Introduction

In 2019, the B2B sector was readying itself for an imminent recession. All the signs were there. The China-US trade war and Brexit issues were taking a toll on the global economy.

As an illustration, the most affected B2B sector in 2008 was the high tech category. It is an industry that is mostly dependent on the B2B model of selling.
