AN EMPIRICAL INVESTIGATION OF COVID-19 ON PRODUCT SALES AND MARKETING

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

Notably, many states; continents; regions; urban and rural communities; families thinking and lifestyle of have been impacted by the outbreak a harmful pandemic pandemic known as Covid-29.

The COVID-19 pandemic is a global public health emergency characterized with high infectivity, a high mortality rate, and a long incubation period. According to Elis (2020), COVID-19 pandemic is a black swan event that caused a ripple effect on every aspect of human life. In the view of mineth (2020), The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a human social and economic crisis that has attacked the core of human existence. The virus continued to spread uncontrollably around the world; as of May 11, 2020, 2,403,888 people had been infected globally (WHO, 2020). The outbreak is predicted to reach its peak in June 2020, declining only from July 2020 onwards (WHO, 2020). The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all segments of the population, especially vulnerable groups such as the old, the infirm, the disabled, the marginalized and the poverty-stricken (Donthu & Gustafsson, 2020).

COVID-19 has also pushed businesses across the world to rapidly operate in newer and more resilient ways.

In response to the pandemic outbreak, the leaders of many countries decided to save lives before saving the economy, declaring sudden or phased lockdowns in their countries. Policies like “social distancing” and “stay-at-home” were implemented overnight, which severely damaged several businesses across industries and consumer markets suffered scarcity (Donthu and Gustafsson, 2020, Leite et al., 2020).

However, The COVID-19 pandemic, lockdown and social distancing mandates have disrupted the consumer habits of buying as well as shopping. It affected people's psychology and behavior intensively. One of the most typical behavior during the COVID-19 pandemic is panic buying, which refers to the behavior of buying unusually large amounts of products based on the need of coping with public health emergency (Imanet 2004). Loss of control, insecurity, social learning, and fear of scarcity are the core factors that causes panic buying (Imanet 2004). thus, the Covid-19 restriction measures mandated by Governments had a massive effect on markets as movements were restricted likewise transportation, market places restricted to opening 2-3 times a week, social distancing and no direct contacts in all sectors, and so many more. Hence in this study, the researchers aims at discovering and ascertaining how Covid-19 and its mandated precautionary measures affected markets and products.

1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

COVID-19 has created a very difficult challenge throughout the world in addition to many illnesses and deaths, large portions of the world population are quarantined or have had their freedom of movement limited. Several mandated preventative measures created a hintch among human activities and daily survival. Nevertheless, the production and supply of goods was at the minimum level as staffs observed the stay at home policy and businesses were also shutdown due to safety measures enacted to contain the spread of the virus. inversely, this resulted to scarcity of goods in the markets as panic buying behaviour took place across many countries of the World just like in the case of Nigeria and resulted the inflation on scarce products. Therefore, food shoppers suffered different challenges during the coronavirus pandemic, such as limited public transportation, food stock-outs (i.e. exhausted inventories), and reduced hours at supermarkets and grocery stores.

I actually googled and saw about iproject master, copied the number and contacted them through WhatsApp to ask for the availability of the material and to my luck they have it. So there was a delay with the project due to the covid19 pandemic. I was really scared before making the payment cause I’ve been scammed twice, they attended so well to me and that made me trust the process and made the payment and provided them with proof, I got my material in less than 10minutes
