Market Definition:

The Virtual Digital Assistant (VDA) Market size was valued at USD 13.36 billion in 2021 and is predicted to reach USD 75.39 billion by 2030 with a CAGR of 21.2% from 2022-2030. 

Virtual Digital Assistant (VDA) is an advanced software program that can perform tasks or services for an individual based on commands. It uses artificial intelligence (AI), natural language processing (NLP), natural language understanding (NLU), and machine learning to collect data, process it, and combine with historical information so that its algorithms can create data models that can identify hidden behavioural patterns. These data models are then refined gradually with time as more data is added to its database. 

By learning user’s behavioural patterns and preferences, digital assistants can answer complex questions, provide recommendations, make predictions, and simulate a conversation. These things enable VDAs to perform jobs for end users such as adding tasks to the calendar, providing quick information that would be normally searched in a web browser, and controlling smart home devices, including lights, fans and devices that can be remotely operated. The most popular Virtual Assistants currently available in the market are from Amazon, Apple and Google (Alphabet).

Market Dynamics and Trends:

Development of newer and advanced virtual digital assistant software such as Alphachat, Hyro, and Netomi, along with third-party equipment to run them have significantly reduced human efforts and increased the work efficiency.
