The Global Chatbot Market was valued at USD 3.78 billion in 2021 and is projected to register a CAGR of 30.29% over the forecast period 2022 - 2027. The chatbot market is witnessing growth due to increasing demand for messenger applications and the growing adoption of consumer analytics by various businesses worldwide. Vendors across the globe are making significant innovations to their products by integrating technologies such as AI and NLP to cater to customer needs and market requirements.

- Chatbots are software applications that utilize artificial intelligence and natural language processing to understand human needs and guide them to the desired outcome with as minimal work by the end user as possible. They act as virtual assistants for customer experience touchpoints. Bots not only interpret the user intent but also process their requests and give prompt relevant answers.
- The market is primarily driven by the rising domination of messenger applications and increasing demand for customer analytics.
- Due to the increasing use of messenger applications, integration of chatbots with messengers yield a higher return on investment as approaching the customers on their preferred application improves user experience. Moreover, messenger applications allow chatbots to save the user’s chat history for future purposes to personalize the user experience and gain actionable insights.
- The messaging app usage statistics of January 2022 released by Hootsuite show that WhatsApp has 2,000 million active monthly users, followed by WeChat with 1,263 million monthly active users, followed by Facebook Messenger with 998 million Monthly active users. Chatbots with the ability to reasonably mimic humans allow brands to engage consumers more efficiently on these growing messaging platforms.
- With the outbreak of COVID-19, chatbots have been increasingly deployed by various organizations to respond to customer queries and other related information. As different organizations adopted remote working due to the lockdowns imposed, companies became heavily dependent on chatbots to reduce the burden of customer queries due to the minimal availability of customer service employees.
- Marketing and sales teams are often under pressure to gain sales and constantly improve the customer experience. In contrast to traditional customer service, chatbots are available around the clock, even when sales personnel fail to attend to customer queries. Chatbots help support customers without interruption of working hour limitations. Moreover, bots can easily handle a high number of requests and process them all simultaneously without ever being overworked. Thus, the availability of correct information without waiting helps enterprises boost consumer experience using chatbots.

Key Market Trends
Healthcare Segment is Witnessing Significant Growth

- Chatbots in the healthcare industry find their practical usage as they can maintain anonymity about the individual’s identity, especially in sensitive and mental health issues. It can track and monitor a user’s behavior and anxiety to support the development of improved habits. It offers instant reactions, notifications, reminders, and the option to interact with multiple people. Depending on the application, personalization can also be kept at a high level. Some applications use measurements of physical vitals (oxygenation, heart rhythm, body temperature) via mobile sensors, and facial recognition is used to track the behavior of patients.
- The extensive healthcare data, such as disease symptoms, diagnoses, markers, and potential treatments, can be used to train chatbot algorithms. Chatbots are trained on massive healthcare data using public datasets such as COVIDX for COVID-19 and Wisconsin Breast Cancer Diagnosis (WBCD). Conversational chatbots of various intelligence levels may comprehend the user’s questions and respond using pre-defined labels from the training data. For instance, the Healthily app gives information on the symptoms of various diseases and assessments of overall health and patient progress. Similarly, the Ada app can check the users’ symptoms on the go without an appointment. Ada is a fast AI-powered symptom checker that can help the user 24/7. Despite the time and location, in some cases, it has provided correct disease suggestions earlier than the time of clinical diagnosis.

Patients can use chatbots to tell them about their existing health issues, discover doctors and dentists who are right for them, find available time slots, and schedule, reschedule, and remove appointments. Chatbots are also incorporated into the device calendars of the users to give medical appointment reminders and updates.
