Outlook on the Intelligent Virtual Assistant Global Market to 2026 - by Application, Product, Type, Technology and Region

·6-min read

Dublin, May 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Intelligent Virtual Assistant Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global intelligent virtual assistant market reached a value of around US$ 4 Billion in 2020. An intelligent virtual assistant (IVA), also known as intelligent personal assistant (IPA), is a software that understands natural language voice commands and aids in completing basic tasks. These tasks can include drafting text messages, searching for information on the internet, finding hotels or restaurants, checking flight reservations, listening to the music, playing games, adding events in a calendar and checking the status of smart home devices. Owing to this, these assistants are nowadays integrated into most gadgets, such as smartphones, smartwatches, tablets and portable speakers. Some of the most popular IVAs include Google Assistant, Apple's Siri, Microsoft's Cortana and Amazon's Alexa.

The increasing investment in research and development activities (R&D) by some of the leading players for introducing innovative products in the industry is strengthening the market growth. For instance, announced in May 2018, Google Duplex is a new project wherein Google Assistant allows users to make reservations via a smartphone without any interaction from their end. Apart from this, the escalating sales of smartphones, along with the rising influence of social media platforms, have led to a substantial rise in consumer awareness about the benefits offered by IVAs worldwide. Besides this, the high demand for automation in services that provide customer support is also impelling the market growth. Furthermore, the rising usage of IVAs by the young generation, coupled with the consistently improving consumer experience, is catalyzing their demand around the world. Looking forward, the publisher expects the global intelligent virtual assistant market to exhibit strong growth during the next five years.
