In China, the coronavirus has fast-tracked key consumer trends, which may serve as an indication for businesses across the world.

Increase in use of digital platforms

Online channels were the only way brands and retailers could maintain a connection with consumers, as such there was a sharp increase in e-commerce transactions. Post coronavirus, a recent study by Mckinsey shows that around 55% of consumers in China are likely to continue purchasing their groceries online, which reflects that buying behaviors have significantly changed.

Decrease in spending on ‘unnecessary goods’

Tofugear’s Digital Consumer in Asia report 2020, which was conducted on consumers across more than 12 countries in Asia, during the time of the outbreak, revealed that mainland China’s consumer confidence remains among the highest in Asia.
