Key Market Insights
"Robotic process automation (RPA) aiding value to the businesses worldwide"
Robotic process automation (RPA) is the use of software bots to automate highly repetitive, routine tasks normally performed by knowledge workers. Automating repetitive tasks saves time and money. Robotic process automation bots expand the value of an automation platform by completing tasks faster, allowing employees to perform higher-value work. It helps in carrying out high-volume and repetitive tasks that take a lot of time for humans to accomplish, and which are typically monotonous to perform in the robotic process automation market.
Technological advancements have influenced businesses across the world to overcome new challenges aimed to cope with changing consumer demand and requirements. Also, it is helping these businesses to be competitive in the global market. RPA has the ability to deliver seamless operation coupled with significant value addition from the resources. These organizations worldwide are continually looking to identify processes that can be automated to accelerate productivity. In the recent past, large enterprises, as well as SMEs, are increasingly adopting robotic process automation, considering the benefits it is providing to their businesses.
With the increasing competitiveness among the market players, there is a decreasing cost of automation software and services. In addition, a surge in demand for virtual workforce also supporting the growth of the market across the globe. Overall, the global robotic process automation market was US$ 1755.2 Mn in 2021 and is expected to reach US$ 21,066.0 Mn by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 31.8% from 2022 to 2030.
"Service segment dominating the market"
The RPA type segment is segmented into software and service. The service segment accounted for the largest share in the RPA market size in 2021. The service segment accounted for around 60% of the overall revenue share of the market for robotic process automation in 2021. The growing competition among the service providers is continuously enhancing advisory, consulting, and training services. This, in turn, helping the software user and service takers to achieve reduced costs and increased scalability. During the forecast period, it is estimated that the service segment will keep its dominance.
"North America dominating the global market by region"
The North American region dominated the market for robotic process automation in 2021, and it is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The increased penetration of automation and process management solutions across the well-established and technologically advanced industries present in the region have added advantages to the market. Furthermore, SMEs are increasingly adopting RPA technology within their business functions such as accounting/finance, human resource-related processes, and procurement. In addition, strong support from the U.S. government has encouraged all other state governments’ agencies to implement robotic process automation, which has fostered market growth.
The Asia Pacific region is expected to witness the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Rising awareness about automation in the region is also expected to boost demand. Strong industrial growth and increasing investment from global players have added advantages to the adoption of RPA in the region. Furthermore, increasing demand for business process automation solutions in the BPO sector in China and India is contributing to regional growth. However, lack of trained and skilled employees is the major concern in the region and that is obstructing the regional market growth. Furthermore, those SMEs having budget constraints are having affordability issues that prove to the challenges for the RPA vendors.
