Report Overview

The global ambient intelligence market size was valued at USD 18.44 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24.4% from 2023 to 2030. The increasing number of smart city projects and growing preference for smart homes with the support of Ambient Intelligence (AMI) creates intelligent environments that can adapt to the changing needs and preferences of the users and provide a more seamless and convenient experience, monitors and controls energy consumption and optimize waste management. It assists cities in becoming more sustainable and reducing their carbon footprint by providing real-time data and insights. The United Nations expects 70.0% of the world's population to be residing in cities and urban areas by 2050, which means AmI systems would also have a vital role to play in smart urban transportation networks for improving transportation efficiency, facilitating eco-friendly water disposal facilities, and enhancing energy efficiency of the buildings.

U.S. ambient intelligence market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The proliferation of IoT devices, which are connected to the internet, has led to an increase in the number of connected devices that can be integrated into an ambient intelligence ecosystem. AI technology can analyze the vast amount of data generated by these devices and provide insights that can be used to improve the user experience and make the environment more responsive. The increasing demand for smart homes and buildings, which are equipped with IoT devices and AI technology, is further driving the adoption of these technologies in ambient intelligence. Smart homes and buildings can provide a more convenient and energy-efficient living and working environment.

COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of healthcare applications for ambient intelligence systems, such as remote monitoring and support for patients. The COVID-19 outbreak has accelerated the adoption of software agents. Due to the implementation of social distancing measures, many patients were seeking remote healthcare services to avoid exposure to the virus. Affective Computing helps to reduce the cost of healthcare services by providing remote medical care that is less expensive than in-person visits to the healthcare facilities.

For instance, in April 2022, Emmaus Life Sciences, Inc. launched a full-service telehealth solution.  The telehealth program leverages the growth of telemedicine in the U.S. to enable patients and healthcare providers to on-line access to Endari, the prescription-grade L-glutamine oral powder developed by the company for the treatment of sickle cell disease.

Platform Insights

In terms of platform, the market is further segmented into solution and services. The solution segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 61.5% in 2022 and is expected to continue to dominate the market during the forecast period.  The segment growth is driven by the rise in the development of smart devices to provide an improved virtual experience for the day-to-day tasks. The solution segment includes both hardware and software.

Furthermore, smart companies are incorporating artificial intelligence into their product lines to generate an additional revenue stream. With such innovative components and unique advancements in ambient intelligence technology, users give voice instructions for controlling gadgets such as lights, audio systems, air conditioning units, and other digital equipment.

The services segment is anticipated to witness the highest growth rate of 25.5% during the forecast period. The services in the ambient intelligence industry refer to consulting, integration, maintenance, and support services. The demand for ambient intelligence services is driven by a combination of the factors, including the complexity of implementation and the need for ongoing support & maintenance.

Technology Insights

Based on the technology, the global market is sub-segmented into, Bluetooth low energy, RFID, ambient light sensor, software agents, affective computing, biometrics and others. The affective computing segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 20.3% % in 2022 and is expected to continue to dominate the market during the forecast period. With the development of more powerful processors, sensors, and machine learning algorithms, it has become increasingly possible to create systems that can accurately recognize and interpret human emotions.

This has created an opportunity for the integration of affective computing in ambient intelligence. There is growing recognition of the importance of emotional intelligence in various fields, including healthcare, education, and customer services. Affective computing can help to create more empathetic and responsive systems that can better meet the emotional needs of the users. The aim of developing more emotional and adaptable devices, which can better align the personal demands of consumers, is driving segment growth.

On the other hand, the RFID segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR rate of 29.3% during the forecast period. RFID is increasingly being used in supply chain management to track the movement of goods from production to delivery. By integrating RFID into ambient computing systems, businesses can create more efficient and responsive supply chains, thus reducing costs and improving customer satisfaction.

For instance, in October 2022, Wiliot, an Internet of Things (IoT) company, collaborated with Identiv, Inc., a manufacturer of specialty RFID tags, inlays, and labels, to produce an initial batch of 25.0 million units of its IoT pixel labels. Wiliot is pioneering the ambient IoT evolution with a vital advancement in ambient computer technologies provided by its IoT Pixels. The Pixels are stamp-sized computer labels that attach to any goods or packaging and power themselves by generating power from radio signals broadcasted by other IoT systems.

End-use Industry Insights

Based on the end-use industry, the market is segmented into IT and telecommunication, healthcare, retail, residential, manufacturing, automotive, education, and others. The healthcare segment held the largest revenue share of 20.5% in 2022 and is expected to maintain its position during the forecast period. Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) applications, sensors, and ambient assisted living (AAL) systems are gaining popularity worldwide. Rising awareness of health systems and solutions such as electronic medical records and mobile health applications are fueling market growth. According to an MSI International survey conducted in June 2021, 70.0% of Americans prefer remote patient monitoring, and among 70.0% of Americans, nearly 40.0% of Americans refer to its incorporation into medical treatment.

On the other hand, the education segment is anticipated to witness the highest CAGR rate of 28.6% during the forecast period. The increased demand for ambient computing in education is driven by the need for more innovative and effective learning experiences that can enhance students’ academic achievements and increase access to education.
