AI Market Overview
The AI market in Japan is expected to reach approximately 2 trillion JPY*1 in the fiscal year 2025. In recent years, the number of companies shifting from PoC (Proof of Concept) to full-scale implementation. This trend has been increasing and resulting in significant growth in the overall market. Due to the fact that companies and municipalities are undergoing digital transformation, they consider implementation of AI to improve productivity and efficiency, impacting the AI market. On the other hand, the challenges of implementing AI include lack of understanding of AI, uncertainty about its effectiveness, high-cost, lack of human resources with AI knowledge, and lack of AI services and products that non-developers can use easily.*2
Also, there are more barriers when users implement AI. Typically, when users want to implement AI, it requires the full support of AI vendors and developers in many processes such as planning for AI, data collection, preparation, R&D, AI-based learning, evaluation, and system integration. Users need to complete all steps and communicate with AI vendors and developers to let them know problems or know-how at work, which takes a long time to finish implementing AI.
While society faces a decline in the working population, the utilization of AI in various companies and municipalities is inevitable. Therefore, there is a demand for services that minimize the barriers to adoption so that even non-developers can easily use AI.
