COVID-19 Accelerates the Adoption of Civil Drone Shipments, Nearly Doubling 2020 Pre-Pandemic Forecast

Like many technologies, the future of robotics is being complicated by COVID-19. But more than any other technology, robotics developers have visibly demonstrated the value of more flexible automation to meet the enormous challenges being placed on businesses and governments. While shipments in autonomous last-mile delivery and commercial cleaning robot shipments will be bolstered by the pandemic, drones for civil use-cases will see the most immediate and long-term growth. Civil drone shipments will nearly double from 2020 pre-pandemic forecasts to reach 13,400; and nearly 80,000 shipments will take place in 2025, states ABI Research.

The Critical Need for IoT Cybersecurity Will Drive Device Authentication Services to US$8.4 Billion Revenues by 2026

By 2026, IoT connections will exceed 23 billion across all major IoT markets. Almost all those connections will be faced with incessant and constantly evolving cyber-threats, forcing implementers and IoT vendors to embrace new digital security options to protect managed fleets and connected assets. Secure device authentication currently stands among the top-tier investment priorities for key IoT markets. ABI Research expects that hardware-focused IoT authentication services will reach US$8.4 billion in revenues by 2026.

There are several key technologies revolving around authentication security that currently transform the IoT device value chain. Chief elements among them revolve around IoT identity issuance, provisioning, authentication, encryption key lifecycle management, access management, and attestation,” explains Dimitrios Pavlakis, Industry Analyst. These are the prime focus of IoT vendors who capitalize on the emerging threat horizon to better position their services and explore new IoT monetization models.

5G Security in the Spotlight: Can it Help Sustain Future IoT Applications?

Toolbox.com (written by ABI Research Industry Analyst Dimitrios Pavlakis)

Stakeholders might need to re-think their long-term strategies, especially when certain high-profile Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and vendors are dominating the value chain and extending their reach in other geographic areas worldwide.

Virtual reality is booming in the workplace amid the pandemic. Here’s why

CNBC

After years of promises and false starts, COVID-19 has driven a record number of workers remotely and could finally usher in their regular use of VR and AR at home — or at least give the tech a push on the path to mainstream.

A PwC report last year predicted that nearly 23.5 million jobs worldwide would be using AR and VR by 2030 for training, work meetings or to provide better customer service. According to a report by ABI Research this year, before the pandemic the VR market was forecasted to grow at a 45.7% compound annual rate, surpassing $24.5 billion in revenue by 2024.
