Automotive Testing, Inspection, Certification (TIC) Market by Service Type, Sourcing Type, Application, and Geography, Periodic Technical Inspection Market - Global Forecast to 2024 -

DUBLIN--()--The "Automotive TIC Market by Service Type (Testing, Inspection, Certification), Sourcing Type, Application (Vehicle Inspection, Electrical Systems, & Components), and Geography; Periodic Technical Inspection Market, by Region - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to's offering.

The automotive TIC market is expected to grow from USD 16.9 billion in 2019 to USD 22.1 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 5.5%

The growth of this market can be attributed to the increasing automobile production in emerging economies, growing inclination toward outsourcing TIC services, rising focus of governments to impose strict regulatory standards on the automotive industry, surging adoption of automotive electronics to maintain passenger and vehicle safety, augmenting awareness among consumers regarding product quality and safety, and increasing instances of vehicle recalls due to component failures. However, varying regulations/standards across various regions is the factor that restrains the market growth.

Certification services to register highest CAGR in automotive TIC market, by service type, during the forecast period

In the TIC ecosystem, certification services validate the test and inspection results against a range of pre-specified standards set by governments, international standardization institutions, or clients. In the current scenario, certification services are widely used by manufacturers to demonstrate if their products adhere to the government/regulatory mandates, as well as to improve the marketability of their offerings.

Certification services re crucial for manufacturers to ensure the compliance of their products with regulatory standards, thereby improving the marketability of products/services. Certifications ensure that manufacturers have followed safety, quality, and environmental standards and norms during the production process.

A few of the major certifications in the automotive industry are ISO/TS 16949, ISO 9001, AS9100C, ISO 20000, ISO 27001, EU Data Protection Directive, TL 9000, ESD S20.20, OHSAS 18001, ANSI/AIHA Z10, ISO 50001, Superior Energy Performance (SEP), ISO 14001, and ISO 14064.

In-house services to hold a larger size of automotive TIC market, by sourcing type, during the forecast period

In automotive applications, in-house testing of electronic control units (ECUs) and other core components is done by automakers at their manufacturing facilities. They are collaborating with public bodies and organizations including customs, competition authorities, and industrial health and safety authorities for conducting activities related to quality control and assurance.

Conducting in-house TIC services allow manufacturers to exert higher levels of control by keeping services and personnel under direct control; therefore, in-house services are likely to capture a larger share of the automotive TIC market. In-house services not only lower the risks associated with poor vehicle maintenance, including equipment failure and crashes but also enable manufacturers to identify the problems instantaneously.

Vehicle inspection services to hold the largest size of automotive TIC market, by application, during the forecast period

Vehicle inspection is the process of inspecting vehicles to ensure that they conform to safety and emission regulations mandated by national or subnational governments. Vehicles have to undergo a safety inspection before registration. Vehicle inspection services are performed for new, as well as used/resale vehicles. Vehicle inspection services for new vehicles include a comprehensive inspection of the overall vehicle, which includes inspection of electrical systems and components; electric vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles, and battery systems; telematics; and others.

Automotive TIC market in APAC is expected to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region in terms of the automotive TIC market. In this study, APAC represents India, China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, and Rest of APAC (RoAPAC). This region has become a global focal point for investors focusing on making huge investments or seeking business expansion opportunities.
