The China testing, inspection & certification market size is anticipated to reach USD 61.8 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2020 to 2027.

The high standards of living in China and increased focus of customers on quality and safety of food products and consumer goods such as toys, personal care and beauty products, and electrical and electronic appliances are driving the growth of the China TIC market. Further, increase in outsourcing of testing, inspection, and certification services by prominent companies operating in the manufacturing, automotive, and consumer goods application areas is projected to boost the growth of the market in China.

Furthermore, the market is expected to grow at a faster pace in China owing to government investments in the transportation and energy sectors as well as the construction industry. The China government has introduced favorable policies for international players to establish their foothold in the country to achieve progressive liberalization. The domestic players capture a majority share of the market in several provinces of China. The government has encouraged foreign investments in the market by lifting the barriers for international testing, inspection, and certification providers to enter and operate in the Mainland marketplace.

Previously, most companies in China conducted their testing, inspection, and certification operations in-house. However, with the growing acceptance of the China Compulsory Certification (CCC), a greater emphasis is placed on the need for strict regulatory standards and certifications and this has led to an increase in outsourcing activities of testing, inspection, and certification in China due to cost benefits. This growing trend of outsourcing testing, inspection, and certification services is anticipated to further drive the market over the forecast period due to the increased accessibility of the domestic market for international players and the provision of cost-effective solutions by the testing, inspection, and certification service providers.
