Chatbot Market Size to be Worth Around USD 4.9 Billion by 2032

Jan 27, 2023

Key Players IBM Corporation, Microsoft, AWS, Oracle, Acuvate, Google, Artificial Solutions, Botsify Inc, Creative Virtual Ltd., Aivo, eGain Corporation, Inbenta Technologies Inc., Next IT Corp., Nuance Communications, Inc. and Others Market Dynamics of the global chatbot market Driver: Growing E-commerce sector E-commerce chatbots are AI systems that online merchants utilize to communicate with clients at every stage of the buying process. Customers receive individualized purchasing experiences via chatbots based on their previous interactions, purchases, website browsing patterns, age, and gender. It provides prompt notifications and proactive information to inform customers about freshly released goods, deals, and price adjustments to boost e-commerce enterprises' profits. The e-commerce industry requires 24-hour customer service, which is only sometimes feasible with human assistance. This is driving the adoption of chatbots in the e-commerce sector, enabling two-way communication and a real-time connection with users, allowing for a better shopping experience at any time and location. Increased use of smartphones and social media websites with chatbots provides for greater customer engagement. This results in a more seamless payment experience, more efficient communication, and a shorter sales cycle. Chatbots are used in the e-commerce and retail sectors to deliver automated emails and instant customer responses. This increases the customer base and sales, strengthening the customer engagement solutions market. Restraint: Dearth of accuracy in users' voice authentication  Conversational AI platforms can also be built using chatbots. They can recognize human sentiments and emotions. On the other hand, misinterpreting human feelings and emotions can significantly and adversely affect businesses. Identifying and responding to the emotion in the user's voice can be challenging. On the other hand, it's easy to imagine chatbots imitating real people, for instance, to automate cybercrimes like scamming and phishing. Furthermore, chatbots that can simulate a real human conversation will differ from the far artificial general intelligence (AGI) that is as intelligent as a human. Using chatbots in the wild, regardless of how human-like they are, will still necessitate human supervision to ensure they do not "go rogue." Opportunity: Rising adoption of advanced chatbots by market players  The chatbot industry is increasing rapidly. This expansion is attributed to the increased use of these bots to handle queries and provide customer support. As per, Inc, an American cloud-based software company, more than 69% of consumers use chatbots to speed up communication. Moreover, strategic collaboration, product innovation, and business expansions by tech behemoths are expected to boost the chatbot market globally. For instance, in November 2020, Microsoft collaborated with Novo Nordisk, a global healthcare company focusing on diabetes management, to create an AI Chinese-speaking chatbot for patients diagnosed with diabetes. In addition, Amazon Web Services, Inc. commercialized AWS Chatbot for all customers in April 2020. AWS Chatbot is an interactive agent that can receive critical alerts, execute commands to return diagnostic data, run AWS Lambda functions, and create AWS support cases. Such significant developments may increase demand for chatbot services in the global market. COVID-19 Impact on the global chatbot market During COVID-19, several companies operating in the chatbot market, such as Google and IBM, have taken strategic steps to help society. For instance, in June 2020, the Andhra Pradesh National Health Mission announced that they had integrated with IBM Watson, a virtual agent, to help people quickly get answers to their COVID-19 queries. The innovative chatbot is designed to understand and respond to common pandemic questions in different languages, such as Telugu, Hindi, and English. Furthermore, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced in April 2020 that they had successfully launched Facebook Messenger, their version of the WHO health alert platform, to provide accurate and instant information about COVID-19.
