Cross-industry collaboration, reduced taxes, and low interest rates key to expediting recovery from the economic slump

SANTA CLARA, California, July 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan's recent analysis, New Trade and Supply Chain Mega Trends to Transform the Global Economy in 2020, predicts that the destabilizing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the macroeconomic fundamentals will cause the global economy to contract by 3.6% in 2020. Major European and American economies are forecast to witness contraction much deeper than 6%, whereas the Chinese economy is expected to grow by 1.3%. The global economy will most likely begin to recover from the impact of the pandemic by 2021, boosted by hefty stimulus packages and stringent fiscal measures. Additional efforts by governments of affected nations, such as lowered interest rates and extended loan moratoriums, are also expected to help beleaguered industries find a footing during these tumultuous times.

"The global economy has already witnessed shallow V-shaped recovery from most historical health shocks such as SARS and MERS," said Sambhavy Shrestha, economist, Emerging Market Innovation (EMI) practice at Frost & Sullivan. "While a wide V-shaped recovery from the COVID-19 crisis is expected, the delayed revival of global consumer demand will deter quick recovery of business sentiments and unemployment rates. As early signs of recovery in the global economy emerged by the end of Q2 2020 with easing lockdowns, historically high levels of government spending will remain pivotal for faster recovery."

Shrestha added: "With the larger economy expected to remain contracted throughout 2020 and growth recovery to pre-crisis levels expected only in 2022, businesses need to adapt to long-term shifts in consumer spending patterns and workforce transformation. Export-oriented economies will face a severe decrease in demand and consequent reduction in government revenues, even after signs of global economic revival. Telehealth and similar minimum-contact services are well-positioned to grow in 2020, given the increased demand and government incentives for such industries."
