Human Factors Engineering And Usability Testing Services Market for medical devices is projected to reach USD 1 Billion by 2030, claims Roots Analysis

Human factors engineering and usability testing have now become an essential part of product design across almost all industries, offering developers the chance to optimize proprietary products in alignment to the preferences of consumers

Roots Analysis has announced the addition of “Human Factors Engineering and Usability Testing Services Market for Medical Devices, 2020-2030” report to its list of offerings.

Given the growing regulatory stringency, there are a number of medical devices recalls reported each year. Moreover, as such solutions are gradually becoming increasingly complex, it is imperative to identify potential risks / hazards, in order to guarantee safety to end users post product launch. This has led many device developers to resort to human factors engineering and usability testing. However, the aforementioned processes require specialized resources and expertise. Therefore, outsourcing this aspect of product design and development, has become common among industry stakeholders.
