Which industries are set to boom in the coming year? RMIT recently published their list of fastest-growing industries in 2022. These were:
One of the fastest-growing industries today is healthcare. With an ageing population and advances in medical technology, there is a constant demand for qualified healthcare professionals. Nurses, doctors, and other medical staff are always in high demand, but there are also many non-clinical roles available such as administration and support staff.
Software & Analytics
With the ever-growing reliance on technology in both our personal and professional lives, IT professionals are in high demand to maintain and improve our systems. Software and analytics roles are some of the most in-demand jobs today, and that trend is only set to continue.
The Job Outlook for Software & Applications programmers predicts very strong growth over the next five years. They earn an average salary of around $2000 a week. We know that programming skills are becoming more and more in demand as it becomes a necessary tool for businesses. If you're investing in your education, a career in software and programming will put you in good stead in the future.
As robotics become increasingly integrated into our everyday lives, there is a constant demand for programmers and engineers. This includes everything from manufacturing robots to autonomous vehicles and drones. With a high potential for career progression and competitive salaries, this is an industry that's only going to grow in the coming years.
With more and more people shopping online, there is a constant need for new e-commerce specialists to manage and grow businesses. Online businesses benefited from Covid-19 lockdowns and saw massive growth in product demand. According to the Australia Post 2022 eCommerce Industry Report, in 2021 Australians spent $62.3 billion on online physical goods. This number, which made up 19.3% of total retail sales, is expected to rise in 2022 as the shift from in-person to online shopping continues.
The boom in e-commerce provides an excellent opportunity for professionals to find jobs in this rapidly growing industry. Jobs in e-commerce cover a wide array of roles from marketing, business management and copywriting, to software development, programming and IT support.
Another industry seeing significant growth following the pandemic is construction. The construction industry requires professionals in a range of roles including planners, project managers and tradespeople such as carpenters, plumbers, electricians and more.
The Australian Government's Job Outlook on Construction highlights the vast range of skilled trades employed by this large industry. The main entry pathway for many of these roles is through traineeships and apprenticeships.
