The global testing and commissioning market size was US$ 187 Billion in 2018. Testing and commissioning, or testing, inspection & certification (TIC), refer to a set of procedures, which are conducted to ensure that the services, infrastructure and products meet with the mandated regulations and standards in terms of quality and safety. These processes include on-site or laboratory testing, documentary checks, data consistency verification, management process audits, and inspections across the entire supply chain. Testing and commission can be carried out on behalf of either private or public authorities, or the purchaser or end user, independently of stakeholders, or at the request of the manufacturer. These procedures are required throughout the supply chain and are valid across all industries. In recent years, the globalization of trade has led to the emergence of complex supply chains impacting the product quality, which has created an increased requirement for improved testing and commissioning processes.
Over the past few years, integrated sensors, predictive maintenance and digital inspection have replaced physical or manual procedures. This has enabled market players to offer premium testing and commissioning services to end users with the adoption of digital processing improvements and Big Data to gather information from different sources. Besides, the implementation of new and revised regulations has led to a significant shift from a voluntary-based risk management approach to mandatory testing services. Moreover, the industry has been witnessing growth in developing economies, like China, on account of a rise in the number of acquisitions and mergers, coupled with deals including new tax, cultural and legislative regimes. For instance, in 2019, the France-based testing, inspection and certification services provider, Bureau Veritas acquired the China-based food testing and certification firm, Shenzhen Total-Test Technology. Attributing to these trends, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a value of US$ 247 Billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of 4.8% during 2019-2024.
