Type Insights

The service segment accounted for more than 60% revenue share of the robotic process automation market in 2019 and is anticipated to continue its dominance over the forecast period. With intense competition, service providers are continuously enhancing advisory, consulting, and training services. Such continuous development assists the user to achieve reduced costs and increased scalability. For instance, robotic process automation services implementation identifies the automation opportunities, optimizes the identified processes, builds a business case, focuses on right vendor selection, and takes a step for pilot project deployment. Such methods strengthen the core of RPA and result in the successful implementation of the platform.

The software segment is expected to expand at 38.7% CAGR over the forecast period owing to the demand for adoption of RPA to tackle remote working issues and reduce the company expense on additional employees. The leading vendors provide software/ platform license based on enterprise requirement to automate the processes. For instance, the UiPath RPA platform includes UiPath studio, UiPath robots, attended robots, unattended robots, non-production robots, and UiPath orchestrator, and the user can get the license for either a single user called named user or for multiple users called concurrent user. The pricing model varies across each vendor, and enterprises can get customized solutions as per their industry requirement.

Service Insights

The consulting segment accounted for the largest market share of over 42% in 2019. The growth is attributed to rising awareness about automation among organizations. Organizations are focused on adopting robotic process automation solutions to provide enhanced solutions to customers. Thus, the demand for consulting services is anticipated to grow significantly over the forecast period.

The robotic process automation services ensure infrastructure management by continuous development of application management services and related consulting. These services are vital for the integration and development of a robust automation environment. Increased adoption of these solutions is propelling the growth of the consulting and implementation services in the market for robotic process automation. RPA providers are offering customer-specific solutions. Thus, the implementation service segment plays an important role in market growth over the forecast period.

Deployment Insights

The on-premise segment accounted for the largest market share of over 90% in 2019. Traditionally, the deployment of robotic process automation was initiated in large-scale enterprises, which enabled the RPA vendors in building use cases. As these organizations were skeptical about the exposure of their data and information, it led to large-scale deployment of on-premise based offerings. Also, it is an expensive affair for providing a robust technical environment for on-premise deployment; the organizations are anticipated to move to cloud-based deployment, which also enables them to improve the speed of execution.

The cloud segment is projected to exhibit the highest CAGR of 43.2% from 2020 to 2027. The growth is attributed to the increasing adoption of cloud-based solutions. RPA on cloud offers an added advantage of the ease of deployment, lower infrastructure cost, and lesser upgrade and maintenance costs. Customers are inclining more towards cloud-based deployment over on-premise as it can deal with the cybersecurity concerns in a robust manner. Furthermore, the cloud-deployed robotic process automation enables flexibility in scaling the operations and helps in gaining real-time access to data regardless of the location of the employees.

Organization Insights

The large enterprise segment led the market and accounted for more than 67% share of the global revenue in 2019. Increasing demand for autonomy has propelled virtual workforce acceptance and adoption among large enterprises. The adoption of RPA among large enterprises enables them to rely on automation for improved efficiency, reduced costs, reduced human errors, and enhance regulatory compliance. The vendors are assisting their existing clients with an extended licensing period at no additional cost that highlights the importance of RPA during the pandemic. For instance, in April 2020, FPT software extended the licensing of its product akaBot by up to three months for its existing client. Additionally, in April 2020, UiPath offered free software to the healthcare sector and its Automation HUB at no cost to enterprises.

The SME segment is projected to witness the highest CAGR over the forecast period. With the implementation of RPA, SMEs can improve their productivity and hence gain a competitive edge. In the recent past, there has been an upsurge in the awareness regarding the benefits of using automation among SMEs. Higher adoption of robotic process automation in BPOs is expected to provide growth avenues in the emerging economies. However, several small and medium-sized organizations have limitations, in terms of cost and human resources; hence they are focused on keeping their operations as lean as possible. This has resulted in the leveraging of robotic process automation among small enterprises for transitioning from human workers to automation.

Application Insights

The BFSI application segment led the market and accounted for more than a 29% share of the global revenue in 2019. RPA implementation is expected to be higher in the BFSI sector due to the increasing automation of business tasks, such as data entry, compliance regulations, and assembly and formulation, which results in increased speed, efficiency, and comprehensive insights. Financial service organizations are coping with an ever-increasing number of data volumes and transactions structured around legacy systems that are hard to integrate. The implementation of robotic process automation is enabling the organizations to realign resources intended to focus on high-value customers and strategic roles.

The pharma and healthcare segment is projected to expand at the highest CAGR over the forecast period. RPA solutions are increasingly being adopted in the healthcare industry as the sector is characterized by labor-intensive activities and demanding patient data compliances along with the ever-increasing amount of data processing. Healthcare service organizations are using smart tools to implement fast automation for processes such as admissions and discharge, clinical data interoperability, and health plans.

The implementation of RPA is expected to assist the hospital management in covering complicated and time-consuming processes, including data flow between departments, paperwork digitization, laboratory work, and human resources. In April 2020, Automation Anywhere, Inc. launched intelligent automation solutions to help healthcare organizations, enterprises, and government implement remote working and business continuity programs. Furthermore, increasing work pressure in the pharma and healthcare sector owing to the pandemic is expected to boost the adoption of RPA solutions to minimize the time consumed in redundant tasks.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market and accounted for over 37% share of global revenue in 2019. This can be attributed to the increased penetration of automation and process management solutions across the region. Additionally, a strong inclination of SMEs for adopting RPA within their business functions such as accounting/finance, human resource-related processes, and procurement has contributed significantly towards market growth. The U.S. government has realized the benefits of the RPA tool and has encouraged all other government agencies to implement robotic process automation, which has fostered market growth.

The Asia Pacific region is expected to witness the highest CAGR of 43.3% over the forecast period. Automation, which includes machine learning, robots, and AI, are the frontiers for market growth in the region. Rising awareness about automation in the region is expected to boost demand. Furthermore, increasing demand for business process automation solutions in the BPO sector in China and India is contributing to regional growth. However, SMEs in Indian are more concerned about data security and have affordability issues that prove to be challenging for the RPA vendors. Additionally, the lack of training for RPA among the SMEs in Japan proves to be a concern while implementing the technology. However, enhanced awareness within the region is anticipated to boost the growth of the market for robotic process automation.
