Voice To Get Greater Command

With the growing popularity for voice-based applications, the voice assistant solutions industry is set to get greater command in India. The 2019 Accenture study reveals that virtual digital assistant is the fastest-adopted technology in India with 97 per cent satisfaction rate among Indian consumers. The proliferation of smart devices such as; smart speakers, smart TVs etc. and growing preference to voice searches on digital platforms are fueling the demand for voice-enabled chatbots/ voice bots across the industry verticals.

Organizations, especially service businesses have realized the potential of voice-based applications for better customer experience. Therefore, banking and finance institutions, insurance firms, e-commerce etc. are rapidly shifting from text chatbots to interactive bots. Some of the companies have gone one step further by building their voice bots to provide personalized assistance to customers. Goibibos' GIA, ICICI's Ipal, ixigo's ixibaba are some of the popular examples of digital vertical assistants.

While the voice-enabled smart assistant market is on steady growth in India, it largely supports English, restricting the possibilities in the regional languages. This is the area where Indian start-ups can play a pivotal role by going multilingual. At present, Google Assistant, Alexa, Cortana and Siri are the prominent players in the Indian market. However, as the demand for regional language support increases, we will see many domestic players introducing user/industry-specific multilingual virtual voice assistant solutions.

Research states that technologies such as AI, Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR), Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing (NLP) will further boost the industry-wide adoption of voice assistant solutions. This emerging business stream also offers enormous growth prospects to start-ups, smart equipment manufacturers, technology distributors and channel partners in the next 3-5 years.

Smartphones To Become More Powerful

Smartphones will continue to become more powerful with increased computing power and storage. The camera will be the key differentiator for smartphone makers in 2020. The path-breaking innovations in camera meant for professional photography will further make the battle intense among the smartphone players in India. The high-quality camera smartphones with best audio quality are rapidly replacing the professional video cameras in entertainment and broadcast industries and expected to capture the substantial pie in conventional videography industry.

As smartphones are going high-end, batteries will also become more powerful with innovations like fast charging, reverse charging, reverse wireless charging and so on. Powerful batteries require energy-efficient cooling systems and thus, smartphone brands will bring battery cooling systems to address the issue of phone heating. Lastly, with the advent of 5G, technologies such as AI, AR, and VR will become more accessible for users, resulting a boom in the computing power.

Wearable Devices to Grow Multi-fold

The wearable market is a growth spree in India with a descent business of all the major wearable brands. The country became the third-largest wearable market with three million wearables shipped in the second quarter of 2019. Traditionally, the wearable market was dominated by wristbands. However, there is a growing popularity for ear-worn wearables, which is emerging as the fastest-growing lifestyle tech category. The increased awareness about fitness among Indian millennials is also fueling the demand for health trackers such as smartwatches giving growth prospects to wearable manufacturers and retailers with a decent margin.
