A third of the global population is subject to stay-at-home directives by governments across the globe. This has popularized online purchases for daily essentials.
With lockdown restrictions, online sales across all verticals especially grocery and pharmaceuticals have soared up. In fact, as per the data from E-commerce Consumer Sales, there has been an average growth rate of over 250% in essential categories like Food and Beverages, Household Goods, Medical and Baby products.

A ray of hope for conventional businesses to move online
Deserted streets and closed shops portray the financial risk that small and medium-sized businesses have witnessed in the current corona-hit economy. However, the growing share of E-commerce eating up traditional sales poses an opportunity in itself.
Even after the pandemic, the fear amidst people is here to stay until vaccines are available. This will lead the masses to follow social distancing, stay indoors, and stick to online purchases.
Another factor that adds in is convenience. Business owners, still stuck to the old school concept of running brick-and-mortars, need to consider the examples of service aggregators and those brands that thrive on the concept of convenience.
