AI, Gaming, Metaverse, Smart Applications, and ESG will become the Main Trend for ICT Products

TCA stated that from surveying the participating products; including the ones from NVIDIA, ASUS, Acer, MSI, ASRock, QCT, Compal, Realtek, ELAN Microelectronics, ADATA, AVerMedia, etc.; the latest ICT products seem to follow 4 major trends: AI, gaming, metaverse, and smart applications. In addition to the 4 major trends, the participating products are also expected to include ESG and all of the topics will be the mainstream of the ICT industry in this year.

For example, the AI trend has enabled ChatGPT (GPT-3.5) and GPT-4 not only encourages major companies to start increasing their investment in AI equipment. It also encourages manufacturers to launch products in this industry; including AI servers, AI chips, Edge AI devices, etc.

The growing trends of gaming and metaverse show that manufacturers can provide more than just highly efficient 3D rendering, but also high degrees of customization for gamers to enhance their user experience. As the demand for better XR increases to support more metaverse applications and projects, manufacturers now aim to launch more XR hardware and then proceed to metaverse applications.

The development trends of smart AI-enabled applications currently focus on smart applications in professional industries, including smart medical, smart industry, smart cars, and more.

With the growing need for ESG focused products and solutions, the Best Choice Award 2023 has added the Sustainable Tech Special Award for the first time. Many manufacturers today have started utilizing recycled materials, including environmentally friendly recycled packaging, low carbon products with recyclable designs, and more features to add green and sustainable features to reduce carbon emissions.

TCA also found that while manufacturers focused more on software-based cybersecurity solutions; this year has seen more varieties of hardware-software integrated cybersecurity products. In addition to using IC chips to enhance biometric recognition and hardware accelerated AI processing, new cybersecurity solutions have included innovative features including real-time network packet recording & monitoring, abnormal behavior detection, video AI analysis, cross-referencing, etc. The new features aim to improve the efficiency of the cybersecurity solutions in various use cases and settings while reducing the workload of cybersecurity officers and actively generate on-demand analysis report that meet the modern business cybersecurity requirements and specifications.

Global Economy Reopening Will Revitalize International Trade Shows

TCA stated that countries around the world have fully lifted travel restrictions and the World Health Organization (WHO) has announced the end of the pandemic on May 5. This global reopening is expected to revitalize international trade shows and global business network connections. Driven by the twin trend of AI and digital economy, the international demand for ICT equipment has gradually increased and the demand for promotion through international exhibitions continue to grow; which makes the Best Choice Award even more important. Manufacturers can further promote their products and boost their visibility in the international market through the Best Choice Award and expand to the global market.
