5 Biggest Tech Trends For Startups In 2022 & Beyond
#1 – Frequently Growth in AI, Big Data Analytics, and Cloud Computing
Undoubtedly, artificial intelligence has become an essential part of our basic lives. From improvements to customization and understanding & controlling devices to building better models of the environment to automating industry, we see the AI application everywhere as we look towards 2022.
Facts & Factors reports that the worldwide predictive analytics market is growing at a compound average growth rate of 24.5%. It is expected that it will reach over $22.1 billion by the end of 2026.
It is estimated that a huge growth will be seen in cloud computing. BY 2022, the cloud will be more well-established, and more computing workloads will run on the cloud. Gartner predicted that global spending on cloud app development solutions is expected to reach over $482 billion by the end of 2022.
#2 – Internet Security and Privacy Dominate
As the world becomes more digitally connected, an increasing number of personal and business cyber-attacks globally have been seen. In recent years, many companies are now being recognized as vulnerable targets. As remote working is one of the common reasons, businesses are being advised to tighten their cyber security measures.
In 2022, we will notice cyberattacks across industries. Protecting against malware will include trained individuals. It will help them identify and avoid network strikes, hence securing their company’s image.
Applying artificial intelligence will make strong cybersecurity protocols easier and less expensive to deliver more effective results than ever before. Its use can enable cybersecurity to spot risks and learn the cybercriminal’s behaviors, resulting in preventing future threats. It can also help minimize the time it takes cyber security specialists to do their regular tasks.
#3 – The Metaverse Will Shine in 2022
Facebook – parent company Meta – may have delivered the most buzz with its threats into the Metaverse.
Rolf Illenberger, CEO of virtual reality software maker VRdirect, 2022 will be a “race into the metaverse” as large tech companies struggle for slices of an emerging market. Google, Microsoft & Apple may establish their operating systems for the metaverse such as their alternatives for PCs and smartphones.
Companies – building softwares that operate in the metaverse – would have to ensure those programs run perfectly with different operating systems. The crisis is pushing companies toward virtual reality for onboarding and meetings.
#4 – Blockchain Technology Triumph
Blockchain enables companies to monitor a transaction and do business with unverified companies even without the assistance of financial organizations. This new capacity significantly reduces conflicts. It also adds other benefits such as data structure, transparency, security, and decentralization.
Blockchain app development has enjoyed huge adoption and continues to interrupt many industries, from finance, to gaming to healthcare. International Data Corporation predicted that businesses will spend around $6.6 billion on blockchain solutions in 2022. It is expected that this number will reach over $15 billion by the end of 2024. With the new rise of the metaverse, blockchain will become one of the most popular technology trends in 2022.
#5 – The Robotics Sector Will Become More Prevalent
The COVID-19 crisis represents both issues and opportunities for robotics organizations in the logistics industry. Unwanted burdens on supply systems and product failures have featured the requirements for better supply chain efficiency. It’s also become appreciable that robots and automation keep employees socially differentiated yet allow the business to continue operating.
The use of RPA (robotics process automation) helps automotive activities that are operated repeatedly. We expect RPA will grow in 2022 and become a standard technology for startups to stay competitive in the market during a pandemic.
RPA frees employees from tedious, repetitive tasks and allows them to do more exciting work. In recent years, we have seen a rise in nanorobotics, tiny sensors with limited processing power.
The Final Thought!
There’s little doubt that 2022 will see rapid progress in other technologies as the world appears from the COVID-19 pandemic. As a startup owner, you can invest in the above-mentioned emerging technologies trends to become more successful than ever even during this difficult time.
Let’s hope that the coming innovations make the world a better place for both people and businesses!
