Analyzing the evolution of the last four years, this 2020 has served to consolidate growth, as in the case of France and Russia, and to return to a positive trend, as in the Czech Republic, the Philippines and the Netherlands.

 

On the contrary, markets such as the United Kingdom, Portugal, Italy and Mexico see how 2020 takes its toll on them and maintains downward trends. The United States has slowed its growth in 2019.
