Tech Trends Set to Dominate 2022

As 2021 comes to a close, investors are already looking forward to 2022 and, more importantly, which tech trends are set to govern the coming year. By doing so, they can predict which industries and sectors are likely to experience the greatest growth and tap into a growing market ahead of time. Continue reading to find out which tech trends are set to dominate 2022.



E-sports

As a growing number of industries and sectors continue to go digital, sport is just one of the latest to get on board. Despite drawing disapproval from critics and fans alike in recent years, e-sports has evolved into a multi-billion-dollar industry with the potential to outperform the ways in which we view and interact with sports on a daily basis in the coming years. As 2022 edges closer, it is expected to become a viable investment option not only for Fortune 500 companies but also for non-endemic businesses. For example, in Germany, where the emergence of e-sports was met with widespread criticism, 26 out of 36 professional clubs now participate in the Virtual Bundesliga.

Artificial intelligence

In recent years, artificial intelligence may have existed by simmering away in the background, but it has recently exploded into the mainstream. As a result, algorithms based on machine learning are now commonplace and a growing number of global investors are getting involved. This includes such well known entrepreneurs and investors as Tej Kohli, Marc Andreessen, and Eric Schmidt (News - Alert). As 2022 nears, the technological marvel that is AI, Edge is set to dominate the airwaves in the next 12 months. It is, in the simplest of terms, the process of machine learning on local networks as opposed to external clouds. Through widespread adoption, this can lead to greater safety and security of personal data in the long run.

Sustainability

As sustainability continues to permeate a growing number of industries and sectors, technology is just one of the latest to take a responsible approach. This trend may have existed for decades but 2021 has seen significant growth when it comes to promoting brand value on a global scale. With more businesses than ever before focusing on sustainability from the very onset, a company’s attitude towards climate change, resource conversation, diversity, and even social inequality is now the question on consumers’ minds as they shop around for goods and services both online as well as in-person. By failing to recognize the importance of sustainability, brands risk not only losing customers but also key investment opportunities.

Cybersecurity

As our lives become more digitized than ever before, cybersecurity is more important than ever before. This trend has largely been driven by a global shift towards flexible working practices which is set to continue as we enter into the new year and beyond.

If you are considering investing in tech in 2022, it may benefit you to familiarize yourself with a number of emerging trends including e-sports, artificial intelligence, sustainability, and cybersecurity. By doing so, you can stay ahead of the curve and stand out from the crowd.
