Crowdsourced testing market has been significantly growing with rising demand for ensuring better customer experience globally.
The rising penetration of internet and smartphones have been strongly promoting the demand for various applications and software. Additionally, increasing digital transformation amongst enterprises of all sizes has strongly promoted the development of various software solutions. Since such solutions are deployed across different platforms, used in different localities, and must comply with various local regulations, rigorous testing is required. Testing is focused on several parameters, targeted at improving the customer experience. Any glitches in the same can seriously impact the providers brand image and revenue generation. Customer experience is thus one of the crucial parameters for a solution being developed. Since crowd testers are based across the globe, a solution can be easily cost-effectively tested across different geographies through crowdsourced testing. It also allows for testing a solution amongst people of different regions, leading to better feedback on how customers from different geographic locations perceive the solution. Such advantages and trends are strongly promoting the crowdsourced testing market globally. Several software quality assurance service providers engage crowd testers for ensuring quality of their solution.

IoT is expected to provide great growth opportunities.
Crowdsourced testing refers to delegating software testing duties through an internet platform to a group of expert quality assurance testers. It is an effective means of streamlining interactive software development and enhancing developers' internet and software solutions. This testing mode provides various advantages such as flexibility, real-world multiplatform testing, and testing across different geographic locations. As the internet of things (IoT) enabled devices increase, coupled with the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), the development of complex software solutions can be expected. Advanced solutions can be expected to require rigorous testing. The larger the number of testers, and more distributed across different geographies, the better the result. Thus crowdsourced testing market players ensure that the testers are spread worldwide while enabling their service. Such factors are expected to result in future growth opportunities for crowdsourced testing market across the globe.
Rising demand for mobile applications is a major factor accelerating the crowdsourced testing market growth.
The increasing penetration of smartphones has been driving the demand for applications. Government aids to increase such penetration, coupled with projects for creating a digital economy, have been further boosting demand for smartphones. It has also promoted the requirement for various applications for phones. Mobile phone applications are now being demanded for food delivery service, education, games, infotainment and many more. The number of applications on Google Playstore and Apple’s Appstore have grown manifold in the past few years. Such trends are expected to promote the crowdsourced testing market strongly.
