Global AI in Accounting Market to Reach $14.05 Billion by 2027

A report published by Research and Markets finds that the global Artificial Intelligence in Accounting market will grow from $454.92 million in 2018 to $14.05 billion by 2027 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 46.4 percent in that forecast period. The report description cites "rising requirement of automation in mundane tasks and requirement for advanced decision making," as a market driver, but identifies a "lack of skill sets," as an impediment to growth. An excerpt from the report description outlines the uses of AI in accounting:

Artificial Intelligence in Accounting is used to pull accurate outcome[s] from a large amount of data without human intervention. It is much more beneficial for data-driven industries, such as accounting. It is also used for fraud detection.
