9 Leading Technologies of 2021 That Will Continue to Dominate the Markets in 2022

Technology trends are known for constant transformation, making it strenuous to highlight which one would continue; and which not. Similarly, if we talk about the leading technologies of 2021, several new innovations were made that changed the scope of the market across businesses.

Be it the healthcare industry, agriculture, space, IoT, defence, or any other industry vertical, these technological innovations have had a huge furor.

As we step closer to the end of 2021 and look forward to a new year, let’s look at 9 such technological advancements that lead the market and have shown clear signs of growth in 2022 (and beyond).

Surgical Robotics

The surgical robots made a swift entry into the healthcare market by integrating AI with medical science. A significant sum of money has been invested in this field, to develop new and revolutionary surgical robotic systems to aid in a variety of specialty surgical applications.

Robotic-assisted surgical procedures are minimally invasive, which improves medical outcomes by minimizing hospital stay and re-admission rates.

Owing to the accessibility of numerous technologically advanced products in the industry, this technology facilitates clinical assessment of surgery results and treatment complications.

Precision Psychiatry

Precision psychiatry customizes healthcare and gives personalized results. The exponential rise in the number of cases linked to psychiatric diseases has sparked interest among biotech firms. They're also investing in the development of molecular diagnostics for the assessment of mental diseases, which will help clinicians provide more precise care.

Genomics and Gene Editing

Cell and gene therapy entails extracting cells, proteins, or genes from a donor and modifying them to deliver highly tailored treatment. Traditional treatments may not have the same long-term impact as cell and gene therapies.

Effective and long-lasting treatments are now being reported at an increasing rate from gene therapy trials. A wide range of hereditary diseases (including hematological, neurological, and metabolic problems), as well as numerous cancer forms, had positive outcomes.

Blind patients' vision can be restored, blood malignancies can be cured after several failed therapies, hemoglobinopathies, and coagulation factor deficiencies can be corrected, and children born with a primary immune deficiency can have their immune systems restored.

Approximately 2,000 clinical trials for various diseases have taken place or are now underway, with many more in the pipeline.

Nucleic Acid Therapeutics

The growing number of FDA-approved nucleic acid therapies shows that diseases can be treated in vivo by addressing their genetic blueprints. Through gene suppression, addition, replacement, or editing, nucleic acid treatments can have long-lasting or even curative effects.

Nucleic acid treatments use designed nucleotide sequences to influence gene expression selectively, allowing clinicians to reduce the symptoms of a genetic condition. It does so without modifying the patient's DNA permanently.

The majority of already approved indications are for rare disorders, though in those cases, the therapeutic effects can be substantial.

CRISPR Gene Editing

Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR) is a novel technique found by scientists that lead the healthcare industry in 2021.
It is a breakthrough technique that has taken the research industry by storm.

Many people expect to harness CRISPR gene editing technology to cure diseases and eliminate hereditary disorders. CRISPR gene editing technique is extremely user-friendly. As a result, it's becoming standard practice in a number of cancer investigations.

Space-Based RF & Microwave Technology

Because of the increased demand for satellite launch automobiles from a wide range of end customers, including defence, scholarly, corporate, government, and non-profit organizations, the global space economy has been expanding rapidly.

As a wireless communication transmission channel, RF communication is widely adopted in telecom. The advent of a fifth-generation network, as well as industry operators' decision to cater directly to end consumers rather than passing through network distribution centers, will drive demand and create new opportunities.

Urban Air Mobility (UAM) Market

Air transportation concentrated around cities is not a novel phenomenon. Boston and a few other cities had on-demand helicopter taxi services in the 1970s. However, due to accidents, air pollution, noise, and cost, these taxi services were eventually discontinued.

The urban air mobility sector has become increasingly important in recent years. This is due to a growing need for a faster and more efficient mode of transportation than what is currently available.

Precision Agriculture

Precision agriculture is a farming technology that enables farmers to better manage their crop conditions. It extends beyond the use of chemicals like fertilizers, insecticides, or herbicides.

The use of drones in precision agriculture has shown immense positivity with regard to providing high-resolution aerial data of the farms and assisting in spraying fertilizers, sowing, inspection, etc.

Growers can boost output by reducing the time by having equipment work quicker and yielding more crops per drop of water or by reducing the amount of food they apply with precision agriculture. Precision agriculture leads to efficient crop delivery with less waste, making it a considerably more environmentally friendly technique than conventional farming.

Indoor Farming

The demand for food commodities, fresh and organic produce, and the need for an alternative growing method for sustainable agriculture is fueling the growth in the global indoor farming technology market.

To meet the need for fresh stocks, the country's future lies in indoor farming. Indoor vegetable cultivation has a variety of advantages, and it is a great alternative. It is possible to manage the growth of conventional agriculture crops because they are cultivated indoors.

Final Thoughts

So, these were some of the leading technologies of 2021 that shaped the market across businesses; in their respective industries. As clear from the description, these technological innovations are clearly here to stay and make a sounding impact not just in 2022 but for years to come.
