Global testing, inspection and certification (TIC) Services market to witness robust growth from transportation sector, certifications in healthcare to provide additional boost

Posted on

Growing emphasis on consumer satisfaction and safety has proliferated the testing, inspection, and certification (TIC) services market as governments worldwide have implemented stringent quality regulations on almost every industry vertical. Whether it is construction, automobile, energy, healthcare or other segments, continuous advancement in products and components have necessitated upgraded testing and certification requirements. Improvements in management, product quality, manufacturing processes, supply chains and service value have become imperative for the growth of any business, imposing a need for the TIC services market. Existence of recognized certifications such as ISO:9001 or ISO/TS 16949 make it easier for customers to search for companies that provide excellent product quality, better customer service and new, innovative solutions. The global TIC services market valuation in 2017 stood at over USD 150 billion, driven by the obligation of companies towards meeting specific product requirements and to comply with international quality standards.

Besides helping to control the quality, effective testing and inspection processes aid in minimizing rejections, reduce manufacturing costs and identify reasons for a defective output. The transportation segment, in general, constitutes a major part of the global manufacturing industry where thousands of components or auto parts go through daily quality checks. As governments and international agencies are constantly raising the weight, material and other standards of automobile components to enhance the safety and efficiency of vehicles, the TIC services industry is subsequently gaining massive popularity. OEMs as well as small auto component vendors are striving to achieve high level of quality and get certified, to get documented and provide validity to their proficiencies and expertise. Frequent inspection and evaluation of manufacturing processes by in-house or third party services to maintain a grip on the quality level will continually boost the TIC services market.

As per estimates, the EU alone produced over 17 million passenger cars and 2.6 million commercial vehicles in 2017. With strict regulations in place to enhance the fuel efficiency of future vehicles and reduce carbon emissions, the TIC services market will experience tremendous growth from testing and inspection of advanced auto components and manufacturing processes. New processes need to be sufficiently tested before implementation and vigorously inspected for any faults or defects to ensure product uniformity. Globally, an emerging product line in the automotive sector is connected and self-driving cars, which presents a challenging task for the TIC services industry. Chipmakers and testing companies are helping to develop these products by adhering to ideal temperature, voltage, electromagnetic interference and several other standards put down for an efficient autonomous system. Automotive standards like ISO 26262 have been introduced related to the safety of electrical and electronic systems within vehicles, warranting adequate testing and inspection to be done on advanced automotive chips.

The TIC services industry is rapidly witnessing demand from the healthcare and life sciences segment, with test and inspection reports of pharmaceutical equipment being critical in assessing whether the international standards are met. TIC companies are trying their best to evolve with technological developments and remain up-to-date with new regulations pertaining to safety and quality. Products, apparatus and supply chains are subject to quality testing activities regularly, as pharmaceutical companies are responsible for providing vital therapeutic solutions. Even other parties involved in the supply chain must go through intense inspection by assigned representatives to be eligible to acquire critical certifications. Citing an instance that signifies the importance of the TIC services market, Swiss WorldCargo recently received IATA’s Center for Independent Validators (CEIV) Pharma certification, which encompasses not only the airline but also the entire organization.

To elaborate, a CEIV Pharma certification indicates that the lifesaving pharmaceutical products are being handled in compliance with the best global standards of safety, security and efficiency by the certified party. With this certification, Swiss WorldCargo has attained a milestone which only a small number of airlines have been able to earn, recognizing them as globally consistent in exhibiting high quality standards while handling pharmaceutical products. Further, U.S. based Nu-Med Plus Inc. has established a quality management program and trained its employees regarding quality standards in an effort to gain ISO 13485 certification. The certification is essential for the company before it files for the approval of its new nitric oxide delivery devices with the FDA and demonstrates the significance of the TIC services market in forming the image of a top-quality healthcare product or service provider.

Overall, the TIC services industry will undergo remarkable transformation due to incessant developments in the life sciences field, resulting from the existence of rigorous certification eligibilities in healthcare and mandates that demand high quality control. Slated to record a 6% CAGR from 2018 to 2024, the TIC services market is highly dispersed with key players like Intertek, SGS SA, Bureau Veritas, DEKRA, TUV SUD, Apave and Eurofins being the major participants.
