Rising demand for RPA in the BFSI industry is likely to create more market opportunities during the forecast period. The BFSI industry uses RPA software for automating new account entries, financial report generation, loan approval process, and auditing support & validation process. For instance, in July 2020, Deutsche Bank’s corporate division in China onboarded Blue Bot ‘Yi’, a first digital employee to allocate the employee ID number, work on email addresses, and handling financial reports, supporting the industry trend.

Several market factors challenging the industry growth include lack of experienced employees for the implementation of RPA software within an organization. RPA is one of the advanced industrial practices integrated with natural language processing, machine learning, and AI technologies to apply rule-based and time-consuming business processes. Practical implications of RPA software increase the ROI of the organization; hence, RPA providers arrange training and consultation services for the small- and large-scale businesses to develop and acquire new skill set related to RPA.

The global RPA market is poised to see a provisional stoppage due to the spread of the COVID-19 in the world. With the rising number of cases in early 2020, many businesses are experiencing financial losses and immediate disruption in the supply chain management, hampering the industry growth. However, to increase the market share, many industry players are focusing on acquiring small businesses, new product development, product launches, and partnerships with government organizations.

For instance, in May 2020, Kryon, one of the providers of RPA software partnered with Bank of Jerusalem to offer financial services to customers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
