The outbreak of COVID-19 began in late 2019, and has spread throughout the world in early 2020. After the diseases was declared a pandemic, affected countries declared complete lockdown, which resulted in the closure of schools. Classes were shifted online, which caused a reduction in the sale of clothes, shoes, lunch boxes, water bottles, and art & craft supplies. The sales of stationeries were reduced, as students were staying at home, as the study material was recorded and shared in a digital format, which led to major losses for stationary brands. Moreover, schools remained closed for months, and were reopened periodically for a few weeks or a months, depending on the various conditions of the pandemic in the region. Thus, closure of schools was a major setback for the growth of the back-to-school market.

Analyst Review

Last few years have witnessed an increase in the rate of literacy in Asia-Pacific. A large number of children are getting access to primary education, due to the efforts and initiatives taken by governments to improve the education standards in the countries. Moreover, many rural areas are establishing new schools and facilities to promote education, with many other nongovernment organizations pitching in to further improve education across the region.

The COVID-19 outbreak was witnessed in the Hubei province of the Wuhan city in China in late December. A lot of countries in Asia-Pacific imposed complete lockdown that resulted in closing down of schools for a significant period of time. In addition, the impact was felt by manufacturers and retailers of stationery and related products. However, with reopening of schools, the demand for stationary products is likely to escalate in the upcoming years.

In addition, with changing consumer behavior toward online shopping, engaged stakeholders in the industry have transitioned toward online channels to deliver back-to-school products. Higher convenience, secured payments, and myriad of options have resulted in increasing popularity of online channels. Thus, sales of such products is likely to proliferate with improving digital infrastructure and rising awareness regarding such channels.
