U.S. customer data platform Market

The growing use of social media, e-commerce channels, blogs, and webs by consumers is enabling enterprises to gather insights into consumer behaviors. These insights help them determine the changing preference of customers to cope with competitive environments. Such efforts are primarily being undertaken by organizations to engage with consumers more effectively and provide customized products. The manual collection of information on customer profiles, coupled with the categorization and segmentation of the information, is time-consuming and incurs high operational costs. This is encouraging organizations to invest in a data platform that enables continuous customer engagement and offers unified consumer profiles.

The importance of a customer data platform among industry participants has increased over the forecast period owing to the growing awareness about the features & benefits of such platforms amongst marketers. A customer database was observed to be the most critical factor among marketers for modeling campaigns, depending on target customers. This resulted in the gradual transformation of a data platform, from access type to analytics- & campaign-based CDPs. Autonomous data collection from first, second, and third-party sources and the development of real-time customer profiles have paved the way for increased adoption of a customer data platform.

The advent of stringent regulatory mandates pertaining to consumer data privacy is one of the key factors contributing to the CDP market growth. Vendors are implementing GDPR tools along with a CDP to help providers comply with the necessary mandates. The inclusion of GDPR tools helps providers build trust among their customers. For instance, Piwik.pro, a tag management and enterprise analytics platform-based provider, integrated its GDPR consent manager and customer data platform to create customer profiles from first-party data sources while adhering to the regulations and compliances.

Increasing funding and investments by major organizations in such platforms are further contributing to the growth of the market. As per the CDP institute, the CDP vendors raised funds worth more than USD 1.5 billion in 2018. Such investments are expected to encourage vendors to integrate advanced technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence with CDP for providing accurate results. A study conducted by the CDP Institute indicated that approximately 4,000 enterprises deployed customer data platforms in 2018. All these factors are anticipated to contribute to the growth of the market.

Type Insights

On the basis of type, the CDP market is segmented into analytics, campaign, and access. The campaign segment accounted for the highest revenue share in 2018. It is expected to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast period. The ability to collate customer data points from various sources, enable the segregation of customers based on different parameters, and provide real-time insights to perform targeted marketing has contributed to the demand for campaign customer data platform.

The analytics type segment is anticipated to gain traction over the forecast period. It is expected to register the highest CAGR over the forecast period.

As per the study of CDP Institute, 34% of the B2B companies planned to deploy CDP in 2019. The deployment of CDP in BFSI industries is anticipated to increase over the forecast period. The growing adoption among BFSI enterprises can be primarily attributed to the increase in dependency on technology for marketing products and services catered to a specific group of consumers.
