Published Date : Dec 2020 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : ICT

The global Data Annotation Tools market size is expected to be worth around US$ 2.58 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Data Annotation Tools market size was valued at US$ 390.2 million in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 26.10% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.

Growth Factors

The advent of big data is expected to drive the artificial intelligence market as a large volume of information is required to be recorded, stored, and analyzed.

Adoption of artificial intelligence is expected to significantly boost the demand for data annotation tools as the annotated data acts as a catalyzer to train AI models and machine learning tools and systems in critical areas, such as speech recognition and image recognition. These tools offer AI its strength by directly providing information that is relevant to determining future outcomes and decision-making.

Growing trend of manufacturing autonomous vehicles in the automotive industry is attracting larger investments in the development of these vehicles. An autonomous vehicle is a combination of various sensors and networking systems that assist the computer in driving the vehicle. The annotated data allows autonomous vehicle’s computer models to recognize and learn from it. Several technology providers such as Google Inc.; Tesla Motors; Apple Inc.; and Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. have also entered the autonomous vehicle market. Rising investments in the self-driving cars market are expected to drive the demand for data annotation tools.

Rising innovations in the retail segment, specifically in improving the e-commerce sector, using the data annotation tools is expected to drive the data annotation tools market over the forecast period. For instance, in 2019, Walmart Labs acquired Dataturks, an India-based start-up that offers tools for image and text by using machine learning. The acquisition helped Walmart to further drive innovations in the catalogue quality and other aspects of Walmart merchandising platform.

Report Highlights

Based on type, the global data annotation tools market is segmented into text, image/video, and audio. In 2019, the text annotation tool segment accounted for the largest market share and is expected to expand at a promising pace over the forecast period. This is attributed to rising applications in e-commerce and clinical research. The audio segment is expected to witness moderate growth in the years to come.

The image/video annotation tool segment is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period. Some of the major applications of image annotation tools are in the medical industry, particularly in the field of medical imaging. For example, in 2017, the total investment in startups developing machine learning solutions and tools using medical images was more than USD 200 million. 

the manual segment accounted for the largest market share. Manual data annotation is a process of labeling or annotating any data by humans. The approach is popular owing to its benefits such as accuracy, high level of integrity, need for minimal administration of data annotation efforts, and a higher chance of discovering intriguing insights pertaining to the data as compared to automatic annotation tools, which can be later integrated into an algorithm. However, as manual annotation tools can be expensive and time -consuming, labeled data gathered through crowdsourcing activities is used for a variety of applications.

The automatic segment is expected to witness promising growth over the forecast period. AI is becoming vital to the data annotation tools industry as the technology allows the extraction of high-level and complex abstractions from the datasets using a hierarchical learning process. Need for mining and extracting meaningful patterns from voluminous data is fueling the growth of AI, which is expected to further drive the demand for automatic annotation tools. The semi-supervised tools can be used to identify specific labeled data or classify the unlabeled data. Limited use of this annotation tool type will contribute to the moderate growth of the segment.

The healthcare segment is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. AI is widely adopted in the healthcare sector for various applications such as treatment prediction, diagnostic automation, drug development, and gene sequencing. The datasets in healthcare are required to be trained with machine learning algorithms. 

The automotive segment is anticipated to witness steady growth over the forecast period as data annotation tools are gaining wide acceptance in self-driving vehicles. Increasing R&D spending on the improvement of image annotation for the developments in the field of self-driving vehicles is boosting the growth of the market. For instance, in 2018, the BMW Group invested the largest share of its revenue in the research and development activities. The company is mainly focusing on the development of autonomous and electric vehicles.

North America accounted for the dominant share in the market in 2019. This is due to rapid product and geographic expansion strategy undertaken by vendors in order to gain an edge in the market. Europe is expected to witness steady growth over the forecast period. Rising focus on image annotation is anticipated to enhance the operations of retail and automotive verticals in Europe.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to register the highest CAGR over the forecast period. Emerging economies in Asia Pacific hold significant potential for the widespread adoption of data annotation tools, particularly in the healthcare and financial services verticals. The positive growth of the healthcare industry in Asia Pacific is marked by increasing adoption of technology and innovative healthcare access programs. These factors are anticipated to boost the demand for image annotation tools in this region in the near future.
