OVERVIEW

Industry
OVERVIEW

The U.S. cannabis industry is poised to inject nearly $70 billion on an annual basis into the American economy by 2021, an eye-popping figure that underscores the broader economic impact for towns and municipalities that accept legal marijuana businesses into their communities. Estimates published in the newly released Marijuana Business Factbook 2017 show the total economic impact of legal marijuana sales rising from $16 billion-$18 billion in 2016 to $48 billion-$68 billion by 2021 – a 241% increase.

By comparison, the $68 billion figure is similar to the 2016 gross domestic products of the Dominican Republic ($72 billion) and Kenya ($67 billion), according to International Monetary Fund data.

The projections are another example of marijuana’s rapid transformation from an industry dominated by black-market players into a legitimate and considerable economic force, quickly becoming a major job generator and bringing new business opportunities that produce significant ripple effects across the country.

Based on sales of medical and recreational marijuana at the retail level – including flower, infused products and concentrates – the estimates use an economic multiplier of four to quantify the industry’s overall contribution to the economy, showing how revenue generated by cannabis businesses percolates through communities, cities, states and the nation.

In other words, for each dollar spent by marijuana patients/customers at the retail level, an additional $3 in economic benefit is realized – much of it at the local level.Following are examples of how marijuana businesses affect the economy:

• Wages paid to employees of cannabis companies benefit many other local businesses, given that workers spend a portion of their earnings to buy food from a grocery store or dine at a restaurant.

• Marijuana businesses collectively pay hundreds of millions of dollars in state and local taxes, which fund projects including roads and rural hospitals as well as government programs such as education.

• The launch of a new cannabis business – cultivation facilities, in particular – generate real estate and construction activity, often in economically disadvantaged areas of a town or municipality.

With recreational or medical legalization measures passed in 11 markets last year and several more states that have previously legalized marijuana – including Hawaii and Maryland – set to launch in the coming months, the cannabis industry is poised for strong, continual growth well into the future.

Furthermore, sales in existing medical and recreational markets have shown no signs of slowing. In Washington state and Colorado, for example, adult-use sales in the first two months of 2017 broke records.

Consequently, the cannabis industry’s impact on the broader economy will be even greater as time goes on. That may spur public officials to revisit their stance toward marijuana legalization, given the economic upsides that cannabis businesses can bring to the table.

The legal cannabis industry accelerated at a remarkable pace in 2016. North American consumers spent $6.7 billion on legal cannabis products, up 34% from 2015. Cannabis is now legally sold in state of-the-art retail dispensaries with computer-based inventory and sales tracking, fully regulated and taxed by their state governments just like any other product category. Entrepreneurs are modernizing the product just as quickly. Many successful brands have launched extracts, edibles, topicals, and other types of products that are leading consumers to spend more and, in cutting-edge Colorado, they have reduced traditional dried flowers to less than 56% of the business.

More states passed laws to open new markets and expand existing ones in 2016 than in any previous year. These new markets will drive sustained revenue growth in the years ahead. The legislatures of Pennsylvania and Ohio legalized medical cannabis in those major swing states, while voters in California, Maine, Nevada, and Massachusetts passed adult-use initiatives and Arkansas, North Dakota, Florida, and Montana voters passed medical cannabis laws.

The blistering 34% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2014 to 2016 was driven primarily by Colorado and Washington initiating adult-use sales.

This rate of growth will subside somewhat in 2017 to 22%, as the eight states that voted to open or expand their cannabis markets on Election Day in November 2016 work to implement the new programs. But Arcview Market Research forecasts growth will reaccelerate beginning in 2018, as adult use sales ramp up in Canada, California, and Massachusetts along with medical sales in Florida. That will grow the $6.7-billion market of 2016 at a robust 27% CAGR to $22.6 billion in 2021 (see graph prior page).

Very few consumer industry categories reach $5 billion in annual spending and then post anything like 25% compound annual growth across the following five years. Cable television came close, growing 19% annually in the late 1980s as national networks like CNN and HBO proved to be wildly popular. Broadband internet subscription spending grew 29% per annum in the early 2000s as it became almost as much of a “must have” utility as electricity or television for the modern home. What became the ubiquitous home video business that birthed the great Blockbuster success story only grew at a 12% CAGR after reaching $5 billion in revenue in 1988.
