Report Overview

The global digital experience platform market size was valued at USD 7.53 billion in 2018 and is expected expand at a CAGR of 10.9% from 2019 to 2025. Increasing efforts by the companies to deliver personalized, integrated, and optimized user engagement and experience across multiple marketing channels are expected to drive the growth. Furthermore, rising adoption of the Digital Experience Platforms (DXPs) by marketers has enabled them to seamlessly reach customers through multiple digital devices and promote cross selling and upselling. DXP enables users to rapidly build and deliver integrated, optimized user experiences across multiple digital channels.

Over the last few years, due to increased digitization and preference for omnichannel approach, customer experience has emerged as the key competitive differentiator for brands. Companies are deploying DXPs to communicate with customers across multiple points of interaction using dynamic and customized content based on customer’s specific needs or product preferences. Furthermore, the capability of DXPs to collect and analyze the customer buying behavior and unify customer data obtained from multiple touchpoints to create a centralized view is also a major factor driving the market growth. In addition, integration of emerging technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), big data, and Machine Learning (ML) have enabled key solution providers to upgrade their DXs, thereby driving the demand for digital experience platforms across multiple applications.

U.S. digital experience platform market

Web 2.0 technologies have enabled companies to deliver a dynamic web experience to improve customer interaction and engagement. Rising adoption of Web 2.0 technologies, such as hosted services, video sharing websites, social networking, microblogging, collaborative consumption platforms, web applications, and podcasting is playing a pivotal role in driving the adoption of digital experience platforms. DXPs also enable companies to analyze the user experience and customer data using a pre-integrated stack. Furthermore, the seamless integration with multiple business systems, in-built analytics capability, and customer activity monitoring components has also enhanced the capabilities of DXPs.

The companies are deploying DXPs to facilitate customer retention by developing long-lasting business relationships by anticipating customer requirements. The digital experience platforms also enable companies in recommending and delivering suitable content and suggesting loyalty rewards based on customers lifetime value. For instance, the growing adoption of interactive kiosks for delivering banking services and related products is also expected to drive the adoption among banks and Non-Banking Financial Companies (NBFCs). A large number of fintech startups is also deploying digital experience platforms to effectively improve their customer interaction and engagement process to compete with the dominant market leaders.

However, the integration issues with legacy business processes and infrastructure, rapidly evolving DXP technologies, and reluctance to upgrade to customer-oriented marketing and communication strategies are the major challenges impacting the growth of the DXP market. Furthermore, the lack of an experienced workforce to manage multiple solutions as part of the DXPs is a major concern for SMEs and startups. To overcome these issues, users are reducing their reliance on single-vendor platforms due to the lack of functionality to support multiple processes. Companies are now adopting a multi-vendor approach to provide DXP for internal-facing employee Experience (EX) and the outward-facing Customer Experience (CX) functions.
