Market Overview

The cloud testing market is expected to register a CAGR of over 13% over the forecast period (2021 - 2026). The demand for cloud testing is increasing owing to the capabilities of cloud sourcing technology in software testing activities to perform quality assurance (QA) and to remove bugs.

  • The cloud testing market is witnessing positive growth due to DevOps and the cloud’s advent and rapid adoption and other efficient and automated services. The DevOps and cloud environments can enable highly scalable, diverse, and complex testing and configuration environments, enabling the vendors to push code through all kinds of tests with good efficiency without having to worry about the server configurations, deployment issues, or bottlenecks, helping the organization to focus on innovation and product improvement.
  • The rapid adoption of machine learning (ML) in various sectors is also fueling the demand for these testing solutions. ML is being used in the banking sector to model real-time transactions, and ML, along with AI technology, can help predict fraudulent transactions. Organizations that are ready to dive into this digital domain will experiment with high impacting scenarios developed by ML in the coming years. Testing solution providers should be able to understand the evolving trends in the testing domain and to stay competitive in the market, and they may constantly need to develop scenarios for testing that can validate all the possible outcomes.
  • Moreover, many large enterprises had quickly adopted the cloud to streamline operations, save money, and make them more competitive As a result, cloud testing has become necessary to validate the functional system and business requirements. In addition to the cloud experience, cloud testing engineers require the knowledge of different types of testing and tools.
  • With the rising spread of COVID-19 across the globe, the businesses suffered significantly. Some players operating in the market are coming out with a couple of initiatives to fight with the situation, which positively impacts the market.In June 2020, in France, the first Bluetooth-based European application called ‘StopCovid’ was launched and was downloaded more than 600 000 times on that day both from Apple Store and Google Play (Android), according to the French government. These application launches will further boost the cloud testing market significantly.

Scope of the Report

Cloud testing is a kind of software testing in which web applications use cloud computing environments to facilitate the tests. Cloud testing uses cloud infrastructure for software testing. This allows organizations to leverage the benefits of cloud computing model, which is scalable, service-based, and pay-as-you-go. The market scope includes cloud testing tool types and services adopted and used by the numerous end-user industries such as healthcare, BFSI, media and entertainment, among others considered in this study.

Key Market Trends

Websites and Applications Load Testing Boosting IT and Telecom End-user Industry

  • With the help of cloud testing, IT & telecom organizations can gain quick feedback on the mainframe, and supercharge innovation without having the risk of bottlenecks that disrupt operations, hinder customer experiences or impact enterprise’s revenues. The enterprises can improve quality, velocity, and efficiency on the mainframe while lowering the problems of the shortage of experienced developers.
  • At the end of 2018, Microsoft stated that Visual Studio 2019 is the last version with load testing features. A few months later they formally announced that Azure load testing is closing down on March 31st, 2020. Following the announcement, a large number of users, who were doing performance testing with Visual Studio or Azure DevOps, have been asking questions about many company’s load testing platform. K6.io has launched k6 OSS and k6 Cloud as a solution of the problem. The user can install k6 and start running performance tests in their machine for free. By default, k6 prints the result of the test to the console. The company also provide k6 Cloud load testing service as a complement to the open-source k6 tool, which will further improving their experience.
  • In October 2020, AWS has introduced distributed load testing v1.1. The Distributed Load Testing on AWS helps the user easily simulate thousands of users connecting to their application so that users can better understand the application performance under load. The solution launches and configures containers on AWS Fargate to generate a specified number of transactions per second without having to provision servers.
  • For the past two years, telecom companies have been onboarding network service providers to ensure the robust delivery of services. For instance, in March 2020, Ericsson was chosen by NTT DOCOMO as the AI-powered optimization solution supplier for its radio access network (RAN). Ericsson’s solution maximizes end-user experience in service provider’s networks while minimizing their total cost of ownership. The increasing adoption of such AI-enabled solutions for the development of the systems and networks boosts the growth of performance and load testing solutions in the telecom sector.
