Three Trends Driving Electronics Manufacturing in 2019
We live in a technologically driven world. From the moment we wake up, we grab our phones and look at the time, along with messages from friends and loved ones. We use electronics in our daily activities at home, school, and work.
And the thing about technology is that it is continuously evolving. For example, cellphones would change models month after month. You buy a phone and it would not take long before a new model with new features, making you want to upgrade right away.
The first quarter of 2019 has shown promising growth in technology, and here are three trends that are yet to come, driving electronics manufacturing towards advancements that shape the world:
Synchronizing Smart Homes
Bill Gates, one of the richest men on the planet, spent over $100 million to build a smart home. From smart phones to smart TVs and even smart refrigerators and more, our humble abode has become a place where technology thrives. This year, even more developments can be expected not only in manufacturing smart appliances but also increasing possibilities for synchronization. Another direction for smart technology is leaning towards developing resilient homes. In fact, last year was already a start when the home security company developed their Vivint Smart Home, which can help the family prepare and survive natural disasters through real-time alerts and access to proper emergency response.
Experiencing Augmented Reality
From screen to console and other gaming equipment, augmented reality has thrived in the electronics manufacturing industry. The recent years have seen wearable items to experience virtual reality and even apps that combine the gameplay within the context of the game with the real-life world. For instance, media franchises like Pokemon and Harry Potter would develop platforms that combine the virtual and the real. 2019 continues to be a promising year for more games and even nongame experiences where augmented reality is central.
Connecting at Highest Speed
South Korea is recorded to have the fastest Internet connection in the world at an average speed of 25.3 Megabits per second. This motivates country giants to strive to develop high-speed connectivity on the computer and even on mobile. Optic fibers are the current trend in fast data transfer that leads to fast Internet connection. 2019 sees the promise of discovering new ways to make connection faster.
Bonus: Propagation of Outsourcing
Outsourcing in many industries has generated profitable income to companies and jobs to various countries. The mutual benefits of outsourcing prove to be a good direction for electronics manufacturing. A great example of this is the case of China manufacturing. China has become well-versed in the creation of various electronics that they have become an outsourcing center in Asia, if not the world. In 2019, China continues to become a magnet for Western companies in providing manufacturing needs.
What these trends all point out is that, if we can harness technology to improve our standards of living and with the least damage to our environment, then technology can be a good thing to foster progress at a global scale. Let us hope that this year can be a good year for electronics manufacturing so that the world can be a better place to live in.
