A single person can’t make a megatrend, but can do innovate or invent something. When invention or innovation is followed by a large group of people for a long time, it becomes a megatrend.
For example, the use of Internet is a megatrend and so is the use of Facebook. A single person developed the Internet & Facebook. Internet is a megatrend because people around the world use it. It’s because Internet is useful, accessible, and reliable for every person on the planet earth.
Talking about Facebook, it became a megatrend because people started getting what they never expected. It became a part of the culture to talk with people who lived in another country but not with people who sat beside him/her. People talk on Facebook using Internet. Facebook is completely dependent on the trend of Internet. This is what innovation is. One trend leads to another.
Megatrends last for 7- 10 years or more than that.
When does a megatrends end?
In my opinion, a megatrend ends when people’s wants are changed or some other innovation/invention overtakes the previous innovation/invention. Scientists have discovered that “people can communicate with other people who live in another country without using any website like Facebook.” If this discovery becomes successful and viral in the world, then I think people will become less dependent on social networking sites.
Use of google will end if all data were in a single 4mm2 chip that is integrated in every device (mobiles, computer) as default.
To conclude, we can set a megatrend by providing facility/innovation/invention/discovery to global long-term needs.
