Automation testing is a testing process of software that executes the test cases with the help of certain testing tools. Manual testing is performed by humans sitting in front of the computers with each and every step manually. However, the automation testing can also fetch the data in the System Under Test (SUT) and analyze & process for the standard result in the form of test reports. The process of automation decreases the test cases in comparison to manual testing, along with eliminating human errors.
The prominence of automation testing administrations is expanding among the companies due to the lesser turnaround time and better credibility of testing administrations in programming. The testing frameworks and tools automate database correction, registration, and login forms to save money. This extends their business avenues. Also, the market members are getting inclined toward the combining of inventive testing methods like Agile and DevOps. The emergence of cloud technology, for example, software development and OS virtualization is additionally expected to bolster demand in the global automation testing market., for example DevOps in software development.
The global automation testing market is classified into testing types, endpoint interface, services, and region. In terms of testing type, the global market is divided into dynamic testing (non-functional and functional) and static. On the basis of services, the market is segregated into planning & development, consulting & advisory, training & documentation, maintenance & support, and managed. As per end-user, the global automation testing market is segmented into BFSI, Telecom & IT, automotive, defense & aerospace, healthcare & life sciences, retail, energy & utilities, manufacturing, media & entertainment, logistics & transportation, and others. Based on the endpoint interface, the market is sub-categorized into embedded software, web, desktop, and mobile.
