Tech Predictions: 2030

As technology rapidly advances, we are often faced with new ways of living. For example, the idea of ‘Siri’, a ‘virtual assistant’ in which you are able to give vocal orders to would have been unthought of in the early 2000’s. However, today similar devices including Amazon’s ‘Alexa’ and Apple’s ‘Siri’ proves that technology is rapidly changing and we must adapt to it.

So, what’s next? It can be difficult to predict about technology as it evolves, but take a look at some of the latest and most popular tech predictions for 2030…

AR (Augmented Reality)

By 2030, customers will mostly rely on AR for online shopping. AR will advance to provide more immersive and realistic experiences for its users. Today, the current introduction of Augmented Reality before you make purchases (implemented by Argos & Ikea to showcase their products in your home) and the ability to get your shopping sent to your home has resulted in less customers going into shops. This will only become more common, as by 2030 it is predicted that customers will rarely go into shops unless they are given a good reason to.

AI (Artificial Intelligence)

From the use of Alexa, Chat GPT and even a simple Google Search, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has a secured itself a spot in everyday life. By 2030, it is predicted that Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning will be an even more prominent part of society. AI Robots will become more able and versatile, allowing them to perform a wider range of tasks in human-like ways, including healthcare procedures, waiting staff and self-driving cars.


Significant advances of the Metaverse are predicted to occur by 2030. Avatars in the Metaverse will become more realistic and you will be able to connect with others in a more realistic and human-like way. The introduction of 5G networks will allow for high-speed communication and therefore, the metaverse will become more accessible to users. It will be used by more people and businesses, even helping to provide services such as retail, healthcare, work and education. It is predicted that in 2030, the Metaverse will become fundamental in how we live our everyday lives.

Tech Roles

As the world continues to adapt to advancements in tech, careers in tech will need to adapt alongside it. For example, there may be an increased demand for skills in artificial intelligence, augmented reality and machine learning. As the Metaverse and virtual reality become more realistic, there could be a growing requirement for those in 3D modelling, animation and development. Furthermore, there could be a constant demand for Cyber Security to protect businesses from cyber attacks and IT Systems Analyst jobs as someone has to make sure that all of the devices are working correctly and doing the job they are supposed to do.

The future of tech is unpredictable and exciting. These predictions are based off current trends as many other developments and projects could occur by 2030. However, we must keep up with technology advancements and adapt to a new way of living. If you are looking to get started with a tech role to advance your career, we can help.
