1. Organic farming.
As more and more people realize he dangers of chemical fertilizer and processed foods, organic farming will take off.
2. Packaged drinking water. This industry(if you can call it one) is going to grow.
3. Oil & gas. While the world continues to explore the mass potential of alternative sources of energy, this is one sector that has not run out of steam yet. Until such a time that alternative energy sources can be harnessed and utilized in an economically viable way for the masses.
4. Medicines. Actually pharma research.

While the world continues to concern itself with the industrial boom the final result is impending doom.

Health Care/Wellness: Basically health care is tipped to be the first Trillion Dollar Industry- read The Wellness Revolution
Clearly with the lifestyle that we are having, especially in the urban cities, need for wellness products is increasing. Just look at the number of lifestyle disorders. India is going to be the Diabetes capital of the world and 20% of all heart patients will be in india by 2010 was told by WHO in 2007.

Insurance: Its a HUGE opportunity. Developed nations have insurance as a MUST. India has just 2% people insured while around the world the numbers are in the high 60-70%.

There are others like infrastructure and retail. Tier 2 and 3 cities have HUGE potential still in building roads, commercial complexes etc. But the top 2 are listed above

Healthcare & Insurance seem like very good bets with only a handful of players and very low rural penetration levels.

While this is a great discussion - how do we take it to the next level? Investors/Contacts/Specialists?

Any scope of a Business Development sub-forum within our members @TBHP?

Wonderful response to the thread,

Most of u have ignored infrastructure, what with Pranab Mukherjee giving almost half of the Plan allocation funds this budget for infrastructure,
If anyone of you are in road-building equipment & allied industries, the partys' just going to start

This sector also need very strict guidance and rules regulation. GOVT needs some centralize DB access for this for all kind of insurance...

my 2 cents

1. agriculture : lesser people would be engaged in tilling lesser land with better technologies. this will lead to better yield and better prices.

2. Orange Juice : Just like everyday male office goers shave every day to work, I feel more and more people will start their day with a glass of orange juice

3. Mobile based applications : More and more people will spend more and more time with their mobile handsets.

Infratructure - We have a long way to go...(Indirect benefits goes direct to Automobile Industry - Mechanical - Electronics)
Hotel Industry - I know a Coffee Day, close to HUNSUR (A Small tier 3/4 town in Karnataka) along the SH en route to Madikeri from blore makes good profit.
Hospitality - Its crowded, however if done well, ROI is good.
Alternative energy / Electronics / Hardware / Energy Saving - A huge requirement, but very expensive thoughts
Insurance for every sector - Its a huge market, however the investment is again very very high.

Ideally the next boom should happen in Hospitality / Infra / Alternative Energy...

I would love to open small guest houses in Hampi / Mysore / Madikeri / Chikmnglr / Shimoga / Bellary (KA), if I had the money! astonishingly I still see most of the hotel rooms are occupied / crowded during every weekend in all these towns, considering you take the season & off season I would easily say there is an avg 80% - 90% - 100% occupancy rate in all these towns

healthcare..because everyone is unwell (in one way or other). we just have to create the awareness and people will jump in.
look at - evening clinics, fast track surgeries, diet programs (there is diet restaurant in hyd), in india, it is mainly concentrated on the heart. infertility is going crazy these days (some god-mans have had gala time).
