Recruit Holdings Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions

The Company believes that after experiencing a contraction due to the initial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the size of the global HR Matching increased significantly in 2021 due to global labor market conditions as the size of the HR Matching market tends to be highly correlated with overall economic growth and resulting labor market conditions. The Company expects that the HR Matching market will continue growing beyond 2022, but at a slower rate than the rate experienced during 2021 as labor markets, including employer and job seeker activities and expectations, adjust and normalize after a period of significant growth driven by unprecedented labor market conditions.
