Human-based transcription services can assist businesses, government agencies, non-profit corporations, and government agencies in maintaining accurate records. They can also assist in improving staff training programs by giving written data and ensuring compliance with rules. In judicial procedures, proper transcribing can aid in the preservation of crystal-clear versions of court judgments. Thus, the increasing demand for maintaining accurate information is expected to drive market growth in the coming years.

Introducing new products to help emerging verticals track accurate data is becoming increasingly important in response to growing demands. For instance, Robin Healthcare has launched its own AI-based product Robin using cutting-edge technology. The device captures conversations between medical practitioners and patients in exam rooms and uses the data for clinical documentation. Robin posts it within 24 hours in an EMR for evaluation. Companies benefit from such services because they enable employees to listen instead of taking notes.

Transcripts have become an integral part of many industries, including healthcare, education, media, and entertainment. In response to the growing demand for transcription services, primary market participants are launching innovative services. Advanced techniques and automation have driven the market’s growth in healthcare, education, and the legal industry. As students with hearing impairment and learning difficulties become increasingly dependent on transcription services, they also adopt them. These factors will accelerate the industry’s growth.

Vertical Insights

The U.S. transcription market is segmented into medical, media & entertainment, government, education, BFSI, legal, and others. The education sector is bifurcated into two more categories, academics and corporate. The academics segment is further divided into K-12, universities, undergraduates, and individuals. The academics segment is likely to account for the significant market share in terms of education, followed by the corporate sector with the highest CAGR of more than 9.0% over the forecast period.

The medical sector uses transcription services to record patient history and ongoing treatment details that other healthcare providers can access. The service providers require a high level of expertise to maintain accuracy in documentation while interpreting medical terms. Therefore, significant players emphasize advanced medical transcription services to address the demand in the segment. For instance, in December 2021, Amazon Web Services (AWS) launched Amazon Transcribe Medical, a machine-learning service for medical practitioners to convert medical consultations to text using voice recognition technology.

Transcription services have gained a reputation in the legal industry as faultless legal transcriptions are essential for paralegals, court reporters, attorneys, and law firms. Due to its ongoing demand, the legal transcription market is subjected to further growth. According to an article published by ParalegalEDU.org in October 2021, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has projected an almost 9.0% increase in legal captioning in the coming decade.

Type Insights

The transcription market is segmented into software and service based on the type. The software segment is further sub-segmented into digital recording and electronic reporting. The software-based transcription services are anticipated to witness significant growth owing to the increasing demand for automation, easy accessibility, and time and cost-saving benefits. For instance, OTTER.AI, a software-based transcription company, transcribes real-time audio using Artificial Intelligence (AI). The software is accessed on systems as well as on mobile devices. One may also integrate the software with Cisco WebEx, Zoom, and Google meet to import recordings.

In the coming years, the services segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR of around 6.9% due to the growth of multi-media industries.
