Dassault Systèmes today revealed that consumers expect that cities in 2030 will be filled with technology that improves the overall quality of life, delivers socially-conscious benefits and personalises experiences.  The findings came from a survey of citizens representing the demographics of US adults that was conducted in partnership with independent market research firm CITE Research.

Hyperloop rail, fully connected smart home systems, mobile payments and personalised preventive health plans are just a few of the disruptive technologies underway today that will become the norm in 2030 according to respondents, who were polled on their expectations for future experiences in home, travel, health and retail.  While consumers expect personalisation as one of the top benefits of technological innovations in 2030 in each of these categories, they also cite security, energy efficiency, convenience, accessibility, savings and prevention as benefits expected from the different technologies. 

Findings from the survey include:

  • Personalised experiences are seen as the primary benefit of advancing technologies, particularly among millennials. Among 18-34-year-olds, technology is expected to deliver experiences that are customised to their own personal needs and tastes; respondents over the age of 35 expect technology advancements to provide primarily a better quality of life.
  • The home of 2030 will be secure and energy efficient.  More than 70 per cent of respondents will use remotely monitored devices, voice-activated assistants and fully-connected smart home systems.  Forty-nine per cent expect to use a virtual personalised home assistant or robot.
  • Transportation and mobility are expected to become increasingly electric and connected, improving cost savings, travel time, road safety and quality of life. More than 70 per cent of respondents expect to use hybrid or fully electric vehicles, while over half expect to travel by hyperloop.  Thirty-eight per cent expect to be using air taxis.  More than 75 per cent expect personalised passenger experiences such as navigation path optimisation and city-controlled traffic regulation, however, the majority expects not to allow access to personal data in order to improve such services.
  • Personalised preventative health and home treatments will become the norm. More than 80 percent of respondents expect to prevent disease and live longer because technology will enable them to manage their personal health more easily and effectively, with 83 per cent expecting preventive plans based on behaviour or nutrition to be the most impactful, 81 per cent devices to dispense treatments at home, and 80 per cent fully electronic record systems. Three-quarters of respondents feel that technologies such as diagnostic at-home applications, wearable devices and custom-made prosthesis orthopaedics will also be impactful.
  • Brick-and-mortar stores are not going away, but the in-store experience will evolve around payments and the use of in-store technologies. In retail, 84 per cent of respondents expect to use mobile payments and anytime/anywhere delivery to make shopping more convenient, but 55 per cent feel that it is unlikely there will only be virtual shopping in 2030.
