Top 3 industries that are thriving during the pandemic

Every cloud has a silver lining, as the saying goes – and that applies to the pandemic as well. While it’s certainly been a tough time for many industries, others have actually flourished in spite of the situation.  Online platforms and games like esports and online casinos have benefitted greatly from people staying at home more, and the same goes for domestic industries such as home décor and gardening. Read on and learn all about this new development. 

The gaming industry: Esports and online casino gaming

For kids and teenagers, gaming has been a very popular activity during the lockdown. The kids have been spending a lot of extra time at home while school and sport activities have been shut down. Online gaming is another way to socialize without having to be in the same room. Esports is one example of an online gaming form that has really had an impact on generation Z and their gaming habits – and its popularity certainly hasn’t declined during the lockdown.  

The adult gaming industry has also seen a rise in users and activity on their sites during the pandemic. Online casino and betting sites have been rising in popularity, probably due to people’s extra spare time at home and the shutdown of physical casinos.
According to ABC News, many casinos have seen a significant rise in their memberships for online casino and poker games. Gamblers have lost the option to go out and use slot machines or play card games, and for them, the solution has been to dive into the online gambling world instead. For example, the leading internet gambling site in New Jersey, Golden Nugget, has seen a rise in its online member sign-ups due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Online platforms: Meetings and TV from the comfort of your own home 

Of course, we can’t talk about the pandemic without mentioning online meetings. We have worked, kept in touch and played online games with family and friends, attended school and even had our doctor’s appointments through a screen. Online meeting platforms like Zoom and Google Meet have never been as popular and necessary as they have been during the lockdown. Most people have been forced to learn to use these platforms, and many might have come to see an advantage in online meetings. Therefore, the online meeting platforms – much like esports and online gambling platforms – might still be looking into a bright future, even after the end of the pandemic and home offices as the norm.
Besides the online meeting platforms, we also must mention social media and streaming sites, which have definitely also been experiencing a boom during the lockdown. Netflix, for example, came out with their most popular series ever during the pandemic:  Squid Game

DIY: Home and gardening

During the lockdown, lots of people have found themselves sitting at home with a lot of extra time on their hands. Most activities and events have been cancelled and travelling has been almost impossible. So, what do we do when we’re all out of esports and online casino games to try? When spending a lot of time at home, we often find ourselves wanting to change that dull color on the walls or build that fancy terrace we’ve always wanted. And with nothing else to do, we might as well just get it done already. The home décor and gardening industries have been thriving due to the many DIY projects suddenly going on in people’s homes.
