Through our knowledge in the field of technology companies and our experience in the corporate financewe conducted this analysis of the chatbot industry. With messaging apps on the rise, chatbots are now a milestone. Chatbots are artificial intelligence systems that interact with users through messages, text or voice.
Despite the complexity of the artificial intelligence used to select the content and context of conversations with users, there are a number of platforms and frameworks available to build a sophisticated chatbot. The ease and accessibility of creating a customisable bot coupled with the increased use of messaging apps only demonstrates the growth and strength that will drive the chatbot industry.
According to a recent report by Grand View Research, the global chatbot market is expected to reach $1.23MM by 2025, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24.3%. The projections show growth during the forecast period, as chatbots reduce operational costs for businesses.
Business chatbots will continue to improve in the coming years. Chatbot architecture and design will evolve to the point where interactive AI will become standard for customer service.
