Independent Sponsor, LMM Industries to watch Europe

As mentioned in my previous post, I'm an owner/operator of eyewear and clothing brands now working on an independent sponsor deal with a Family Office. I am having doubts in my current industry potential to weather the storm of COVID-19. I think this event will also generate huge opportunities for LMM PE and for independent sponsors in particular.

Wanted to throw it out to the community what industries, or markets you will be watching during this time? Where do you see most opportunity for ROI, and well priced deals in Europe over the next 18-36 months?

As an example I am based in Barcelona and can already see that hotels, tourist industry will be crushed. Boutique hotels should recover when travel returns, so could be an option. Short list I've looked at for potential roll-up:

Medical Cannabis/Cultivation
Auto repair
Fixture manufacturers (home remodel)
Boutique hotels
Transit engineer/maintenance
Opticians
