“Pre-shipment inspection market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.04% between 2018 and 2023”
The pre-shipment inspection market is estimated to grow from USD 11.60 billion in 2018 to USD 14.83 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.04% between 2018 and 2023. Some of the drivers for this market are the growing consumer spending and ongoing rapid urbanization in emerging markets, increasing incidents of product recalls across the world, and surging counterfeiting and piracy activities. The main restraint for this market growth is that pre-shipment inspection becomes counterproductive for import countries and their traders.
“In-house sourcing type accounted for a larger share of the pre-shipment inspection market in 2017”
Earlier, manufacturers and organizations had to adhere to limited standards and regulations; hence, it was possible for companies to build their in-house inspection capabilities. In recent years, standards pertaining to human/user safety and environmental safety have increased and become mandatory for certain category of products. However, this trend is shifting to the increase in outsourcing pre-shipment inspection services to specialized third-party service providers as they drastically reduce the operational expenditure for manufacturers.
“Pre-shipment inspection market for agriculture and food application to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period”
