Asia Pacific (APAC) is poised to become one of the leading regions globally for artificial intelligence (AI) within the next decade. China is taking a leading role in APAC, having announced a bold and ambitious plan for making China a global leader in AI by 2030, creating a $150 billion market for core AI technologies. China is the primary driver for AI in the APAC region, but Japan, Korea, India, Taiwan, and Singapore have all announced national AI strategies, focusing on their own niche areas of strength whether it is in software, hardware, or services, helping advance APAC as a leading player in AI.

Although there are major concerns around AI-driven job automation, government surveillance, and autonomous weapons in the APAC region, there is a transformative potential for AI in the areas of healthcare, agriculture, and education, which will extend the benefits of AI to everyone, and with APAC holding 60% of the world’s population, AI has a special role to play in the region. At the same time, AI will also help traditional industries like telecommunications, retail, advertising, automotive, business services, and consumer innovate with new business models, products, and services, creating new market ecosystems and supply chains. The public sector is another key area for AI innovation as Asia Pacific has one of the largest concentrations of smart cities, where growing urbanization brings unique challenges but also opportunities for driving new efficiencies.

This Tractica white paper explores the potential of AI in the Asia Pacific region, focusing on the market drivers and challenges, key market development trends, the AI ecosystem, and market forecasts estimating the growth trajectory for AI software, hardware, and services. These trends draw from ongoing research and analysis that form part of Tractica’s Artificial Intelligence Advisory Service. The white paper is published in partnership with The AI Summit, which is being held September 19-20, 2018 in Singapore.
