Whichever source consulted, it is clear that this market is thriving and continues to grow. The 2020 pandemic helped drive the increased demand for CCaaS solutions. Pre-pandemic, the call center industry had adoption rates of about 20%. These adoption rates are now expected to grow to 50% of contact centers by 2022.

The same study found that the call center market in the United States was estimated at $100.1 billion USD that same year. The United States, China, Japan, and Canada are all noteworthy call center markets with similar projected rates of growth.
