The loyalty options market will attain $ 30.92 billion
The Software as a Service (SaaS) Customer Engagement market is expected to grow significantly through 2026. Customer engagement software helps manage customer communications and interactions across a variety of channels and touchpoints. Customer service is the primary reason that enables customers to show brand loyalty, thereby generating consistent revenue for companies in all industries. According to a report by Aspects Software, 66% of consumers did more business with at least one company because of good customer service. Additionally, in 2018, 56% of consumers used AI at least once a week for their customer service interactions. With the increase in smartphone and internet usage, customers can easily access information about various products and services through multiple channels such as the web, social media and other applications. With an average time spent on mobile phones of around 5 hours per day and the availability of multiple customer touchpoints such as websites, social media, live chats, phone calls, brands find ample opportunity in addition to personal support to connect with customers of their brand and generate more sales . A report from Mordor Intelligence said the loyalty solutions market is valued with $ 15.52 billion in 2020 and is expected to be achieved $ 30.92 billion by 2026 with a CAGR of 12.65% in the forecast period (2021-2026). Active companies in today’s markets include Infobird Co., Ltd (NASDAQ: IFBD), Zeta (NYSE: ZETA), Zendesk, Inc. (NYSE: ZEN), HubSpot, Inc. (NYSE: HUBS), Sprinklr, Inc . (NYSE: CXM).
Mordor Intelligence added, “In addition to cloud-based solutions, the integration of AI is another trend that is becoming a standard offering by vendors in the market. According to Pegasystems, a leader in the market, in 2018 67% of customer experience leaders who used AI believed it was not only a tool to make the customer experience more efficient, but also to build more meaningful relationships with consumers. However, data security and privacy issues can hinder the growth of the loyalty solutions market. According to the study by Aspect Software, retail is one of the industries with the highest customer churn rate, with the main reason for brand switching being a poor customer experience. In such a competitive retail market, the need to acquire new customers and retain existing customers is crucial for retailers. “
