According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, “Mobile Artificial Intelligence (AI) Market by Technology Node, Component, and Application: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021–2030”, the global mobile artificial intelligence (AI) industry size was valued at $8.56 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $84.80 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 26.44%. The North America region is expected to be the leading contributor to the global market, followed by Asia-Pacific and Europe.
The emergence of edge-AI technology allows moving many of the backend profiling AI capabilities to the phone itself. Smartphones with an AI combo, are one of the biggest trends in the market today. AI has several uses on a handheld device, though the benefits are limited initially. Several mobile manufacturing companies are competing to develop AI features for smartphones according to the needs of the users. For instance, Apple, Samsung, and Huawei have introduced smartphones with powerful AI chips that can perform up to 5 trillion operations per second and use significantly less power to accomplish tasks. With AI, these phones provide features from Face ID to augmented reality.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) forms a key part of the engine behind the continued advancement of extended reality (XR). The AI technology gives mobile devices the ability to process and understand the 3D world, providing the platform for more engaging XR services. Also, with enhanced visual detection capability, AI-powered camera enables smartphones to offer more enriching photography experiences, empowering users to capture their vision. In addition, AI technology is even used to improve photo quality, with an AI-recognition of depth that enables digital image postproduction editing of blur and sharpness. As the smartphone market shifts from selling technology products to delivering compelling and personalized experiences, AI solutions running on the smartphone will become an essential part of vendor roadmaps over the next two years.
The prominent factors that impact the mobile artificial intelligence (AI) market growth are High demand for Artificial Intelligence in smartphones, growing demand for AI-capable processors, and rising investment in Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies. However, High pricing of artificial processors restricts the market growth. On the contrary, the emergence of edge computing is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market. Therefore, these factors are expected to definitely affect mobile artificial intelligence (AI) market growth during the forecast period.

North America region is projected to have the most significant increase in demand, as it provides a suitable environment for startups and SMEs, in terms of government regulations and compliance. The overall mobile artificial intelligence (AI) market analysis is determined to understand the profitable trends to gain a stronger foothold
Covid-19 Impact Analysis
The COVID-19 outbreak has positively as well as negatively affected major businesses worldwide by disrupting production cycles and supply chains across industries. The smartphone industry has faced some challenges in eradicating the pandemic, as the number of infections shows no signs of subsiding. Half of the world is currently facing a second wave of the pandemic.
The slowdown in productions by OEMs and reduction in demand for mobile device and other electronics devices has slightly pulled down the market for mobile artificial intelligence (AI). However, as vaccines roll out across the globe and the pandemic situation is better controlled, especially in North America and Europe. This would boost the recovery of growth for the mobile artificial intelligence (AI) market revenue.
