The global quantum computing market revenues are projected to surpass 2.5 billion dollars by 2029. 

To get into Quantum Computing. You need to have experience with Quantum Mechanics, Linear Algebra, Probability Information, Theory, and Machine Learning.

8) 5G

The technology of 3G and 4G has enabled us to browse the internet, use data-driven services, increase bandwidths for streaming on Spotify or Youtube, and so much more. Similarly, 5G services are expected to revolutionize our lives by enabling services that rely on advanced technologies like AR and VR alongside cloud-based gaming services like Google, GeForce, and much more.

5G is expected to be used in factories that have cameras that help improve safety and traffic management, smart grid control, and intelligent retail. 

Like other telecom companies Verizon-Mobile, Apple, and Nokia Corp, Qualcomm is now creating 5G applications. 5G services are expected to launch worldwide in 2021, with more than 50 operators offering services in nearly 30 countries by the end of 2021.

7) Internet of Things (IoT)

 In 2021 IoT would evolve into the intelligence of things as more and more devices become AI enabled. IoT software and hardware applications are expected to see tremendous growth. The changing industry dynamics, economic stimulus, and remote access demand. IoT is expected to be adopted by smart manufacturing and healthcare and is expected to bring about industry 4.0.

IoT devices can have applications like clinical, decision-making, thermal, image recognition, surgical assistance, smart clinics, and telemedicine centers. Companies like SAP, Siemens, IBM, Huawei, and Cisco are all currently working on making all new IoT applications

According to research, there will be 35 billion IoT devices installed worldwide by the end of 2021 and 75.44 billion by 2025.
To get started with IoT, you need to learn about Information, Security, AI, Machine Learning, Networking, Hardware, Interfacing Business Intelligence Tools, and UX/UI design.

6) Cyber Security

Given the current scenario and for a while to come, cybersecurity will be a significant focus for many organizations. There would be an increased focus on protecting smaller organizations from cyber attacks protecting the identities and devices of remote workers, preventing access to confidential patient records, protecting smart supply chains, and so much more.

The need for proper cybersecurity is so high that according to cybercrime magazine, According to research by 2021, 6 trillion dollars will be spent globally on cybersecurity. Some of the significant players within this industry are Tinet, Cisco, Microsoft, Splunk, Palo Alto networks, etc. 

To get started with cybersecurity, you’ll need skills like IT, Network Fundamentals, Coding Skills, Cloud Security, and Malware Analysis. 

5) Augmented Virtuality and Extended Reality

In 2021 we can expect these technologies to be further integrated into our lives, usually working in Tandem with some of the other technologies. AR and VR are scheduled to play a massive role in health care by providing training simulations to help medical professionals and opticians perform eye tests. 

It is also to play a massive role in the educational sector, significantly improving the interactivity. The VR video and gaming market is expected to grow to 2.9 and 2 billion in 2021, respectively. Snap Microsoft at NT and Nexus Studios are some of the major companies working towards VR.

You need skills like software development, developmental VR maintenance support design/graphics, and hardware engineering to work in this sector.

4) Dark

Dark is an emerging technology that several significant industries have their sights on. Dark is a combination of distributed ledger technology, artificial intelligence, extended reality, and quantum computing. Accenture, who introduced Dark beliefs that these technologies combined could have an enormous impact on technology as a whole Dark, is now primarily geared towards the healthcare industry.

It is expected to lower the cost of care, improve labor productivity, and enable better experiences for consumers and partners. Due to its currently developing nature, only a few organizations have started taking advantage of this technology. 

To get into the Dark, you’ll need skills related to each of its contributing technologies like Dltai, XR, and quantum computing

3) Cloud Services

Cloud Services are expected to provide even more services that make the technology like AI. Robotics is accessible to every business. Cutting-edge technology is accessible to everyone with little investment. Serverless computing is also being focused on. It allows users to work on the core product without operating and managing the servers hybrid.

Cloud is also expected to show tremendous growth. The SaaS market size is supposed to grow to 81 billion dollars to 140.6 billion US dollars. 

To get into cloud computing, you’ll need to understand the concepts of different cloud computing platforms. Programming languages specialize in services belonging to computer storage database domains and so on.

2) Automation

With an increasing number of potential cases, initiatives towards self-driving vehicles would be a priority for civic authorities and many other organizations worldwide. This ensures that the cost of human labor is reduced and handles customer demand. There would also be an increase in the incorporation of robots in the care and assisted living sectors. Robotic devices are also expected to provide companionship to older people.

Drones are also expected to be incorporated to deliver medicine, groceries, and other essential goods. Some of the famous companies in automation are Siemens, Honeywell, ABB, and Mitsubishi.

To get into automation, you will need skills like programming skills and scripting skills, configuration management software, an understanding of testing tools, and so on.
