The year is 2023 and the world is a very different place. The global economy has been steadily recovering from the 2020s recession. Unemployment rates are at record lows, and companies are hiring more workers than ever before. In spite of this positive economic outlook, there is still plenty of uncertainty ahead as we enter a new decade full of opportunity but also challenges. Say’s David Woroboff, here are some major trends that represent how businesses will change in the coming years:
Robotics As A Service
- Robotics As A Service (RaaS) is a business model where customers rent robots instead of buying them. This method is ideal for companies that don’t have the money to buy or store robots and want to add automation to their operations but don’t have the space for it.
- RaaS is also beneficial because it allows businesses to try out different types of robotic solutions before committing themselves to one particular solution, which means they can experiment with robotics without making any big investments.
Smart clothing is the new frontier for wearable tech companies. Smart clothing is used to monitor health, fitness, and wellness. It can be used in sports, fitness, and medical applications.
Blockchain is a secure, transparent and immutable database that can be used to store any form of value such as money, data or property. It’s been called “the next internet” because it has the potential to change the way we do business. In fact, experts say blockchain will have an even bigger impact on society than the internet has had since its creation in 1991.
A global movement is happening right now: people across industries are using blockchain technology to build new systems that allow them to exchange value more efficiently and securely than ever before—and they’re finding out how much fun it is along the way!
AI will continue to be a major trend in the world of marketing. AI has so much potential for businesses when it comes to improving customer service, providing better product recommendations, and increasing efficiency. Although AI may not be able to fully replace humans just yet (AI-enabled machines still lack some of the most important skills), they can certainly help improve your business operations.
As more companies adopt AI technology into their workflows, it will become increasingly important for marketers to understand how they can use this technology as well. We recommend reading up on machine learning if you’d like a deeper understanding of how this technology works.
Be on the lookout for these trends
- Open-source software
- Artificial intelligence (AI)
- Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR)
While there are many other trends that will affect startups in the next few years, these four are the most promising and have the potential to change the way we do business. They can also help startup founders save time and money by finding solutions that would normally take months or years to develop.
