December 14, 2021

Lux Research recently held a webinar, "The Lux Foresight Report: Implications and Innovations in a Post-COVID World", which discussed what we think are the most impactful technologies to look out for in 2022 as we approach a post-COVID world. Lux Vice President Kevin Pang, M.B.A., Ph.D. outlined the key findings in Lux's annual report, showcasing predictions for what's to come in clean energy technologies, circular technologies, digital technologies, and future consumer technologies.

Like all cataclysms, the COVID-19 pandemic has left an indelible mark on our landscape. The progression of some technologies has been delayed while the pandemic is starting to resolve, while others have disappeared in favor of new alternatives. At the same time, new and unanticipated technologies have burst forward. In 2021, there have been some specific highlights in climate tech, circular tech, future consumer tech, and digital tech. For example, carbon capture became a business, chemicals embraced DSPs in a bigger way, cellular meat received market approval, and COVID drove D2C and further shortened the last mile of the supply chain and "everything on the edge" thinking.

Lux Research's annual report delves deep into some specific technologies to watch for in 2022, such as high-temperature heat pumps, advanced pyrolysis, novel seed treatments, and ultra wideband sensors. The presentation also discussed 15 "unpopular predictions for 2022". To learn more about the Lux Foresight Report 2022, download the executive summary.

Kevin Pang closed out the presentation by sharing the results from what he called his "$10 million question". After asking Lux analysts where they would invest $10 million in 2022, our experts broke down their priorities into short-term and long-term opportunities in climate tech, circular tech, future consumer tech, and digital tech.
