Anti-plagiarism software is used to detect plagiarism and establish the authenticity of a document, article, and other published works. Such software has the ability to detect different types of plagiarism ranging from auto-plagiarism, direct plagiarism, and mosaic plagiarism to inaccurate citations used in the examined document. The increasing incidents of plagiarism and the legal consequences associated with plagiarism are resulting in increased consumption of anti-plagiarism software across the world. Hence, further developments in the accuracy of anti-plagiarism software are anticipated to significantly expand the anti-plagiarism software market over the forecast period.

Market Drivers

  • The increase in academic research by the education sector 

The need for original and authentic academic and research work is the prime market driver of the anti-plagiarism software market. The academic work submitted by students and the research articles generated by researchers must be free from plagiarism in order to publish and gain intellectual property rights over such publications. This is generating a high demand for anti-plagiarism software in the education sector to ensure that the assignment and other works submitted by the students are based on their thinking capabilities and not an imitated version of others’ work. As a result of this, universities and research institutes are using anti-plagiarism software. For instance, Dhaka University in Bangladesh released an anti-plagiarism software to detect any plagiarism in the assignments, thesis, essays, and other articles submitted by students in the Bangla language.  An increasing number of market research and academic research firms across the world employ anti-plagiarism software to prove the authenticity and preserve the integration of their work since a proven accusation of plagiarism against an institution could result in legal consequences as well. Hence, the demand for original research and academic work is propelling the expansion of anti-plagiarism software applications.

  • Favorable government initiatives

The education departments and governmental research sectors are promoting the use of anti-plagiarism software to preserve the integrity of academic research work and prevent plagiarism events in their divisions. The University Grants Commission of Bangladesh announced that it will be centralizing the installation of anti-plagiarism software across different universities in the country to examine academic and research work in English and Bangla languages in June 2021. To facilitate the better working of this software, the Commission declared that it will be introducing a national research space that shall store digital and published works from all over the world. In addition, the Ministry of Human Resource Development in the Government of India announced the application of anti-plagiarism software in institutions and colleges across the country through the ShodhShuddhi platform created by the All India Council for Technical Education in 2020. Hence, the increasing demand for authenticity in research works and the favorable government initiatives to promote the use of anti-plagiarism software is anticipated to drive the demand for the anti-plagiarism software market.

The inability of anti-plagiarism software to detect AI-generated content could limit the growth of the market. 

The major drawback of anti-plagiarism software is to detect the use of AI-generated text in the documents examined by it. The recent developments in AI technology enable students, researchers, and other users to adopt AI-text generator tools to assist them in creating text content and written descriptions. In addition, such AI-text generator tools are also equipped with paraphrasing abilities with increase the difficulty level for anti-plagiarism software to detect any copied content. This could restrain the extensive adoption of anti-plagiarism software across different companies and institutions. However, leading anti-plagiarism software companies such as Turnitin are actively investing and conducting research work to enhance the efficiency of their software in detecting the utilization of AI-generated texts using ChatGPT and other such software. Therefore, further research and development could assist anti-plagiarism software manufacturing companies to overcome this limitation.

North America has a significant share of the anti-plagiarism market and is expected to grow in the forecast period.

North America contributes a prominent portion to the anti-plagiarism software market due to the abundance of research institutes, universities, and other academic institutions in the region and the availability of leading anti-plagiarism software including Grammarly, Inc., and Turnitin.
