This report analyzes the emerging trends for commercially available testing tools, including static analysis, dynamic, and model-based tools. It also covers the previously mentioned tool types used for general software quality testing and defect detection as well as those used for application security testing and vulnerability management.
The global automated test and verification tools (ATVT) market will grow to $X,XXX.XM in 2016 from $X,XXX.XM in 2013, a CAGR of X.X%. The need for more automated software testing remains acute. Embedded engineers and enterprise developers face pressing time-to-market and software content creation demands. Factors driving ATVT revenue growth include the spread of process-standard requirements, the increasing percentage of system value due to software, and the adoption of new development strategies, technologies, and programming languages.

Global Automated Test & Verification Tools Forecast by Market (US $M)
VDC forecasts that the global automated test and verification tools (ATVT) market will grow to $X,XXX.XM in 2016 from $X,XXX.XM in 2013, a CAGR of X.X%. Companies are committing more resources to software development and becoming more reliant on the domain for value delivery and differentiation. We expect awareness of the potential impact of software issues will rise in parallel with the growth of system value due to software, helping drive ATVT revenue gains in the embedded and enterprise/IT markets.
Developers are learning of complimentary roles that static, dynamic, and model or unit-based tests can play. As a result, test tool revenue will grow for all product categories - expansion of one tool type will not cannibalize other categories. Engineering organizations will implement comprehensive testing regimens that incorporate multiple test tool types to ensure full coverage. The discovery of more large corporate data breaches or software-related product failures, especially in safety-critical industries, may push revenue growth ahead of current projections.
Sales of ATVT solutions into the embedded market are fairly evenly distributed between static analysis tools, which account for XX.X% of ATVT revenues in the sector, and dynamic & model- based test tools (XX.X%). ATVT sales into the embedded market will be driven by software in embedded devices growing in volume and complexity, an increasing need to develop to process standards, adoption of more collaborative development methodologies, and the shift to rely more on software for overall system value. The embedded ATVT market is expected to reach $XXX.XM in 2016, up from $XXX.XM in 2013 - a CAGR of XX.X%.
In the enterprise test tool market, ATVT revenues are much more heavily reliant on dynamic and model-based test tools. Static analysis accounts for only X.X% of ATVT revenues in 2013 but is expected to rise sharply, driven by growing concern over the security impact of software bugs or defects and a growing need to develop software code in accordance with process or reporting mandates. Enterprise static analysis revenues will expand at a CAGR of XX.X%, reaching $XX.XM in 2016 when they will account for X.X% of enterprise/IT ATVT sales. Dynamic and unit testing tools use in the enterprise market is driven by development methodology choices such as Agile or Test-Driven Development. Process standard compliance is also a primary driver of dynamic test tool use in the enterprise market, especially in financial and medical industries.
Software development market pressures, technology advances, and growing interest in the Internet of Things (IoT) are contributing to increased embedded device diversity and complexity. The expected growth in software volume exceeds both our estimate of a 6.9% increase in the embedded developer population through 2016 and OEMs' abilities to increase internal efficiencies organically. A greater reliance on third-party software code and increased use of object-oriented programming languages will help manage these new software creation demands. Java, C++, and C# use is on the rise, while Assembly and C usage is waning.
Developers in safety-critical applications are increasingly considering multicore systems for their designs in order to meet needs for increased processing power with reduced energy consumption. With this architecture use on the rise, there is a growing need to check for concurrency issues to avoid performance impacts and incorrect application behaviors. These issues have been difficult to discover with existing tool options. However, recent product updates from some leading tool providers, including Coverity and GrammaTech, include updates to help check for concurrency issues in C# and Java.
While the need for smarter devices is bolstering use of multicore and multiprocessor designs, demand is also rapidly increasing for scaled-down, connected systems that are used in the IoT or for machine-to-machine communications. These are resource-constrained platforms, often using 8- or 16-bit microcontrollers, and have limited overhead space for traditional verification tools. LDRA and Vector Software are among the vendors with product updates offering reduced footprint test tool versions over the past year designed specifically for these types of applications.
