Certainly, Coronavirus had a very heavy impact on the global economy, all newscasts agree on this matter. However, as a consequence of the limits in mobility imposed on people by the virus, some sectors have seen a surge in orders.
Among these sectors, there is the online sales sector, where consumer products have seen an 81% increase in sales, a 30% increase as compared to last week.
The surge in Online Sales
The growth of online sales is not only an Italian phenomenon but it has also become an international trend as they are the direct consequence of Coronavirus.
Nielsen’s data, from an analysis of the week going from the 24th February to the 1st March, highlighted that online sales of Italian’s Large-scale Distribution (Grande Distribuzione Organizzata) have recorded a 12.2% surge, a significant growth if compared to the same week in 2019.
“In recent weeks, the average of Italian online sales have registered a surge of 15%, in the Italian region of Veneto alone, the number has peaked to 20%,” said Roberto Liscia, president of Netcomm, the Italian Digital Commerce Consortium.
Bloomberg reports that Amazon warned customers of possible delays in deliveries, due to the huge increase in global demand.
Chinese News report that Alibaba’s Fresh Hema has decided to share its employees with the restaurants and companies that manage home deliveries to try to answer to the huge number of online sales in the Coronavirus pandemic’s period. On the 10th of February, more than 1800 workers have started working on short-term contracts for Fresh Hema.
In the same way, Japan’s supplies emergency caused by the spread of COVID-19 resulted in a massive appeal to the home delivery sector.
