Industrial Watch: April 4, 2020

“The impact of coronavirus on e-commerce is already proving to be astronomic, with an overall 25% increase from the beginning to the middle of March. Online sales for groceries have doubled in that timeframe, now making up 8% of online sales. Online commerce was already thriving prior to the outbreak, but is experiencing an influx with brick-and-mortar stores being forced to shut their doors. Interestingly, the trend of buying online and picking up in store has jumped 62%, computer sales surging 40%, and fitness gear increasing 55%. These large numbers are only more astonishing with the extremely short time frame they occurred in, the lasting effect still to be seen.” -Adam Abushagur
