Do you think about owning a business where you have flexibility in your schedule and where you physically work? And, more importantly, do you think about having a business where you “run the show?” Having an internet business is a great way to accommodate the work life you may be looking for! More than ever, people are looking for options to produce income and maintain the freedom to travel, have appointments during the day, and spend more time with friends and family. Owning your own online business allows you to have that freedom!
Are you a dad who would love the option of staying at home with the children? Are you a baby-boomer who is looking toward retirement and embarking on your “second act?” Do you long to travel? Do you think about all the places you want to go, the cultures you want to experience, but don’t have the time? Whatever the reason you have for wanting to become your own boss, owning an online business gives you a flexible schedule and the option of virtually working anywhere there is an internet connection.
Pure-Ecommerce has a variety of online businesses you may have an interest in; in this post we are highlighting 4 trending, growing online industries—Emergency Preparedness, Outdoor Sports & Recreation, Furniture and Fitness. You may find the one that is “just right” for you!

Emergency Preparedness

We live in a world where emergency situations can happen at any time and we need to be prepared. Such natural occurrences like hurricanes, wild fires, tornadoes and floods (to name just a few) require us to have emergency plans and supplies ready. Common risks abound like having a power transformer go out in your neighborhood causing you to be without power for a period of time, or having an emergency on the road that may have you stranded for a while.
Add in the stress people are feeling due to the global political environment and you find many people are worried and want to be ready in the event of an emergency need. In the 2009 Newsweek article, “Rise of the Preppers: America’s New Survivalists” Jessica Bennett writes, “Researchers say that interest in survivalism can often be a barometer of social anxiety; and in many cases, says sociologist Richard Mitchell, it can be a response to modern stress.”
Here’s some interesting stats we wanted to share with you about this growing market…..

The emergency preparedness retail business is growing, and especially those businesses that are selling online. Online stores that provide products in emergency and disaster preparedness, homeland security, as well as, camping and outdoor survival are experiencing escalating sales. Could this be a business that interests you? If so, take a look at our internet businesses for sale.

Outdoor Sports and Recreation

One of the industries we have found to grow continually each year is Outdoor Sports and Recreation. The outdoor activities market includes hiking, camping, fishing and hunting. It also includes sports such as basketball, football and soccer. According to the Outdoor Industry Association, in their “The Outdoor Recreation Economy report,” roughly 140 million Americans make outdoor recreation a priority and the sector increased 5% per year from 2005 to 2011. Outsideonline.com asserts that “the outdoor lifestyle is experiencing a historic moment of trendiness.”
The statistics behind three outdoor recreation markets—camping, hunting and fishing, and outdoor sports equipment—show this to be a growing market. For more information, take a look at our previous article, “Sports and Outdoor Recreation is Big Business”. Consumers are turning to online stores to find a diverse collection of necessities and gear to have on their next outdoor adventure. Here’s a few additional statistics we would like to share with you on this area……

With warm weather just around the corner, now is a great time to offer an ecommerce option for those people who are more than ready to get outside and get their hiking, camping, fishing, and other activity going!

Furniture

For quite some time now, we have seen a strong online furniture industry. An article in FurnitureToday.com cited that “8 out of 10 overall consumers have purchased home furnishings online,” specifically identifying the baby-boomers and generation-x as the demographics who are purchasing.
The real estate market is continuing to grow stronger. According to Global Property Guide in their article “U.S. Housing Market Remains Surprisingly Robust,” the U.S. housing market remains strong after five years of strong house price growth. “Demand is strengthening, and residential construction activity is rising. And, the National Association of Realtors reports that existing home sales are at the highest level since 2006. With that growth, the furniture and home décor products markets grow also. Strength in home sales is a very good sign for the furniture industry as a whole. Here are some additional statistics to take note of……

Fitness

Anything related to the Fitness industry is a growing ecommerce segment. Products such as nutrition, health foods, clothing and accessories show tremendous growth projections in the future. The fitness industry has been on our top online business list for several years, and there is no sign of it going away.
We found there are several reasons for strong growth in this industry—everything from the aging baby boomers embarking on a healthy lifestyle to people looking for natural alternatives to expensive drugs.
According to the article “Dietary Supplements Market to Reach $278.02 Billion by 2024” on grandviewresearch.com, “The market was worth USD 19.17 billion in 2015 and is projected to witness growth at a CAGR of 9.5% from 2016 to 2024.” That is tremendous growth! A couple of reasons cited in the article are:
  • The medical nutrition market, especially for treatment of malnutrition and cardiovascular disorders
  • The sports nutrition products, due to the increasing prevalence of fitness and sports
The Forbes article, “Nutritional Supplements Flexing Muscles as Growth Industry, states that the nutritional supplement group also known as Vitamins, Minerals, and Supplements (VMS) is “one of the fastest growing industries in the world.” The author also writes that the demographics are both men and women who are the consumers in this industry, with women spending more money than before.
Additionally, a related fitness subindustry that is growing as an ecommerce business is fitness-related clothing, primarily in the female market but not exclusively. Clothing for running, yoga, working out, and casual attire that has an athletic look is experiencing a growth trend.
