The automation testing market size is expected to grow from USD 7.55 Billion in 2017 to USD 19.27 Billion by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 17.7% during the forecast period. The base year considered for the study is 2017 and the forecast period is from 2018 to 2023.

Objectives of the Study

The main objective of the report is to define, describe, and forecast the automation testing market size based on testing type (functional and non-functional), service, endpoint interface, organization size, vertical, and region. The report provides detailed information on the major factors (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges) influencing the market growth. The report attempts to forecast the market size with respect to the 5 main regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America. The report strategically profiles the key market players and comprehensively analyzes their core competencies. Moreover, it tracks and analyzes the competitive developments, such as joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, and new product developments, in the market.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the automation testing market size was initiated with the collection and analysis of data on the key vendor revenues through secondary sources, including the annual reports and press releases, investor presentations, conferences and associations, such as STAR Software Testing Conference; 11th Workshop on Model Based Testing (MBT 2017); National Software Testing Conference; and uTest, technology journals, certified publications, articles from recognized authors, directories, and databases. In addition, the vendor offerings were taken into consideration to determine the market segmentations. The bottom-up procedure was employed to arrive at the overall market size of the market from the revenue of the key players and their market shares. The automation testing market expenditure across all the regions, along with the geographical split in various verticals, was considered to arrive at the overall market size. Post-arrival at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments and were verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key people, such as Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), Vice Presidents (VPs), directors, and executives. The data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all the segments and subsegments. The breakdown of the profiles of the primary participants is depicted in the below figure:

MarketsandMarkets estimates the global market size to grow from USD 8.52 Billion in 2018 to USD 19.27 Billion by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 17.7% during the forecast period. The major factors that are expected to drive the growth of the market include the increasing adoption of mobile devices and technologies, increasing adoption of the DevOps methodology, and transforming testing by digital transformation. In addition, the automation testing increasing Returns on Investment (RoI) are expected to boost the market growth. The automation testing market is segmented based on testing type (functional and non-functional), service, endpoint interface, organization size, vertical, and region.

In the automation testing market, the service segment is expected to account for the largest market share. Automation testing services accomplish the growing need of QA as well as development teams with respect to advancement in technology and adoption of diverse categories of the software product. These services help increase the efficiency and effectiveness of applications, replicate testing across different platforms, minimize manual intervention, and reuse test scripts in various testing scenarios. Furthermore, automation testing services are inclusive of selection of suitable test tools, identification of test scenarios, test script maintenance, and generation of automated test reports. Services in the market are categorized into advisory and consulting services, support and maintenance services, planning and development services, documentation and training services, implementation services, managed services, and others. The other services consist of RoI analysis services, framework services, service virtualization, and assessment services.

The security testing under the non-functional testing type is expected to have the largest market share which is attributed to the fact that security testing can determine the quality of security measures, such as the policies, standards, guidelines, procedures, monitoring, and escalation processes, to protect the system. These tests would examine roles and responsibilities of system users. Security testing focuses on finding the possible loopholes and weaknesses in a digital ecosystem. This testing type would also examine the existing network topology, and identify security risks and vulnerabilities. Moreover, this type of testing checks whether a system under test meets the security parameters, such as authentication, authorization, confidentiality, and integrity. It also involves the security measures taken throughout an application code’s life cycle, setting up the network, and connecting devices to identify the security gaps and flaws to protect an organization’s Information Technology (IT) infrastructure from cybercriminals and malicious attacks.

The mobile subsegment is expected to account for the highest CAGR in the endpoint interface segment attributed to the fact that test automation is important for mobility testing as the same use case has to be run and validated on a growing number of devices and platforms. A reusable and scalable automation solution can help optimize the test effort. This significantly reduces the time required for testing and also the cost of testing. Automation testing providers offer different solutions and services that support various mobile endpoint interfaces, such as mobile application consultancy, Android, iOS, Windows, hybrid, cross-platform mobile app development, and support and maintenance services. Furthermore, automation testing for mobile interfaces helps reduce the length of testing type and overall test analysis cost, ensures compatibility of applications with independent nature of IT devices, and finally ensures the application quality by identifying possible performance and security glitches.

Automation Testing Market

Asia Pacific (APAC) is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period which is attributed to the fact that it is witnessing dynamic changes in the adoption of automation in testing activities across multiple verticals. Mobile development, quality and testing maturity, and agile methodology adoption are the major areas where companies in the region are increasing their investments. The mobile technology is said to witness a robust growth rate, as the adoption of smartphones is on a steep rise in the APAC region.

Data protection and privacy concerns are expected to be the major restraining factor for the growth of the automation testing market. However, the recent developments, such as new product launches and acquisitions, undertaken by the major market players are expected to boost the market growth.

The study measures and evaluates the major offerings and key strategies of the automation testing market vendors, including IBM (US), CA Technologies (US), Micro Focus (UK), Capgemini (France), Microsoft (US), Tricentis (Austria), SmartBear Software (US), Parasoft (US), Cigniti Technologies (India), Ranorex (Austria), and TestPlant (UK). These companies have been at the forefront in offering reliable automation testing to commercial clients across diverse locations.
