Enterprise search refers to the process of querying digital content from multiple data sources via a single search bar. It is typically used for web, ecommerce, customer service, and knowledge access.  An enterprise search tool lets employees search across many enterprise content sources including Salesforce, blogs, Google Drive, SharePoint, Slack, and others to find the most relevant content. However, an enterprise search engine has become the primary search solution trusted across the organization. It needs to harness search technology that can scale across millions of documents, and multiple data types. Such a benefit of enterprise search is to provide digital workers with the most relevant information as quickly as possible. This helps improve proficiency, productivity, employee satisfaction and can lead to greater profitability. Furthermore, increasing demand for seamless data accessibility in several businesses for handling vast amounts of data boosts the enterprise search market growth.

Moreover, increasing availability of cloud-based solution & services and the growing usage of mobile devices are the factors driving the growth of global enterprise search market. In addition, a surge in technological advancements is expected to create numerous opportunities for the growth of the market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The enterprise search market has witnessed significant growth in the past few years; due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the market witnessed a sudden increase in demand during the period. This was attributed to an increase in demand in businesses, as industry was moving to capitalize on the increased automation and digitalization in the sector. Furthermore, the rise in the number of COVID-19 cases influenced governments and local authorities to enforce strict measures such as social distancing and self-isolation policies to the closing of physical shops and businesses. This was intended to help slow the spread of COVID-19 cases, which further caused a growing number of businesses to depend on digital technologies. Such trends accelerated the digital transformation of physical businesses during the period of the pandemic.

On the other hand, the economic uncertainties caused by the pandemic prompted organizations to seek cost-efficient solutions. Consequently, organizations could quickly scale up their business solutions deployments in the cloud to accommodate many remote users without the need for significant infrastructure investments. Moreover, many players were invested in advanced technologies and adopted various strategies such as partnership, acquisition, product launch and others to cater for the business competition.

For instance, January 2023, Glean partnered with Google Cloud to deliver and scale leading enterprise search. This partnership will enable Glean to better service its customers and fulfill its mission by harnessing the limitless potential of Google’s partner ecosystem and network of specialized providers. Google Cloud customers can now also readily leverage Glean to harness the benefit of real-time knowledge discovery and innovative indexing to instantly search across all their applications, while empowering their teams to find the answers and information they need to deliver their best work.

Analyst Review

In the vastly evolving enterprise search industry, several key trends are shaping the way businesses access, manage, and utilize information. One major trend is the increasing focus on AI and machine learning. These technologies are becoming integral to search solutions, making them smarter and more accurate. As artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) play a crucial role in predictive search, assisting enterprises anticipate user needs and streamline the search process.

Moreover, the industry is witnessing a move towards personalization. Users increasingly expect search solutions to provide tailored results based on their preferences and behaviors. To meet this demand, enterprise search is becoming more user-centric, delivering personalized content and recommendations. This not only enhances the user experience but also improves productivity by ensuring individuals find the information they need quickly. For instance, June 2023, search engine developer Glean Technologies Inc. launched the Glean Chat, an artificial intelligence assistant, that can summarize business documents and generate text. Workers can use the tool to summarize recent business developments. The AI assistant can not only specify whether the update was implemented successfully, but also fetch related technical details.

With the growing concern about data breaches and regulations like GDPR, businesses are placing a high premium on securing their search systems. This includes encryption, access controls, and compliance with data protection laws to safeguard sensitive information while maintaining transparency and user trust. In addition, enterprise search is extending its capabilities to support remote work and collaboration. With the rise of remote and hybrid work models, search solutions are being designed to facilitate seamless information sharing and collaboration across distributed teams

Moreover, the industry is moving towards greater integration and interoperability. Organizations are looking for search solutions that can seamlessly connect with their existing software and data repositories, ensuring a unified search experience. For instance, in June 2020, The Netherlands based firm Elastic N.V. (the company behind Elasticsearch and the Elastic Stack), launched the Elastic Enterprise Search on Elastic Cloud. Elastic Enterprise Search is a suite of search products that dramatically simplifies the process of creating enterprise-grade search experiences for both customer and employee-facing search applications. The new offering enables users to deploy both Elastic Workplace Search and App Search with ease and flexibility across platforms and global regions.
