The worldwide market for computer software and systems testing services is projected to reach 56 billion dollars by 2013 despite taking a hit from the global economic crisis.

More companies are outsourcing testing services, with India establishing itself as the favourite provider, the report by industry consulting firm Ovum said.

“Both the outsourced and in-house testing services markets will grow over the next four years but not at the heady rates seen over the last four years,” it said.

“Despite this slowing, testing services will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 9.5 percent from 2008 to 2013, faster than most other (information technology) services.”
