Industry Outlook

All areas of the protective services industry were affected by the coronavirus pandemic, which began in Wuhan, China, in late 2019. Business lockdowns, social distancing requirements, and an economic slowdown increased the challenges workers in this industry had to deal with in their daily jobs. In addition, political and social unrest that caused mass protests throughout the U.S. in 2020 also raised awareness of and concerns about various sectors of the protective services industry. The rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine and accelerated distribution in 2021 will bolster the economy and increase the need for protective services as businesses reopen and employees return to working in offices.
