As we step into the year 2024, we continue to see rapid advancements in technology which can shape the way we live, work, and interact. We decided to take a look at some of the top technology trends that are set to dominate 2024 and beyond.
It now feels like Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a regular in the news cycle and we think this will continue as it becomes a driving force in tech trends. In 2024, it’s likely to become more integrated into various aspects of our lives. AI is moving beyond just chatbots and virtual assistants; it’s influencing decision-making processes, automating complex tasks, and enhancing personalisation in services. Expect AI to play a pivotal role in a range of industries, revolutionising the way we approach problem-solving.
Security and technology always seem to be trending. According to a recent article published in Forbes suggests that one in two businesses have been the victim of a successful cyberattack in the past three years with the costs of these attacks expected to grow to over $10 trillion by the end of 2024. Technologies like AI and machine learning are starting to be used to help with threat detection, while advanced encryption methods can safeguard sensitive information.
Sustainable Tech Solutions
With growing concerns about climate change, sustainability is taking centre stage in technology trends. In 2024, there will be a surge in the development of eco-friendly and energy-efficient technologies. From green data centres to sustainable materials in manufacturing, the tech industry is increasingly looking to play a crucial role in creating a more sustainable and environmentally conscious future.
Extended Reality (XR)
Extended Reality, encompassing VR, AR, and mixed reality (MR), is poised to redefine how we experience the digital world. In 2024 it’s predicted XR technologies will become more immersive, blurring the lines between the physical and virtual. The applications encompass anything from virtual conferences and remote collaboration to interactive educational experiences. Expect to hear more about how XR will transform the way we work, learn, and entertain ourselves.
Increasing demands for bandwidth
Focusing on the flexible workspace sector that we work closely with, our recent Connectivity Trends Report highlighted how the trend for larger internet connections was growing and we expect this to continue in 2024. In 2015 the average internet connection to a flexspace site was 100Mb/s, this has grown now to 1.8Gb/s in the latest set of figures from 2022. This demand is driven by increased client expectation, use of more apps and services that demand fast internet and higher demand for dedicated bandwidth.

The year 2024 promises to be a transformative period in the world of technology. As these tech trends unfold, they will shape both the flexible workspace and wider real estate sectors, ushering in new possibilities and challenges.
