At Envest, we believe that proactiveness in investing is crucial, as it ensures appropriate and relevant information is gathered to ensure maximum profitability. In this guide, we take a closer look at some of the most popular investment sectors in 2024, which can be useful when developing financial strategies and finding new sources of income.

Globally, total AI and ML investment is expected to reach $184+ billion by 2024. At the same time, the green technology and sustainability market are expected to grow at a CAGR of 28+%, with the next five-year plan aiming for a 46% growth rate.

These figures show the growing trend of the major areas that are expected to shape the investment platform and open up immense possibilities for investors who will embrace future investments.

1. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

Investors and consumers alike are all in for the next generation of artificial intelligence and machine learning. These technologies are not only changing existing sectors but also opening up new opportunities for various businesses. Out of all the varying AI types, generative AI is poised to transform productivity and output.

Research shows that companies that invest in AI get a 30% boost in productivity. AI’s ability to increase productivity is getting much investment, especially from large-scale technological companies. For example, Google and Microsoft have huge budgets for investing in artificial intelligence, which puts them right on the crest of this wave of change.

2. Sustainability and Clean Technology

Sustainability is no longer an add-on but the name of the game, a major focus area in investment planning. The interest in clean technology is rising, given that it is supported by economic benefits and legal relations.

Two critical policies that advance green investment are the Inflation Reduction Act within the United States and the EU Green Deal. Some of these policies are estimated to unlock as much as trillions of dollars in investments in renewable energy, electric cars, and other green technologies.

The annual installation of wind energy capacity is expected to reach 53 GW by 2024, with renewable energy investments at $4 trillion globally. Electric and hybrid vehicles are another area where many players are investing, and some of them are developing promising solar, wind, and hydrogen technologies. 

Further, investments in supply chain and grid technology development are essential for where clean technology investments are being directed. This transition lends itself to an enriching and sustainable future in which reaping benefits from sustainable investments and profit interchange with responsibility for the environment.

3. Supply Chain Resilience

Whether through major health crises such as the current COVID-19 or political factors like the Sino-U.S. trade war, disruptions have brought out the importance of having diverse and resilient supply chains. Business entities are actively developing online concepts such as friend-shoring and multi-source diversification to avoid the high risks inherent in high dependency, specifically in China.

Improvements in information technologies, which underpinned supply chain investments in the past, are being taken to the next level with the concern of visibility, speed, and agility. There are good reasons for global supply chain development to look at emerging economies and switch playing fields anew. Blockchain and IoT are contributing significantly to providing supply chains and organizational leadership with clear visibility of supply chain trends in future disruptions.

4. Healthcare and Biotech Innovation

Human biotechnology and healthcare technology are now becoming major breakthroughs and are redefining medical science. New technologies and the availability of funds for medical research and development are yielding advanced approaches to precision medicine, home health technologies, and bioscience therapies. With new products coming on the market and new technologies being developed, the global biotech market is expected to be valued at $4.25 trillion by the year 2033 through the advancement of technologies in genetic modification, cancer treatments, and enabled health technologies.

Investors are always searching for potential opportunities that have products and services in targeted innovative sectors such as pharma, medical equipment, and biotechnology, specifically in the discovery of new treatments and innovative solutions to address unmet medical needs. For instance, some areas of interest include CRISPR technology and the mRNA vaccines, where many investments are being placed into. The pandemic also nourished the concept of digital health solutions hence telemedicine and remote patient monitoring will be the future growth areas.

5. Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and Blockchain

DeFi, or decentralized finance, is a new concept that advocates abolishing centralized financial institutions in favor of more secure and transparent blockchain systems. The DeFi market is predicted to reach $70.3 billion by 2027, up from its value of $9.4 billion in 2021, due to the growing acceptance of cryptocurrencies and Blockchain technology.

The use of blockchain technology is not only limited to crypto-currency but also supply chain management, healthcare distribution, and, above all, identification verification. Cryptocurrency is currently trendy due to NFTs (non-fungible tokens) and digital assets, which tend to be volatile; hence, they are gaining popularity as investment alternatives. Changes in investment legislation have brought about DeFi and blockchain solutions that promise to reshape the future of finance while offering more capital options.
