Global AI Market to Grow by $75.54 Billion from 2019 to 2023
A report from Technavio finds that the global market for AI will grow by $75.54 billion from 2019 to 2023 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in excess of 33 percent in the forecast period. An excerpt from the report snapshot outlines some of the key drivers observed in the market:
Al has evolved into an employee support system as it improves communication, completes vital tasks, and deploys health-focused strategies for well-being. Additionally, Al is also replacing workplace surveys and board-room discussions that are used to generate data on human performance across various parameters. Moreover, AI is highly-efficient when compared to manual methods as it is faster, offers customized insights to managers and HR, and helps in monitoring organization-wide performances in real-time.
In addition to the benefits of AI, the rise in cloud-based AI services will also contribute to the growth of the global AI market that will register a CAGR of over 33% during the forecast period. There is an increase in the demand for cloud-based Al products and services as the adoption of Al technologies in the on-premises data center is expensive. This is inducing major public cloud players to leverage their technical expertise to offer different cloud-based Al products and services. Al-powered applications are used in a wide variety of use cases including recommendation engines, pricing optimization, lead generation, chatbots, and supply chain optimization.
