In the last couple of years, test automation has emerged as one of the most widely–adopted strategies across IT companies worldwide. It has proven quite helpful in software development and in optimizing testing processes. Since IT companies on a given day manage a huge volume of test data in a complex test environment, they require their software testing to be both effective and efficient. The increasing IT spending on quality assurance (QA) and software services, combined with the rapid proliferation of mobile- and cloud-based applications, will enable the global test automation market to surge at an exponential CAGR of 23.6% between 2016 and 2024.
High operating costs that make large investments necessary have presently emerged as major bottlenecks in the market. Nevertheless, growth of technologies such as big data analytics, cloud computing services, and data virtualizations will augment opportunities for the market in the forthcoming years.
