Growing E-Business Markets

E-Business entrepreneurs are always looking for new markets, so here are a few examples of growing markets.

It is no surprise that the baby boomers will soon be retiring but what is surprising is the growth of the age 55+ population’s use of the Internet. More then ever, this 55+ group is using the Internet and many are making e-commerce purchases. Another area of growth is in the size of North Americans market. North Americans have been steadily getting larger due to the plentiful diet of food. This has caused a specialty market to emerge and some e-businesses are already cashing in.

Bob Tedeschi (2006). “ Older Consumers Flex Their Muscle (and Money) Online“. Retrieved June 13, 2006, the article discuses (includes statistics) the Internet usage increase by the 55+ age group. (Free NY Times reg. req.)

Krysten Crawford (2006). “ Fat America: A big opportunity“. Retrieved June 13, 2006, the article discuses the size increase of Americans and the changes that existing products have made and the opportunity for new products. This article includes some very good e-business examples.
