Technology and the internet both are emerging fields. From big computers to smartphones, then the Internet of Things (IoT). We have already come a long way in the technology run. However, thanks to the ‘need more’ human nature, we are expecting to experience a lot in the upcoming years. Out of all those future advancements, we have gathered some technology trends which we can see this year.

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Robotic Process Automation
  • Edge Computing
  • Quantum Computing
  • Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality
  • Blockchain
  • Internet of Things
  • 5G Network
  • Cyber Security
  • 3D Printing

You must have heard these terms earlier. Rather, some of them have already submerged in our daily lives. Still, they have too much to offer in the coming future for the advantage of individuals and businesses.

1. Artificial Intelligence (AI)

The term is already well-known for easing many business needs. Its ability to perform human tasks with the efficiency of computer processing and machines makes it useful for data interpretation.

AI could be helpful for companies to understand and predict customers’ demands through analyzing their interaction with the business and other trends. Due to its incredible benefits, its market is expected to grow to a $190 billion industry by 2025.

2. Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

RPA is the software technology that allows understanding, building, deploying and managing to mimic human actions working with digital software and platforms. In layman’s language, RPA is a process that automates repetitive tasks done by humans.

Popular applications of RPA include interpreting applications, email automation, and processing transactions. However, the story does not end here. Many pieces of research and experiments are going on to improve RPA processing to offer better automation and a smooth working experience.

3. Edge Computing

While people are still finding ways to optimize their business with the help of cloud computing. Technology has to offer another way of computing, edge computing.

The establishment of edge computing is caused by latency experienced in cloud computing. Edge computing processes the time-driven data which will be used in limited to no connectivity remote areas. Edge computing could be considered mini-data centers.

Though it is much better than cloud computing, this technology is still under the shelter which is expected to come out this year.

4. Quantum Computing

Another type of computing that helps humans solve complex problems is quantum computing. It uses quantum phenomena such as superposition and quantum entanglement. As of now, this way of computing is there in the banking and financial sector to analyze credit risks, fraud detection, and frequency trading.

Quantum computing will allow the processing and storage of data that is not possible to comprehend with the current scope of technology.

5. Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality

Both technologies work together to provide an exceptional experience to the user. Augmented Reality (AR) creates an environment where virtual reality (VR) lets the user be involved in the respective environment.

Currently, AR and VR performing well in the gaming field. Yet, their advent in training, education, marketing and entertainment is expected. Also, their market share is anticipated to grow to $209.22 billion this year.

6. Blockchain

Do you know why blockchain has got this name? And, why is it considered too secure? Blockchain is a digital ledger that once recorded blocks the data, which means you cannot alter the recorded entries. Also, the data gets recorded in the chain which eventually makes it, Blockchain. Thus, its inability to modify recorded data makes it too secure.

This technology has the potential to grow in the future. Even if any business that is built with this technology could grow over $10 billion by 2022.

7. Internet of Things (IoT)

If we look around, we are surrounded by many applications of IoT, such as smartphones, smart TVs, Fitbit, and a lot more. That means we are already in the era where IoT is quite famous and has established its market.

However, there are still a lot of IoT technology updates that could be mind-boggling for individuals and businesses. For instance, the advancement of IoT in the medical sector with the introduction of telemedicine and improvement in wearable technology. Moreover, it is expected to show its footprints in the industrial internet sector.

5G Network

8. 5G Network

Since we are quite comfortable with 3G and 4G networks, the list of technology trends 2022 involves the incorporation of 5G technology to revolutionize daily lives. Its services are expected to rely on VR and AR.

5G will be used for HD cameras to provide better security, traffic management. The retail industry will be benefited as well.

9. Cyber Security

Along with the rise in technology, cybersecurity threats have increased too. Hackers have become more sophisticated than ever and the number of hacking and spamming attacks raised as well. Software developers and engineers are working day and night to deal with the situation.

According to International Data Corporation, the worldwide security expenditure is expected to reach $174.7 billion in 2024.

10. 3D Printing

The technology advancement will help the manufacturing industry to reduce costs and materials used to manufacture almost anything including metal, powder, chocolates, concrete and liquid.

With 3D printing, the manufacturing industry will experience revolutionary change. The production scale could be increased to a level that cannot be achieved with traditional manufacturing practices.


Technology trends in businesses and daily lives are on the level where you can expect their potential advantages shortly. Even most of them are already a part of our lives such as wearable IoT, virtual reality products, AI applications, yet improving them to offer better technology solutions. On the reverse side, technology trends like 5G network and 3D printing are yet to enter the market this year.
