Covered in this report

Although key economic indicators and consumer confidence have shown signs of recovery since March, this quick recovery is largely driven by business activities resuming from a near standstill in February when the outbreak was at its peak. What’s more important in the long term is the recovery driven by the restoration of spending confidence. Our latest research in April suggests this will be slow and cautious. A few sectors, especially the essentials like in-home food, have benefited from COVID-19 as consumers have ‘brought the outside in’ during the outbreak, but many other sectors will be less fortunate and face different paths to recovery. While COVID-19 brings disruption, it is also a catalyst for change and will push businesses to innovate, improvise and adapt their business models in time of outbreak.

Expert analysis from a specialist in the field

Written by Jinyu Wang, a leading analyst in the Lifestyles sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.

COVID-19 has disrupted China’s economic growth but the fundamentals of the economy remain solid. After all, China has a consumer market of 1.4 billion people and is among the first few markets to emerge from the outbreak after decisive lockdown measures to contain the outbreak. Nevertheless consumer confidence has been shaken and there is growing uncertainty about the global economic climate after COVID-19. How quickly China’s economy can return to growth depends much on domestic consumer spending, which already accounts for 60% of its GDP growth by 2019. Jinyu Wang
