Market Overview

The United States Customer Technical Support Services Market was valued at USD 7,570.6 million in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 11,719.7 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 7.69% over the forecast period, 2022-2027.

  • American businesses are increasingly embracing intelligent automation as part of initiatives for digital transformation that provide immediate advantages. To improve customer assistance during the pandemic, more American businesses are implementing conversational AI technologies, like chatbots, virtual agents, and voice assistants. The most common hosting choice for conversational AI is the public cloud, although on-premises deployment is preferred in heavily regulated sectors like banking and healthcare.
  • A New York-based business called Lang.ai is creating a technology that automatically tags client chats to handle service issues rapidly. It revealed in May 2022 that it had raised USD 10.5 million in a Series A fundraising round coordinated by Nava Ventures (bringing its total raised to USD 15 million). Existing help desk platforms, like Zendesk and Intercom, are used by the platform to extract concepts from customer inquiries.
  • Focusing on long-term commitment effectively preserves a positive relationship between suppliers and customers, much like other technical support trends. Companies that outsource seek clients with whom they may develop a long-term connection. Contrarily, choosing the ideal technical support outsourcing partner is a time-consuming process. Businesses are working to establish long-term cooperation and reliable relationships so that both companies can profit from one another cost-effectively. Therefore, long-term ties are far more beneficial than short-term commitments when it comes to business development.
  • The rising fraudulent activities in the name of tech support make the customers suspicious; it hampers and tarnishes the image of the tech support industry and makes it difficult for technical assistance due to low trust and suspicion toward such services. This overall costs the company their support operations and forms a challenge for them.
  • Due to COVID-19 and its rapid adoption of online channels across customers, businesses have developed extraordinary speed to provide top-notch customer service and compassionate employee care. Brands have reviewed how they use contact centers, how their staff provides great customer experiences, where those employees work, and how they might use digital channels to support the growth in contact center volume. During the pandemic, the market was initially at risk due to the sharp rise in call volume and abrupt switch to remote work-from-home models, but over time, these changes have given rise to a tremendous opportunity for the United States Customer Technical Support Services Market.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Requirement for Software Update to Drive the Market

  • The United States is highly susceptible to cyberattacks and hacking, according to the FBI, CISA, and NSA identified attacks involving ransomware against 14 of the 16 critical infrastructure sectors in the United States in 2021 alone. Additionally, the number of ransomware complaints filed to the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) climbed by 82% between 2019 and 2021, while ransom payments increased by 449% within the same time frame.
  • According to the shifting technological landscape and the regular introduction of new viruses, enterprise IT software needs to be updated and patched on a regular basis to be safe from cyberattacks. Cyberattacks are more likely to occur with outdated and vulnerable software, which can lead to the loss of important and valuable data. There are already cyberattack tools on the market designed to take advantage of recently discovered software and hardware vulnerabilities. Businesses may suffer considerable financial and operational losses as a result of such attacks, which increases the demand for patch management software.
  • Software support services are typically provided for specific software packages as technical support or break/fix services. These services include revenue from on-demand, incident-based support, or long-term technical support contracts. Typical components of software support services include remote troubleshooting capabilities, installation assistance, and fundamental usability support. Remote troubleshooting skills may be offered over the phone and online communication channels and automatically using tools that run on the customer's device or are online.
  • The installation of new software, software updates, migrations for significant software releases, various proactive or reactive on-site services, and support for custom applications or infrastructure software are all software support services. A product vendor, a consultancy company, or a third-party software maintainer are all capable of providing services. This category of software goods and technologies includes infrastructure, application, and commercial and customized operating systems. Updates and upgrades to software licensing codes, which manufacturers frequently classify as software maintenance, are not included in software support services.
  • In the natural course of events, industry disruptors appear before the peak of an S-curve. Organizations have time to plan for and welcome change. COVID-19, on the other hand, arrived like a curveball from left field. Digital transformation quickly transitioned from optional to necessary, and some businesses lacked the agility to thrive. Many organizations must immediately adopt untested remote work technology to continue operating. Project management tools like Basecamp, Zoom, and Google Docs, have become standard. The pandemic's immediate impact caused numerous gaps in the installation and updating of software and systems. The personnel must now complete an upgrade formerly handled by an on-site IT team. The need for technical support services increased as a result.

Increasing Adoption of Smart Home Devices and Electronics to Boost the Market Growth

The strong demand for smartphones, automotive technology, health devices, and streaming services will drive much of the anticipated income.
  • According to the CTA, Smartphone shipments are anticipated to increase by 3% from 2021 to 154.1 million devices, or USD 74.7 billion in shipment revenues, in 2022 (149.6 million). The increasing trend is caused by the expanding availability of 5G, as 73% of smartphone shipments (revenues of USD 61.37 billion) will be made up of 5G devices in the upcoming year. The availability of foldable phones will provide consumers with additional options, which will increase demand.
  • The most popular wearable technology for keeping customers connected, productive, and entertained are wireless headphones and smartwatches. This year, smartwatch shipments are expected to bring in USD 7.1 billion, an increase of 8% from 2021. An estimated USD 9.3 billion in shipment revenues for truly wireless earbuds are predicted for this year, up 3% from 2021 to 2022.
  • Through the pandemic, connected fitness equipment expanded significantly, resulting in shipment revenues of around USD 3.8 billion in 2021. According to the CTA, the shipment revenue for linked exercise equipment would increase by 17% to close to USD 4.5 billion in 2022.
