The Japan Artificial Intelligence Market Size is expected to reach USD 27.12 billion by 2032, at a CAGR of 21.43% during the forecast period 2022 to 2032.


Market Overview

Japan has shifted to artificial intelligence (AI) as a solution to its aging population and reduced workforce. Interaction with foreign startups and SMEs is increasing as a result of collaborative innovation development, generating new possibilities for Swiss companies. For Swiss businesses to learn about opportunities in Japan, the Swiss Business Hub Japan created an AI Industry Report.


The application of artificial intelligence (AI) is a technological innovation that has been growing more and more significant in industrialized nations. This trend is evident in global AI revenues, which are expected to rise dramatically in future years. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a technology that processes data using machine intelligence and human-thinking abilities to formulate estimations, suggestions, and alternate choices.


Many people in Japan anticipate that artificial intelligence will be critical for next-generation growth and development. AI is one of the key components that the Japanese government believes will contribute to "Society 5.0," a future society in which cyberspace and physical space are more closely connected. The popularity pertaining to AI has resulted in increased research endeavors among both institutions and individual businesses. Various Japanese business enterprises, such as SoftBank and Toyota, are seeking third-party collaborators to help them achieve their goals.


In comparison to competitors such as IBM, which has heavily endorsed its AI-based Watson system for a variety of services, Japan has a poor marketing approach. In Japan, deep learning is still not widely used in artificial intelligence. To create driverless cars, Japan's automotive industry must utilize deep learning solutions. Recently, it has become apparent that automakers like Toyota and Honda lack the specialized personnel needed to create the technological infrastructure required for self-driving vehicles. The opportunities for Japan in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) are further highlighted by such challenges.

Driving Factors

Japan's AI industry has traditionally concentrated on robotics as a distinct domain of artificial intelligence, with companies developing AI, particularly in the domains of technology for healthcare and industrial applications. Artificial Intelligence, or AI, is a modern technology that is able to analyze multiple pieces of information and generate predicted outcomes, suggested changes, and recommendations employing algorithms and human cognitive abilities. Increased corporate R&D spending, a rise in the variety of collaborative ventures among large-scale businesses and new startups, and an acceptance by major Japanese corporations that open innovation is critical to maintaining their worldwide competitiveness have resulted in numerous possibilities for overseas entrepreneurs and small and medium-sized enterprises in Japan at the moment.


Artificial intelligence is expected to grow at an exponential rate in Japan, with AI robots performing half of the workforce by 2032. While the robotics sector of the AI market in Japan has received the majority of attention, foreign-owned companies have focused more on developing software, which presents a business opportunity for foreign enterprises that want to penetrate the Japanese AI market.


The demand for large-scale initiatives in the AI market in Japan has also increased as a result of the development of smart cities. Smart Cities are being developed in response to rising environmental issues and the demand for community-based energy administration alternatives. For example, Toyota's Woven City, which will be built at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan, is an upcoming Smart City project.


The AI market in Japan is leading the advancements in the development of hardware, including the manufacture of robots and motor vehicles. Additionally, there is currently an increasing shift toward open-sourcing software systems because of multi-party partnerships which can research and employ AI more effectively compared to operating independently. Foreign nations and Japanese artificial intelligence (AI) businesses will have more opportunities to collaborate in areas such as autonomous driving technology, digital marketing, database services, integrity, and automatic recognition of images.
