We love our gadgets, don’t we? Each year, we get to witness a series of new tech launches and developments being rolled out to the market. (The next moment, we see ourselves browsing an online catalogue for the ‘next’ device to complement the other devices, most probably, that we are currently using.) In this modern day and age, technology is almost inseparable from one’s daily life. According to the statistics on BankMyCell, the number of mobile users in the world today is 6.648 billion, as of October 2022. This means, approximately 83.32% of the world’s population owns a smartphone. (Cover image credit: eslbrains.com)

And in these two years, with the pandemic taking the world by storm — particularly during the lockdown phase — the number of time people spend on their phones and tech gadgets, connected to the internet has spiked tremendously, as well. In addition, GWI’s ongoing survey of internet users around the world also reveals strong growth in the adoption of smartwatches and smart wristbands over recent months.

Reflecting on the stats from these surveys, it goes on to reveal just how relevant and impactful tech or mobile gadgets would be, by incorporating them in your list for promotional gift items. The market for promotional and branded merchandise and gifts is ever changing. In order to keep yourself on track with the pace, you need to be up to date with the latest tech gifts that are popular, or 'in demand'. When paired with well-planned marketing campaigns, the selected tech gift can be used to your company's advantage.
Appealing to a wider audience
Tech gadgets have always been a gift item that almost no one would say to. Whether it is to express your appreciation towards your clients, or a "good job, well done" gift to reward your employees, tech or mobile gadgets make a brilliant corporate gift that's perfect for any occasions. And in recent years, the volume of corporate gifting has also increased. A survey conducted by Coresight Research revealed that 66% out of 300 corporate givers (sampled in May 2021) claimed that the reason they opt for corporate gifting is to keep employees motivated (during the pandemic). On other hand, 59% hoped that corporate gifting could improve the relationship with their clients or prospects — keeping them connected.
