Market Dynamics- Drivers

  1. Increasing data explosion is expected to drive growth of the global intelligent virtual assistant market during the forecast period

Production of data is increasing at a rampant pace, owing to switch from analog to digital technologies. According to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, around 20% of the global population is expected to come online using wireless devices in the near future. The usage of internet is expected to increase from level to high during the forecast period, owing to rising consumer awareness and increase in usage of smartphones. Furthermore, the introduction of the digital era has led to storage of more and more information in the digital medium and displaying them on internet. This is due to varied nature of internet where there are millions of websites with different information and each website differing from the other. This leads to a decrease in user’s interest in surfing the company’s website which in turn leads to potential loss of customers for the company. Therefore, these factors are expected to drive growth of the global intelligent virtual assistant market during the forecast period.

  1. Growing emphasis on improving alignment between customers is expected to propel the global intelligent virtual market growth over the forecast period
