logo Growth Drivers

  • Rapidly rising global trade to ensure market growth

The global testing, inspection, and certification (TIC) market is projected to grow owing to the rising international trade across economies from one continent to another. Globalization is the result of growing trade relations between economies that intend to achieve mutual benefit. As the companies seek to expand their businesses and foray into other territories, they will be required to take assistance for TIC services since typically, these institutes are reliable in terms of ensuring the products meet international standards before they become available in the market for sale.

TIC service providers are equipped with expert professionals who work dedicatedly to understanding and staying updated with domestic and international regulatory measures since these rules and regulations are extremely complex. Furthermore, the growth in technology that has led to the development of products requiring certification and testing before being rolled out is another important factor for market growth.

logo Restraints

  • High cost of services to restrict market expansion

Since TIC services deal with complicated domestic and international trade laws and regulatory measures, their services are generally high in price since it entails the use of expert professionals. Small and medium-sized firms may find it difficult to afford these services on a regular basis. Furthermore, the pool of skilled professionals in this sector is relatively low compared to the demand for the services. This further leads to disparity in supply and demand causing a rise in prices for undertaking these services.

logo Opportunities

Currently, world leaders are focusing on the development graph of emerging economies like India, China, and others. The nations have true potential which when explored can lead to tremendous growth. TIC service providers are likely to target service-seekers in emerging countries since international players are rapidly making their entry into these economies. Furthermore, regional governments are providing necessary support to domestic players assisting them in international expansion projects which is another likely contributor to global market growth.

logo Challenges

Since TIC service providers are constantly looking to expand their services in international and new markets, it may get difficult for them to keep up with the ever-evolving international laws and regulations due to various cultural or technical differences.
