U.S. Customer Relationship Management Market size, by application

The entry of new market players with an innovative approach toward offering value-based results to end users is triggering market demand. For instance, an increased number of CRM solutions that focus on user-friendliness are being introduced in the market and the rising adoption of such solutions is boding well for the market. It is also estimated that AI-enabled customer relationship management software, which offers benefits such as the quicker implementation of repetitive and mundane tasks, improved customer retention, and lead customization, would result in high revenue generation in the next few years.

The market offers substantial growth opportunities owing to presence of several well-established players, well-developed business ecosystems, and existence of a high consumerist culture. There is a high impetus by solution providers for training and certification programs in order to create a workforce that is technically sound with CRM functionalities and operations.

A key trend in the market is the increased adoption of social and mobile solutions. This can be attributed to the fact that there are several mobile customer relationship management solutions in the market that deliver a wide range of capabilities on any device connected to the network. Real-time access to such solutions is another major advantage offered by mobile CRM. In addition, the number of smartphone users is increasing exponentially across the globe, which is consequently widening the potential customer base of these solutions.

CRM applications integrated with wearable devices is being touted as the next big thing in the field. If these applications are embedded within wearable computing devices, businesses can modify and improve their customer relationship management strategy based on real-time information about customers and can engage with them on a more personalized level.

However, not all businesses may benefit from a CRM software. This is especially true for businesses that work on a highly standardized customer interaction model. For instance, a process-driven sales channel might not be a major concern for a small-scale organization. Similarly, a large-scale organization may demand a robust CRM capable of driving the business as well as addressing customer queries. In addition, security concerns are likely to exist in a centralized data server environment, which may discourage businesses dealing with critical business or consumer data from adopting such solutions. For instance, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulation levies heavy penalties on organizations in case they are unable to provide privacy protections to all their customers.

Keeping all of this data safe and secure is a major concern for all organizations. The governments of various countries create stringent rules to protect consumer data. There are numerous data breaches caused by CRM software. As a result, the security risk increases. The increasing security threats to the information stored on CRM software are a major impediment to the market growth.

The integration of artificial intelligence in CRM software is expected to drive rapidly. The incorporation of artificial intelligence into CRM systems aids in the enhancement of the customer experience. It aids in machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, and other applications.

Telecom and IT is expected to emerge as the fastest-growing segment over the forecast period.

For instance, software-as-a-service (SAAS) for CRM deployment enables companies to own multiple datasets from discrete systems in order to enhance decision-making and customer service delivery. This approach facilitates various organizations with a vertical-specific CRM to serve a dedicated purpose.

Deployment Insights

The cloud deployment segment is likely to dominate the U.S. CRM market over the forecast period owing to rising awareness regarding the benefits of cloud in terms of cost and flexibility. It offers seamless access to the system from any point or device that proves beneficial for any large-scale business.

These factors fuel the demand for on-premise deployment, resulting in significant growth prospects.
