Posted: 5th August 2021 08:58

If you’re planning on starting your own business or you’re confused about which industry is worth investing your time and money in the present situation, you can consider keeping an eye on these 6 industries where business is booming and will continue to grow in the post-pandemic world of 2021. Let’s dive right into it!

Online Floral Industry

Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, graduation, baby-shower, bridal-shower, or any possible event or function you can think of, flowers have become the easiest and best gift that’s been gifted this year. The best part is that with almost 90% of the events and programs taking place online, most people prefer having their flowers delivered to their recipients through online floral stores. Online flower delivery has thus become the quickest and best way to send your love over to someone, even if you can’t make it there in person. 

But these are just some of the reasons for why this industry is booming this year! Another major factor is that with everyone’s mental health taking a toll with lockdowns and remote work becoming common, people are doing their best to lighten up their homes and workplaces with greenery, which includes tonnes of flowers! Needless to say, there's even a study going on regarding the therapeutic properties of flowers, now known as “flower therapy” which an increasing number of people have started showing interest in. If you’re planning to start a floral business then there’s no better time than right now!

Software Industries

Needless to say, being under lockdown and being prevented from leaving your homes have made people increasingly dependent on technology to stay connected to the rest of the world. Whether you’re a student, a teacher, work a regular 9-5, or even a gym instructor or music teacher, there’s a high chance that you’ve started using a minimum of 3 to 4 different digital products that help you engage and work remotely with your clients and team. With remote work and education becoming the norm for yet another year, the software industry is booming by creating tech that helps people simplify their remote social lives. 

Tools like Google Classroom, Zoom, Slack, Asana, Zoho Cliq, and Trello are just some of the tools that have become the most used tools by employees and big companies this year. So if you’re a software designer or developer then this could be your chance to invent or invest in a tool that’s bound to be used by the quickly adapting remote world of today.


Though this technically comes under the previous heading, we’re giving it a separate mention just because it’s a niche that’s bound to blow up more (though it already has) in the coming months. With students and employees from around the world being stuck at home and experiencing a united feeling of feeling lost or unclear about what the tomorrow has in store for them, education technology has become a means for them to continue improving themselves and expanding their knowledge and skills though they can’t physically pursue their dreams in the outside world. 

If you’re an educator, or if you have a skill that you can share and teach to the world, then you can consider investing your time in such tech as it’s bound to get people’s attention and help you grow this year.

Online Shopping

Apart from Amazon, many other online shopping sites saw massive growth in the last year given that people were completely dependent on online platforms to get their basic necessities each day. Not much has changed since last year, and the online shopping sector is going to see another rise in consumption this year as most people have become familiar and comfortable with shopping for almost anything and everything online.


This is a no-brainer. There’s bound to be an increase in people’s awareness and attention to general health and well-being during a pandemic, which is the reason why pharma and healthcare industries have continued to see huge success and growth over the past few months. The pandemic may eventually get better sooner or later, but people are bound to be careful for many years to come with regard to their physical health and nutrition!

Mental Health and Therapy

We finally come to one sector that has become popular this year, after the aftermath of the lockdowns and sudden changes which affected almost everyone last year. Mental health went for a toss with people losing touch with friends and loved ones for months together, and many people started practicing different forms of therapy as a means of overcoming their feelings of depression and anxiety. 

There’s almost 6 types of self-therapy that have become popular this year, including talking, dancing, floral therapy, and so many more. If you’ve got a product or service which can contribute to helping people improve their mental wellbeing at the moment then there’s definitely room for you to begin, grow, and flourish as you help heal the world!
