I haven't bought Blue Prism, but I do own APPN. I recall APPN purchased a RPA company in January 2020, and I looked back at some APPN stuff on RPA.

APPN has a pretty good description about RPA here https://www.appian.com/platform/robotic-process-automation-r.... I think this confirms that many companies are in this market, but a few like Blue Prism (public) and UiPath (private) are the big pure plays.

In their initial press release, APPN also mentions that they can help companies manage their RPA processes from major RPA vendors like Blue Prism and UiPath. https://www.appian.com/news/news-item/appian-acquires-roboti.... So, APPN clearly acknowledges them as one of two big leaders in the field. It also shows that some "competitors" like APPN also believe the market is big enough to be a complementary player to some of the leaders in the field.
