The global natural language processing market was valued at US$ 9.7 Bn in 2019 and is anticipated to further cross US$ 30 Bn by 2028 (henceforth, referred to as the forecast period). 85% of business engagement is expected to be done over the forecast period without human interaction. Chatbots are also projected to save more than USD 8 billion dollars for organisations worldwide by 2020. Many industry experts also argue that by the end of 2020, 25 percent of all businesses will incorporate a chatbot or virtual client assistant using NLP technologies into their customer services.

Vanguard piloted an intelligent agent that helps its customer service staff answer the frequently asked questions. It plans to eventually allow customers to engage with the cognitive agent directly, rather than with the human customer-service agents.

In addition, NLP is used by financial institutions for different text mining applications, cross-border payments, foreign exchange, and many other applications. Citibank, for example uses NLP for text mining and for biometric security applications. In compliance and fraud prevention, text analytics also helps. For example, it is necessary to monitor electronic banking communications (chats, emails, and instant messages) to reduce the risk of fraudulent account operations, external business operations, and sharing sensitive customer information.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic the market is witnessing growth in healthcare sector. For instance, In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the White House and a coalition of leading research groups have prepared the COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19). CORD-19 is a resource of over 200,000 scholarly articles, including over 100,000 with full text, about COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, and related coronaviruses. This freely available dataset is provided to the global research community to apply recent advances in natural language processing and other AI techniques to generate new insights in support of the ongoing fight against this infectious disease. Such developments are further expected to drive the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Large Organizations are Expected to Register a Significant Growth

  • Large organizations are one of the primary drivers and investors in the NLP market. As these organizations are increasingly adopting deep learning, along with supervised and unsupervised machine learning technologies for various applications, the adoption of NLP is likely to increase. Cost and risk are some of the major factors driving the adoption of these technologies among large organizations. 
  •  Additionally, many small enterprises are dependent on large enterprises. This is due to some of the broad platform offerings from Amazon, Google, or Microsoft that are way too general, wherein, they still may be used in the industry verticals.
