Tech and its Future in 2022



Despite the chaos that has been caused by the coronavirus pandemic, 2022 looks to be a bright year for innovation and new technology. The market disruptions and popular adoption of hybrid work models may have even assisted the process.


Statista predicts that global spending on digital transformation will jump by approximately 20%, to $1.8 trillion in 2022.


Over the course of the next year, there are many key areas in tech to watch out for, including the likes of digital finance, automation and the integration of EV charging networks.


As innovation in the cryptocurrency and central bank-backed digital currency (CBDCs) space continues to grow, international payments and financial inclusion will improve. According to Moody’s Investors Service, the number of nations developing CBDCs has sharply risen, as consumers have resorted to making more and more digital transactions over the pandemic.


Due to government incentivisation and subsidies, in an effort to tackle the climate crisis, the popularity of electric vehicles (EVs) has boomed and will likely continue to do so in 2022. Tesla, the world’s largest EV manufacturer, is striving to develop its supercharger network as EVs become more mainstream. Moreover, UK-based Juniper Research have stated that ‘End users will gain significantly… they will have better, more comprehensive charging network options, making EV ownership more viable’. They added that ‘more EV charging networks will enable interoperability and work to develop common ways to access and pay. Vehicle manufacturers will offer aggregator apps that enable easier charging options.’


With all this in mind, technology and its future in 2022 looks to be even more so exciting.
