COVID-19 Impact Insights

The COVID-19 pandemic has induced major sluggishness across several end-use industries, attributed to cessation of production cycles amid strict lockdowns. Falling industrial production has also impeded demand for packaging laminates across major domains. However, demand is largely being sustained by the food & pharmaceutical industries.

An uptick in consumption of healthcare consumables, fresh & processed ready-to-eat foods and hygiene & homecare products is prompting vendors to strengthen their supply chains. Additionally, rising e-commerce activities have opened up fertile grounds for the proliferation of packaging laminates.

If existing lockdown measures continue to remain enforced, projected recovery across other industries is anticipated to be slow, leading to a sluggish trajectory. However, if they are relaxed, growth will pick up pace from the beginning of 2021.
