Which Industry Will Be Next Big Thing Just Like Silicon Valley Boom In 90's???

i mean industry that will provide huge wealthy oppurtunities just like silicon valley boom in 90's.could it be renewable energy,genetic engineering,materials engineering,nanotechnology,space construction or anything else???i know renewable energy made a couple of billionaires in china lately.

Renewable energy. Cap and trade is about to pass in America along with many other G7 countries.

What do you mean jump into the game? You mean finding a degree in a renewable energy related field?

Future Prospect.Anyway,what are the other industries that have potentials ?
 
The Next Trillionaire Industries????(Serious)

which would be the next trillionaire industries in the future just like how internet and telecommunication boom were in 90's???

posibillities:
nanotechnology/materials science
genetic engineering
renewable energy
nuclear fusion
robotics
quantum
military hardware
space travel
automation
wireless energy
another computer/software/internet/etc boom?
transportation(exp:everyone owns a private jet?)
artificial intelligence
applied mechanics
virtual world
graphene
green revolution?
anything else????

lets discuss here so that we may become the next billionaires.im an aspirin succesful entrepreneur.

English is your friend when your an aspiring (aspirin is a drug) entrepreneur.

The fossil fuel industry in the US is worth about $1 trillion annually. About a third to half of that money leaves the country, depending on the price of crude.

Some sort of novel transportation revolution is needed. Alot of time is wasted behind a steering wheel when commuting in a car. Increasingly people are utilizing this time doing other things, and as a result increase the risk of an accident, and do a poorer job at whatever they are doing. An energy efficient smart car with autopilot would solve the problem, and buy more time for commuters to utilize. It would reduce traffic accidents, and kill any DUIs.

A few of those aren't even industries. For example, "quantum". Quantum what? Automation, robotics, applied mechanics, and virtual world are all very vague as well. Military hardware is already a trillion dollar business annually around the world.

Medicine and Energy will always be huge. "virtual world?" I know that World of Warcraft can be addicting to some people, but I don't think we, as a people, are THAT pathetic.

I think he means Quantum Computation.

Robotics and artificial intelligence. And then Homo Sapiens will become obsolete technology, so it will also be the end of us.
 
Re: Which Industry Will Be Next Big Thing Just Like Silicon Valley Boom In 90's???

I think quantum technologies. i know that is ambiguous but I think people start to engineer more and more using quantum techniques. I think the next century alot of people will be doing some pretty cool things with it. Quantum computers for instance I think is where it might start.

Think incremental, where efficiencies could be key. Graphene nano-components, for instance, if you are interested in supplanting silicone in chips.

If you are a thinking of CE, you might do well to follow the University of Maine. They have recently come up with a way to produce tubes of carbon composites, inflate them, coat them with resins, fill the tubes with concrete and build bridges on-site quickly with limited resources. Sometimes it takes a fresh look at existing tech to create the leverage.

Re: The Next Trillionaire Industries????(Serious)

since there are already a bunch of start ups in renewable energy industry,do you people think there still have chances to jump into the game?

Sure. It doesn't matter if it bunk and bogus. It can still make a profit. Probably not a trillion, though. Does that matter to ya?

Government agenda to generate more revenue by cap and trade through climate change.

OK. I'll get serious. You suggested military hardware. Try military software. Not in the trillions, but high millions or billions.

Yes, we have a long way to go. With a trillion dollars in annual revenues in the balance, there are plenty of pieces of the pie.

The hard part is picking the winners and losers.

The price of crude oil, which jumped from $60 a barrel, to $140 a barrel, in eighteen months, has been the main driver. It has been said by industry experts that one missile attack on an oil tanker, by Iran, for example, or perhaps terrorists, could drive the price of crude to $200 a barrel, virtually overnight. Solving the energy problem is now a matter of national security. Beyond that are issues like climate change.

We are currently depleting US wealth to the tune of half a trillion dollars a year by importing crude oil. Oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens, billionare, calls this the largest transfer of wealth in history! This creates the opportunity to keep the money in the US by attaining energy independence, creating millions of jobs in the process.

It is also true that crude prices have risen to such a level that other options like biodiesel are competitive. When petrodiesel hit three dollars a gallon - about the required sales price for biodiesel to be competitive - biodiesel began to sell. When petrodiesel was selling for $2 a gallon, it was pretty tough to sell biodiesel for $3.

Also, the demand for energy from China and India is expected to "explode". The next world war may well be over oil if we don't address the problem before it gets out of hand.

Mirko Mikelic, an Analyst at Fifth Third Bank, told the news provider: "The Chinese auto market is going to explode exponentially over the next five to ten years.

"They have an untapped consumer base that is constantly growing, so I don't think it would surprise most people that China is expected to surpass the United States in the next ten years."

A range of incentives and tax cuts introduced in Beijing earlier this year contributed to the increased sales performance but China also has another major advantage over the US.

While the US market is now largely saturated, China has 1.3 billion people - which accounts for a fifth of the world's population - with the potential for a much higher ownership ratio.

As Credit Suisse Analyst Hung Bin Toh wrote in a recent research report quoted by the news provider, car ownership in the country could increase fivefold to 148 cars per 1,000 residents by 2020...
http://www.platinum.matthey.com/media_room/china_auto_market_to_quotexplode_exponentiallyquot_in_next_ten_years_19262184.html

...meaning that China could add over 100 million gas-hungry cars to the roads over the next ten years. We have about 250 million passenger vehicles in the US right now, and we use about 24% of the worlds oil.

Isn't a large portion of that uptrend do to market speculation?
