China is known for its ground-breaking technology and electronics that shape the world and the economy leading the way for further advancement and innovative creations.
One example is the innovative technology of 5G that is set to be the most wide spread technology used in the coming years. This will come into fruition via tech giants such as Huawei, Qualcomm, and Intel who set out goals to transform industries with broad applications.
However, this is just one of many exciting new developments to watch as Chinas tech trends are set to make a significant impact in the next few years.
Over the past few years and foreseeable future China has focused its attentions on Quantum technology and set its sights on major breakthroughs in quantum communications and quantum computing. It is reportedly investing $10bn in building the National Laboratory for Quantum Information Sciences in Hefei.
Edge computing is the collection and analysis of data at the source of generation, at the Edge of the network, instead of a centralised location such as the cloud. Since 2017 Chinese mobile companies have been conducting pilots with tech giants such as Huawei and Alibaba are joining forces to explore the capabilities of Edge technology.
China has developed flexible displays that allow users to roll, bend and fold away the screen. This technology will transform the use of tablets and phones as we know it and prevent the dreaded smashing of screens, while also allowing for a sticker type screen that can be used anywhere. This technology is predicted to become increasingly popular in the next few years.
AR and VR (Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality) is becoming increasingly popular with companies now embracing the technology so as to adopt and implement it in businesses. This technology is used worldwide however China is currently one of the top investors with over 50% of companies surveyed already implementing immersive technology for business operations.
These are just some of many technology trends that are set to become increasingly popular in the years to come. China continues to push boundaries by not only creating world-changing technology but adapting and implementing it into everyday life.
