RPA Market to Rise at a CAGR 22.3% Till 2026; Widespread Applications in Retail Industry Will Emerge in Favor of Market Growth

February 03, 2020 | Information & Technology

The global robotic process automation (RPA) market size is projected to reach USD 6.81 billion by the end of 2026. Driven by applications across diverse industries, the market will exhibit a considerable CAGR in the coming years. According to a report published by Fortune Business Insights, titled “Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Deployment (On-premise, Cloud), By Application (Administration and reporting, Customer Support, Data Migration & Capture Extraction, Analysis, and Others), By Operation (Rule-based, Knowledge-based), By Industry (Retail, Manufacturing and Logistics Industry, BFSI, Healthcare, IT and Telecom, Hospitality, and Others), and Regional Forecast, 2019-2026,” the market was worth USD 1.39 billion in 2018 and will exhibit a CAGR of 22.3% during the forecast period, 2019-2026.

Robotic process automation is a system that helps configure a computer software into a robot. This is primarily used to replicate human tasks and workforce, which significantly helps reduce human error. The use of robotic processes will also help minimize the time required for performing repetitive tasks. The growing adoption of automated concepts in human-interactive tasks will have a direct impact on the growth of the market in the coming years. RPA systems possess the ability to generate responses and communicate with several connected devices in real time. An RPA robot can operate efficiently for longer durations, and in the same time create minimum errors. The properties of RPA system have led to a wider product adoption, which in turn will aid the growth of the market in the coming years.

Increasing Company Mergers Will Aid Market Growth

The report encompasses several factors that have contributed to the growth of the market in recent years. Company collaborations and mergers are a growing robotic process automation market trend among major companies across the world. The report highlights a few of the major company collaborations of recent times and gauges their impact on the growth of the market.
