Besides this, they are considered to be a good portfolio hedge and diversifier against inflation that enables unique opportunities. The continuous improvements in the e-commerce infrastructure and the advent of online delivery models are providing a boost to the market growth.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
