And I feel subsequent 12 months we are going to see an excellent larger enhance.”

Elaborating on his optimistic forecast for 2021, Baird stated “I’m not just like the folks in lots of earlier years, saying ‘properly, this 12 months there wasn’t a lot, however I will wager subsequent 12 months might be higher.’”, including:

However now persons are beginning to get into it for actual, as you’ve got stated, and persons are beginning to put money into it. I imply, large, large organizations, persons are beginning to really use it of their corporations.”
