My 2021 Watchlist

Updated: Feb 8, 2021



The stock market has had an enormous rebound in year 2020 up to an All Time High as of now. The COVID pandemic has triggered off an unprecedented change in human lifestyle and accelerated exponential growth in many sectors. Vaccines have been rolled out across the world and will be distributed throughout the year 2021 to get as many people vaccinated as possible. However, this takes time and so, many pandemic proof lifestyle are here to stay.


5 Sectors that will thrive in year 2021 and beyond


1) E-COMMERCE


With the pandemic on-going, plenty of travel restrictions forced people to stay at home and stay in their own country. However, many people like certain products from certain countries. Since we cannot travel to buy products from other places, we can only buy them online. Hence, the boom in the e-commerce sector. Thanks to the inventions of the high speed internet and low cost smart phones, online stores are super accessible anywhere around the world. The convenience and trust towards the online shopping experience will be here to stay even if the pandemic is over. This trend will also grow tremendously with more people going online.


2) DIGITAL PAYMENTS & CYBER SECURITY


With the e-commerce sector booming, the demand for digital payments to handle online transactions spike as well. The ease of use coupled with fast direct transactions will also retain current users with a growing trend as more people go online. Cyber security is also another key sector which goes hand in hand with digital payments. As digital payments are vulnerable online, cyber security is required to keep both the payers and payees safe from cyber theft.


3) CLEAN ENERGY


As travel restrictions are all over the world when the COVID pandemic happened, demand for oil drops tremendously to a point where the oil price went to negative in the year 2020. Besides that, with Biden's victory in the 2020 US Presidential election, the push for clean energy comes under the spotlight. These give some time for clean energy companies to gain more investments which in turn generate more values and enabling better technologies in the clean energy sector. As clean energy technologies become the mainstream to replace oil, there is plenty of upside for this sector for the next few years.


4) 5G, THE INTERNET, CONNECTIVITY, & BLOCKCHAIN


The next few years will be another exponential boom for the 5G, internet, connectivity , & blockchain sector. Accelerated by the COVID pandemic, the need for internet usage and online connectivity spikes as travelling is restricted. Many businesses will need to undergo digital transformation. Employees will need to be connected remotely. In order to land a job, people will need to learn and use IoT devices. Plenty of services are to be transformed digitally and automated which also require connectivity. The inclusion of the blockchain technology also enable businesses to store complex data efficiently with effortless accessibility and documentation tracing with transparency.


5) HEALTHCARE & GENOMICS TECHNOLOGY


The COVID pandemic also accelerated the focus in developing healthcare technologies. Many realised that humans can easily catch sickness and die if the sickness is deadly. For many years, humans have been trying to find ways to make ourselves stronger by preventing the chances of getting deadly sicknesses. Through researching genetics in humans and in other living organisms, we can find out which part of the genes are effective to prevent against certain diseases. By knowing this, there is perhaps a chance to alter human genes to do away with the weaknesses to improve our lives and health.
