The global customer experience management market will reach $32,87-billion by 2030, with a CAGR of 15,8% from 2024 to 2030, according to market researchers Grand View Research.

Customer experience management (CEM) solutions are gaining widespread popularity in diverse industries and, as businesses become more customer-centric, the market is expected to witness rapid growth over the forecast period.

Ongoing trends such as hyper-personalisation of customer service, the use of AI & automation, and various customer value models are the key attributes propelling the growth. Moreover, implementing robust social media customer service can help reduce costs, increase response times, improve customer satisfaction, and increase the adoption of the CEM platform across industries further driving industry growth.

As working from home becomes more common, facilitated by video conferencing, digital transformation of the customer and employee experience will be critical for growth. Remote working frequently leads to higher Employee Satisfaction (E-SAT), which leads to higher overall Customer Satisfaction (C-SAT). A remote workforce allows an organisation to hire the best talent from all over the world – which improves both the local and global customer experiences.

Organisations that want to keep their customer experience scope onshore/nearshore could benefit from a right-shored work-at-home model rather than an offshore-only model. These developments would further drive industry growth.

Organisations have implemented new business models to broaden their customer reach and improve the end user experience. Organisations are also working to improve their ability to adapt to changing customer expectations as well as market conditions. Several industries and industry verticals are expanding their customer reach by utilising various e-commerce models such as e-retail, direct-to-customer (D2C), marketplace, and social commerce.
