COVID-19 Impact Analysis
The impact of COVID-19 has negatively affected the distribution and sales of different products across several industries. Many countries worldwide are under lockdown and have sealed their borders to control the spread of the virus. Due to several governments' new travel and gathering restrictions, many brands and retailers cancel orders from their supplier factories. As a result, many rainwear factories are suspending production and either firing or putting their employees on temporary leave. The impact of COVID-19 on logistics has disturbed the supply of raw materials. The impact of COVID-19 on logistics has disturbed the supply of rainwear raw materials. Owing to this, the production capacity has decreased and, thus, there is a shortage of products.
