An email delivery services provider is a platform that enables sending of bulk emails to clients and contacts of end-user industries. Businesses, especially e-commerce, send transactional or marketing emails to their customers as a way to communicate, or in order to promote or advertise their products and services. It is necessary to utilize email delivery services platforms that ensure that emails are delivered to the inbox of the intended recipients. Email delivery services ensure that the emails are delivered to the recipient’s inbox instead of being filtered or being marked as spam by internet service providers (ISPs). Emails may be used in order to engage with prospective consumers and expand the consumer base.

Mergers & acquisitions (M&A) is a major driver of consolidation in the market. Major players in the market such as Salesforce.com, Inc., Oracle Corporation, and IBM Corporation are pushing to combine marketing and e-commerce on a single platform. In 2018, Insight Venture Management, LLC, acquired Emma, Inc., after which Emma, Inc. and email marketing automation service provider Delivra, Inc. formally merged to become part of Campaign Monitor Pty Ltd.

Current trends indicate a decline in the market in terms of adoption and usage of internally developed (in-house), or custom email platforms. Competitive options that reduce the hassle of upkeep seems to be driving end-users to move to commercial email delivery service providers (ESPs).

A restraint of the global email delivery services market is the necessary compliance with the general data protection regulation (GDPR) for operations within the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA).

An opportunity for the email delivery services market is the advancement of support for dynamic and interactive emails through Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) technology.

Furthermore, the ever-growing volume of spam emails and threats such as phishing attacks, ransomware, and impersonation attacks being propagated through email is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for email delivery service providers to utilize machine learning (ML) algorithms and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies to develop better solutions that flag and filter potentially dangerous emails, thereby improving security for end-users.
