COVID-19 scenario analysis
• The rapid spread of COVID-19 pandemic largely impacted the demand from end users of ceramide such as cosmetics and skincare products manufacturers. Lockdown measures and travel restrictions hindered the offline sales of cosmetics and personal care products. Moreover, due to limited social gathering, consumers are leaving home only for essential products. In addition, due to social distancing norms large number of direct sales channels and retail stores witnessed sharp decline in sales of cosmetics product. Countries across the globe-imposed ban on cross-border imports of various goods, which largely impacted the supply chain of ceramide market. Delayed supply of raw materials and increase in lead time affected the production of ceramide and various end products.
• However, the restriction on offline sales channels created new market opportunities for e-commerce, direct-consumer, and click-and-collect sales channels. Many cosmetics products manufacturers reported 200% increase in online sales compared to that of pre-Covid period. Moreover, with new promotion and discounts on online products, the market will slowly improve moving the unsold inventories.
