2021 Outlook perspectives report

As a result of pandemic-induced economic disruption and consumer behaviour shifts, E&M revenues in 2020 experienced the sharpest contraction in the history of our research. These twin forces also accelerated progress toward industry tipping points by several years. In 2021, those tipping points have morphed and coalesced into power shifts that are rapidly reshaping the industry.
