The artificial intelligence (AI) software market has experienced tremendous growth over the past several years. Many enterprises have discovered that AI software can help cut costs and generate new revenue streams. Yet, AI software remains a relatively small portion of overall software sales, with varying acceptance across industries. The AI software market has entered a new phase in which AI is a requirement for most enterprises to compete on a global level. Significant opportunity lies ahead for AI software market penetration despite short-term economic and market turbulence from the COVID-19 pandemic.

AI software employs several different technologies that give computers human-like abilities of perception, reasoning, planning, and decision-making. Most AI systems today are machine and deep learning (ML and DL) systems; other technologies include natural language processing (NLP), computer vision (CV), machine reasoning (MR), and strong AI. Omdia has built a taxonomy of 340 AI use cases across 23 industries that captures the software opportunity related to AI. A new breakout aggregates the 340 use cases to 14 horizontal markets. Under the moderate impact scenario, global AI software revenue is expected to grow at a 34.9% CAGR to reach nearly $100bn in 2025.

This Omdia report provides a quantitative assessment of the market opportunity for AI software. To assess the COVID-19 impact, Omdia outlines four forecast scenarios through 2025. The study includes market sizing, segmentation, and forecasts for 340 AI use cases, including more than 200 unique use cases. Global market forecasts, segmented by scenario, use case, industry, technology, geography, horizontal market, and meta category, extend through 2025.
