In this article, we’ve collected 150 the most needed future business ideas for 2030-2050.
As we believe, new technologies and new inventions are the future and the most profitable fields in business.
Currently, out of 10 richest people in the world, 7 are people who have earned billions thanks to the Internet, innovation and focus on future solutions. Without the latest technological advances, these people wouldn’t be where they are today.
That is why now, when new, emerging industries are being born, one should realize that those who make the best use of technology, new niches and discoveries of the future will most likely be the new richest people of the world.
THE MOST NEEDED FUTURE BUSINESS IDEAS
1. VR COMMUNITIES, GROUPS, GAMES, SPORT AND EDUCATION
VR is a niche greater and wider than it may seem. In addition to unlimited possibilities of creating games in VR technology, it will be possible to apply it to many other areas of life. Examples are rehabilitation, learning new skills and education, coaching, networking, VR conferences, clubs, organizations with their members meeting in VR.
2. JET PACKS & FLYING ACCESSORIES PRODUCTION, SALE & RENTAL
Flying like a bird was the eternal dream of people. Now it is possible and already there are quite a few companies that sell jet packs and other types of flying devices. Examples of jet packs businesses are jetpacks production and sale, jetpacks rental, jetpacks flying schools, jetpacks flying sports (like a quidditch from Harry Potter), as well as providing services using jetpacks (such as pruning trees, cleaning gutters, transporting tourists to mountain tops, or to uninhabited islands at sea etc.).
3. QUANTUM COMPUTERS PRODUCTION, SALE, RENTAL & SERVICES
Quantum computers will revolutionize many computational domains. Just as the invention of the computer started the IT revolution and led to the creation of the mobile phones and Internet, just as quantum computers will allow for the computational revolution, the effects of which are so far hard to imagine. The basic difference between computers and quantum computers is that old computers based their calculations on bits. The bit could have a value of 1 or 0. Quantum computers rely on qubits. The qubit values can have values not only 1 or 0, but except for 0 or 1, they have a full range of intermediate values.
An example of a company that creates quantum computers is D-Wave Systems.
4. WEAPONS FOR DEACTIVATING ROBOTS (PRODUCTION AND SALE)
Humanity is already on the verge of creating robots based on artificial intelligence. This is associated with huge opportunities, but also with an endless threat to the existence of humanity.
By creating something that could potentially destroy humanity, be prepared for the worst case scenarios. Therefore, along with the development of work on AI and robots, the development of work on techniques for their deactivation, control, destruction and defense against them will develop. A robot deactivating weapon will be needed not only for the army and police, but will also be useful for private individuals – who want to defend themselves against spy robots or robot-robbers (entering the garden and home through the chimney, sewer pipes, ajar windows, or ventilation pipes, and other even the smallest gaps).
5. ROBOTS PRODUCTION, REPAIR, ACCESSORIES & RENTAL
A huge niche that will be used in every area of life. An example of large business niches related to robots are: robots taking care of disabled, children and elderly, house and garden cleaning robots, robots repairing all kinds of defects and destruction and also a whole range of different robots that will replace different professions and different work done by people.
Both production and sales, programming, plugins and operating systems for such robots will be a huge new niche in business. Robot rentals, courses and trainings in robot operation and management, as well as companies offering the services of entire teams of robots that will be able to perform tasks such as house construction, infrastructure, space bases in the group faster and cheaper will certainly become an important new type of business. or help during disasters and natural disasters.
6. LAB-GROWN HUMAN BODY PARTS
People are willing to pay any money for longer lives and health. Because the human body is aging and undergoing mechanical diseases and injuries, replacing organs with new ones will be necessary for a longer life. There are various organs growing plans. One of them is organs printing (almost like in a 3D printer).
7. LONG LIVE MEDICINE AND PHARMACY
With the development of science, people live longer. Extending life, however, involves the need to perform certain medical procedures and operations. The most important elements of long-live medicine are probably: restoration of damaged tissues, creating and implanting artificial body parts (e.g. artificial uterus), implants and prostheses,
8. ELDERLY CARE
The demand for this type of service arises as a result of the phenomenon of aging population. Home care for the elderly, food delivery, cooking and catering, physical activities and rehabilitation with a trainer or physiotherapist, or technical assistance and assistance in dealing with everyday matters are examples of businesses for this niche.
9. SPACE “FEDEX” – SPACE DELIVERY SERVICES
Product shipment from Earth to space and back. Maritime and air communications have played a key role in globalization. Thanks to air, sea and land transport, it is possible to provide many valuable goods and international trade. The transport on the Earth-Space line will also play a great role. We already know in space that there is a mass of valuable goods such as elements, gold, fuel, etc. The key to their exploitation, however, is effective interplanetary transport.
10. VERTICAL FARMING
Vertical farming is the answer to the increasing population density on earth, and also probably the best way to grow food in the future in space, underground, underwater or in bases on other planets. An example of future farming can also be microgreens production. They can be grown even in a basement without the sun, using lamps, as in this film.
11. CYBER SECURITY
As more and more money, businesses, work and information is on the internet, there is a growing demand for cyber security. Internet crime is often so advanced that you need protection from specialists to protect yourself from it. Examples of services and businesses related to cyber security are: Protection of private data, the service of cleaning private data in various websites, protecting databases, computers, smartphones, IT systems, as well as the protection of applications and devices that have access to the Internet. Various types of security programs as well as encryption programs and technologies that prevent access will also meet increasing demand and will be worth more.
12. PLASTIC RECYCLING
Imagine a device that turns all plastic garbage into ready-to-use pieces of plastic ready to be printed from them in 3D printers. Or imagine a device into which you throw in used plastic, which instead produces new, clean carrier bags, or plastic cutlery. These types of examples are only a small part of the possibilities and potential of plastic recycling. Recycled plastic can be a valuable commodity. Considering how much “free” plastic is currently in the oceans themselves, it can be said that plastic is a free raw material that is just waiting to be collected, processed and sold for profit.
There are many usages for blockchain technology. Thanks to it, we can create securely encrypted messaging apps, it is widely used in banking, where it is useful for increasing accuracy and facilitating the transmission of information. Other uses for blockchain are securing critical infrastructure, voting over the internet, and finally, it is primarily used in cryptocurrencies.
14. MEDICAL EQUIPMENT SALE AND MANUFACTURING

17. HIGH QUALITY ORGANIC FOOD
In recent years, food has become very cheap but the quality has also declined as farming has become intensive, often placing the emphasis on quantity rather than quality. For this reason, as more and more business analysts predict, healthy high quality organic food will be one of the most important and profitable future business ideas. More and more people are aware of what they eat and attach importance to the quality of what they eat. For this reason, in recent years we have seen a surge in the popularity of healthy natural foods. Businesses that have a great chance to succeed in this area in the future include: health food stores and organic delicatessens, organic fast food, organic restaurants and food trucks, organic food subscription and food boxes, as well as apparatus and tools and research services that allow you to examine the quality of given food and products.
