Finding Secular Silver Linings in the Next Normal
A widening gap between winners and losers as companies adapt to new realities will accelerate and strengthen tailwinds for secular growth companies.
The COVID-19 disruption has given investors a heightened appreciation of transformative businesses, accelerating structural changes that were well underway pre-crisis. Disruptive companies that were challenging traditional industries before the crisis are well positioned to emerge as long-term growth leaders in the NEXT—or New EXceptional Technologies—economy.
Post-pandemic, the lasting impact on many shifts in consumer and business behavior will accelerate the collapse of already-struggling industries while fostering outsized growth in secular growth companies with more innovative business models. The epoch of this new disruption at a massive scale will affect some sectors and industries more profoundly than others, widening the gap between the winners and losers.
