Ameco Research: Spending on AI for Marketing Expected to Reach $137B by 2032
With demand fueled by a need for data-driven decision-making and personalized customer experiences, spending on AI solutions for marketing will skyrocket from around $14 billion in 2022 to $137 billion by 2032, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 26%, according to a new forecast by Ameco Research.
Technologies included in the research firm’s new report include machine learning, natural language processing, and other AI-based approaches to analyzing data and enhancing marketing strategies. AI solutions are becoming increasingly cost-effective, making them a more attractive option for marketers.
North America currently dominates the market, thanks to its technological innovation, digital infrastructure, and high business adoption rate, according to Ameco’s analysis.
Among the potential factors that might slow adoption of AI are regulatory hurdles that could make it difficult for marketers to deploy new tools. Also, some AI technology can be complex and difficult to understand, which also could slow the rate of adoption.
Another challenge is that AI-powered tools sometimes require customization to meet the specific needs of individual marketers.
