Global NLP Market to Reach $80.68 Billion by 2026

A report from Fortune Business Insights finds that the global Natural Language Processing (NLP) market will grow from $8.61 billion in 2018 to $80.68 billion by 2026 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 32.4 percent in the forecast period 2019-2026. An excerpt from the report summary outlines the role of customer experience in driving the market:

Understanding the clients' feedback or requirement is becoming very difficult day by day because of the increasing number of channels through which the clients provide their requirements or feedback. To understand these requirements that are associated with products or services, companies need a platform to manage business processes. Hence, they are constantly looking for an opportunity to enhance customer experience (CX) capabilities. AI and NLP will aid in analyzing the clients' inquiry or comments and further, convert them into individual solutions.

The integration of AI along with NLP can make suggestions based on the history of information, available customer data, or from the instant responses by the client. With the use of advanced technologies, seamless communication can be established between the client and the system. These communications can be saved for further references by the systems. AI along with NLP, can offer unique and customized recommendations that are more specific to the customers' queries. The platform is able to solve multiple channel management problems as it can be integrated with more than one channel. Also, this generates more interactions between the client and the company.
