The global economy, according to many analysts, is expected to double by 2020. As a result, there will be an incredible amount of worldwide opportunities for businesses and investors to capitalize on. From an investor’s perspective, the options may seem endless when exploring what profitable investments may be available as the world’s economy unfolds into the future, so it would help to put things into a measure of perspective to narrow down the long list of potential options.
the business and investment world, consumer demand dictates the supply.
There was a recent report that forecast there will be an additional 1
billion people that will be considered to be “new global consumers” by
the year 2025. This means there will be a huge need for more food,
clothing and shelter that will have to be met, providing many different
opportunities for businesses and investors to choose where they would
like to put their money to grow and generate profit. This demand will
not just be limited to the basics of survival but also everything else
the modern-day consumers like to purchase, such as electronics and toys
and furniture etc..
When you are looking at the range of these commodities, another sector that will be in strong demand
is the hard assets that are needed to manufacture and transport the
supply of consumer goods. Also, it would be wise to consider many
different aspects of the shipping industry since 90 percent of the
world’s consumer goods are delivered by the maritime sector. Again, the rationale behind
narrowing down a list of potential options revolves around the
likelihood of what will be in strong demand as the global economy grows
to it’s expected unprecedented levels.
For example, it has been
predicted that the level of global port infrastructure needed to meet
the rising shipping container demand in the next ten years is expected
to be about 2.5 times the present level. Already in the last ten years,
trillions of dollars have been invested in more than 140 countries
around the world to upgrade their port systems, and it looks like there
is going to be a demand for tens of trillions of more dollars that will
be needed just to keep up. This provides many opportunities for business and investors
looking to profit from a growing sector that is experiencing constant
growth levels now and expected to for many years in the future. That is a
good recipe for investment success. Invest in growth markets.
yet, invest in sectors that are essential to facilitate the growth in
the growing markets. Like the shipping industry. With all this global
consumer demand that is expected on the horizon, there will also be a
massive demand for shipping containers to transport all the increased
demand for consumer goods all around the world. Currently there are tens
of millions in circulation. In the next ten years that number is
expected to be in the hundreds of millions. The global economy of the
future is going to provide many great opportunities as it continues to
grow and with it, many viable investment and business options to choose
from. It’s just a matter of picking the best one that consistently delivers steady returns for investors.
