The machine learning market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 44.1% during the forecast period
The machine learning market is expected to grow from USD 1.41 billion in 2017 to USD 8.81 billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 44.1%. The proliferation of large and multidimensional data sets, rising focus towards solving real-time problems from data along with rising demand for sophisticated algorithm platform and tool is driving the adoption of machine learning across the globe.

The major issue in front of most of the organizations while incorporating machine learning in their business process is the lack of skilled employees including analytical talent, and the demand for those who can monitor analytical content is even greater.

Professional service segment is expected to have a larger market share during the forecast period
The service segment in the machine learning market includes professional and managed services. Majority of the companies do not have the expertise to successfully manage infrastructure, and hence, they outsource these services to third-party partners to maintain the level of security and safety. The growth of the professional services segment is mainly governed by the complexity of operations and increasing deployment of machine learning solutions.

Large enterprises segment is expected to have a larger market size during the forecast period
The organization size segment in the machine learning market includes Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) and large enterprises. Emergence in the demand for cloud computing, cloud storage, IoT connected devices, and excessive use of smartphones are some of the prime reasons why large enterprises have turned toward machine learning for processing data. In large enterprises, machine learning has a huge potential for the big data technology in allowing precise decision-making for superior performance.

Asia Pacific (APAC) is expected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period
APAC is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Factors, such as continual growth in the mobile network, increasing the complexity of business, rise in demand for intelligent business processes, and exponential growth in data generation throughout the industry verticals are driving the machine learning market in the APAC region. The North American region is expected to have the largest market share during the forecast period. The major growth drivers for this region are the large-scale investments in implementing machine learning services due to the growth in demand for processed data. Moreover, recently the region also witnessed the widespread adoption of cloud-based machine learning platform among large enterprises and SMEs across multiple verticals.
