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