The Biggest Trends in Business for 2013

Market research firm Parks Associates reports that the digital health technology market will be worth $5.7 billion by 2015--up from $1.7 billion in 2010--with chronic care, wellness and medication management leading the charge. Meanwhile, consultancy ABI Research estimates that sales of wearable wireless health-monitoring devices will grow from less than 3 million units in 2011 to 36 million by 2017, pushed by rapid growth in the senior in-home care market.

Early players in the mobile-health space include Happtique, an app-management company that helps healthcare professionals integrate digital technologies into their treatment programs, and Proteus Digital Health, inventors of a sand-grain-size ingestible sensor that monitors physiological and behavioral metrics from within a patient's body.The Rise of Big DataDomestic Production Makes a ComebackThe Workspace of the FutureManagers Who Understand the Importance of Goofing OffBeauty Seekers Favor 'Cosmeceuticals'Hot Sauce Goes MainstreamEnergy Drink Market Gets a Boost From Young ConsumersHealth Care Goes DigitalUsing Transparency to Build Consumer TrustUnique Vending Machines Drive Stagnate Industry ForwardCreative Financing Grows in Popularity.
