer electronics industry.
