Continuous technological breakthroughs in various sectors are necessitating the testing, measurement, and monitoring of electronic devices, ultimately resulting in the growing utilization of AWGs. Multiple wireless technologies, including LTE, WCDMA, and GSM, use waveform generators to obtain high accuracy, minimal noise, and frequency stability in wireless communication networks. Additionally, the growth in IoT platforms is also compelling the manufacturers to use AWGs owing to various benefits such as flexibility, fidelity, and ease of use. The current, web-driven era is instigating the demand for high-speed coherent optical solutions.

A majority of the optical applications require phase modulation and high sample rate, baud rate, bandwidth, and resolution. As a result of this, the applications require multiple and synchronized AWGs for generating the desired coherent optical signals. This is further driving the product demand. Rapid advancements in technologies such as Multiple Input and Multiple Output (MIMO) is propelling the need for these generators, in order to generate high-accuracy signals. MIMO is primarily used in the wireless communication sector. It enables enhancements in data throughput without the need for installing multiple equipment and is thus, widely used in the communication sector. This is expected to create immense growth opportunities for market players over the next six years.
