To mitigate pandemic risks, organizations around the world are taking adequate measures such as remote working capabilities, remote asset maintenance and monitoring, plant automation, and telehealth. A high positive impact has been witnessed in the healthcare vertical, as firms have started realizing the potential of Edge AI Hardware in combating the impact of COVID-19. This has led to increased funding and research to keep businesses safe and secure across the value chain. It is expected that the market will witness slow growth during the pandemic and bounce back with a higher adoption rate across verticals post-pandemic. Organizations worldwide have been using digital infrastructure to continue their usual business activities as it serves as essential infrastructure. Healthcare, the public sector, and education verticals are adopting digitalization at an unprecedented rate. Several clouds and edge companies are offering their computational services for free to the frontline workers to reduce the impact of COVID-19.

Edge AI Hardware Market Dynamics

Driver: Growth in demand for low latency and real-time processing on edge devices

In edge AI, machine learning algorithms use device-generated data and process the data in the device. This reduces latency and leads to real-time, automated decision-making. Applications that require real-time data processing will benefit from the fact that edge AI allows real-time operations such as data generation, learning, and inference. Autonomous vehicles (AVs) have very little time between sensing a possible collision and making an adjustment regarding steering and braking. A large amount of data gathered from an IoT device is transmitted to the cloud, where machine learning (ML) models run and transmit the processed data back to the device, which can lead to a delay in response. On-device AI reduces sharing of data resulting in a faster response. In addition, it may not be feasible to store a large amount of data in the cloud.

Restraint: Limited on-device training

Currently, machine learning models available for edge AI are pre-trained and used for inference. Pre-trained models are offered to users, and the model fine-tunes itself based on the users’ data. Training a model consumes a lot of computational power, and edge AI is more likely to suffer from uncertainty and randomness as it has limited access to training data.

On-device learning has its own advantages:

  1. No need to send data to servers, which may lead to data privacy and security risks.
  2. The model will always be updated related to learning

Opportunity:Dedicated AI processors for on-device image analytics

AI mobile processors support computational imaging applications in drones, wearable electronics, robots, surveillance cameras, and autonomous vehicles. The application of AI-based vision processing units (VPU) can help drones make better decisions and reduce the risk of accidents, which will add to the rising demand for drones for industrial and personal use. Computational imaging and visual awareness applications are enhancing mobile devices by replacing complex optics with simplified lens assemblies and multiple apertures; combining images captured by heterogeneous sensors; including RGB (red, green, blue), infrared (IR), and depth sensors; and extracting contextual metadata from still images and video streams. These factors enable the use of VPUs for a broad range of new application areas and use cases (previously limited to desktops and workstations) in mobile handsets, tablets, wearable devices, and personal robots. VPU-enabled surveillance cameras help real-time data processing in cameras only, rather than in the cloud, which reduces the chances of data hacking and enables faster processing.

Challenge: Power consumption and size constraint

Edge AI devices such as smartphones, cameras, drones, and robots are being introduced in the market with on-device intelligence. However, in the long run, edge AI has to overcome challenges such as power consumption and device size. Cloud-based AI offers advantages such as easier implementation, integration, and scaling and shifts the cost burden from capital to operational expenditure. Cloud-based AI also has the advantage of storing data centrally and off-premise. The size of a neural network is directly proportional to the demand for power, and an increase in size will lead to higher power consumption. The optimization of power consumption with the help of software for deep neural network models is a challenge. There is a need to focus on the joint design of algorithms and hardware to achieve high-performance and power-efficient on-device AI.

The market for wearables in edge AI hardware market could grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The wearables segment could witness fast growth during the forecast period. This high growth rate could be attributed to the augmentation of features among wearables. Wearables are becoming smarter, and the inclusion of AI and edge computing could further enhance their capabilities.

The market for consumer electronics is estimated to account for the largest share during the forecast period in market

The consumer electronics segment holds a major share in terms of volume. This is due to the rising consumer spending and demand for consumer electronics. The demand for smartphones, smart wearables, and other devices is witnessing strong growth. Moreover, the innovation and development of new use cases for edge AI could lead to the high growth of consumer electronics in the edge AI hardware market.
