AI Camera Market Forecast and Trends


Growth Drivers 


Increase in focus of Smartphone and camera manufacture to provide a camera with better quality

Smartphones enabled with AI technology can recognise images. When taking a picture, the phone identifies the object being photographed. It also applies the correction filter which results in better quality images. The AI also compensates for low-resolution images. If the picture being viewed on the device is of a lower resolution, the AI-vision engine predicts the pixels which are missing. This allows a better quality full-display image. Due to these features, smartphone manufactures are focusing to offer AI-based smartphones. The companies are including AI features such as user authentication, emotion recognition, and device management. These AI features helps to understand user behaviors. The top smartphone providers such as Apple, Samsung, and Huawei have introduced smartphones with powerful AI chips that can perform up to 5 trillion operations per second and use significantly less power to complete tasks. In addition, AI featured phones provides to improve photo quality by using AI recognition feature.




High cost of AI Camera 

Artificial intelligence encompasses several different approaches to solving problems. It includes computer vision, object detection, natural language processing, and other types of artificial intelligence help businesses and individuals automate processes, improve accuracy, and work more efficiently. Artificial intelligence In this Era of technologies AI is one of the fastest-growing technology. AI is artificial intelligence in a camera which is software used in smartphones or cameras for scene recognition. The cost of an AI camera includes the cost to require an AI platform, AI integration into the camera, and services required to support an AI platform. In addition, for AI platform development, a skilled workforce is required. This increases the cost of an AI camera.


Impact of COVID-19 in industry


The global economy and humanity have been pushed into a crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the high infection rate and adverse impact on public health systems, various governments have enforced nationwide lockdowns significantly impacting manufacturing supply chains, trade, and related services.
