The artificial intelligence (AI) market is expected to grow twentyfold. In fact, according to Statista in March of 2023, the market is expected to grow from about $100 billion, to more than $2 trillion by the time 2030 rolls around. AI has already begun to impact supply chains, law enforcement, medical care, finance, information technology, data security, education, transportation, governments and more.

Even MIT Technology Review said, “Artificial intelligence is changing the world and doing it at breakneck speed…. The experts go on to predict a 50 percent chance that AI will be better than humans at more or less everything in about 45 years.” Yet, this is only the start – and its potential impact on your portfolio could be significant. In fact, here are three top AI ETFs that could rocket with AI growth.

One of the top ETFs to consider is the Global X Robotics & Artificial Intelligence ETF (NASDAQ:BOTZ). With an expense ratio of 0.69%, this ETF invests in companies that will benefit from the addition of artificial intelligence, as well as those involved with autonomous vehicles, industrial robotics and non-industrial robotics. Its top holdings include Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ:ISRG), NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA), SMC Corporation (OTCMKTS:SMCAY), iRobot Corporation (NASDAQ:IRBT), Dynatrace, Inc. (NYSE:DT), and Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ:CGNX). Since the year began, shares of the BOTZ ETF ran from about $20.65 to $25.02 so far. By year-end, I’d like to see it closer to $35.
