The AI Infrastructure Market (henceforth referred to as the market studied) was valued at USD 38.34 billion in 2021, and it is expected to reach USD 120.69 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 20.59% during the period of 2022-2027 (henceforth referred to as the forecast period). Increasing demand for AI hardware in high-performance computing data centers and rising application of machine learning and deep learning technologies are expected to drive the growth of the market.

Key Highlights
Enterprises increasingly recognize the value associated with the incorporation of artificial intelligence (AI) into their business processes, as they improve operational efficiency and reduce cost through automation of process flows. Thus, companies have been using autonomous processes to improve operations and change the face of customer service (for example, through AI-powered chatbots) while spurring innovation to new heights. AI is a set of algorithms that can solve a specific set of problems and works best with a significant volume of high-quality Big Data. Chatbots can cut down the operational costs for businesses by up to 30%.
Furthermore, as the focus of IT strategy moves from data management to intelligent action, enterprises have been increasingly recognizing the role of AI to support humans in problem-solving, decision making, and creative endeavors. Enterprises recognize that implementing and using AI is critical for their continued growth in the competitive environment with many potential opportunities, such as new opportunities using AI to drive innovation, make connections, identify, and foster new developments.
To take advantage of the increasing AI opportunities, one of the first considerations for any organization is to have a suitable infrastructure to support the AI developments. Moreover, AI solutions frequently demand new hardware and software integration to function. For instance, for collation and annotation of data source, scalable processing, or creating and fine-tuning models as new data become available requires AI solutions, such as repurposing existing hardware and buying a one-off AI solution, building a broader platform to support multiple AI solution, and outsourcing AI solution delivery. Thus, infrastructure plays a vital role in the growth of the AI landscape.
Different companies have been offering AI infrastructure-related solutions in the market studied that have been enabling the company to leverage their AI infrastructure. For instance, in February 2022, Spell, the leader in operationalizing AI for natural language processing (NLP), machine vision, and speech recognition applications, and Graphcore, maker of the Intelligence Processing Unit (IPU) for next-generation AI compute, have announced a partnership to deliver the next generation of AI infrastructure. The new solution integrates Graphcore’s IPU-POD scale-out systems with Spell’s eponymous hardware-agnostic MLOps software platform for deep learning (DLOps) to make advanced AI development faster, easier, and less expensive.
In August 2021, Dell Technologies announced the certification of Dell EMC VxRail for the newly available NVIDIA AI Enterprise software suite. NVIDIA AI Enterprise is an end-to-end, cloud-native suite of AI and data analytics software, optimized, certified, and supported by NVIDIA to run on VMware vSphere with NVIDIA-Certified Systems. It includes key enabling technologies from NVIDIA for rapid deployment, management, and scaling of AI workloads in the modern hybrid cloud.
Further, the COVID-19 pandemic caused many organizations to accelerate their migrations to public cloud solutions since cloud service elasticity can meet unexpected spikes in service demand. Migrations to the cloud helped companies reinvent the way they conduct their businesses in the time of COVID-19. The need for AI services has grown, and many cloud providers offer AIaaS and MLaaS. As a result, the global cloud market recorded significant growth in the healthcare segment in 2020. AI and ML technology is being used considerably to fight COVID-19. For instance, several researchers are using machine learning to create a smart monitoring system that tracks and detects suspected COVID-19 infected persons. One of the proposed systems is a new framework integrating machine learning, cloud, fog, and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to create a COVID-19 disease monitoring and prognosis system.

Key Market Trends

Hybrid Deployment is Expected to Hold a Major Market Share

The rising transition of companies providing AI solutions from SMEs to large enterprises is bolstering the demand for on-premise solutions that enable scalability, both vertically and horizontally. This factor has created a significant demand for hybrid integration solutions (that comprise a mix of on-premise applications and cloud-based services) among enterprises. ?
The main advantage of using the hybrid model for AI solutions is that organizations can deploy solutions dependent on the degree of scalability they require for particular operations or applications. ?According to the Flexera 2020 State of the Cloud Survey Report, 93% of enterprises have a multi-cloud strategy, and 87% of the enterprises with a hybrid strategy, while organizations with a strategy of multiple public clouds or multiple private clouds grew slightly by 6%.
Some of the prominent vendors in the market according to Pure storage are Amazon, IBM, Google, and Microsoft as its public cloud can be easily integrated to as hybrid cloud and multi-cloud according to the data gathered to form a survey of more than 500 IT professional. Similarly, with such growing demand, the company has announced the number of partners in their hybrid cloud environment, and IBM and Amazon stand at a higher position as of May 2021 with 65 and 63 partners, respectively. This is a solid indication of hybrid cloud adoption in the market.
It is also possible to create a data-centric IT architecture for AI, which further means modernizing IT environments with hybrid multi-cloud. The importance of hybrid multi-cloud in creating an AI roadmap is the important aspect enterprises consider while building their hybrid multi-cloud. Moreover, enterprises should integrate their public and private clouds and legacy data centers into their hybrid multi-cloud framework. An integrated hybrid multi-cloud enables a unified IA, which also improves the portability and interoperability of both applications and data. Hybrid multi-cloud also solves the issues of security, compliance, and latency. Besides these factors, enterprises also have to be aware of certain imperatives of developing an AI strategy.
Businesses are also designing a multi-pronged strategy for their hybrid multi-cloud. As a part of this step, they should identify cloud platforms with embedded AI capabilities and plan continuous training for their AI and hybrid multi-cloud teams to ensure success. As an entity with data authority on hybrid cloud, NetApp AI solutions remove bottlenecks at the edge, core, and cloud to enable more efficient data collection, accelerated AI workloads, and smoother cloud integration, helping the hybrid cloud deployment to grow. For instance, in May 2021, Hewlett Packard Enterprise announced that Carestream Health, a global provider of medical imaging systems, has selected HPE GreenLake to transform the healthcare platform using a hybrid cloud AI platform. Carestream will change X-ray systems across the globe using HPE GreenLake for ML Ops powered by HPE Ezmeral.

Asia Pacific is Expected to Register the Fastest Growth During the Forecast Period

It is anticipated that AI research in China to accelerate as more major Chinese AI companies embrace open-sourcing, clearing the path for further innovation. Engineers can focus on the high-level structure of their model without going into the details of underlying algorithms with the help of a pre-built and optimized framework. Meanwhile, the government is speeding up the construction of "new infrastructure"projects, like 5G networks and data centers, bolstering information services for the expanding market. Soon after, the Chinese government announced the establishment of the Next Generation Artificial Intelligence Development Plan, which promises policy support, central coordination, and investments totaling more than USD 150 billion by 2030. By the end of this decade, China’s AI business is expected to produce USD 160 billion in yearly revenues, with allied industries generating USD 1.6 trillion in annual sales.
China’s digital behemoths have been encouraged by the government to develop artificial intelligence. More relationships with industry incumbents will be catalyzed by libraries, platforms, and frameworks that will enable small and medium businesses to use artificial intelligence at a lower price. It also has the added benefit of ensuring that each of those ecosystems develops a more equitable collection of complementors, allowing the digital behemoths to take a larger portion of the value that artificial intelligence generates and creates.
Further, India is one of the world’s fastest-growing economies, with a huge interest in AI’s worldwide development. The Indian government recognizes the potential and is taking all necessary steps to steer the country and place it among the leaders in AI. Despite the favorable ecosystem, there are considerable obstacles that the government must overcome to achieve rapid progress in AI. India, for example, lacks the infrastructure to support large-scale experimental testbeds and a data ecosystem that allows intelligent data to be accessed.
According to a report by the Center for Security and Emerging Technologies, India is well-positioned to become a big player and an important partner in the AI ecosystem (CSET). According to research published by a US think tank, India’s AI policy is on the right track. Six more Indian technology start-ups have joined the Unicorn club. To put things into context, India only produced seven unicorns in 2020 and six in 2019. Experts believe that by 2025, India will have more than 150 unicorns.
Many AI firms in India rely on cloud infrastructure due to a lack of infrastructure. However, cloud usage in India is still in its infancy. India barely spent 1.6% of its GDP on IT, which is less than half of the global average. India barely spent 6% of its IT budget on cloud computing, lagging the global average of 7.9%, as stated by CSET Report.
The United Kingdom and India struck a USD 1.4 billion trade deal in May 2021, with the promise of thousands of employment on both sides and the possibility of a future free trade agreement. The package comprises a USD 338.56 million investment by the Serum Institute of India in their vaccine business in the United Kingdom, which will assist research, clinical trials, production, and export of artificial intelligence-based drones (AI).
