Arcview Market Research and BDSA Agree the Declaration of Cannabis as an 'Essential Service' Amid COVID-19 Pandemic Is Historic Moment

LOS ANGELES, July 13, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Arcview Market Research and BDSA (formerly BDS Analytics) forecast worldwide legal cannabis industry revenue will grow another 38% to $20.4 billion in 2020. The eighth edition of the widely-cited "State of Legal Cannabis Markets" series also forecasts sales to reach $46.8 billion in 2025, growing at a 21.2% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2019-2025.

Cannabis has been designated an "essential service" by state governments amid COVID-19 restrictions within cannabis-friendly U.S. states, demonstrating the dramatic change of status for cannabis over the last decade. Most notably, the designation enables government and industry to work together effectively towards a common goal of improving the economy and providing critical access to medical and wellness products. As quarantines lift, support from state officials looking to fill budget shortfalls from the recession could result in more legalization efforts.

"The shelter-in-place orders that began in mid-March could prompt cash-starved state governments to accelerate legalization in a bid for tax revenue," said Troy Dayton, founder and Chief Strategy Officer of The Arcview Group. "Despite several states postponing planned 2020 legalization ballot measures due to COVID-19, the current forecast shows all Americans having access to medical cannabis by 2025."

The global legal cannabis industry CAGR of 34.3% (between 2013 and 2019) can be mostly attributed to shifting views and baseline demand. Looking ahead, the worldwide market is expected to more than triple- from $14.8 billion in 2019 to $46.8 billion- in 2025. The top contributors to U.S. growth will include California, Florida, New York, Illinois, and New Jersey.

"The fundamental fact underlying the forecast of worldwide growth to $46.8 billion in 2025 is simple: even at $14.8 billion in 2019, legal spending represented just a sliver of global cannabis spending, including the illicit trade," said Roy Bingham, Executive Chairman at BDSA.
