Talent Acquisition Software Market Analysis

The talent acquisition software market is anticipated to register a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecasted period. The rise in the use of cloud-based solutions and the growing need for real-time employee engagement models are the prime factors driving the growth of the talent acquisition software market. Talent acquisition software primarily increases hiring quality, speeds recruitment, and minimizes administration work. Key factors encouraging the development of the talent acquisition software market are the rising demand for talent mobility, adopting paperless or cloud-based business models in HRM services, and advancing AI and machine learning technologies. The market is expected to be further fueled by other factors, such as the emergence of social recruiting trends, a growing need to replace traditional hiring processes to reduce paperwork, wastage of resources and costs, and the rising number of start-up businesses, particularly in developing economies.

  • Key market drivers are the rising demand for improved recruiter efficiency and communication, the growing acceptance of cloud-based solutions, and the increased requirement to expedite hiring procedures. These factors sparked advancements in the talent acquisition software market. Using artificial intelligence in hiring might help businesses cut back on or even do away with time-consuming tasks like manually scanning resumes. Vendors in this industry implement talent acquisition software that enables smooth management of the complete recruitment cycle, from position creation to candidate selection.
  • Software companies worldwide come up with new solutions to sustain themselves in the market. For instance, Hirebee announced starting the Hirebee Bespoke 2021 Program. Hireable Bespoke 2021 is a thriving community of talent leaders, recruiters, and field experts that can share their recruiting needs, find the best solutions to their problems with Hirebee and join their commission-based referral program to help the movement grow.
  • Players in the market provide SaaS recruitment software. It is more adaptable, as the program can be accessed on mobile devices anytime and from any location. Thus, the availability of recruitment software on mobile phones raises market demand for software.
  • The increasing use of mobile-based recruitment systems and the increasing penetration of cloud-based platforms drive the growth of the recruitment software industry. Furthermore, the introduction of automated resume screening technologies that employ artificial intelligence (AI) to assess a candidate's abilities and expertise boosts the market growth.
  • Recruiter chatbots are also gaining traction in the online recruitment sector. A recruiter's chatbot communicates with applicants in real-time by asking targeted queries. Chatbots driven by artificial intelligence are expected to elevate the candidate experience. Job searchers are more likely to have a positive opinion of a business if they receive regular updates during the application process. Thus, increased awareness of the benefits of AI-integrated recruiting strategies is likely to drive market expansion throughout the forecast period.
  • One of the key restraints for the talent acquisition software market is a lack of awareness in various industries. Many commercial businesses employ old-fashioned, conventional techniques and have not switched to modern alternatives to streamline the procedure. Moreover, some companies are not ready to invest in software solutions, which in turn, hampers the market growth.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic brought significant growth opportunities for the talent management software market. People relied heavily on software to run businesses efficiently throughout the lockdown. Companies seeking staff during this pandemic used talent management software to hire and manage their operations. Many companies hired workers to work as independent contractors and used talent management software.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic had two effects on HR technology. Employment rates fell, with many individuals losing their jobs as businesses were forced to furlough or downsize. This created a substantial workload for human resources, much of which had to be completed remotely due to COVID-19 constraints and precautions.

Talent Acquisition Software Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Talent Acquisition Software Market according to our research experts:

Rising Use of Cloud-based Solutions

  • According to Saven Technologies, Google Drive is the most used cloud storage service in the world, with an overall usage of around 94.44%, followed by Dropbox with 66.2%. Thus, the general use of cloud-based solutions is growing exponentially and will eventually help the talent acquisition software market grow in the coming years.
  • As per the Flexera 2021 State of the Cloud Report data, around 92% of enterprises have a multi-cloud strategy, and 80% have a hybrid cloud approach.

Only 2% said they would prefer to go back, while 11% claimed that remote work was unnecessary. Hence, the growing demand for working from home will considerably enhance the need for various cloud-based solutions.
  • Cloud technology is a significant element for organizations in protecting vital data information. Organizations mainly use it for critical services, such as active/long-term retention, host disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS), storing files on a short-term basis, backup PCs and other end-user devices, SaaS applications protected with cloud backup, etc.
