Intelligent Apps Market Dynamics
One of the key trends observed in the intelligent apps market is the increasing preference for app-based advertising among enterprises. The major factors responsible for the shift toward app-based advertising include increasing smartphone penetration and rising number of mobile internet users. AI enables connectivity among devices and facilitates collection of data about the users and their preferences, based on which intelligent apps make decisions, predict user behavior, provide the information based on previous searches, and auto-reply to emails and messages. In addition, intelligent apps assist in reducing mobile advertising frauds by monitoring and analyzing data 24x7. Intelligent apps also provide benefits to companies in terms of increased work efficiency and higher return on investment.
The increasing adoption of advanced technologies such as AI and ML is one of the major factors driving the intelligent apps market. Intelligent apps primarily use these technologies to deliver advanced analytical output based on the data generated from different applications. They support customers by offering them a personalized shopping experience and assist companies to map the future requirements of consumers, thus facilitating improved sales.
Increasing demand for enterprise applications is another key factor supporting the growth of the intelligent apps market. Industries such as banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI), retail & e-commerce, and healthcare are witnessing exposure in terms of the utilization of intelligent apps to automate business operations and offer consistent customer support. For instance, in May 2018, Bank of America Corporation launched an AI-enabled virtual assistant, Erica, which can perform various financial operations, such as making money transfers, providing a weekly snapshot of month-to-date spending, and alerting customers about upcoming recurring charges. Thus, the growing demand for enterprise applications is expected to continue driving the market growth.
