Hi, I’m Agam Berry, co-Founder of NYC and Indian based e-commerce agency, Quantified Commerce. My company and I are always on the look out for new tech trends that we can implement in our workspace. It is still early in 2019, but there are definitely some trends to take note of in India. Here is a closer look at what I have found so far early this year.
The Rise in Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality
There has always been a level of intrigue when it comes to virtual reality and augmented reality. The harsh truth is that it has mostly been a little bit too expensive for the majority of people in India to enjoy. As prices come down, more and more people are getting access to this technology and enjoying it.
With more consumers now having access to this technology, it will lead to a lot of developers getting the most out of it as well. It seems like 2019 is really going to be the first year in which we see this type of technology really take off.
More Streaming Options
Streaming television shows and music is something that other parts of the world have been enjoying for a little bit now. India is finally getting to the point where our Internet speeds and capabilities are starting to be more in line with the rest of the world, this includes the capable tech to stream as well.
There is no doubt that streaming is going to be something that is here to stay for quite a while. It is much more convenient than using a traditional TV setup or only listening to a set list of music. Streaming services are popping up all the time and looking to take a share of the market.
I recently shared with Peep India, how Amazon is currently dominating the Indian streaming space because Amazon streams more local shows and movies compared to Netflix, which is loaded with mostly Western content. I foresee more streaming services trying to enter the market with more localized content.
More Adoption of Electric Cars
With so much pollution in India, it really makes sense that electric cars will eventually start to take off. While the average person is likely not going to have an electric car any time soon, they are becoming more and more popular on the road. Affordability is becoming a lot better, and there are a lot of advantages to using an electric car.
Even those people who do not care much about the environment will notice that an electric car is more affordable to use on a monthly basis. They are more expensive initially, but the cost of charging a car is less than paying for gas.
India expects to have more electric cars on the road than ever before in 2019. This is definitely more than just a fad for the people who are well off. Expect electric cars to eventually take over as the cleaner and better option to get around.
Greater Use of Robotics
Robotics are used in a variety of fields, and they are becoming very popular in India. We certainly are not at the point where robots are going to replace humans entirely, but they are figuring out ways to use robotics to take care of simple tasks.
With so much industry in India, it makes sense for some of the more progressive thinking business owners to take a look at all the robotic options out there. It can be very beneficial for the bottom line.
In the future, a lot of tasks will probably be automated. For now, just look for them to make an increased, but still relatively minor, impact.
