Global Tech Adoption Trends from the World Economic Forum


Companies plan to adopt big data, cloud, and IoT, among other technologies.

The 2023 Future of Jobs Report from the World Economic Forum cites technology adoption and green transition as key drivers of job creation.

The report, based on data from 803 companies, collectively employing more than 11.3 million workers around the world – explores how jobs and skills will evolve over the next five years and offers “insights on how socio-economic and technology trends will shape the workplace of the future.”

According to the report, more than 75 percent of companies surveyed are likely or highly likely to adopt the following technologies in the next five years:

  • Digital platforms and apps (86.5%)
  • Education and workforce development technologies (80.9%)
  • Big data analytics (80.0%)
  • IoT and connect devices (76.8%)
  • Cloud computing (76.6%)
  • Encryption and cybersecurity (75.6%)

“Among the macrotrends listed, businesses predict the strongest net job-creation effect to be driven by investments that facilitate the green transition of businesses,” the report says, noting that climate change adaptation also rates high as a net job creator.
