2020 predictions for UK Technology, Media and Telecommunications
What does the future hold for technology, media, and telecommunications?
Every year, Deloitte researches and reviews the latest developments in technology, media, and telecommunications and here we present our 2020 TMT Predictions ‒ looking around the corner to help you see what’s coming, expect the unexpected, and keep your business moving forward.
If there are any common themes through our six predictions, these might be mobility, connectivity and media.
Cycling offers a solution to many urban and environmental issues caused by car usage. In particular, better batteries are making electric bikes more popular, except in the UK, and we examine why. Robots too are getting more mobile, and we look at how these could change business, particularly in the UK, where they’ve historically been scarce. Robots are just one advance made possible by the introduction of industrial-grade 5G networks, and we consider the wide-ranging changes that become possible when wireless networks get as good as wired ones.
Smartphone adoption has now matured to the point of reaching a plateau, but that’s just the start of their further rise as a platform: advertising, apps and accessories on/for smartphones are set to match the market value of global phone sales themselves. And although podcasting might be a less lucrative application in the UK than globally, we consider how to realise its wider potential. Lastly, we find out how TV advertisers might reconnect with younger viewers, through video on demand funded by advertising.
