Market outlook of the outsourced software testing market

Technavio’s research analyst predicts the global outsourced software testing market to grow at a CAGR of 11% during the forecast period. The market growth is spurred by crowdsourcing testing services, which is gaining popularity. Crowdsourcing involves engaging a mix of testers from different locations to work on a single project. The concept has gained much popularity in the last three years, and it offers real-time feedback of the product development process, provides insights on product quality and allows to detect problems in the testing life cycle. It is more scalable and flexible than outsourcing the whole testing services.

However, outsourcing of software testing services comes along with different complexities such as quickly changing business requirements and cultural and time zone differences among regions. Vendors often face difficulties in estimating the exact business requirement of clients and finding a solution that would not require much re-defining. Most clients keep cost reduction as the primary parameter to outsource software testing services. Sometimes, service providers misunderstand the company’s set requirement for cost savings, which leads to repeat work and additional costs.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the global outsourced software testing market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

The Americas led the global outsourced software testing market during 2015. The region is a fast adopter of third-platform technologies. Emerging nations of Latin America have realized the potential benefits of Big Data technology and are increasingly adopting on-demand software testing services.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

Vendors in this space are looking to innovate products and service offerings due to less service differentiation. With a large number of providers, application testing services are quickly gaining prominence. Vendors need to work on enhanced offerings with additional features to move up the value chain and win comprehensive outsourcing contracts. We expect this to be a critical differentiating factor for vendors, which will also intensify market competition.
