Data Annotation Tools Market size to exceed $25 Bn by 2032

Published Date: May 4, 2023

Data Annotation Tools Market size is expected to cross USD 25 billion by 2032, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Advancements in AI and ML technologies, which heavily rely on labeled data to deploy self-driving mechanisms. The onboard AI is helped by accurately labeled data to make split-second decisions in challenging driving conditions, preventing serious collisions, and object strikes. Advanced data labeling methods help machine vision systems installed in self-driving cars automatically identify, classify, and respond in accordance with the local traffic infrastructure and pedestrian density. These methods include 2D boxing, polygons, semantic segmentation, and cuboids.

Rising use of speech recognition to promote text annotation tools demand

Data annotation tools market from the text segment is predicted to reach USD 10 billion by 2032. Text annotation refers to the methods for tagging and labeling textual material in order to make it understandable by machine learning systems. Text annotation tools annotate important keywords with accurate information in order to increase the effectiveness of NLP algorithms, allowing the creation of voice recognition and text-to-speech applications.

As federal agencies and national security authorities keep an eye on potential terrorist threats, textual data annotation is becoming more important for social media text mining. Security organizations can track potential threat subjects and objectionable content referenced in social media handles using deep learning neural networks linked with text annotation tools.

Increasing need for manual data annotation

The data annotation tools industry from the manual data annotation segment is forecasted to record over 25% CAGR from 2023 to 2032. With the engagement of human data annotation professionals, who can handle unfamiliar data types and complex datasets more effectively than automated systems, manual data annotation gives exact and accurate data labeling outcomes with lower chances of error. The need for manual data annotation increases significantly for essential applications like medical picture labeling. Owing to the need for a high level of expertise for identifying complex medical scenarios like bone fractures and malignant tissues, manual data annotation demand is growing.
