Investors looking at the Mediterranean markets with fresh eyes often need direction signs to identify opportunities. This pack provides a first list of 25 sub-sectors and niche markets both invested by pioneers and qualified as attractive and sustainable by the ANIMA Intelligence team. Next to the mainstream investment projects in real estate, mass tourism or banking, those niches prefigure tomorrow's MED economic landscape. They cover both traditional sectors (textile, tourism, etc.) and new activities (facility management, integrated logistics, vocational & educational training, etc.).


The ANIMA team has selected these sub-sectors by considering the needs and strengths of the region and its economic positioning. New investment in the identified fields should therefore help:

  • add value or differentiating features to sub-sectors facing a fierce international competition (technical textiles, tourist diversification, agro-transformation, etc.);
  • develop entirely new activities, thanks to new technologies or opportunities offered by the economic globalisation (3D modeling, offshore web design, health tourism, etc.);
  • create new green markets in the Mediterranean, addressing the needs of a rapid urban growth and accompanying the ongoing industrial take-off (energy efficiency, social housing, waste management, environmental studies, etc.).
