The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to persist through at least 2021 as vaccines and other virus mitigation efforts take time to make their way through societies globally. In the meantime, the global economy remains in a state of suspended animation following unprecedented injections of fiscal and monetary stimulus by governments across numerous countries, which when aggregated to date, amount to over $20 trillion (or 23% of global GDP in 2019). The amount of stimulus is expected to continue, growing steadily through 2021 and potentially beyond, as governments aim to fully offset the impact of the pandemic on their economies as well as build a foundation for sustainable economic growth.
After weathering the first phase of the pandemic in 2020 relatively well, communication service providers (CSPs) will enter 2021 facing a brave new world and many tough decisions to make. The unrelenting pandemic is forcing economies and societies to fully embrace digital transformation as they adjust to the new normal and forcing CSPs worldwide to take a hard, holistic look at their operational model, business model and growth model and to adjust and accelerate their digital transformation road maps accordingly.
