ARC Advisory Group has been tracking the automation market for over 30 years with high-quality quantitative and qualitative primary research. For several years, we have been researching the artificial intelligence (AI) market in manufacturing.

This survey is the 2021 edition and builds on surveys we have done in the past.  We aim to refine some of our 2020 findings.  These include challenges, applications, targets, and key players.  In addition, we open a new field of research for our AI agenda:  AI lifecycle from proof of concept to lifecycle management.

Who Should Take this Survey?

Anyone involved or interested in AI applications should be taking this survey.  The survey splits between users, machine builders and integrators, and automation suppliers, with an individual set of question.

Privacy and Confidentiality

This survey requests information about your own experiences and observations. ARC will keep all individual responses confidential, and only aggregate information will be used in any reports.

Benefits of Participating

Participants will receive the key survey results for free, after the survey is completed. Also, all participants can download last year's AI survey results at the end.
