This new year as we build and ship new products, we also learn from other launches to build better products. Let us time travel across the #1 Product Hunt launches of every month in 2022. The year 2022 was filled with mixed emotions in the startup ecosystem, as well as the whole economy on the verge of a recession. This does not stop builders from building, and as a testament to this we can see multiple products that are launched throughout the year addressing several problems we face.

While curating the list of the top PH launches, I came across some interesting observations.
- Most of the top products works towards increasing productivity one way or another.
- Collaboration platforms also looks like a major problem builders are trying to solve with their new launches.
- Automations using no code tools have been a trend in the recent few years, and there are multiple products being built to solve several problems in this regard.
- The launches that happen at the start and around early 3rd week of every month have the highest probability of being the #1 product of the month.
To discover new products that are being built everyday, and to stay on top of the innovations Product Hunt has been a great platform that I have started using. The community here is always enthusiastic, focuses on improvising their products and provides feedback that can make or break a product.
How do you think things are going to shape up in 2023?
