The chatbot market was valued at USD 17.17 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 102.29 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 34.75% over the forecast period, 2021 – 2026. Virtual assistants are increasing because of deep neural networks, machine learning, and other advancements in AI technologies. Virtual assistants, such as chatbots and smart speakers, are used for various applications across several end-user industries, such as retail, BFSI, healthcare, Events Management, Software Development, Education etc. Businesses are adopting such newer technologies, primarily due to reliance on speed, 24×7 availability, reduced cost of operation, trust, and consistent communication.
Although a thumping growth is expected in adoption of bots by businesses and consumers, since the technology is very new a debate continues to rage about whether chatbots are viewed as annoying or helpful by customers. In fact, both views are true. And the determining factor for whether a user likes interacting with a chatbot — or even prefers it to a human interaction — depends entirely on the context.
With the rise of chatbots and their use for various purposes, companies working on chatbots are integrating their respective bots with third party tools. Two of the major such integrations of chatbots are with WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. People communicating with a brand or business over WhatsApp can indeed talk to a chatbot to get assistance 24×7
