Market Report Description

The Global Edge AI Processor Market size is expected to reach $5.5 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 15.3% CAGR during the forecast period.

Edge artificial intelligence (edge AI) is a paradigm for creating AI workflows that range from centralized data centers (the cloud) and devices closer to humans and physical objects outside the cloud (the edge). This is in contrast to the increasingly usual approach of developing and running AI applications exclusively in the cloud, which has been dubbed cloud AI.

It also varies from previous AI development methods, in which AI algorithms were created on desktops and then deployed on desktops or specific hardware for tasks like reading check numbers. The edge is frequently defined as a physical object, like a network gateway, smart router, or intelligent 5G cell tower. A better way to grasp the significance of edge is to understand it as a mechanism to extend cloud-based digital transformation practices to the rest of the world.

Analysis occurs in a fraction of a second, which is vital in time-sensitive scenarios. Considering the machines that make up an industrial assembly line. If a robot on the production line is activated at the incorrect moment or too late, the product may be damaged or travel further down the line unprocessed and undisturbed. If the error goes undetected, the incorrect product could end up on the market or cause damage later in the manufacturing process. When the majority of data processing occurs locally, on the edge, a centralized service or data transport will not constitute a barrier.

Large volumes of data are frequently involved in edge AI use cases. Transferring video image data to a cloud service is not a realistic solution if the user needs to process data from a variety of distinct sources at the same time. In a self-driving automobile, there are hundreds of sensors that constantly monitor elements like the vehicle's position and tire rotation speed. Based on the data collected from the sensors, the driving computer can make the appropriate decisions regarding steering, braking, and throttle use automatically.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The influence of COVID-19 on businesses is altering business paradigms. Every organization is affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to provide a safe working environment, businesses are striving to reconfigure their supply networks. Remote working functionality, remote asset maintenance, and monitoring, plant automation, as well as telehealth are all being implemented by organizations all over the world to reduce pandemic risks. The healthcare business has benefitted immensely from the transition from computers to the cloud to the edge.

Market Growth Factors

Enhanced privacy and security

Because there is less data on the cloud, there are fewer tendencies for cyber-attacks. Edge frequently operates in a closed network, making information theft more difficult. A network with several devices is also more difficult to pull down. In general, anything that has a security component should be done on the edge. Considering the intelligent safety monitoring systems in a factory, for example. When devices fail to function properly or people move in an area where they are not authorized to, an alarm should sound before an accident occurs.

Increased cost savings

One of the major features, as well as a driving factor, of edge AI processors, is that it saves a significant amount of money for the company. Edge AI processors are very cost-efficient due to lesser requirements. Because of the scalability of analytics in making key decisions, the edge can save a significant cost for a company. In addition to saving time, the edge can conserve bandwidth by reducing the amount of data that needs to be transferred. This also improves the energy efficiency of the equipment.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Increased latency and high bandwidth usage

Latency issues, privacy concerns, and bandwidth constraints are just a few of the concerns that cloud computing encounters. Chips are now so compact that they can conduct advanced computing functions on Edge-enabled devices natively, making Edge computing a must-have in situations where latency and privacy are critical. When a centralized system, such as the cloud, gets overwhelmed with massive amounts of data, latency issues arise. As a result, real-time business requirements may be challenging to meet with cloud computing.

Device Type Outlook

Based on the Device Type, the Edge AI Processor Market is bifurcated into Consumer Devices and Enterprise Devices. This is due to its advantages, which include energy efficiency. Less data is transmitted to and from the cloud as more data is processed at the edge, resulting in lower data latency and energy consumption. A vast number of companies aim to employ Edge computing solutions for energy efficiency monitoring in the next years.

Type Outlook

By the Type, the Edge AI Processor Market segregated into Central Processing Unit (CPU), Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), and Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC). Application-specific integrated circuits allow for the creation of whole mechanisms on a single chip, which is expected to drive application-specific integrated circuits' growth. An application-specific integrated circuits are chips that are modified for a particular use rather than being developed for general usage.

End Use Outlook

On the basis of End-Use, the Edge AI Processor Market is segmented into Automotive and Transportation, Healthcare, Consumer Electronics, Retail and Ecommerce, Manufacturing, and Others. In terms of volume, consumer electronics dominate the edge AI processor market due to rising technological advancements all over the world. This is due to rising consumer expenditure along with increasing demand for consumer gadgets. Smart wearables, smartphones, and other electronic devices are gaining in popularity.
