This report was researched during January and February 2020, before COVID-19 had spread globally and become a pandemic.
In the last couple of weeks, views on the impact of the virus on the global economy and on online retail have changed rapidly.
Current expectations are that:
Global GDP will fall significantly in Q1 and Q2, with a recovery in Q3
Online retail has benefitted from large-scale substitution of purchases from physical stores, many of which are now closed. However, this is increasingly likely to be offset by people reducing non-essential purchases.
In this report the publisher provides their original forecast, as prepared in February 2020, along with an update reflecting their latest views on how they now expect the market to perform during this year (2020) and what implications this has for later years.
The publisher expects this view to be updated as events unfold and intend to issue revisions of the commentary on a regular basis until market conditions return to a more stable pattern.
