Worldwide trends

Post by Juraj Vysvader » Sun May 14, 2017 8:21 pm

I know a lot of people fascinated by sci-fi "Time Machine", or any possibilities of a "time travel", because it could give the chance to change some event yet before it happened : ) Dunno, almost nobody takes just a half of the interest in global trends, or straight predictions. Theoretically, if someone could go back in time and stay there, then could take advantage of the knowledge of nowadays world and become one of the richest people.

Eventually, someone could get rid of, avoid a business activity coming to its end. Otherwise, it's easier, drastically cheaper and evidently more successful to pre-prepare own ground for an opportunity long years in advance than jump between stronger business competitors and try to start up in the shadow of their long years established and well-grown businesses.

I'd like to share and read from you some worldwide trends, which could be interesting (minimally for someone).

Added by me, It's some collection from analytic agencies:

  • Global sales made online are expected to increase cca 1/2 in the next 3 years (in western countries, Japan and Australia having well-established e-commerce it should be growing just a little bit slower: 12-15%/year). Physical shops are gonna lose customers because of virtual e-shops. Small e-shops don't pay any rent for a physical place, any employees and if govs will allow what you can see here, or few other innovations, we'll see accelerated rise of small sellers ‘facing bankruptcy’, which can't withstand hypermarkets and e-commerce businesses .

  • Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds and Paradox of Progress from NIC.
    More than century long American hegemony should be ending very soon and all western economies are expected to be continuously declining. They expect the high unemployment rate in the west, however increasing quality of life in poorer countries due to the same factor (because of automation, robotics).

  • The average profile of buyers undergoes a change. Living beyond 100 will become the norm and even without it, there're some increasingly diagnosed diseases taking attention of NIH like genetically noninheritable type 2 of diabetes (90% of diabetes are caused by lifestyle, non-genetically predisposed factors such as e.g. high income of sugar). There's 4 million of people having diabetes in the UK and this number is expected to double.
    After some years, we'll live in a world of elderly and middle-aged people diagnosed with civilization diseases, which will be spending few times more for medicine and supplements associated with healthiness and diets. The healthcare system will be overwhelmed, covering even less than now and people will have to shop it by themselves. They'll incline to buy cheaper alternative supplements purchased in e-shops. Meantime, people will be spending less for toys and other things associated with kids.
