Global Edge AI Software to Reach Nearly $3.8 Billion by 2028

A report published by Adroit Market Research finds that the global Edge AI Software market will reach nearly $3.8 billion by 2028. According to the report summary, "the increasing use cases," and the "the emergence of intelligent applications," in Edge AI Software are projected to drive the market's growth, whereas "the growing security concerns about data confidentiality is likely to hamper the market growth." An excerpt from the Analyst Commentary section of the report reads:

The growing enterprise workload on cloud across industry domains is the key reason driving the demand for edge AI software solutions. Moreover, in recent years, the growth and development of machine learning and artificial intelligence has buoyed the market incredibly. With the new use cases increasing day by day, the market is projected to increase several folds during the forecast year. However, the concern regarding data theft and data confidentiality are expected to hinder the market growth. The regulations regarding the ethical data use are also likely to hamper the growth of the market.
