Software Testing Services
The Software Testing Services industry has grown over the five years to 2016. Outsourced testing services have experienced a surge in demand; nonetheless, rising business investment in software, increased adoption of cloud-based testing and growing reliance on outsourced IT services in general has sustained demand for onshore software testing services. The industry will experience moderate growth over the next five years. Favorable movements in business performance and continued expansion of service offerings will drive demand for testing services. In addition, the practice of outsourcing testing services will continue to grow in popularity, as more software developers see the value in hiring a dedicated firm to handle testing. However, increased reliance on offshored or nearshored testing services will ultimately limit the growth of the domestic industry.
This industry provides software testing services for clients, such as performance testing, stability testing, usability testing and security testing. This industry does not sell its own software, but it may use internally developed software to complete its testing tasks.
