I'd say the 3 types of channels in highest demand for the time being are gaming, news, and cosmetics.
If you are looking to actually make a career as a YouTuber, you will have absolutely zero chance of making it big if you don't choose one of these 3 categories. Music won't cut it because Vevo monopolized YouTube for music related videos. If people search for music, they will watch Vevo. Same thing with the Fine Bros and reaction videos.
It would be difficult to make your own news channel, as most successful news channels are owned by a group of professionals - like ThinkTank for instance. But I've seen it done before, ie Keemstar. But if you think about it, his channel is more like gossip about other YouTubers than it is "news".
Gaming would be the easiest by far. Practically anyone with a non annoying voice, a good mic, and a pc fit for video games can pick up a popular game, run Fraps in the background, and upload several vids a day.
Cosmetics would be fairly easy too. Apparently there are a lot of girls taking advantage of YouTube to post makeup tutorials and product reviews. It is in high demand for teenage girls.
If you aren't good at any of those things, you could try vlogging, or making Vine-style videos (which I imagine will explode soon, now that Vine has shut down and people are desperate for entertainment).1
