Gamification is the process of adding game-like mechanics in different environments such as company websites, businesses, workplaces, online communities, and others. The main objective of the gamification software is to engage employees, customers, players, and partners thereby encourage them to work towards their goals. This software helps to create community entertainment, interaction, and a team-building environment. This software helps organizations to create interactive and task-based activities in order to encourage employees to achieve their target goals. The gaming-based solution is also helpful in providing training to the employees and for the recruitment process. Moreover, through this solution, customers can get information about the product and brand, which helps the companies to maintain sustainable relationship with customers. For instance, Service Corporation International, a U.S.-based company that provides funeral goods and services, registered an 89% boost in its closing deal after adopting gamification software. These factors are expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period.
The global gamification market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period (2020–2027), owing to the adoption of augmented reality, virtual reality, and mixed reality technologies. Companies are also investing in immersive technologies such as AR, VR and MR. Companies are also focusing on providing gaming solutions that leverage these advanced technologies. For instance, major players in the retail industry such as Amazon.com Inc. and Walmart are leveraging AR and VR technologies to revolutionize the online shopping experience. These companies are using immersive technologies to showcase their products by using virtual reality showrooms. Walmart is using augment reality gamification technologies for promoting its products. For instance, in May 2017, Walmart announced a partnership with Strivr Labs Inc. to provide training to its employees using virtual reality technology. This virtual training is provided to all employees across 200 centers in the U.S. to teach them about valuable customer service. Retailers are also using this technology for customer engagement inside and outside the retailer stores. Furthermore, in September 2018, Tyson Foods, Inc. announced a collaboration with Strivr Labs, Inc. to provide safety and hazard awareness training to the employees by using VR technology. The company is using VR technology in its training sessions. This training has reduced injuries and illness by 20% in 2017 as compared to the previous training. Thus, immersive technology along with gamification has revolutionized employee training to a large extent.
Moreover, multiple industries are using immersive technologies such as AR, VR, and MR to provide safety training, e-learning, performance management, and others. For instance, in April 2019, Exxon Mobil Corporation, a U.S.-based oil & gas multinational company, leveraged virtual reality technology to provide safety training to employees. Furthermore, complexity in designing gamification software is expected to hamper the gamification market growth. It was observed that designers failed in developing unique and advanced designs to meet organization needs. This might slower the adoption of these solutions in the market. Thus, accurate constructed design with proper implementation is mandatory to achieve desirable outcomes. These factors are expected to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
