Key Findings & Highlights
NelsonHall's market analysis of the crowdtesting services consists of 69 pages. It provides an in-depth understanding of the dynamics at play in the crowdtesting.

The current global crowdtesting services market size stands at ~$200m. It is a niche market that still is in its early phase of development, benefiting from the client’s need for fast execution for their agile projects and inhibited by IP concerns.

NelsonHall expects that crowdtesting spending will grow by 15% annually, until 2023 and reach ~$400m. NelsonHall, therefore, assumes a linear adoption growth during the period. NelsonHall believes that crowdtesting still has long-term growth potential.
Applause, Wipro/Topcoder, and Global App Testing are the most significant vendors.

While IT services with large testing service presence could potentially enter the crowdtesting market, NelsonHall is not expecting major competition from them, except for Wipro/Topcoder. The market is niche to large IT service vendors and already has barriers to entry in the form of automation.

North America is the largest and the fastest-growing spender of crowdtesting services, for two reasons: its traditional appetite for new technologies and the high percentage of retail, CPG, and start-ups.
EMEA is the second largest market for crowdtesting services.
Spending growth will remain high in North America with Applause and Rainforest QA educating clients about the benefits of crowdtesting.
EMEA will be driven by the U.K. and Northern Europe.
India and China will drive spending in Asia.
