Germany is expected to rise at a CAGR of about 11.2 percent in Europe.
Recent Market Developments
The agent performance optimization market is expected to be driven by significant shifts in technology, value enhancement, and how organizations view agent performance optimization. Another key factor for this market is expected to be the evolution of workforce management from simple hardware systems to a range of sophisticated applications for quality assurance, resulting in advanced solutions for agent performance optimization and customer experience.
Agent performance optimization is expected to widen the spectrum of possibilities and application scenarios, making it easier for management to convey the importance of the contact center to executives. This, in turn, leads to better planning, teamwork, versatility, and reaction to evolving business circumstances, all of which are expected to drive the agent performance optimization market forward in the coming years.
The market for agent performance enhancement is projected to be powered by an increase in demand for outsourcing contact center operations. Outsourcers can distinguish themselves from rivals by demonstrating full savings and value adds with agent performance optimization software, which is expected to drive the agent performance optimization segment in the outsourcing landscape. Demand analytics involving data, web, and speech processing, as well as event notification, may further skyrocket market demand in contact centers, where performance and cost control are paramount.
However, in the forecast period, the high cost of agent performance optimization (APO) software is expected to restrict market development.
The market for agent performance optimization (APO) is segmented and sub-segmented into the following categories
Cloud-Based segment is expected to rise at a 15.2 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) and hit US$4.7 billion by the end of the study period. Following an early evaluation of the pandemic's market consequences and the resulting economic downturn, the On-Premises segment's growth is updated to a revised 11.7 percent CAGR for the next seven years.
Quality Monitoring (QM) software allows users to log, retrieve, evaluate, and optimize agent/customer interactions, resulting in a large increase in the demand for agent performance optimization in the near future. Workforce Management (WFM), which is used as a forecasting tool to predict call volume based on historical trends, also plays an important role in the market for agent performance optimization.
Based on region, Agent Performance Optimization Market is divided into
In the forecast period of 2021 to 2026, North America will dominate the agent performance optimization (APO) market, while Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest rate due to the growing number of global outsourcing hubs for contact centers in the region.
Autonomy Corporation PLC, Aspect Software Inc., Calabrio Inc., NICE Systems Ltd., Verint Systems Inc., Voice Print International Inc., Nexidia, Inc., GMT Corporation, CallMiner Inc., ClickFox Inc., Genesys Telecommunications Laboratories Inc., Enkata, InVision Software AG, Merced Systems, HigherGround are some of the key players in the global agent performance optimization market.
COVID-19's pandemic has caused many contact centers to accept remote working in response to stay-at-home directives and employee health and safety concerns. Indeed, the pandemic is, among other items, a large-scale experiment in telecommuting, as the epidemic accelerates a long-term shift toward a remote workforce. As a result of social distancing mandates, about 90% of global contact center agents were forced to operate virtually from home during the pandemic. Transitioning to a work-from-home model has been relatively simple for contact centers in developing countries. The need for more technologists to step up as Agents of Transformation has not changed in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Following the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Agent Performance Optimization (APO), which was projected to be worth US$2.5 billion in 2020, is expected to rise to US$6.3 billion by 2027. However, it has slow growth due to this pandemic, but it has a positive growth during the forecast period.
