China Business Industry Research Institute pointed out that the future development of Metaverse will show four major trends:
- The concept of Metaverse drives the Internet industry into a new stage of development
The Internet industry has developed from the PC era to the mobile era and to the current stage. It is expected that the Metaverse will be the next development stage of the Internet, which will further upgrade the online world into a virtual world that is similar to the real world and has an immersive interactive experience.
- Bring more monetization opportunities and innovative business models
The Metaverse can carry almost all business models of the current Internet industry, and there are more opportunities for development and expansion. Internet+ refers to the use of information and communication technology and Internet platform to deepen the integration of Internet industry and traditional industry. The concept of Internet+ is expected to be upgraded to Metaverse+ in the future, more traditional industries will be penetrated, more innovative business models will be developed, and greater commercial vitality of the Metaverse will be stimulated. The concept of Metaverse+ is similar to that of Internet+, which refers to the integration of traditional industries with Metaverse technologies and business models to promote the development and innovation of these industries and bring more business opportunities, such as Metaverse+ games and Metaverse+ educate.
- Create more job opportunities
On the one hand, the construction of the Metaverse itself requires a lot of resource input and production accumulation, so it is expected that the Metaverse industry will also generate more job opportunities. On the other hand, the Metaverse is a virtual world parallel to the real world. It is expected that there will also be stable social and economic systems in the future. Therefore, the virtual world may generate a large number of job opportunities with virtual identities, and even gradually form a complete employment system.
- More life scenes enter the Metaverse virtual world
