The increase in concern among all the major business organizations to analyze a large volume of data to estimate the risk associated with any strategic initiative is further instrumental in accelerating the industry growth. The necessity for industries, such as healthcare, retail, and financial institutions, to analyze large volumes of data optimally on a real-time basis, is presumed to impact the industry favorably. Technological proliferation is leading to the adoption of innovative techniques, such as machine learning and automated reasoning, in dispensing systems.

Cognitive computing is a technology platform based on the scientific premises of signal processing and artificial intelligence. Natural Language Processing (NLP) is the most popular technology utilized owing to its inherent capacity to process natural language interactions. The extended usage of automated reasoning, big data, and machine learning technology, along with artificial intelligence and probabilistic logic, has paved the way for the more remarkable development of data science. The evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT) has also accelerated the growth momentum of the market with its diverse applications in developing interactive software platforms.

Data analytics has become ubiquitous and will remain pivotal in technology innovation and inventive approaches. However, the data analytics industry is vulnerable to constantly rising cyber security threats. An uptick in cloud services and mobile communications has provided a new target for cybercriminals. International Cyber Security Protection Alliance (ICSPA) facilitates channel funding, expertise, and assistance directly to restore law enforcement against cybercrime in domestic and international markets. Industry participants are likely to emphasize advancements in data analytics to sift through network information to anticipate security incidences.

Technology Insights

The natural language processing segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 42% in 2021. The natural language processing segment is expected to account for a significant global share during the forecast period. In line with the prevailing trends, the emergence of NLP has helped cognitive technology propel IT infrastructure globally. Moreover, the surging demand for smart assistants, such as Siri and Alexa, as well as the use of predictive text, has augmented the footprint of cognitive computing solutions.

Machine learning technology is anticipated to foster the growth of the cognitive computing market, mainly due to the soaring demand to facilitate interaction with humans. Cognitive computing technology platforms are likely to exhibit traction for machine learning for adaptive and interactive learning. Industry players expect machine learning and NLP would be sought for better translation and interpretation tools. Moreover, stakeholders would also explore opportunities to spot business opportunities and assess emerging patterns.

Application Insights

The BFSI segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 24% in 2021. The adoption of cognitive computing solutions is phenomenal in the BFSI domain. The BFSI application segment was valued at over USD 6.38 billion in 2021 and is presumed to grow at a CAGR of over 28.9% from 2022 to 2030. The adoption of cognitive solutions entails effective and efficient data analytics capabilities customized to the requirement of the business organization.

The healthcare segment is also expected to exhibit a decent CAGR of over 26.5% during the forecast period. Cognitive solutions enable medical practitioners to emphasize patient treatment by reducing the requisite paperwork. Cognitive computing systems will continue to receive impetus to boost human diagnosis and foster decision-making with a human touch. With the assessment and collation of data from medical journals, medical reports, and diagnostic tools, the system will remain invaluable in rendering a data-powered treatment recommendation.

Deployment Insights

The cloud segment was valued at over USD 18.3 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 28.0% over the forecast period. The recent development of data storage facilities, such as integrated cloud storage facilities, and the evolvement of customized cloud solutions, such as private and public clouds, have strengthened market growth. Besides, the prevalence of an exponential amount of data has prompted enterprises and organizations to count on cloud solutions. The adoption of cloud solutions could provide opportunities galore for stakeholders to reduce the cost of cognitive computing.
