Market Report Description

The Global Automation COE Market size is expected to reach $2.1 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 37.2% CAGR during the forecast period.

A self-sustaining, internal, and scalable team of specialists known as an automation Centre of Excellence (CoE) manages and operates software robots. The implementation of robotic process automation (RPA) standards procedures and processes across the whole organization helps in sharing best practices, promoting the adoption of common technology, and developing a strong governance model.

Automation COE Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2018-2028

To scale up their projects and optimize the advantages of automation, both businesses that are just starting to use robotics and organizations that have already begun to benefit from automation can construct an automation CoE. Rapid transformation is made possible by the center of excellence, which also manages associated risks, and makes sure that the automation expenditures are managed properly.

It thus, makes it possible to enable the business to run and track its initiatives effectively. Automation CoE lies at the nexus of speed, control, and agility. Process automation is no longer considered a novelty. The management of a company, as well as its clients, suppliers, partners, employees, and shareholders, all have a fundamental expectation that automation will increase productivity and human potential.

A company can have severe congestion if automation initiatives are scattered throughout the company. Implementing a center of excellence, a form of controller that's necessary for accelerating and scaling enterprise automation efforts, is a method to prevent backups and retain control.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The pandemic had a positive impact on the automation CoE market. To make it easier for employees to complete work from home, businesses throughout the globe were rushing to ensure that every worker has access to the necessary amount of internet bandwidth to perform their jobs effectively while staying put. Companies employed bots to look at the zip codes of employees, find out what the internet speed is in their area, and collect information about employees' Wi-Fi plans to configure where improvements need to be made to employee internet packages.

Market Growth Factors

Aids in increasing return on investments across business

Without an automation business model, a decentralized approach to ROI can quickly get out of control owing to inadequate RPA acquisition, process automation selection, support, and training. This is especially important if there is no automation operating model in place. In addition, business units frequently select projects that are excellent prospects for automation in an attempt to get rapid returns on investment. Businesses typically steer clear of more complicated strategic initiatives that, among many other things, require cooperation from the IT department. Greater ROIs, however, are connected with bigger, more complex endeavors.

Uninterrupted business operations by utilizing RPA maintenance

According to the findings of the research, studies of automation created opportunities for both employment creation and autonomy. Employees reported that automation assisted them in reducing the amount of repetitive work they had to do, giving them more time to engage in external and internal collaborative efforts and cooperation. This additionally helped in redeveloping facilities, and/or overcoming more complex employment problems that can contribute to value-adding innovation and solutions. A study found that employees asserted that automation contributed to reducing the amount of repetitive work they had to do.

Marketing Restraining Factor

High costs of deployment and development of RPA

The deployment costs of RPA account for a sizeable portion of the total ownership cost of an RPA program and can be responsible for almost half of the initial costs incurred. Documents known as SDDs (solution design documents), or PDDs (process design documents) which are normally prepared on paper and used to instruct developers about automation design, are now considered archaic. If there is not a proper governance system in place, these attempts at automation are likely to fail right from the beginning.

Organization Size Outlook

On the basis of organization size, the automation COE market is divided into large enterprises and SMEs. The large enterprise segment procured the largest revenue share in the automation CoE market in 2021. Large enterprises typically have extensive corporate networks as well as a variety of different income streams. They frequently make investments in cutting-edge technology in order to improve their operational efficiencies. Large companies have dominance in the automation COE market because the sophistication of their partner networks gives them a competitive advantage.
