Best Industries from 2000 to 2009

December 28, 2009

There is a post by Paul Kedrosky titled “Best and Worst Industries of Decade, or, Why Children’s Clothes Makers Need to Get Into VoIP”. I found it interesting so I thought I would post the top 10 over here. If you want to see the bottom 10, I recommend you check out Paul’s post. It will also explain why he titled the post the way he did.

For me, I like to reflect back on the last decade and see what industries really made a lot of noise. Technology is listed in the top 3 spots. No big surprise there. I would hope to see Tank & Armored Vehicle Manufacturing get replaced by something else like Green Vehicles or Alternate Sources of Energy.
Trends are interesting. If I were starting a new business, I would not start up something in those areas. Traditional and mature business models are ripe for innovating and applying technology to. Plus there’s something to be said about those mature models which have a known track record for generating revenue.
What do you think will be trending in the next decade?
