We would like to share details of the biggest technology trends that are set to impact the mobile app development industry in 2020.
Machine Learning and AI:
When it comes to mobile app development, AI & Machine learning already made an intense impression. There is no stopping with chat bots and Siri now. It will also enable future trends such as automated machine learning, Al-enabled chips and more. According to the International Data Corporation, it is estimated that the market for AI will be at $40 billion by the year 2020. Off late more sectors are working towards the goal to have the system integrated together with human intelligence.
Internet of Things (IoT):
As time is evolving, the Internet of Things has become an industry itself. People can control the non-IT equipment through mobile apps using this technology. This technology collects and processes the data of different devices by synchronizing them and structuring it. IoT would bring up future trends like self-driving cars, healthcare, etc. According to the Growth Enabler report, the IoT market has been developing at a CAGR of 28.5%. And is expected to reach USD457 billion by 2020.

Statista says, the number of connected wearable devices reached 453 million in 2017 and is expected to reach 929 million by 2021. With the development of technology, we can expect wearable applications to soon turn into an important part of our everyday lives.
Adaptation to Cloud technologies is a must to make the app function seamlessly across multiple platforms. This helps mobile apps to store a large amount of data efficiently and carry out complex tasks. Cloud technology increases the reliability, speed, processing power and security of the apps and enables it to deal with a large amount of data. The worldwide public cloud services market is projected to grow 17.5 percent in 2019 to total $214.3 billion, up from $182.4 billion in 2018, according to Gartner, Inc.
