SHARING ECONOMY, FINTECH AND GADGET TECH AMONG FALLING STARTUP TRENDS

A new report from Irish based tech PR agency ClearStory international has revealed a significant decrease in interest across a number of previously popular tech sectors.

The ClearStory International startup trend report 2019 analyses rising and falling startup tech trends across Irish media. The report analyses 37 trends, providing unique insights into areas of technology which are leading national debate and interest.

The report, released today, has shown the top 5 falling startup tech trends in Ireland are:

1. Sharing economy
2. Fintech
3. Wearables
4. Drones
5. Virtual Reality

In addition, ClearStory international identified the 5 fastest growing trends for startups among Irish media. These are:

– Gig economy
– Cryptocurrency
– Cybersecurity
– Remote working
– Blockchain

These findings indicate strong interest in future of work trends across Ireland. The shift in interest has surged since 2016, overtaking Blockchain and AI, and is on course to become Ireland’s most talked about startup tech topic.

Coverage

Overall media coverage of tech and startups has increased by 59% over the past two years as the implications of emerging tech on the public remain a key area of interest.

From Artificial Intelligence to Pet Tech, the report examines the rise in media coverage of tech trends in Ireland in recent years, from 3,453 related articles in 2016 to 5,883 in 2018 as interest in emerging trends peaked. Tech trends such as Cryptocurrency, Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain largely led the surge, supported by growth in emerging workplace topics such as the gig economy, coworking and remote working.

Commenting on the release of ClearStory International’s first Startup Trend Report, Managing Director, James McCann said:

“While Artificial Intelligence and the implications of Blockchain continue to capture the imagination of the Irish public, it’s the future of work that is fast becoming the most talked about tech topic in Ireland. The gig economy, co-working and remote working are all rapidly rising trends and general tech coverage with it, which has increased to 59% over two years”.

He added:

“The ClearStory Startup Trend Report aims to assist the Irish startup ecosystem and related stakeholders in their decision-making processes for 2020. It gives an overview as to what trends are leading national debate and will form part of a global series analysing trends in other countries”.
