With Technology evolving at an incredible rate, Green Energy becoming more popular, and incredible advancements in Healthcare, it’s difficult to keep up with growth trends. However, Modern Business makes it easy for you to see the progression of all industries such as the below-listed, in one place. After extensive research, we have put together the top 4 industries that should be on your radar for growth this year:
It is no surprise that voice over internet protocol (VoIP), e-commerce and online auctions, Internet publishing and broadcasting are on top of the list. Each is being supported by the increasing popularity of the Internet for communication and business transactions. The global demand for VoIP services equaled more than $83 billion in 2015 and is projected to exceed $140 billion by 2021, per a Zion Research report.
Growing environmental concerns and favorable government assistance has boosted wind and solar power generation. A continued focus on lifting energy self-sufficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions is expected in the next five years. The green energy industry has been ramping up the number of people it employs. Wind turbine service technician jobs should increase by 108 percent from 2014 to 2024, per the BLS.
There are more than 100,000 physical therapy practices in the U.S. today, and outpatient rehabilitation is a key part of the growth for this industry. With the U.S. population aging and becoming more sedentary, industry employment growth for companies seeking physical therapists, home nurses, and other various healthcare professionals is skyrocketing. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that the number of people employed in home healthcare services will increase by 60 percent from 1.2 million people in 2014 to 2 billion by 2024. Other advancements in health care are being made associated with the technology field.
Technology is one industry that continues to prosper as the years fly by us. While we do not know exactly what the future holds, the industry’s tremendous investment in research is a strong indicator that we will soon be witnessing a whole new level of value and opportunities for technology professionals. Biotechnology, drones, video games, and virtual reality production are benefiting from constantly evolving technology and product developments. Take virtual reality for example, VR took off in 2016, and is now the industry’s leading retailing product. Vehicles are being made to drive for us, and drones are the new high-tech gadget used by members of the Army and Navy.
Though growth does not happen overnight, this gives us a chance to start getting enthusiastic about the opportunities that will open for both job-seekers and consumers.
