Gartner : Says Worldwide Robotic Process Automation Software Revenue to Reach Nearly $2 Billion in 2021

STAMFORD, Conn., September 21, 2020
Gartner Says Worldwide Robotic Process Automation Software Revenue to Reach Nearly $2 Billion in 2021
RPA Market Forecast to Grow at Double-Digit Rates Through 2024 Despite Economic Pressures from COVID-19

Global robotic process automation (RPA) software revenue is projected to reach $1.89 billion in 2021, an increase of 19.5% from 2020, according to the latest forecast from Gartner, Inc. Despite economic pressures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the RPA market is still expected to grow at double-digit rates through 2024.

'The key driver for RPA projects is their ability to improve process quality, speed and productivity, each of which is increasingly important as organizations try to meet the demands of cost reduction during COVID-19,' said Fabrizio Biscotti, research vice president at Gartner. 'Enterprises can quickly make headway on their digital optimization initiatives by investing in RPA software, and the trend isn't going away anytime soon.'

Worldwide RPA software revenue is expected to reach $1.58 billion in 2020, an increase of 11.9% from 2019 (see Table 1). Through 2020, average RPA prices are expected to decrease 10% to 15%, with annual 5% to 10% decreases expected in 2021 and 2022, creating strong downward pricing pressure.

COVID-19 Increased Enterprise Interest in RPA

The pandemic and ensuing recession increased interest in RPA for many enterprises. Gartner predicts that 90% of large organizations globally will have adopted RPA in some form by 2022 as they look to digitally empower critical business processes through resilience and scalability, while recalibrating human labor and manual effort.

'Gartner anticipates RPA demand to grow and service providers to more consistently push RPA solutions to their clients because of the impact of COVID-19,' said Cathy Tornbohm, distinguished research vice president at Gartner. 'The decreased dependency on a human workforce for routine, digital processes will be more attractive to end users not only for cost reduction benefits, but also for insuring their business against future impacts like this pandemic.'

Organizations Are Expected to Grow their RPA Capacity

Through 2024, large organizations will triple the capacity of their existing RPA portfolios.The majority of 'new' spend will come from large organizations that are purchasing new add-on capacity from their original vendor or partners within the ecosystem.

'As organizations grow, they will need to add licenses to run RPA software on additional servers and add additional cores to handle the load,' said Mr. Biscotti. 'This trend is a natural reflection of the increasing demands being placed on an organization's 'everywhere' infrastructure.'

Future RPA Clients Will Come from Non-IT Buyers

Adoption of RPA will increase as awareness of RPA grows among business users. In fact, by 2024, Gartner predicts nearly half of all new RPA clients will come from business buyers who are outside the IT organization.

'Leading RPA software vendors have successfully targeted chief financial officers (CFOs) and chief operating officers (COOs), instead of IT alone. They like the quick deployment of low-code/no-code automation. The challenge they have is integrating RPA successfully across heterogeneous, changing environments, which is where IT coordination can make the difference,' said Mr. Biscotti.
