Business activity in Indian declines because of the impact of the second Covid-19 wave, with the highest damage falling into young businesses - And Mageplaza has duties to support

Covid-19 is slowing down India’s business activity

Coronavirus has largely impacted the growth of almost every country in the world and is responsible for the slump of sales and revenue in every industry sector. More countries are experiencing their worst of Covid-19 waves. As of now, India is witnessing the worst Covid-19 surge with record-breaking infections and deaths on a daily basis. Economic activity in India is suffering due to the localized lockdowns during the pandemic.

According to the Ministry of Statistics, India’s growth in the fourth quarter of the fiscal year 2020 went down to 3.1%. The data also showed that industrial production dropped sharply in April due to the national lockdown. Though the overall economic impact of the second Covid-19 is estimated to be milder than last year, the resurgent pandemic is unlikely to decline soon and will continue to devastate Indian business activity.

The lockdown imposed in April 2021 across Maharashtra, India (the state with the highest share of infections in the country) has put economic losses at nearly 400 billion Indian rupees (~ 5.4 billion USD) for the entire country.

Amid the severe damage of the Covid-19 chaos, the Indian eCommerce industry also sees a considerable upsurge due to the rising demands of online shoppers, securing substantial room for future growth. According to Worldpay FIS’s 2021 Global Payments report, India’s eCommerce industry is expected to grow 84% to $111 billion by 2024. The report also indicates that India’s eCommerce industry will be driven by mobile shopping, expanding the eCommerce capability beyond just traditional websites and physical retail stores.

However, the entire economy of India has fallen on hard times, and the new online businesses are the most vulnerable.

Challenges for new Indian online retailers

Indian new online stores are facing the worst-ever challenges due to a deadly second wave of Covid-19.

Online shopping will never be the same after the coronavirus pandemic. The fact that consumers are shifting to online shopping can’t guarantee the sales and revenue for new online businesses in India because many of them don’t have a good preparation for such an unpredictable situation as well as substantial financial support. Having no support from a group of loyal customers also causes a huge loss. This is one of the factors that make young online businesses left behind by the established ones. They hardly have a room in the competition. It will be more difficult for them to recover after the pandemic and continue building up and solidifying their positions in the market.

But there is always a way to deal with things. If young eCommerce businesses understand the situation, know which tactics should be used and how to respond to the challenges appropriately, they’ll have opportunities to thrive and gain a competitive advantage.
