Sector Startup Growth

Thinking of starting your own business? Our friends over at share a list of industries that you might want to take a closer look at.

It has been said again and again that to be a successful entrepreneur, you have to be passionate, creative and hardworking. You have to be your own brand’s biggest fan. You are confident that you can solve your client’s problems.

Obviously, you have to choose your line of business very carefully. It should be something that you love and have the necessary skills and experience in.

However, you also have to be realistic in analyzing the opportunities and profitability of your desired sector.

Finding that industry that is still in its early days of development can help secure your position as a key pioneer player.

As we close 2016, here are the sectors with huge potential for growth in the coming years:

1. Language and Translation

With the globalization of business comes the increased demand for closing communication gap across the world. Companies are looking to give their brands the local flavor in their target countries.

Websites are being translated in different languages to be more friendly to consumers. Various language translation apps have been introduced to meet this need.

However, machine translation still cannot fully replace human translation. Each culture uses specific idioms or figures of speech that cannot be automatically converted to another language. Sentence structure is also different for each language, which makes literal translations sound awkward or even funny.

Be present online and there is a good opportunity to reach clients from all over the world as documents and files can be sent virtually.

2. Specialty food

In the recent years, there has been a strong direction towards health and wellness, especially for younger consumers.

With the increase in available information, people are more empowered to make healthier choices to meet their needs. Diets have evolved to become lifestyles.

The explosion of options such as gluten free diet, vegan and vegetarian diet, paleo diet, casein-free diet, etc. has opened the doors for entrepreneurs to start their business in this sector.

Retail stores offering healthy and organic finds are propping up everywhere, but there is still more than ample room to win a share of the pie.

3. Baby products

Many online retailers have carved out their niche in the baby needs industry. Some carry all categories, while some focus on specific items such as diaper (disposable or cloth), breastfeeding products, or organic baby food.

With the boom in birth rates and increase in purchasing power of new parents, the future of baby products industry looks very promising.

4. Robotics

Entering this industry requires a huge capital and specialized technological know-how.

Some companies have started using automated robotic systems to streamline and improve operations and efficiencies. But currently, there are only very few competitors in this sector.

If you have the funds and knowledge, this is a great industry to consider. After all, there is almost a 100% chance that robotics is the future of the manufacturing and distribution companies.

Whichever sector you choose to enter into, make sure that you conduct proper research and market study. Know the niche you want to carve out for yourself in your field. Remember that your passion and interest are crucial for you to do whatever it takes to succeed in your business.
