Propelled by Greater Ease of Doing Business, Decreasing Cost of Automation Software and Services, and Surge in Demand for Virtual Workforce, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Market to Surpass $8,692.7 Million by 2023

Published Date:   June 2018

The global robotic process automation (RPA) market was valued at $1,195.9 million in 2017, and is expected to generate $8,692.7 million in revenue by 2023, exhibiting a CAGR of 36.2% during 2018–2023. The automated solution market for RPA held the largest share in terms of revenue in 2017. This is attributed to the growth of the banking, financial services, and insurance industry, which is increasingly adopting RPA to improve process efficiency and reduce cost.

Process-Based Business Approach in Organizations

Process-based business approach in organizations is one of the key trends observed in the robotic process automation market. Organizations are increasingly adopting RPA as it can perform complex tasks with utmost simplicity. It enables organizations to gain strategic and operational advantages through cost benefits, which further helps them to achieve their short-term and long-term goals. Financial institutes and business process outsourcing (BPO) organizations are keen on adoption of RPA for their systems to perform repetitive tasks with improved efficiency.

Decreasing Cost of Automation Software and Services Is Driving the Market

With the decline in cost of automation software and services, demand for RPA is expected to witness robust growth in the coming years. This decline is due to the widespread adoption of RPA in financial service, manufacturing, and retail businesses, which is anticipated to further bolster the demand for RPA. RPA offers an edge over traditional labor in organizations, as it requires a fraction of workforce cost and performs tasks with higher efficiency. Hence, decreasing cost of automation drives the growth of the robotic process automation market.
