2020 was a different year in comparison to all others. The tech trends, hence, were tailor-fitted to what the year needed. This includes the rise of video conferencing as an essential consumer service and not an enterprise tool. Cyber security also finally saw more awareness being generated. Other key trends include the ban on many Chinese apps in India including TikTok and PUBG Mobile. Indian vernacular short video social media platforms also shot to fame through the year, and finally, local manufacturing of smartphones and other hardware finally saw efforts in the country being taken up with more sincerity.
