Top 20 Innovative Business ideas for the Future 2020 to 2030

1.  Healthcare

The US department of labor recently stated that 10 out of the 20 fastest-growing occupations in the US are related to healthcare, and this industry will generate more than 3 million jobs by the year 2018. This growth is due to the aging population (graying boomers), which will increase the demand for home healthcare delivery services (expected to increase by a whopping 50% over the next decade).

2.  Home care for the elderly

Due to the ever-aging population in the United States and other developing countries, there is an increasing demand for independent living by the elderly. And any businesses that can cater to this need by offering personal home care products and services to the elderly; with respect to physical therapy, grocery shopping, cooking, etc will be of great relevance for years to come.

3.  Services for retirees

Everyone wants to live a good life even after retirement. And it is expected that by the year 2020, 80% of workers born in North America will be older than 50; a statistic revealed by Entrepreneur magazine. This trend will open huge opportunities for businesses targeting adults that are over 50, who are looking to enjoy a blissful retirement. Such businesses include retirement real estate, retirement recreational services, nutritional counseling to help seniors look better, etc.

4.  Wellness and natural health

The wellness and natural health industry will most likely exceed the mainstream healthcare industry in the nearest future. So, natural health experts and products will be in great demand.

5.  Care for the elderly with special needs

As there is an increase in the number of elderly people with temporary or permanent disabilities and ailments, there will be an increasing demand for services that help such people — such as skilled nursing and medical care for the elderly.

6.  Mobile marketing consulting

Due to the ever-increasing number of people who surf the web using mobile devices like Smartphones and tablets, businesses are now realizing the need to adopt mobile marketing as a way of targeting prospects that use mobile devices. This has led to an increase in the demand for mobile marketing consultants.

Since indicators are suggesting that mobile devices will continue to dominate for a long time (just as the need for mobile marketing), there’s a huge opportunity for mobile marketing consultants.

7.  Home improvement services

Because there’s no end in sight to the current global economic crisis, people are resorting to self-created, home-based businesses; a development that confines them to their homes most of the time. This means there will be a big demand for home improvement services.

8.  Social media consulting

With the dramatic increase in the popularity of social networks like Facebook and Twitter, businesses are deeming it more necessary than ever to start using these platforms for reaching out to prospects. This has led to a huge demand for marketing consultants who advise businesses on how to promote and market their products and services on social networks; and this demand will keep increasing for as long as social media continues to remain relevant.

9.  Children’s educational services

The current economic crisis has led to a major cutback in school budgets. And this will increase the demand for tutoring and related academic services and programs.

10.  Outsourcing

Due to the current state of the economy, businesses are looking for ways to cut down cost and streamline their operations. One way businesses are trying to achieve this is by outsourcing to freelance contractors what used to be in-house functions; such as human resources, accounting, and IT related tasks. If you can setup an outsourcing agency, you are in for huge profit potential
