The United States debt collection software market size was valued at USD 1,283 million in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 3,220 million by 2031, registering a CAGR of 9.8% during the forecast period (2022-2031).
The debt collection software is a set of procedures for the collection of debt, beginning with the initiation of the loan process and concluding with the resolution of the loan with paid debt. Software for debt collection is extensively deployed on third-party systems, and the financial account containing debt details is shared with the software. This form of organization is referred to as a debt collection agency. If a borrower cannot repay the debt, the account is transferred to a collection agency or sold to one. The software for debt collection includes agency management, reminder scheduling, automated notifications, client management, compliance management, commission management, and contact management.
Significant shifts toward digitalization in nearly every industry vertical have accelerated the demand for automation, particularly in banking institutions. An increase in the need to automate the accounts receivable process among banking institutions worldwide is expected to be a significant factor propelling the growth of the debt collection software market during the forecast period.
Organizations aim to reduce the number of problematic debts written off due to the rising need to strengthen debt recovery strategies. A debt collection software reduces problematic debt by providing features such as locating difficult-to-find debtors and monitoring unpaid debt, which is expected to be a major factor driving the growth of the market in the coming years.
In addition, the need to save time on administrative tasks, such as prioritizing daily activities or preparing for calls, to concentrate on value-adding tasks, such as reducing bad debts, including communication with customers, resolving disputes, and requesting payments, by automating the routine tasks, such as preparing for calls, contributes to the expansion of the debt collection software market.
The collections processes are advancing due to a significant transition toward multichannel digital strategies. In addition, due to an increase in individuals' preference for digital engagement due to increased personalization, the collection software is in high demand despite minimal person-to-person contact.
In addition, the widespread use of smartphones presents a significant opportunity for more efficient collection procedures. As smartphones have narrowed the communication divide between borrowers and creditors, creditors have realized the importance of capturing customers' attention across all marketing and sales channels, which will increase the likelihood of debtor contact. Consequently, an omnichannel digital collection integrates vast capabilities into an existing mobile application or web portal.
Enhancements to software for adding new features and the need to maintain the software up-to-date lead to increased maintenance costs. Incorrect implementation of debt collection software can take years, as it necessitates the entry of a vast amount of data. As issues associated with software deployment with an organization's IT infrastructure can be time-consuming and costly, it delays the intended return on investment from this software. This factor is anticipated to inhibit the growth of the market to some degree.
In addition, a lack of knowledge regarding new processes and tools, a lack of practice and training before implementation, and difficulties with internal and external communication are the most significant restraints on the market. Moreover, data migration issues are significant obstacles to the expansion of this market, as data management is costly and raises security concerns.
The debt collection software market is influenced by rapid digitalization in nearly every industry vertical, an increase in the need to automate the accounts receivable process among banking institutions worldwide, an increase in the need to reduce delinquent receivables, and an increase in the need to optimize collection costs. However, complexities associated with integrating debt collection software with legacy systems and implementing diverse debt collection regulations across the globe, which lead to misinterpretation between various debt collection policies, limit the market's growth to some extent.
In contrast, emerging advanced technologies necessitates enhancements to the current debt collection software to maintain market competitiveness. In addition, the increased adoption of analytics technology, which provides decision-based insights, is driving the deployment of various software applications, including debt collection software.
