With a growing number of smartphone users each year, it is clear that smartphones are here to stay for years to come. Being the primary means of personal as well as business communication, smartphones are constantly undergoing innovation. Smartphone applications have also become an integral part of consumers’ lives and several apps are now even being incorporated into wearables, smart home appliances, and smart automobiles. As smartphone applications are designed to increasingly deliver complex functionality on varied platforms, unique challenges appear while testing them.
While the mobile application testing solution market is currently evaluated at over $ 2 Bn, it is likely to surpass a value of $ 13 Bn by the end of 2026. Over the decade, Future Market Insights expects staggering growth for the global mobile testing solution market. According to Future Market Insights, massive growth of the m-commerce sector is predominantly driving the demand for quality mobile application solutions. Soaring need for immediate regression testing and a growing trend of BYOD especially in the corporate sector are also vigorously boosting the innovation and sales of mobile app testing solutions. Thriving enterprise application development will also play a pivotal role in emergence of mobile app testing solutions in global market.
Consumers are increasingly downloading apps on their smart devices and if the performance is not up to the mark, they tend to choose an alternative app for the same requirement. Growing consumer intolerance for poor app functionality, defects, below-standard user experience, and below-par app performance has resulted in making testing of mobile applications a critically important step in app development process. This compels businesses to develop perfect mobile apps, maintain a constant upgrade, and conduct a strict quality check. While these factors are favoring the market for mobile app testing solutions, businesses often face a challenge due to inadequate and inefficient app testing tools.
Future Market Insights projects increase in app testing solutions over the next few years, pushing the total global sales beyond $ 13 Bn by the end of 2026. Compared to tablet, smartphone app testing solutions will be higher in demand, whereas the Android will witness the highest growth than any other platform, including iOS. As per Future Market Insights’ research, Android platform segment will possibly expand at a CAGR of over 20% by 2026 and iOS platform segment will closely follow it with over 19% CAGR. As far as testing type is considered, interactive testing will gain higher traction than automated testing.
