Demand for IBM Watson Services Surging from Healthcare and BFSI Sector, States Fact.MR

Published : 05 Jul 2021 Industry: Technology

As per Fact.MR - a market research and competitive intelligence provider, with increasing digitalization and ascending demand from the healthcare and BFSI sector, the IBM Watson services market is poised to surge at a CAGR of 30% over the next ten years.

Prospects for IBM Watson services continue to be bullish on the coattails of high traction in healthcare & BFSI sectors, and effectiveness in real-time consumer choice decoding & curtailing process downtime in manufacturing facilities, states the latest Fact.MR study.

North America has been envisaged to emerge as the most remunerative market for IBM Watson services, underpinned by demand from regional businesses that seek reinventing themselves for providing differentiated experiences to their clients. Healthcare is set to prevail as the leading industry vertical in the market, trailed by banking, and finance & insurance (BFSI). IBM Watson language services will remain dominant in the market based on service type, accounting for over 3/5 share of the market throughout the forecast period.

The IBM Watson services market is consolidated at the top and fragmented at the bottom due to less investment cost and easy availability of the skilled labour needed for these services.
