The Global Edge AI Hardware Market size is expected to reach $21.4 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 17.4% CAGR during the forecast period, according to the -The “Global Edge AI Hardware Market Size, Share & Industry Trends Analysis Report By Function (Inference and Training), By Device Type, By Component (Processor, Memory and Sensor & Others), By Vertical, By Regional Outlook and Forecast, 2022 – 2028” report by ResearchAndMarkets.com
In edge AI, machine learning algorithms handle IoT-generated data on near-end devices to solve the issues of excessive latency and insufficient security. A vast amount of data collected by an IoT device is sent to the cloud, where machine learning (ML) models are executed and the processed data is transferred back to the device, which may cause a delay in response. However, AI in the gadget reduces data exchange, allowing for a quicker response.
IT and telecoms are collaborating to deliver new capabilities for high-end apps and reduce network latency with the introduction of 5G networks. The 5G network enables the development of data centers at edge modules and the implementation of industry-specific networks in a single environment using virtualization and software-defined networking principles. Critical AI applications like autonomous vehicles, industrial automation, surgery, and robotics require ultra-low latency.
By Device Components, the Edge AI Hardware Market is segmented into Smartphones, Surveillance Cameras, Robots, Wearables, Edge Servers, Smart Speakers, Automotive, and Smart Mirrors. The smartphones segment acquired the highest revenue share in the edge AI hardware market in 2021. Due to the increasing demand for smartphones is anticipated to boost the growth of the edge AI hardware market. Edge AI provides smartphones with enhanced imaging and photography skills, power efficiency, and security.
