The Next Decade’s Top 10 Growth Industries

Posted by Bert Maes on January 5, 2010


The 10 fastest growing occupations, 2008-2018 – by Steve Tobak

  1. Biomedical engineers 72%
  2. Network systems and data communications analysts 53%
  3. Home health aides 50%
  4. Personal and home care aides 46%
  5. Financial examiners 41%
  6. Medical scientists 40%
  7. Physician assistants 39%
  8. Skin care specialists 37%
  9. Biochemists and biophysicists 37%
  10. Athletic trainers 37%

As you can see, eight of the ten are health related: home health care, services for elderly, nursing care facilities, offices of physicians,…

Steve Tobak believes that MANUFACTURING will shape our future:

George Friedman writes in his book “The next 100 years – a forecast for the 21st century“:

The single most important fact of the twenty-first century will be the end of the population explosion. During the 2020s the amount of retirees will be huge, resulting in a massive labor shortage. This shift will force us to increase productivity per worker, and as such force the world into a greater dependence on technology, particularly ROBOTS. (…) Professionals in the physical sciences, ENGINEERING, and health care will be the primary kinds of workers that are recruited.

I can’t agree more with Steve Tobak: MANUFACTURING i.e. robotics, sensors, 3D imaging, and new technology in general will play a big role in health care and lots of other industries.
