The Impact of COVID-19 on Tech Innovation

June 16, 2020 | State of the Market Report

Companies have been facing the immediate impact of the coronavirus outbreak on operations, but the scale of the crisis is such that business is unlikely to return to normal even after the pandemic is suppressed -- so leaders in innovation need to start planning for how their strategies will need to change. This report looks at the five major trends that will shape the ongoing impact of COVID-19 in the aftermath of the outbreak. It examines the impact these trends will have on technologies from the circular economy to artificial intelligence to alternative proteins and explores how industries will be altered and reshaped. Companies will need to plan for these changes, and innovation will be more important than ever – and many major preexisting trends will continue and even be accelerated after the crisis.
