Rising Inclination towards Self-Driving Cars to Augment Growth
A prime factor promoting the growth of the global machine learning as a service market is the increasing popularity and adoption of self-driving cars. This is possible owing to the adoption of artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms. Real-time monitoring of the environment in and around the self-driving car is one of the added benefits that is augmenting the growth of the automotive industry at large.
On the contrary, factors such as stringent regulations on use of artificial intelligence or real-time monitoring imposed by various governments may challenge the growth of this market in the coming years. This, coupled with the lack of skilled professionals for dandling IOT platforms and data monitoring may also restrict growth of this market.
Nevertheless, the increasing adoption of machine learning both as a tool and as a service by the medical and pharmaceutical sector is likely to drive this market as well. Rapidly developing digitalization and functional dynamics is likely to add boost to the growth of this market in the coming years. Wide adoption of artificial intelligence and machine learning for medical and diagnostic purposes are likely to promote this market in terms of revenue generation. Furthermore, new growth opportunities in the global medical sector are further expected to help create lucrative growth opportunities for the market in the coming years.
