Many people don’t realize that businessmen actually consider the general weather of a particular location if ever they contemplate setting up shop there. It’s not just the presence of the target market that makes a business successful. Other factors like accessibility of location, and yes, weather, can also affect the sales pull of any commercial establishment.
Now, it is generally considered an advantage if the location has a tropical weather all year round. Notice that when it’s raining or snowing, most would rather stay at home instead of braving the wet and cold. People tend to be in the mood to go out regularly and spend their money on things and activities that can be enjoyed in this type of weather.
We’re talking about clothes, shoes, bags, even cars. Entrepreneurs selling summer apparel will be able to sell their wares all year round. Luxury cars and convertibles will be useless in a wintry location (which is the same for basically most of the affordable and functional models today).
Agricultural businesses also thrive in tropical weather. Produce and livestock tend to grow better and multiply faster.
There are more things you can do and enjoy outdoors when it’s warm and sunny. That also means more opportunities for businessmen to sell services and amenities. Examples of these businesses are outdoor and sports adventure tours (hiking, trekking), beach resorts, food carts along the street, flower shops, outdoor night markets, and many more.
It is also safer to conduct most services when everything’s not wet from rain or snow. Examples of jobs that are less dangerous in tropical weather are those in the electrical services, welding, transportation (land, water and air), couriers and cargo, and so forth. Minimum risks mean reduced liability and expense for businessmen.
