The global edge artificial intelligence (AI) software market value was ~$1 billion in 2020, and during the forecast period (2021–2030), it is expected to grow at a substantial rate. The increasing usage of cloud-based applications in many sectors, fast improvements in the internet of things (IoT) technology, and developments in a number of smart applications are significant driving elements for the edge AI software market.
The implementation of lockdown due to COVID-19 had a positive impact on the global market for edge AI software. The usage of this software has surged in the healthcare sector as firms have begun to understand its capability in battling COVID-19. For instance, it aids in decision making by collecting data from various sectors. Organizations worldwide have been utilizing computerized infrastructure to proceed with their typical business exercises. The medical care and training verticals are embracing digitalization at an exceptional rate.
The video & image recognition category within the data source segment attained the largest share in the market in 2020, and in the coming years, it is predicted to continue to hold the major market share. This can be primarily ascribed to the increasing demand for edge AI software for video surveillance applications because it is designed to minimize risks and maximize crime prevention.
The major application area in the edge AI software market is video surveillance, and it is expected to have the largest market size during the forecast period. The increasing requirement for security and observing frameworks, which are software-based and used by developers, pushing the interest in edge AI software for video surveillance.
Additionally, the autonomous vehicles category is projected to observe substantial progress during the forecast period. This can be mostly credited to the growing interest and investments in autonomous vehicles by automakers. The increasing development of autonomous vehicles, including level 3 and level 4 variants, has increased the opportunity for the adoption of edge AI software.
North America was the largest market for edge AI software in 2020, and it would show significant growth in the forecast period. This can be ascribed to the major focus on technical research and development in the region, which had led to the earlier adoption of new technologies, including AI, here than in other regions around the world.
Developments in IoT applications can be seen as a key factor increasing the interest in edge AI software, as edge computing addresses the challenges of IoT. IoT applications deal with devices that interact with each other using the internet; AI allows the devices to learn from the data gathered. IoT empowers the trading of information between different parts of a machine or production line over a wireless network. Many market players are putting resources into the improvement of IoT-based gadgets and applications to gain a significant position in the market. In 2019, AI-based food traffic monitoring software was developed, which allows store owners to collect data about the client traffic patterns in the shop.
The rapid developments in AI software have resulted in an increase in the demand for intelligent applications. These applications require a high computing power for gathering and processing information continuously, to give effective and significant outcomes. The rising need for the efficiency of ongoing data processing is propelling the interest in AI software. Therefore, AI-enabled applications are being developed by many market players for various sectors, which would help the edge AI software market grow.
As enterprises are rapidly shifting to cloud computing and AI is gaining interest, the demand for edge AI software is predicted to soar. AI applications deployed on the cloud often offer slow responses, and they also have latency issues. Edge AI software offers a solution to this issue by placing the computer resources at the edge of the network, which helps in enabling applications to function with low latency and high bandwidth. This would be one of the major reasons for the growth of the edge AI software market in the coming years.
