Research and Markets Logo

Cloud-Based Contact Center Infrastructure Market Report presents the foremost, authoritative analysis of this dynamic and rapidly growing IT sector. The Report provides detailed coverage of the competitive landscape, vendors, products, and trends and challenges that are driving this market; it also addresses market share, projections, adoption rates, benefits, return on investment, pricing, customer satisfaction and implementation best practices.

2017 was the breakthrough year for the cloud-based contact center infrastructure (CBCCI) market. Momentum, which has been building for years, has created a large and lucrative ecosystem of partnerships among many types of vendors. There are over 150 CBCCI competitors world-wide, and hundreds of system integrators, value-added resellers (VARs), distributors, technology partners, and more, who are dedicated to building this sector. While this is positive for the market in general, it makes it difficult for customers, who need to differentiate between the offerings. This Report provides prospects with the information they need to help select the best CBCCI solution for their operating environment.

The CBCCI vendors have invested millions of dollars over the past 20 years to build their solutions and supporting networks. These solutions are generally much more technologically current than their premise-based counterparts. And the innovation keeps coming, including the introduction of artificial intelligence, machine learning, natural language understanding and analytics into CBCCI solutions.

The CBCCI vendors are working hard to address security concerns and stay up to date with rapidly evolving security and regulatory requirements, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) in the US, the world-wide payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), the UK's Data Protection Act, the BDSG Federal Data Protection Act in Germany, the upcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and many more.

The CBCCI market is growing rapidly, and a tremendous untapped opportunity remains as more companies transition to the cloud. It's estimated that the revenue size of the cloud-based contact center infrastructure market was at least $2.8 billion (excluding carrier revenue) as of the end of 2016. This represents only 11.4% of total contact center seats, so the revenue potential of this market is in the tens of billions. It's predicted that the number of seats will grow by 22% in 2017, 22.5% in 2018, 23% in both 2019 and 2020, and then growth will slow to 21% in 2021.
