E-commerce has been like a massive wave that has washed over much of the traditional retail footprint in the U.S. and Europe. Globally, e-commerce retail sales are projected to hit $6.5 trillion USD in 2024, from $4.0 trillion USD in 2020.1 In the U.S., growth in e-commerce retail sales more than doubled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and is projected to grow at 12% annually over the coming years.1

What to watch as 2020 comes to an end

This is the last blog of the year for me. And what a year it has been — one full of loss. Loss of people, first and foremost, and also of businesses. It was just reported the other day that New York icon The 21 Club will be closing for good, the latest of many service-related businesses to sadly fall victim to the pandemic.  I think we are all eagerly waiting to close the books on 2020 and looking forward to brighter days in 2021. I want to thank the many health care workers and other frontline workers (including grocery store employees, emergency responders and teachers) who have risked their lives this year in the face of the pandemic. I think I speak for all of my Invesco colleagues in saying that I am in awe of you and all you have done this year.

2021 U.S. outlook: The recovery takes hold

As we say good riddance to 2020, we enter 2021 with a confidence that new market and business cycles have arisen. We believe the economy, out of the depths of the COVID-induced recession, has entered what will be a protracted recovery, complete with the inevitable fits and starts, as experienced at the end of 2020. It may be years before the U.S. returns to its full productive capabilities and full employment has been restored. Nonetheless, we believe the markets will be focused on the improvements in economic activity in the coming years.
