However, changing consumer preferences coupled with inconsistent user experience are likely to limit the growth of the market. In addition, the lack of optimized content and lack of co-ordination between marketing and sales teams is impacting the overall market.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the sales enablement platform market. Businesses were shut down due to government-imposed regulations and travel restrictions; which compelled several companies to adopt a hybrid work environment. The industry witnessed a change owing to the adoption of digital sales rooms and the integration of video conferencing for sales teams.

Several market players are setting up digital sales rooms (DSRs) to streamline the seller and buyer experience. DSRs provides a single location for access to content and communication related to a sales cycle. These can be used to collaborate with stakeholders. In addition, the digitization of industries and the rising adoption of connected devices have also promoted the demand for sales enablement platforms.

The use of AI in sales enablement during the pandemic also accelerated market growth. For instance, Allego, a sales enablement market player, reported that close to 50% of sales reps expressed a desire to be trained in virtual selling and AI. Call recordings and AI-based analysis can equip managers with insights necessary to coach sales reps.
