3 Markets With Incredible Potential For Future Growth


Emerging markets are proving incredible potential for future growth, particularly those that remain unaffected by the COVID-19 pandemic. An emerging market is a market that has some characteristics of a developed market – but not yet meeting full standards due to its infancy. They are therefore typically considered as high risk despite predictions of exponential growth. 

#1 CryptoCurrency

Despite launching on the scene in 2009, Cryptocurrency and more specifically Bitcoin has been a popular topic among investors. The broad bitcoin and cryptocurrency market, made up of thousands of digital tokens, is now worth a staggering $1.6 trillion. [1] (February 2021)

In 2011, 12-year-old Erik Finman invested a birthday gift of $1,000 into bitcoin and is now a multimillionaire. Proving its lucrative beginning as a potential market to invest in. 

Alike any market, it has experienced turbulence and it’s important to remember that the future for Cryptocurrency isn’t always golden… The decline in Bitcoin, in fact, knocked Elon Musk off the top spot as the richest person in the world as it fell from an all-time high of $55,000 per Bitcoin to just under $46,000 at the time of writing. [2] This resulted in Musk losing a total of $4.6B. 

#2 Pre-IPO Cannabis 

The legal cannabis market is not valued as high as Bitcoin (yet!) but is destined for big things. 

The global cannabis market size was valued at USD 17.5 billion in 2019 and predicted to reach market value around USD 65.1 billion by 2027 expanding at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 17.8% during the period 2020 to 2027. [3]

London has recently been labelled the “Cannabis Capital” after 2 company’s debut as the first cannabis listing on the LSE. Israeli company Kanobo Group listed in February and its share price rocketed over 170% on the day and continued to rise over 120% the next day. [4] This is just the beginning of some very profitable cannabis listings. 

This is a prime example of the potential that pre-IPO cannabis opportunities can bring to investors, grasping an early bird opportunity before listing on the stock exchange is where you will maximise returns and multiply your initial investment. 

#3 Real Estate Property

Considered a “safe” form of investment and very popular among investors old, young and particularly those less educated about surrounding markets. Since the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, UK house prices jump at the fastest rate in four years [5] The cost of a typical detached home had soared by 6%, or £27,371 on average. [5]

Although generating positive returns toward the latter end of 2020, since the introduction of a stamp duty holiday house prices fell for the first time at the start of 2021. This was by 0.3 per cent in January compared with the previous month, the first fall since June and down from a 0.9 per cent expansion in the previous month. [6]

Is the housing market as stable as other markets have proven to be in a global crisis? Which begs the question… where should you be investing your money in a time of such uncertainty? Industry experts declare the cannabis industry as ‘recession proof’ [7] and as demand increases, returns are intending to follow suit…
