The global synthetic data generation market was valued at $168.9 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $3.5 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 35.8% from 2022 to 2031.

Surge in digitalization transformation across enterprises and rise in adoption of advanced technology such AI and ML drive the growth of the market. However, lack of skilled workforce hamper the growth of the market. Furthermore, increase in demand for connected devices and IoT and other technologies is expected to provide the lucrative growth opportunities for the synthetic data generation market in the upcoming years.

Synthetic Data Generation Market

Synthetic data is computer-generated data fast becoming an alternative to real-world data. Instead of being gathered from real-world documentation, computer algorithms generate synthetic data. As advanced AI applications are being developed, companies find it difficult to acquire large quantities of quality datasets for training ML models. However, synthetic data is helping data scientists and developers tide over these challenges and develop highly credible ML models. Such advancement provides the lucrative opportunities for the synthetic data generation market growth in the upcoming year.

On the contrary, engineers often require highly quantitative accurate, and diverse datasets to train and build accurate ML models. Synthetic data helps in reducing the costs of data collection and data labeling. In addition to lowering costs, synthetic raw data helps address privacy issues associated with sensitive real-world data. Furthermore, it reduces bias compared to real data as the developer controls the distribution of synthetic data. It can provide higher diversity by including anomalies that are difficult to source from authentic data. Such benefits create the numerous opportunities for the market growth during the forecast period.

One of the key benefits that synthetic data could provide is in progressing data testing and sharing capabilities, both internally and externally with other government departments, academia and other sectors. Minimum friction across services will aid collaboration, which will ultimately help to improve services for the consumers.

Moreover, synthetic data will also help to promote data literacy and understanding. It will help to build quick dashboards that can be built on this realistic replica. This data literacy can then help businesses to make more informed decisions. Further, it could also open doors to further data sharing and cross collaboration, leveraging the benefits of crowd-sourcing innovation, working with industries and academic institutions. In the current landscape these opportunities can be very limited, and require a lot of effort to materialize, thus, likely to drive the growth of the synthetic data generation market.

Top Impacting Factors  

Increasing Adoption of Advanced Technologies Such as Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML):

Enterprises are using technologically advanced methods to increase the operational efficiency. Emerging advanced technologies such as, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and nanotechnologies are driving the growth of the synthetic data generation solutions market. Organizations are taking advantages of new and emerging technologies to mark their presence in the global market, and generate more revenue opportunities.

Furthermore, synthetic data will be a key technology in tackling data management challenges across domains of privacy, predictive analytics, security, and overall data-centricity. AI-powered synthetic data generating algorithms of today digest real data, learn its features, correlations, and patterns in great detail, and are then able to generate infinite amounts of completely artificial, synthetic data matching the statistical qualities of the originally ingested dataset. The modern, synthetic datasets are scalable, privacy-compliant, and contain all of the original meaning without the burden of sensitive information. Such advancements drive the growth of the synthetic data generation industry in the upcoming years.

Enabling the Development of Automotive Sector and Driver Safety Systems:

The emerging technology is already an essential component of autonomous driving and computer vision AI systems. Synthetic data combines techniques from the movie and gaming industries (simulation, CGI) with generative neural networks (GANs, VAEs), allowing car manufacturers to engineer realistic datasets and simulated environments at scale without driving in the real world. Synthetic data enables manufacturers to focus on specific objects of interest.

Further, synthetic data generation market trends play an increasingly important role for manufacturers to meet the demands of the in-cabin driver safety monitoring system without tapping into the data of real-world drivers. With increase in concerns around privacy, using synthetic data can increase the driver’s safety without compromising drivers’ privacy.

Furthermore, synthetic data can help automotive manufacturers build robust computer visions systems and give them an edge on monitoring driver behavior. Automotive manufacturers can generate thousands of unique identities using synthetic data with granular control of emotion, gaze angle, head pose, accessories, environments, and camera systems on-demand. Therefore, manufacturers will be able to build more robust training models to monitor large-scale motions such as a driver taking their hands off the wheel and smaller-scale motions such as eye gaze. The massive demand for high-quality synthetic data will continue to push the envelope to meet the demands of the modern connected vehicle, thus driving the growth of the synthetic data generation market.
