SenseTime At A Glance

SenseTime is Asia's largest AI company (by revenue in 2020). It serves over 2,400 customers, including half of the Fortune 500 list. Here are a few business highlights:

  • SenseTime markets its universal AI infrastructure across several industries, which allows it to develop cross-functional technological expertise.
  • The company's revenue and gross profit margin have been growing, with the latter being among the lowest in the industry.
  • The computer vision software industry is growing at a nearly 40% CAGR; with multiple patents, SenseTime remains highly competitive.
  • Tech upgrades of China's major cities boost SenseTime's revenue, but the company should keep entering other application fields to keep growing.
