Organic and plant-based skincare started out as a niche market that has since expanded to reach consumers all over the world. Market estimates show that the industry will be worth more than 25 billion within the next five years alone. Not only is this a great trend if you are in the skincare or cosmetics business, but it is also good for your health and the environment.
Elevation Masks For Training
You may have noticed a slew of professional athletes wearing strange-looking masks recently. While training masks are not new to sports, it is an emerging trend among non-professional health enthusiasts. For less than $100 you can purchase these masks to help boost your endurance while you train. These masks help the wearer to maximize their oxygen use and send more oxygen-rich blood to the respiratory muscles.
Earth Friendly Travel
All markets have been trending towards a steady shift of eco-friendly products and services over the last decade. When it comes to travel, the shift is more noticeable than any other niche. Global warming and climate change paired with inflation and fewer disposable incomes have led to more people choosing less wasteful ways to get around. One of the fastest-growing markets is eco-conscious travel and commuting which will only increase as the years go by.
Obesity and diabetes are two of the most prominent health issues facing the world today. With fewer people heading outside and getting active, more and more people are faced with health issues caused by being overweight. Though many people want to hit the gym, lack of time, energy, motivation or even embarrassment keep them from actually following through. With these things in mind, several new methods of exercise are being explored. Virtual reality is
already a hot topic and a few firms are taking this trend to the next level in the form of virtual gyms. You no longer will have to leave the comfort of your home to get a good guided workout.
Automation is a big topic in regular life and big business. Automation of tedious jobs such as sorting and packing is being given to robots and many jobs in regular life are also becoming automated. One of the recent innovations that have been circulating through social media is robotic pet sitters. These robots are devices that run on an app that is controlled by your phone or computer. The devices keep your cat or dog entertained while you are away for a short while. If you are tired of folding your clothes, there is also a robot to take care of this menial task for you. While it won’t wash your clothes for you, all you have to do is load it in one end and collect your folded items from the other. Pair these robots with the many other automation aids on the market and there is no end to what type of modern home you can create.
