For the last 30 years, there has been a substantial shift from the primary and secondary sectors to the tertiary sector (service sector) in industrialized countries. The tertiary sector is now the largest sector of the economy in the Western world, and is also the fastest-growing sector. China and India are predicted to account for more than 91 per cent of regional retail sales in 2011, and by 2015 their share of the regional market is expected to be at least 93 per cent. Sub sectors like the freight trucking area should remain in demand due to cost effectiveness and convenience.
