This IDC study provides IDC's forecast for the hosted and on-demand (cloud) contact center services market for 2015–2019. This study highlights key assumptions and drivers that are creating changes and driving growth in this market. IDC expects that U.S. spending on hosted contact center services was $1.1 billion in 2014 and will increase at a CAGR of 10.8% to $1.9 billion in 2019, and U.S. spending on cloud contact center services was $868 million in 2012 and will increase at a CAGR of 17.7% to $2.0 billion in 2019.
"Consumers today have so many choices in communicating with companies, and even greater expectations," said Melissa O'Brien, research analyst, Worldwide Customer Care BPO Services, at IDC. "This is driving the needs for greater flexibility in contact centers to meet those consumer expectations and thus driving demand for cloud contact center services."
