They have a lot of good thinking (and statistical data) behind why categories like real estate and energy should be prepared for big change in 2017.

Here’s a quick look at the industries they call out:

  1. Mobile banking – might companies like Square inspire customers to go bankless?
  2. Live sports – as more people cut the cable, how will live sports leverage streaming services?
  3. Real estate – tech startups and new stakes are changing the real estate game.
  4. Energy – 86% of America’s energy supply still comes from coal, gas, or nuclear power plants, but that might change this year.
  5. Athletic equipment – gear is getting smarter, but needs to protect athletes’ heads better.

Read the whole article for more insight, and consider how these trends impact your organization and career development.
