Global Chatbot Market: Overview 

A chatbot is a service, which is programmed by a computer, to stimulate conversation with human users via a chat interface, which typically operates over the internet. Chatbots are being increasingly used in applications such as e-commerce customer service, internet gaming, and call centers. They are available across platforms such as mobile, stand-alone, and internet. Owing to their high costs, they are primarily used across large enterprises. The future of the global chatbot market looks bright with the growing investments in the training and designing of chatbots. 

According to a report by Transparency Market Research, the market had a valuation of US$113.0 mn in 2015 and is poised to rise to US$994.5 mn by 2024, progressing at a remarkable CAGR of 27.8% between 2016 and 2024. The report serves as a reliable source of trends, statistics, and other information regarding the chatbot market at both global and regional levels. 

Global Chatbot Market: Drivers and Restraints 

With the rapid advancements in the artificial intelligence, the global chatbot market is like to rake in a healthy share of the pie. Advancements in the technology have enabled chatbots to have a more convenient interface and thus, create a better-knit network for an organization. The growing trend of digitalization and greater emphasis on the accessibility to messaging-as-OS platform are stoking the growth of the global market. Moreover, the expanding scope of applications found for chatbots is augmenting the growth of the market. 

On the flip side, the key hosting issues such as chatbot integration, monitoring, management, and security are impeding the widespread adoption of chatbots. Furthermore, the brisk pace at which capabilities are growing does not match with the growth in the areas where they can be applied, which in turn is hampering the growth of the market. Nevertheless, the rising penetration of chatbot-as-a-service and continuous advancements in the cloud technology are likely to provide a significant push to the global chatbot market in the forthcoming years.
