Global Cannabidiol Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented lockdowns all around the world, collapsing daily operations and changing consumer behaviors in nearly every industry. As the response to COVID-19 ramps up, several retail stores have shut down. The market started experiencing a shortage in supply due to the nationwide shutdown of transportation and manufacturing in major raw material manufacturing countries, such as China and India. In addition, due to supply chain disruptions in the U.S., the supply of other raw materials has been limited, which is disrupting the manufacturing, and in turn, the supply chain of CBD consumer health products. The Coronavirus or COVID-19 outbreak that started from Wuhan, China has spread across continents, affecting various industries globally. Supply of key materials such as probes required for interventional ablation have been severely disrupted due to forced quarantine, and imposed lockdowns in various countries, which has led to disruption in the link between warehouses. On the other hand, the existence of strict regulations and the high cost of cannabidiol products are some of the major factors limiting the growth of the market. In addition, the absence of legalization initiatives in many Asian and African countries is another main factor impeding the global cannabidiol market growth.
