What’s the Next Market Trend?

The Next Market Trend

After this week’s deep dive into the expected growth of the U.S. economy, someone asked me: “What’s next?” That’s the challenge, right? To always discover the next big market trend ahead of the herd. It sounds simplistic, but I offered my world view.

“Human beings create the problems. Technology solves them.” I don’t think you need me to explain the importance of technology when it comes to manmade problems.

The last year was evidence of that never-ending trend. Humans mismanaged a massive biological crisis. And biotechnology firms answered the bell to develop vaccines in record time. If this success doesn’t speak to my thesis, then nothing does.

The Next Market Trend after COVID-19

We have a freshwater crisis brewing across the Southwest of the United States. We have supply chain challenges created by poor forecasting during COVID. We have a lack of available drivers to bring crops out of fields during the upcoming corn harvest.

Yet, with all these brewing problems, there are technology solutions emerging. Some are in their infancy. Others are reaching critical mass. And I encourage you to think back across your life at the big and little challenges you had. You didn’t even know you had a few of them until after the fact.

What has the role of a smartphone, computer, GPS system, and other technology played on your life? I remain very bullish on the future of the economy due to our technological progress.

I also remain very bullish on the cybersecurity investments. This tech must strengthen and protect our supply chains, businesses, and personal data. It is an incredible time to be alive.

Don’t let temporary bad news keep you from seeing the bigger opportunities and potential.
