A new report by Sujan Sarkar from Writerbuddy.AI analyzed the AI industry's growth from September 2022 to August 2023, covering over 3,000 AI tools. They gathered info from AI tool directories and narrowed it down to the top 50 AI tools, what countries are using AI the most, and a lot more.

AI has been an omnipresent theme over the past year, pushing boundaries and redefining several industries in a short space of time. An astounding number of over 24 billion visits were generated from September 2022 to August 2023 by just the top 50 AI tools, with an average monthly growth of 236.3 million visits. Out of this massive number, ChatGPT alone accounted for 14 billion traffic, covering a massive 60% of the traffic analyzed. This eye-opening statistic sets the tone for what lies ahead as we explore the intricate layers of the AI industry’s digital behavior.

AI industry: Traffic growth over the last 12 months

Over the last 12 months, the AI industry has been one of the most significant tech developments we’ve seen in a long time. During the starting month of our study, September 2022, the tools we analyzed generated 241.8 million visits. 

As you can see in the graph, the total traffic of all 50 tools saw a 10.7x growth rate over the studied period. 

But during the final month, August 2023, these tools generated a staggering 2.8 billion visits.

To put that into perspective, it’s a 2.6 billion traffic increase from the starting month to the ending month of our study. 

This equals an average of 236.3M visit increase per month over the studied 12 months. 

But where did it all start? 

The jump really kicked off last November - when ChatGPT became the fastest-ever platform to reach 1 million users (in just 5 days). 

After the initial boom, the hype kept on climbing all the way until May 2023 when monthly visits peaked at around 4.1 billion. That’s the first time we saw a pullback of 1.2 billion in the traffic of the industry. 

The average traffic throughout the period was 2 billion per month. 

But interestingly, if we only look at the last 6 months, the average traffic was 3.3 billion per month. 

It’s been very rare for an emerging tech trend like AI to generate this much interest. 

And even after the pullback and decline of 1.2 billion visits, interest is still huge - with the total industry interest hovering at around 10.7x growth from the previous year. 

To put this into perspective, VCs and investors could have picked almost any of the larger horses in the AI race and safely made a 3-10x, in just one year (assuming interest reflects in finances and user base).
