This study places the key digital technologies which will be adopted by 2030 into a broad yet deep perspective.

Its ranking of the most promising technologies in the period ahead is based on a diversity of sources. They range from existing third-party analyses and the founded viewpoints of the IDATE DigiWorld technology analyst to an extensive survey held among a community of technology experts and innovators.

Beyond the ranking, the study offers an analysis of the survey results, presenting aspects not only of the future of technology but also how they could affect business ecosystems and market uptake. It covers five domains: hardwaresoftware/ITnetwork and telecommunicationsuser experiences and interfaces, and cybersecurity.
In all, over 50 technologies were considered as part of the survey.

To deepen the perspective even further, the report reassesses the evolution of previous forecasts in earlier IDATE studies of key technologies. The outcome is a roadmap of innovations which reflects the maturity and adoption levels of technologies in the time ahead.

Data and key figures: 

  • IDATE DigiWorld’s technology ranking for 2030. One major trend: Quantum leap. Expectations are huge of a technology that is not yet at all mature – its advent would represent a profound paradigm shift.
