5 Industries Boosted by the Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the global landscape in many ways. While the pandemic has led to massive losses worldwide for many businesses, it has also resulted in a dramatic increase in demand for some industries. In this article we will focus on these newly rising stars. 🌟
2020 was a rollercoaster for the entire world, regardless of where we live or in which industry we work in. Some industries such as Tourism saw a dramatic fall, and others grew from strength to strength. 🎢
Let’s discover which industries these are and what has led them to success. 💪
Digital tools, software, and anything that is related to remote work
“Remote work”, “working remotely”, “hybrid work”… These are the words we have heard the most in 2020 when talking about business of any kind. Zoom meetings became the new normal, and we all got used to seeing our colleagues on screen, not in person. 😷
Did you know that as of April 2020, despite the decrease in the value of many tech companies, Zoom’s shares rose as the pandemic spread and Microsoft Teams reached 44 million users?
With that being said, how to survive the pandemic and increase revenues are complete no-brainers for software product and digital tool companies that make remote working easier. Just like Brella, a networking platform that has been looking for new talent amid the pandemic. 😊

Healthcare services, digital healthcare tools, and virtual solutions
Ever since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic we have all become more aware of the limitations of the healthcare system in our country, regardless of where we live. In that sense, the pandemic has made it inevitable that healthcare apps and virtual healthcare solutions are in high demand. 💊
Even in early 2020, when the pandemic had not yet taken hold across the entire world, a boom in mobile healthcare solutions was noted. The market drivers were said to be a large pool of patients, increases in government funding, growing adoption of smartphones and increasing penetration of 3G and 4G networks in developing regions.

Online shopping, e-commerce and consumption addiction
The incredible transmission pace of the coronavirus and the aftermath of the worldwide lockdown showed us how important it is to be able to have access to digital tools in our daily lives. Sometimes, survival can be as simple as being able to go to the grocery store without risking your life as well as the lives of others. 😷
And also there is another truth we should mention. Staying at home and not being able to socialise has also led to a higher amount of online shopping. According to a global survey, nearly 40% of people say they’re shopping on the internet weekly, up from 30% pre-pandemic. So, you are not alone! 🛒
In the UK, the ONS reported that online sales reached higher than usual levels over the course of the first six months of the pandemic. 🛍

Electronic transfer tools and FinTech — no to cash, yes to hygiene
“While we could see it coming, once it hit, the pandemic changed business overnight. And when a crisis like this happens, the pace of business is totally different. Weeks start to feel like months, and outcomes are impossible to predict.” This is how Sharat Sharan, CEO, President, and Co-Founder of ON24, a digital experience platform, describes the global pandemic in a Forbes interview.
Fortunately, some industries have been able to thrive during the COVID-19 pandemic. FinTech companies offering cashless solutions such as electronic transfer tools and debit cards are a great example. 💰
One of the reasons for the growth of FinTech is that the industry is maturing and providing a more holistic solution for customers. In addition to that, tech innovations in the recent years and big acquisitions such as Visa’s purchase of Plaid have been helping fuel the industry. 🌟

E-Learning, remote learning tools, and remote education
Did you know that school and university closures have impacted over 1.5 billion learners in more than 180 countries? 🎒
One of the emerging industries boosted by the COVID-19 pandemic has clearly been e-Learning. Google Hangouts and web apps like Seesaw have become the new normal for students, and lots of new e-learning solutions are being developed as well.
It seems e-Learning technologies will continue to advance in the coming years, and remote study will remain as an option if not a new norm when the pandemic is over. 😷 So, if you are on the verge of a career change, definitely consider this field! If your focus is already e-Learning, congrats— you are on the right path!
We hope all businesses can adapt to the new normal – finding innovative ways to not only survive but also to thrive! And we hope that the pandemic ends soon. Until then, make the industries above your priority when you are job-hunting! 🍀
