Foretelling future is often a difficult task to perform; however, we are experiencing a time of great change and well marked trends (especially as far as technology is concerned) that if we analyze and we start to imagine all the possibilities that it is possible to provide in the near future (within about 5 to 10 years) some businesses that have had tremendous growth and therefore be attractive when undertaking or invest.
The following are nine businesses that we believe will be profitable in the near future given the trends that are occurring right now, and if you are looking for businesses to start or where to invest, you should consider now.
Internet of Things
The Internet of things is a term that every time we hear most often. This refers to the interconnection with certain everyday objects through Internet, which aims to simplify our lives. Examples of these objects are smart refrigerators that let us know at any time the status of food or food that we need, smart brushes that help children to brush properly, smart cars are parked and even drive themselves , among others that we can find on the market.
Today, the Internet of things is in full swing (there are those who compare with the advent of the Internet and smartphones), and growing at an exponential rate. If we add the infinite possibilities it presents, it is not difficult to imagine where is present in every aspect of our lives and thus, for example, are common smart homes where near future with the smartphone can control the doors, lights and air conditioning, and even intelligent cities where thanks to a network of sensors, lighting, sewerage and transport function efficiently.
Virtual reality is another term which we hear increasingly more often. This refers to a simulated real-looking environment where people have the feeling of being immersed in it, and that is provided by devices basically made up helmets or virtual reality glasses among which the Oculus Rift Facebook, HTC live HTC, Sony PlayStation VR, the Samsung Gear VR Samsung, among others that soon we will see in the market.
Today the virtual reality is still in an early stage, but due to technological advances and the interest that you are putting large technology companies, at any time will take off. If we add the infinite possibilities presented (for example in the use of education and medicine), it is not difficult to imagine the near future where virtual reality experiences are common among consumers, and thus various opportunities for capable of brindles.
Health technology is another term which you hear more and more. This refers to the set of devices and procedures through the use of technology prevent, diagnose and treat diseases. Examples of these devices and procedures are micro cameras in pill form that allow endoscopes, 3D printers that allow reconstructing human tissues, bionic prostheses that can be controlled with the mind, among others that are already being used.
Today health technology is growing, and because of the constant technological advances and concern in people to meet their basic need to stay healthy, it is expected to grow in the coming years more. If in addition to this we consider the various possibilities presented (for example, devices to detect diseases early or physical rehabilitation based on virtual reality), we imagine the near future where to abound these devices and procedures, and thus various opportunities for those who are able to design them and provide them.
The wearables are electronic devices that a person carries on any part of your body in order to get the benefit of their duties. Wearables are examples of smart watches that allow making and receiving phone calls, smart wristbands that allow monitoring vital signs, smart lenses that allow taking photos with blink, among others that can already be found on the market.
Today wearables are in full swing and are increasingly popular with consumers. If in addition to this we consider the infinite possibilities that we imagine the near future (probably when price reduction and have a lighter design) where these devices are commonly used as they are now smartphones, and with it large opportunities for those who develop them, but also for those who sell, repair and even rent.
Due to constant innovations that are coming to market with increasing frequency, the use of smartphones is growing in people, which no longer only used to communicate with others but also to perform various activities such as taking and sharing photos, record and watch videos, find a physical location, and compare and buy products.
Given this trend in use, but also the various possibilities that still exist for these devices (eg, smartphones different various ways to the traditional rectangular shape, or smartphones that are used as means of payment) and the great potential market that exists (there are still a large number of people who still use basic cellular), it is possible to foresee that in the near future the business of smartphones will be as or more profitable than it is now.
Due to the increased use of smartphones, but also to the constant innovations that are coming to market with increasing frequency (today we can find applications that organize lists to applications that allow us to keep track of our food or exercise) is also increasing the number of downloads and use of mobile applications (applications for smartphones and tablets).
Given this trend download and used, but also the various possibilities that exist for these programs (for example, applications to integrate smartphones with other devices on the Internet of things), it is possible to provide full near future opportunities for designers of mobile applications, but especially for those who are able to design really useful and novel applications.
Due to environmental problems such as global warming, more and more concern for the care of the environment, and thus greater concern to find ways to replace the use of conventional energies that pollute such as oil or gas natural, for the use of renewable energy such as the sun or the wind that besides not contaminating it are inexhaustible.
Given this trend for the care of the environment and find ways to use renewable energy, and the progress we are already seeing in this task (for example, the lowering of costs in manufacturing solar panels), we imagine a not too distant future where it is common to use renewable energy, and thus many opportunities for those who are able to provide them, for example, through products that generate electricity from solar energy or wind energy.
- The end of oil is coming? This prediction says yes
- Say goodbye to energy bills with this new invention of Tesla Powerwall
- 10+ Rare Energy Resources that you did not pay attention
- Yes, The Bridges May Also Be Capable of Producing Renewable Energy
Because of the tendency that exists for the care of the environment, but also the tendency in people to consume healthy and nutritious food, as well as the relationship that is being given to the consumption of processed foods with various diseases such as obesity and cancer, increasing the consumption of organic foods (foods such as vegetables, fruits, meats and dairy products that are produced without the use of chemicals or addictive) is greater.
Given this growing increase in consumption, but potential also the wider market that exists, we imagine a where it is common consumption of organic food, and thus many opportunities for those who produce them not too distant future, distribute and sell but also for selling made based on these foods food, and even for those who sell other types of healthy food such as vegetarian, dietary or simply that low fat and seasonings.
Because they do not pollute the environment, but also saving on fuel, electric cars (cars that run on electricity rather than fuel) are increasingly popular with consumers, and proof of this is the new manufacturers of these cars that are appearing on the market, and large car manufacturers (and even belonging to another sector) are beginning to make their own models.
Given this growing popularity, but potential also the big market there, we imagine the near future where it is common to see this type of cars on the streets (which in turn would also be smart), and with it great opportunities for the manufacture, but also for those who marketed and repair, even for those who manufacture, market and repair other types of electric vehicles such as motorcycles and electric bicycles.
