Are you wondering what area to start a business or what direction to take your current company in as we approach 2020? Some industries are trending upwards and set to boom.

Let’s take a look at some of the key fields that will be in high demand in the near future.


Online retail

According to Forbes, number one for predicted growth is online retail. With more and more consumers being connected to the internet around the world, the potential for sales is enormous.

Within this category, what’s termed as ‘fast fashion’, i.e. Affordable clothes that buyers don’t expect to be wearing in one or two years time is one a frontrunner. The target audience for this type of clothing is young, cashed up and tech savvy – the perfect formula for profits!


Online Groceries

Online grocery shopping will be on the up too in the next five years, with traditional retailers being joined in the space by gourmet, organic and specialised food options.

3D Printing

3D printing is to manufacturing what email was to communication. It changes everything, cutting development costs and fast-tracking time to market.

This technology is still considered experimental by many, but already entire apartment blocks are being constructed using 3D printing technology.

The cost of 3D printing is set to fall and the number of uses are set to skyrocket. Think jewellery, think toys, architecture and car parts. Even prosthetics can be created with 3D printing.


This industry has been on a roll for a long time, with no signs of slowing. Yoga and Pilates are hotter than ever. Also on the rise are MMA ‘fighter’ workouts and spin cycle classes.
