Increases in CPG demand due to COVID-19 outbreak worldwide September 2020, by country

Due to the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, consumer packaged goods (CPG) demand has soared in several countries. CPG sales grew by 5.9 percent in greece compared to the previous year. The United Kingdom was an outlier with only 0.7 percent growth during the year.

Supply shortages in local grocery stores

Early in the pandemic, there had been reports of food and supply shortages in local grocery stores worldwide. In March 2020, consumers in many countries believed this was more likely due to people stockpiling items, as opposed to supply and distribution disruptions. In Australia, France, and the United Kingdom, for instance, over 85 percent of consumers perceived the cause of local grocery store shortages to be due to people stockpiling food and other products.

Stockpiling worldwide

In March 2020, consumers in India, Vietnam, and the United States were most likely to stockpile water during the COVID-19 pandemic. Chinese consumers were by far the most likely to stash food supplies.
