2020 raised a lot of eyebrows, right? We witnessed the biggest pandemic in history which went on to precede a global shutdown that many would argue is of biblical proportions. Whatever the case, the economy took a major hit resulting in trillions of dollars in corporate bailouts and government sponsored small business loans. All the while, seemingly having no long-lasting effect on the stock market. The DOW JONES, S&P500 and NASDAQ took tremendous dives that weren’t seen since the great depression of 1929.
While some considered it a sign of end times, the markets shortly made a remarkable feat going on to make new all-time highs the very same year. It would all but seem to be a left hook to compliment the right as the overall world temperament appears to be staggered by the last two years.
More concern now being placed on preventing or curing serious diseases such as the COVID-19 virus, while planning for a brighter future in technology and finance. Cryptocurrencies have gone on to be solidified as a digital asset and the blockchain has found its way into corporate American SOP’s. With all of these changes in today’s ecosystem and the way we experience life comes a need to evolve in order to survive. In this article we cover three technologies that we believe a lot more people will need in order to survive day-to-day life going into 2030.
1. INDOOR AIR QUALITY IMPROVEMENT SYSTEMS
According to an Our World in Data report, which can be read by clicking the linked text, air pollution is one of the world’s largest health and environmental problems. It accounts for some five million or 9% of global deaths each year. They also suggest that air pollution is prominent in low-to-middle income countries and that the decrease in deaths over the years is largely due to industries that tackle indoor pollution.
Indoor pollution which results from moisture build up, use of chemical products, cigarette smoke and dust, among many other things, often causes an increase in the presence of bacteria. Now with the recent Pandemic, air quality has become more than a luxury, but an everyday commodity.
Indoor air quality systems alone are projected to be a $5 billion dollar market. Indoor air quality systems that focus on providing a cleaner indoor environment while also reducing Carbon footprint can not only save millions of lives, but also generate a lot of money.
2. CONSUMER GRADE CYBERSECURITY / PRIVACY SYSTEMS
Today, nearly half the world performs tasks that require access to the internet. Unlike twenty years ago when professionals still had file cabinets in every room of their office site, the information highway stores over 90% of the world’s data. Data is one of the fastest growing markets in the world and there is no real way to put an exact number on how much data is stored annually through data collection companies.
Popular tech giants like search engine Google, and social media platform Facebook can give us a pretty good idea of how much data a company can store on its’ users. When asked how much data they had collected the reply was astonishing. Facebook has collected over 4 petabytes of data, Google has an even more massive 15 exabytes. That’s one TRILLION megabytes!
Not only is data collection a big business, but the need for advanced cybersecurity systems is becoming more prominent as small consumers can now store financial assets in digital wallets. All of this creates the need for the average consumer, turned modern day independent business mogul, to experience the same quality of security that bigger companies have the luxury to afford.
3. BLOCKCHAIN DEDICATED SERVERS
The rise of the internet has brought about a new way of storing and transporting information. What might have taken truckloads carrying some hundreds or thousands of paperwork can now be done at the click of a button. As the usage of the internet increased, the need to have dedicated machines that were available online 24/7 rose in demand.
When you visit a website, it sends a request to the server where the data is located to retrieve the data so that it can be shown on your device. Special servers that are Dedicated specifically to accepting requests from external sources must be used as they offer performance and runtime unrivaled by at home machines or personal devices. There’s also another form of data storage called Shared server hosting, which is similar except that it’s designed to accept requests for multiple task, often times from many different administrators, which decreases overall performance significantly.
With the rise of the blockchain came a new form of peer-to-peer networking where data is stored on multiple devices around the world, each acting as a small catalyst for overall data requests. It’s time that more people become hip to what dedicated servers are and how they can benefit from them.
That’s three technologies that many more people are sure to need by 2030. If you enjoyed reading this article please share it with your friends on social media.
