Machine learning captured over 47% of the AI in manufacturing market share in 2018. The technology is used in the manufacturing industry due to rising needs to ensure quality management at every stage of the manufacturing process. ML predicts the quality of the product from the early stages of production with high degree of precision. This detects minuscule deviations from ideal product standards and its self-learning algorithms allow it to detect errors, which were previously unknown.

The context awareness technology segment is predicted to see around 41% CAGR through 2025. The need for highly flexible manufacturing processes is promoting the adoption of context awareness systems. The technology enhances the availability and efficiency of modern production systems simultaneously. It enables self-adaptation to support fluctuations in process parameters aimed at increasing flexibility and efficiency. It also allows effective knowledge acquisition & sharing to support maintenance, increasing the availability of production systems.

The quality management application is estimated to account for 20% stake in the AI in manufacturing market by 2025. Rising competition in the manufacturing landscape is promoting AI technology as a key differentiator to ensure quality control. The lack of quality poses major risks to the performance and competitive position of the company in the market, leading to high costs to the company. This is encouraging manufacturing companies to adopt deep learning & machine learning platforms to reinforce their existing infrastructure and proactivity identify mistakes & errors that can weaken the production chain and the quality of products.

The material movement segment is poised to observe at a CAGR of 43% during 2019 to 2025. As a skilled workforce is becoming increasingly difficult to recruit and retain, companies are shifting toward AI-based machine movement solutions to manage their labor challenges while ensuring productivity and profitability.

The energy & power end-use segment is likely to register gains at above 41.2% till 2025. Companies are investing in AI technology due to its ability to learn and adapt to changing environments. The technology will enable power generation companies to create predictions for the energy demand and its generation based on weather forecast. This will reduce the dependence on backup mechanisms for predicting & managing fluctuations in the production. The speed and the complex nature of the task are encouraging the use of advanced AI technologies in the manufacturing sector.

The heavy metal & machinery industry is set to achieve a CAGR of around 43% during the coming 7 years. The players operating in the heavy metal & machinery sector are using AI technology to optimize their raw material consumption, improve melt costs, and ensure quality finished products. It allows manufacturers to build accurate models based on previous raw material consumption. It reduces the quantity of raw materials consumed, enabling significant cost savings when raw materials used are precious metals such as gold, zinc, or copper.

Asia Pacific dominated the AI in manufacturing market with about 43% share in 2018 and is anticipated to resonate the trend through 2025.
