CTA’s Vice President of Market Research Steve Koenig presented the 2022 Tech Trends to Watch . Koenig noted that consumers are “leveling up” their tech, as U.S. household ownership of new technology like 4K Ultra TVs and smart appliances increased more than seven percent in the past year. The U.S. consumer technology industry is projected to generate over $505 billion in retail sales revenue for the first time ever in 2022. The projection represents a 2.8% revenue increase from 2021’s impressive 9.6% growth over 2020. Strong demand for smartphones, automotive tech, health devices and streaming services will help propel much of the projected revenue. Koenig also noted that automotive technology sales are expected to rebound in 2022 as we begin to see early signs of recovery in chip supplies. Factory-installed automotive tech is projected to reach $16 billion in shipment revenues this year, an impressive 7% increase from 2021 ($14.9 billion).
