Mobile Artificial Intelligence Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Mobile Artificial Intelligence Market according to our research experts:

Smartphone Application Drive Growth of The Market

  • The growing demand for real-time voice processing and image recognition is propelling the market for smartphone AI processors. Most AI processors include additional inbuilt neural processing units (NPUs) capable of parallel processing, low power consumption, and cognitive tasks. On-device AI employs dedicated AI chipsets and is expected to become prevalent in all flagship smartphones in 2022. Most new high-end smartphones include AI chips with a dedicated neural processing unit.
  • AI is taking center stage in smartphones, and its applications extend far beyond digital assistants. With the advent of Edge-AI technology, many back-end profiling AI capabilities can now be moved to the phone itself. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) improve mobile phone hardware and software, with implications for marketers and consumers, and make life easier with each update.
  • The virtual assistant features are steadily improving. Some speech recognition now provides a greater understanding than a human listener, even in crowded conditions. Over time, virtual assistants are likely to become a much more significant part of the user phone interface, and AI will identify the natural human language the user provides. In the coming years, smartphone manufacturers are expected to implement even more advanced AI and ML to identify people as their facial features change, such as growing a beard or wearing glasses.
  • Moreover, the growing penetration of cell phones worldwide is also helping the market grow. For example, the mobile penetration in North America had 321 million unique mobile subscribers. By 2025, the penetration rate will increase by 2% to 345 million individual mobile subscribers.
  • Additionally, a growing number of acquisitions and partnerships among tech giants contributed to the market growth. Apple is the leading buyer of companies in the global artificial intelligence space. For Instance, Apple acquired the highest number of AI companies, defeating Accenture, Google, Microsoft, and Facebook. All of the other companies also had an increased number of AI acquisitions.

North America to Occupy the Largest Market Share

  • The North American region is expected to account for a significant share in the market in terms of demand, as it provides a suitable environment for startups and SMEs regarding government regulations and compliance. Also, due to various developments made by these companies, the region is expected to lead in technology adoption and major AI solution providers for mobile applications based in North America, hence driving the market to grow significantly in the forecast period.
  • To generate technological breakthroughs in AI, the United States has decided to promote federal investment in AI R&D in collaboration with industry, academia, international partners and allies, and other non-federal entities. The former President of the United States, Donald Trump, proposed a two-year doubling of non-defense AI R&D in his fiscal year (FY) 2021 budget proposal. The Administration updated its AI R&D strategic plan, released the first progress report describing the impact of federal R&D investments, and published the first-ever reporting of non-defense AI R&D spending across the federal government.
  • AI is built into Google's core. The company successfully transitioned from a mobile-first to an AI-first world. AI is integrated into all Google apps we use daily, including Google search engines, Google Maps, Google Photos, YouTube, and Gmail Smart Reply. Google is driving AI through its technological offerings, such as TensorFlow and Cloud AutoML (to name a few), assisting developers and SMBs in innovating through open-source projects.
  • Additionally, a growing number of acquisitions and partnerships among tech giants contributed to the market growth. Apple is the leading buyer of companies in the global artificial intelligence space. For Instance, Apple acquired the highest number of AI companies, defeating Accenture, Google, Microsoft, and Facebook. All of the other companies also had an increased number of AI acquisitions.
