API Testing Market: Introduction
IoT, AI and other market are the reason for the growth of API testing market. As the adoption of IoT related device has increased the demand for API testing has also increased. Application Programming Interface (API) testing is one of the important type of software testing (a part of integration testing), which is mainly used to determine the expectations for reliability, functionality, performance, etc.
In recent times automated testing has been the most trending technology for software testing, so testing of web applications with the API testing through automation will give effective and accurate results. Automated API testing as a part of web services test automation solution helps to test whether the application communicates and accesses functions correctly from the Web by effectively verifying the behavior of web services connected to them.
API Testing Market: Drivers and Challenges
Adoption of agile and devops practices for software development is one of the factor driving the market for API testing as the adoption of these modern techniques asks for modern testing methods like the automated API testing. The other driving point for the API testing market comes to be more complexities in the IT sector making it scares in terms of resources and time to invest on testing, but as the testing has been an essential part of the after development process so the companies are going for third party testing companies which has led to increase its market.
The major challenge faced by the API testing market is that in many regions are not aware about this API testing process and lack quality of their service leading to low efficiency of software and less growth of API testing market. The other challenge API testing market is facing are the data security concerns. The application or software passed for the testing sometimes leads to data theft and concept theft, which in turn leads to the loss of the software developers in terms of capital and time which is badly restricting the growth of API testing market.
