US – The global text analytics market has the potential to reach $6.5 billion by 2020 with a compound annual growth rate of 25% between 2014 and 2020, according to a new report from Allied Market Research.

I was surprised to see retail as the leading sector. I have seen more interest in healthcare and the legal industry.
