API Production (and Consumption) is growing at a rapid rate - with 8,500 open APIs in 2012 to an estimated 30,000 by 2016. The prediction is for 250,000 total, open and closed APIs by 2016. As consumption of 3rd Party APIs continues to expand and play an increasingly central role in IT, testing them becomes an increasingly critical.
