The global loyalty management market size was valued at USD 4.54 billion in 2021. The market is projected to grow from USD 5.57 billion in 2022 to USD 24.44 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 23.5% during the forecast period. The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with loyalty management experiencing lower-than-anticipated demand across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a decline of 22.4% in 2020 as compared to 2019. 

By delivering individualized offers, loyalty management software assists merchants and businesses in retaining customers. The software analyses client purchasing patterns, behavior, historical data, and other factors to give reward points, coupons, discounts, and other incentives to customers interested in the company's products or services. This aids in business growth, sales, and wealth generation. BFSI, hotel, retail, media, and entertainment industries are projected to boost their investment in customer-rewarding solutions. For example, PayU incorporated the Twid loyalty program to better serve its 350+ million customers.


Drastic Change in Consumer Behavior During COVID-19 to Drive Market Opportunities

The COVID-19 pandemic had a beneficial influence on the market in relation to software adoption. Almost all businesses, including retail, hotel, transportation, and banking were disturbed as a result of the countrywide lockdown. During the pandemic, end-users’ purchasing patterns changed dramatically. According to a Ketchum survey, 45% of American shoppers changed their brand choices during the crisis. According to the survey, shoppers switched toward larger e-commerce competitors, such as Amazon, Aldi, Walmart, Target, and others, for basic merchandise. This resulted in the adoption of solutions by merchants.

According to the McKinsey analysis, the shift in consumer attitude is projected to extend beyond COVID-19 impacts. As a result, numerous retailers are likely to invest significantly in loyalty management programs to retain new consumers and win back lost customers. As a result, after the pandemic, the program's demand is likely to skyrocket.

Through various analytics, these technologies may forecast human behavior and purchase trends. It is then utilized to target relevant consumers to improve user experience, which is predicted to drive the loyalty management market growth.

These tools’ advantageous features are expected to boost the growth of the market even further.


Growing Customer Preference for Personalized Solutions to Push Market Growth

Key players have implemented personalization capabilities into their reward programs to draw significant growth from them. This feature aids in attracting customers' attention and improving their overall experience. Customers want individualized advice, discounts, and promotions from companies to profit from them. Such initiatives increase client happiness, which drives their adoption across sectors. Brands may acquire customer attention and trust by making individualized suggestions and offers based on data gathered via multichannel solutions. Many shops are implementing individualized incentive programs due to their numerous benefits. For instance,

  • In April 2021, Schuh, a U.K.-based trendy footwear store, partnered with Salesforce.com to develop its reward program. To attract consumers, the program based on the Salesforce Customer 360 Platform creates customer-centric and customized initiatives.

  • In October 2020, Flooid Hub, a point-of-sale provider, worked with HTK Limited to deliver a tailored incentive system for digital and in-store retail.

Retailers like personalized reward programs as they improve sales, consumer loyalty, web traffic, and profit. This is anticipated to boost the expansion of the loyalty management market share.


Stringent Government Regulations May Affect the Adoption of Loyalty Programs

The market's expansion may be hampered by strict government regulations. Concerns regarding various federal and state regulations, such as gift certificate laws, trade stamp laws, data security laws, and privacy laws, may limit the implementation of loyalty programs. Many privacy and security standards & regulations limit merchants' access to client information.
