According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, “Voice User Interface Market by Offering, Application, and Industry Vertical: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021–2030,” the voice user interface market size was valued at $13.65 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach at $95.41 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 21.5% from 2021 to 2030.
A voice user interface is an advanced artificial intelligence-based technology able to make spoken human interaction with digital or computer applications using speech recognition software to understand and answer spoken commands. A sequence of artificial intelligence technologies is intended to build virtual user interfaces such as automatic speech recognition, named entity recognition, and speech synthesis.
Furthermore, the backend infrastructure such as artificial intelligence technologies used to create in-voice user interface speech components are often stored across private and cloud where user speech is processed. Moreover, rapid automation across residential and automotive sectors is considered as one of the major voice user interface market trends.
The growth of the global voice user interface is majorly driven by surge in penetration of Internet of Things-based digital home applications and high demand for self-service applications. However, rise in concerns regarding data or information privacy related to voice user interface-enabled devices is acting as a prime restraint of the global market. On the contrary, development in artificial intelligence technology and surge in demand for voice user interface-based navigation system technology in the automotive sector are anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for the voice user interface industry during the forecast period.
The solution segment was the highest contributor to the market in 2020. Also, the consumer electronics and automotive & transportation industries collectively accounted for around 63.0% market share in 2020.
Surge in adoption of cloud-computing technology application across consumer electronics and automotive sector enterprises has led the growth of solution segment.
The outbreak of the COVID-19 has significantly impacted the growth of the voice user interface market. The delay caused in construction projects due to partial or complete lockdown in various regions of the world has significantly reduced the demand for voice user interface-based digital applications during the pandemic. However, it has created more demand from residential sector, owing to a surge in demand for digital applications and work-from-home policies implemented by the governments of several countries. Hence, the residential sector witnessed prominent growth post pandemic for the voice user interface.
Moreover, the consumer electronics sector has witnessed pre-eminent growth during and post pandemic for the voice user interface market.
Region wise, North America holds a significant voice user interface market share in 2020. The adoption of smart speaker and voice assistant solution at the residential and commercial level is expected to propel the growth of the voice user interface industry in this region. Moreover, surge in demand for voice assistant and speech recognition technologies across retail & consumer and BFSI sectors in North America is anticipated to boost the voice user interface market growth in this region.
