With the needs of the world changing constantly, there are some key elements at any given time that are relied on heavily by a number of industries. Here are three of the main ones that are keeping our economy running.

Plastic

The first one is a mixed bag for the most part because of the state of the environment. With its improper distribution and disposal leaving a lot to be desired, there are still many things around that we have plastic to thank for. For instance, plastics have been used widely in agriculture since the 1940s and there are no signs that their use will slow down.

They’re critical to the economy, business, and are one of the most useful and advanced materials that have ever been created by humanity. The manufacture of new resins and development of new applications has met with advanced methods of recycling which promise to make this material even more beneficial to the world’s populations as time goes by.

Trees

The second resource that’s widely relied on is trees, whose industry likewise has undergone many changes over time. Bug infestations and diseases have caused a lot of damage over time but thanks to advancements in treatment and prevention of plant life in general, this has been put under control. With an expected growth of nearly 8% in the U.S. tree trimming service market in a five-year span from 2016 to 2021, it’s important to keep coming up with new and more efficient practices that will help people make the most of this limited commodity.

It’s important for people within the industry to find ways to remain profitable in the market while ensuring they follow the law and stay compliant. Since it’s a seasonal industry, it’s also crucial to know how to stay busy in the low seasons and also minimize the risk of injuries for workers due to the high-risk nature of the industry. With these issues out of the way, it’s possible to get into the industry and make headway, helping supply more trees to a world in constant need.

Data

The final resource that’s heavily relied on in the modern age is data. With the average daily data usage across the U.S. reportedly jumping from 12 GB in March 2019 to 16.6 GB in March 2020, it’s easy to see why. People spend a lot of time online and this has led to a 38% increase across every device category. For this reason, it’s important to make sure that data is in quality supply.

It’s also important for people to take measures to ensure that they don’t suffer the consequences of being online for the majority of their lives. Whether it’s for work or for entertainment, it’s important to exercise self-control as far as the internet is concerned as it can be a double-edged sword. It has made it possible for people all around the world to work and do business from the comfort of their homes. This has helped stabilize the finances of several people who may have otherwise been unable to get any income if not for online work. It has also made it possible for countless employers to have their needs met and get access to a workforce that’s more versatile and easier to maintain, making it a win for everyone.

In the modern age, these three resources are the most widely used, especially in big business industries. We should all do our best to ensure moderation is practiced so that the generations to come also have access to them. Even if the future’s needs will change, the resources we rely on heavily right now will be the foundation on which progress is made.
