In the dataset, nearly four out of five respondents (78.9%) anticipate a substantial or slight increase in the importance and usage of AI.

Only a small fraction (4%) predict a decrease, underscoring a strong consensus toward AI’s expanding role.

It’s clear that AI’s influence is not just present but growing, not just tangibly but in the eyes of our respondents.

The industry lens

Differences stand out when we look at the dataset across industries. Notably, 52.7% in Construction predict a substantial increase in AI usage compared to the overall 38.2%. This suggests a significant shift toward more technologically integrated operations.

IT / Technology / SaaS (83.3% vs. 78.9% overall) and Manufacturing (83.2%) see AI increasing over the next few years as well. This aligns with their core operations which naturally integrate newer technologies faster.

At the other end, Healthcare stands out with 6.9% anticipating a slight decrease, possibly reflecting concerns around AI’s implications in sensitive areas such as patient care.
