The mobile devices ecosystem comprises diverse hardware, software, and complex network configurations. Further, the constant influx of new devices, browsers, and the release of operating system versions make the task tedious and present unique challenges from a quality assurance strategy and testing perspective. The availability of different types and generations of mobile devices in the market has played a critical role in driving the demand, as the applications are expected to function and perform at the optimum level.

  • The competition between the application developers in the respective app stores influences the market. The direct and transparent feedback of reviews on the app store has resulted in increased demand for outstanding mobile application quality and enhanced user experience.
  • Few Players in the market are focusing on strategic collaborations to increase their visibility and expansion. For Instance, In September 2022, pCloudy announced a strategic partnership with VALTES Co., Ltd, a significant software testing business in Japan, to expand its horizons in Japan. This collaboration will help pCloudy expand its influence in Japan and other East Asian countries. pCloudy and AnyTest will collaborate to make app testing easier with a cloud-based app testing platform.
  • Reduced time-to-market, lower budgets, time available for quality assurance, and careful user experience design are significant factors considered for MAT services. The market for mobile application quality and user experience measurement tools has grown tremendously in the past decade around the mobile app store ecosystems.
  • Following the lean and agile development approach, developers continuously produce new features and ready-to-ship software increments. Enterprises have been trying to cater to the significant business opportunity that mobile devices have created.
