As consumers become more informed about the potential risks associated with unsafe products, they demand higher safety standards. This heightened awareness leads consumers to prefer products thoroughly tested for safety, compelling manufacturers to invest in comprehensive safety testing to meet market expectations. Increased awareness of health issues, such as allergies, chemical sensitivities, and other health risks associated with consumer products, has made safety testing more critical. Thus, increased awareness about product safety is driving the market's growth.

Moreover, the consumer electronics industry encompasses many products, such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, wearable devices, home appliances, and gaming consoles. Every consumer electronics category necessitates tailored safety testing to meet regulatory standards and ensure the products' safety, reliability, and performance. According to the National Investment Promotion & Facilitation Agency, India’s domestic electronics production has increased at a rate of 13% from $49 Bn in FY17 to $101 Bn in FY23. New technologies such as AI, AR/VR, 5G connectivity, and IoT introduce complexities that require specialized safety testing protocols. Thus, expansion of the consumer electronics Industry is driving the market's growth.

However, Comprehensive safety testing involves significant expenses related to equipment, facilities, skilled personnel, and compliance with stringent regulatory standards. These costs can be particularly burdensome for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with limited financial resources. As a result, some manufacturers may opt for minimal testing or delay testing processes, potentially compromising product safety. Limited budgets and resources can restrict their ability to conduct thorough testing, potentially hindering market entry or growth. Hence, the high cost of product safety testing is impeding the market's growth.
