Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC) Market

Products and services today require testing, inspection and certification (TIC) stamps not only to ensure safety and quality but also to boost their marketability. Having such certifications help develop trust among consumers. Testing, inspection and certification services are provided by both state-owned and privately owned companies. Almost all verticals having some commercial interests have TIC approval or certification bodies that are responsible for quality assessment. Rapid urbanization and industrialization has led to a greater requirement for TIC services. The latest study conducted by Market Research Future (MRFR) reveals that the global market for testing, inspection and certification (TIC) is set to grow at a healthy pace over the next couple of years. The new quality standards that are being set by authorities is reflecting favorably on the global TIC market. TIC can be applied to any company, and its products or services.

Acceleration in research and development coupled with continuous innovation in the field of science has triggered a sense of urgency for TIC affiliations among companies who operate in large-scale sectors (healthcare, consumer goods, retail, white goods, automotive, etc.) However, players who are operating in the global TIC market continue to struggle to overcome the issue of lack of quality standard parity from region to region. Increased import and export activities worldwide characterizes the tremendous uptake in global trade. As a result, the importance of testing, inspection and certification has increased. The disparity in quality standard norms between advanced countries and developing countries remains a major hurdle. Poor efficiency of labor force and lack of robust safety and quality control regulations in developing countries create severe implications for TIC service providers.
