Tech trends from CES 2022

Ces 2022 mediacom report

In our annual CES wrap report, we share the most significant tech trends and takeaways from the biggest tech event of the year.

Having evolved beyond its initial ‘Consumer Electronics Show’ namesake, CES can now claim it is the largest tech trade show in the world – and the internet. While one of the biggest (and oldest – over 50 years) technology events in the world was set to return to its traditional in-person format, the pandemic forced a pivot to a simultaneous online and in-person offering, with 2,200 physical exhibitors across 44 tech categories, including new CES categories like space tech and nonfungible tokens (NFTs). 150 companies marked their attendance as “digital-only.”

We've identified eight key themes from this year's event and go into detail about how each impacts brands:

  • Connectivity
  • Retail & Experiences
  • Future of Work
  • Beauty & Wellness
  • Smart Home
  • Content Creators
  • Healthcare
  • NFT’s & Crypto

Our report looks at some of the devices we may be using in the coming years and provide plenty of inspiration as to how the tech trends of the coming year may play out.
