I had been asked whether I had thought of changing job before this and what held me back from a job switch over?

If the candidate accepts that they had been searching for a new job for a long time that would be a bad impression which would question their ability and performance to get to any new profile. It would be better to show the satisfaction with the previous employer. The candidates should avoid any harsh words for the current or previous employers and also avoid make them a reason for the job change.

The candidate can modestly inform the challenges in the current profile held them back. The support from the organization in the form of incentives and various awards and recognition didn't make them feel like switching over the job. It is the decreasing challenges in the current role which has made the job a bit monotonous which made them look out for a change. Or they may also quote that a much better profile with new challenges attracted towards this applied profile.
