Report Overview

The global AI training dataset market size was valued at USD 1.15 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.5% from 2021 to 2028. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is gaining significant importance in various industrial applications such as manufacturing, IT, BFSI, retail and e-commerce, and healthcare. The growing demand for application-specific training data is also opening opportunities for new entrants. AI is becoming vital to big data as the technology allows the extraction of high-level and complex abstractions using a hierarchical learning process leading to the need for mining and extracting meaningful patterns from voluminous data.

Europe AI training dataset market size, by type, 2018 - 2028 (USD Million)

The AI enables machines to learn from experience, perform human-like tasks, and adjust to new inputs. These machines are trained to process massive data and determine patterns to accomplish a specific task. To train these machines, certain datasets are required. To cater to this requirement, the demand for AI training datasets is increasing.

The working of machines entirely depends on the dataset provided. Thus, it becomes essential to provide high-quality datasets for training. This high-quality dataset enhances the performance of AI. It also helps in reducing the time required to prepare data and increases the accuracy of predictions. Thus, vendors in the market are also focusing on acquiring companies that can help them to enhance the quality of data.

For instance, In March 2020, Appen Limited, a specialized dataset provider, announced the acquisition of Figure Eight Inc., a provider of the machine learning platform. The latter company creates high-quality data by transforming unlabeled data with the help of automated tools. This acquisition will help the former company to increase the creation speed of a high-quality dataset. It will also help in enhancing the quality of data.

Type Insights

The text segment caters to the AI training dataset market share of 32.9% in 2020. This is due to the high use of text datasets in the IT sector for various automation processes such as speech recognition, text classification, caption generation, and others. The audio segment is expected to hold a moderate share due to the availability of a wide range of audio datasets. These include music datasets, speech datasets, speech commands datasets, Multimodal Emotion Lines Dataset (MELD), environmental audio datasets, and many others.

The image/video type segment is expected to register the highest CAGR in the forecast period. This is due to the rising focus of key players to launch new datasets with a rising number of applications. For instance, In May 2020, Google LLC, a multinational technology company, announced the launch of a new AI training dataset named Google-Landmarks-v2 that contains millions of images and thousands of landmarks. The company also launched two challenges on Kaggle, landmark retrieval 2020 and namely landmark recognition 2020. These datasets were launched for image retrieval and instance recognition and to train better and robust systems.

Vertical Insights

The IT segment caters to the market share of 31.5% in 2020. Based on vertical, the market is segmented into it, automotive, government, healthcare, BFSI, retail and e-commerce and others. AI in healthcare offers various opportunities in therapy areas such as lifestyle and wellness management, diagnostics, virtual assistants, and wearables. Apart from this, AI finds application in voice-enabled symptom checkers and improving organizational workflow. All these applications require an extensive dataset to provide accurate results. Thus, the use of datasets will rise thereby leading to high CAGR in the forecast period.
