Global Valuation Trends of the Cannabis Industry

In large part, the global cannabis industry is at its infancy, scaling up rapidly and generating impressive quarterly ROI for its many stakeholders. As of January 2020, over 30 states of the US and 50 countries globally have enacted pro-cannabis laws decriminalizing some forms of cannabis. The wave of new regulations opened up a new marketing front for cannabis products and triggered widespread interest in cannabis and cannabis-derived products. 

The global cannabis market is projected to worth an estimated $146.4b by 2025 while expanding steadily at a CAGR of 34.6%. Increased public and private investment and rising demand for recreational and medical uses are the principal factors expected to drive growth during this forecast period. 

Far beyond the market prospects created by the new pro-cannabis legislation, new market entrants and established cannabis companies are also required to strictly comply with legal statues on licensing, investment, acquisitions, product labeling, shipping, and international marketing. As market indices grow, the need for consultancy services, legal advisory, and ancillary services increases in multifold. 

Here at Gateway Proven Strategies, we provide reliable solutions for our clients and resultantly create sustainable, reproducible, and dependable outcomes in a bid to stimulate the global cannabis economy. With a commanding presence across 6 continents, we studied the regional complexities of the cannabis supply chain and have partnered with different clients, including business owners, government officials, as well as domestic and international investors.
