Global Virtual Meeting Software Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Surge in Product Demand during Covid-19 Pandemic

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, the global online meeting software market has gained significant traction. The growing trend of virtual meetings has increased enterprise adoption of online meeting software and services, which has impacted market value. Businesses benefit from implementing virtual meeting solutions because of the benefits of face-to-face meetings via teleconference services provided by B2B telecommunication. Moreover, with the increased adoption of smartphones and internet penetration, businesses were able to implement virtual event software solutions for online marketing. Furthermore, the COVID-19 outbreak increased virtual marketing events to avoid physical events and increase the customer base. Aside from that, the changing consumer lifestyle has compelled organizations to seek innovative solutions for organizing theme-based events that can be accessed from anywhere. The organization is looking for a change in its IT spending due to the unprecedented speed of digital transformation in 2020 to overcome the challenges presented by the outbreak of COVID-19. Throughout the virtual event, the digital media platform keeps the audience engaged and connected. Because of the increased popularity of social media platforms, marketers are focusing on online marketing strategies such as new product launches, advertising campaigns, brand promotions, email marketing, and product demonstrations. As a result, digital marketing activities are expected to propel the virtual event platform market forward.

Increased Productivity of work-from-home workers

To avoid in-person meetings, there is an increase in demand for virtual communication platforms across industries as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. Real-time information sharing is possible during virtual events like online meetings, video conferences, live chats, and video calls. To improve customer service and get around problems operating different day-to-day business operations due to lockdown restrictions and remote work operations, the organizations use virtual event platforms. Business organizations were able to switch from in-person to online events thanks to unified communication, collaboration, and content delivery technologies. The most interactive and interesting tool for fostering collaboration and communication between customers, partners, stakeholders, and employees of an organization is virtual event software. Businesses understand the value of virtual event software as a strong tool for communicating, interacting, and training with employees regardless of location.

Rise in number of Virtual Meeting Software Providers

Engineering teams began to feel more urgent needs for online meetings than other teams as businesses moved online during the pandemic. To meet the growing demand for meeting-focused applications compatible with their existing platforms, other virtual meeting solution providers also began to steadily increase the release of supporting apps. They spend a lot of money on solving particular use cases for users who require the Scrum Agile development process. Users can start, join, and collaborate remotely, anywhere, across devices, thanks to online meeting software, which also enables more straightforward video conferencing and messaging solutions. Online meeting platforms provide all participants with incredibly interesting and interactive experiences. All these factors boost the growth of the Global Virtual Meeting Software Market during the forecast period (2022-2028).

Utilization of Modern Technologies

The market is growing as a result of an increase in the use of facial recognition technology by both the public and private sectors. This adoption was prompted by worries about civil liberties and privacy, efficacy and accuracy, transparency, and evidence of biased results. Furthermore, facial recognition technologies help businesses increase security at their facilities and provide employees with a multifaceted platform, both of which support the market's expansion. Owners of businesses and internal and external stakeholders can use facial recognition technologies to identify and authenticate meeting participants. As a result, the Global Virtual Meeting Software Market will benefit from lucrative opportunities over the forecast period (2022-2028).

Restraints

High Software and Hardware Cost

The main barrier to virtual meeting software adoption is its high cost for a wide range of applications. Because the cost of products and services encourages or discourages the use of appropriate technology in developing economies, the growth of the virtual meeting software market is expected to be restrained. The high cost of virtual meeting software hardware components such as cameras, virtual devices, and other smartphone devices limits market growth. On the contrary, it is expected that the integration and research of new technologies such as video conferencing software and online conferencing software will reduce costs. Furthermore, increases in monthly subscription fees by key vendors, high setup costs of virtual meeting software, and increases in support service charges impede the market growth. Furthermore, the high cost of additional features associated with virtual meetings, as well as the rise in the cost of different virtual rooms, is a major factor limiting the virtual meeting market.
