New challenges, new needs, new technologies.
A process of technological innovation that we are witnessing. New technologies that will mean a change in the industrial model that we know and that has the necessary capacity to transform the global economy.
Why invest in this trend?
Technology and globalisation: an inseparable pairing.A combination that has favoured the entry of new competitors and accelerated the adoption of new technologies throughout the world. A wave of changes visible in the different industrial and economic sectors.
The answer (and hope) to the current challenges.Faced with pressing problems such as climate change and the ageing of the population, technological innovation is more necessary than ever. But technology is also present in our day-to-day life, providing solutions of lesser importance, although equally relevant in our daily lives: telematic payments, streaming services...
The potential of 5G mobile technology.A technology with transformative power, capable of accelerating artificial intelligence in different sectors such as driverless vehicles, smart cities, telemedicine or the internet of things.
Technological innovations that, in turn, also generate new challenges.
We could say that it is the “snake that bites its own tail”. Technological advances offer solutions to current challenges, but at the same time, they generate new challenges that will also need new solutions.
The presence of robots in society.Robotics deployment will not be limited to developed countries with ageing populations and wage inflation. Robots are likely to settle in younger emerging economies, leaving local workers facing a tougher job market.
Privacy and cyber security.As sensors and internet connectivity become more cost-effective and capable, data collection and analysis will skyrocket and require new solutions.
A transformative innovation that emerges from two scenarios:
Innovation as a solution.The development of new solutions to solve a significant limitation or challenge.
Innovation as an economic benefit.New competitors will arrive, attracted by the high returns offered by the sector.
The investment universe evaluates the life cycle of new technologies, identifying those companies that enable the development of “other” new technologies:
- Innovative companies with solutions that can drive long-term growth.
- Companies, leaders in their sector, with products capable of facing new competitive threats.
- Companies that provide infrastructures for the implementation of new technologies: 5G networks, smart grids, etc.
What do the experts think?
Experts predict that by 2025 there will be 31 billion devices connected to the Internet, a figure that is four times the world population.
