Posted On July 12, 2022 1:22 pm

Tech stocks have witnessed a massive sell-off this year, with the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite index slumping 30.7% year-to-date. The Fed’s aggressive policy tightening to bring prices down, supply chain logjams, a tight labor market, and geopolitical unrest have all contributed to the correction.

Given the surging demand for tech products and solutions and consistent breakthroughs, the industry is expected to generate substantial revenues in the long run.

The global information technology market is expected to hit $13.81 trillion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 10.3%. Emerging technologies such as the internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence, cloud computing, AR & VR are expected to be the key drivers of the industry’s growth.
