The global intelligent document processing (IDP) market size was valued at USD 1.75 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 2.30 billion in 2024 to USD 19.32 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 30.5% during the forecast period (2024-2032). Intelligent Document Processing (IDP) is a cutting-edge solution for extracting and classifying documents using various technologies, such as Natural Language Processing (NLP), Optical Character Recognition (OCR), computer vision, and Machine Learning (ML). IDP-extracted data can be used by businesses to reduce manual efforts and discover insights in structured and unstructured documents.

Industries, such as BFSI, healthcare, and manufacturing deal with a huge number of text documents every day. For instance, the insurance industry is considered one of the most paper-intensive industries and deals with more than 100 million documents each year. Processing such large volumes of structured and unstructured data presents a significant challenge to businesses. Hence, an increasing number of companies are turning to innovative technologies, such as intelligent document processing for extracting data efficiently and effectively.

The significant demand for intelligent document processing is majorly attributed to the increasing focus of organizations on digital transformation, need for efficient document management, and growing adoption of artificial Intelligence (AI) and ML technologies for business processes. As per the IBM Global AI Adoption Index Report 2022, 35% of companies reported using AI in their business to boost the automation of tasks and reduce costs. AI-powered document processing also accelerates corporate decision-making by accurately extracting valuable insights from documents and incorporating them into systems or processes.

Businesses are actively incorporating IDP platforms to boost digital transformation. For instance,

  • In June 2022, ITOCHU Corporation, a Japanese trading and business investment company, integrated Intelligent Document Processing platform by ABBYY with its digital transformation (DX) platform. ITOCHU Corporation reduced its overall work time by 49,000 hours per year by combining IDP with Robotic Process Automation (RPA).

Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic significantly accelerated digital transformation across various industries in most countries on account of social distancing and other stringent measures imposed by governments globally. Before the pandemic, digital transformation was lagging owing to various factors, such as complexity and cost. However, the outbreak turned digital transformation into an urgent priority. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), digitalization advanced by an average of 6 percentage points across advanced economies.

As more businesses increasingly adopted digital technologies, IDP became one of the crucial tools on their digital transformation journey. The sudden shift to remote work made it necessary for businesses to have centralized data repositories that gave access to content on any device, irrespective of the location and time. IDP made it possible to organize documents centrally by giving access to users with appropriate permissions. In addition, it significantly reduced physical interactions and paper-intensive processes, contributing to safety measures.

Intelligent Document Processing (IDP) Market Trends

Automated Data Extraction and Contextual Analysis to Propel AI Integration into the Market

Generative AI reshaped the landscape of intelligent document processing by leveraging advanced neural network architectures to automate data extraction and understand complex document structures. Through techniques, such as natural language processing (NLP) and computer vision, generative models can interpret unstructured data, such as images and texts, with remarkable accuracy, leading to more efficient and reliable document analysis.

This technology’s impact is profound, enabling organizations to streamline document-intensive processes such as contract management, invoice processing, and regulatory compliance. By harnessing the capabilities of generative AI, businesses achieve higher levels of automation, reducing manual efforts and errors while accelerating decision-making processes. Moreover, the ability to extract and interpret data from documents in real time has enhanced operational agility, enabling organizations to respond quickly to changing business needs and market dynamics.

For instance, in February 2024, Mphasis launched DeepInsights Doc AI, a document-processing tool that used generative AI to extract context-specific information from documents. This tool integrates the extracted information with downstream IT systems to generate insights, offering capabilities such as context-aware search, information extraction, and insight generation with recommendations.

Intelligent Document Processing (IDP) Market Growth Factors

Increasing Need for Automated Document Management to Fuel Market Growth

As businesses grow, the amount of business documents also increases. These documents include reports, files, and records that are related to various business functions. Handling and organizing these documents are crucial to save valuable time, increase accuracy, and reduce costs. As per a survey, manual data entry errors in the supply chain, procurement, and other business functions cost businesses more than USD 600 billion every year. To overcome this concern, companies are expected to increasingly adopt Intelligent Document Processing during the forecast period. IDP leverages machine learning algorithms to precisely extract information from documents, reducing dependence on manual data entry. In addition, the rise of cloud computing is further augmenting the adoption of IDP as cloud computing allows firms to access and manage their documents anywhere and at any time.


Data Security Concerns Coupled with Challenge of Handling Unstructured Data to Hamper Market Growth

IDP involves the processing of sensitive information. Hence, data security and privacy have become some of the major concerns that are anticipated to hinder the market growth. Moreover, the challenge of handling unstructured documents also poses a significant challenge for the widespread adoption of IDP. Unstructured documents lack a predefined format. Thus, extracting valuable insights from such documents requires the use of advanced AI models.
