IRCG Weekly Pandemic Revenue Index returns to mid-single digits

Index reports a five percent increase for week YOY.

Indian River Consulting Group’s (IRCG) weekly Pandemic Revenue Index for the work week of Feb. 8-Feb. 12, 2021, indicated a 5% increase compared with the same week a year ago. Out of the 13 reporting firms, seven respondents reported increases ranging from mid-single digits to above 33%. Six companies reported declines ranging from 1% to 12%.

IRCG’s distributor Pandemic Revenue Index gives distributors a weekly quantified view into how other distributors in the industry are faring as the global COVID-19 pandemic progresses.

“After a double-digit growth week to start February, the index has returned to mid-single digits, which was the pattern through the better part of January. As we near the one-year anniversary of the index, we’ll be publishing some of the trends we’ve seen for the past 12 months as we wind the index down,” said Mike Emerson, IRCG Partner.
