TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Intelligent Virtual Assistant market to grow at a CAGR of 39.2 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the growing data explosion in enterprises.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Enterprise Computing team said: ''Increased demand for mobile-based virtual assistants is one of the major trends in the Global Intelligent Virtual Assistant (IVA) market. Several vendors have come up with mobile applications with virtual assistants. For instance, Nuance Communications has developed a mobile app called Nina. Nina is a speech-based virtual assistant, developed using speech recognition, voice biometrics, and NLP technologies. Another vendor SpeakToit is also developing virtual assistants specifically for mobile devices. A SpeakToit assistant is a virtual assistant on the user's mobile device that performs tasks based on its conversation with the user. The increased penetration of smartphones is one of the major factors contributing to the growing demand for virtual assistants in mobile devices. Most of the mobile applications are deployed by the smartphone users as compared to other mobile phone users.''
