Impact of Covid-19 on the Vietnam & Philippines Candles Market

The advent of Covid-19 in 2020 had a decelerating effect on most industries, and the Vietnam & Philippines Candles Market was no exception. While the governments of both countries imposed stringent movement restrictions & lockdowns to curb the spread of this dreadful disease, the leading players in the market witnessed several unprecedented challenges associated with the production & distribution of candles.

Difficulties like disruptions in the supply chain, shortage of raw materials, delays in the deliveries of pre-produced candles, slow production, and shut down of manufacturing units, among others, introduced significant financial losses for the industry leaders amidst the crisis.

However, on the other hand, manufacturers adopted digital platforms as their sales channels to sustain the competition amidst the pandemic. This paradigm shift of retailers displayed a swift escalation in the sales of candles as people were inclined immensely toward online shopping for purchasing both essential & non-essential goods.

Furthermore, with the gradually declining number of Covid cases, governments uplifted the restrictions & allowed the recommencement of business operations.
