Production and Manufacturing Industry

Supply disruptions are one of the most common challenges manufacturing and production industries are responding to. Under the lockdown, the automobile, textiles, and engineering are amongst the top industries facing supply issues due to a shortage of workers who returned to their home states.

Tourism and Travel Industry

The rise of coronavirus and travel restrictions may have ended up the need for certain travel agencies and tourism businesses among the consumers. Also, it impacted badly on airline businesses and forced planes to be grounded due to the uncertainty of a slowdown of the pandemic. Yet, it’s too early to predict the losses and risks associated with a huge halt in tourism and travel exercises.

Hospitality and Restaurant Industry 

Hospitality is amongst one of the two largest industries impacted by the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Hoteliers and restaurants in the sector felt a sharp decline in the demands in the first quarter of 2020 in domestic travel & accommodation. Also, the precautionary policies and containment measures introduced by the Indian government lead to a serious dip in foreign tourists. All due to airlines and travel, restrictions, cancellations, restaurant and bar closures, low consumer interest, etc. 

Predictions are that most of the businesses in this industry will find themselves on the verge to reevaluate their business models to analyze risks and growth chances in such vulnerable times post lockdown. Further, the sources estimate that the restaurant and hospitality industries will face shutdowns and gradual recoveries in already closed businesses if the situation doesn’t improve.

Information & Technology (IT) Industry
Coronavirus has a slight mixed impact on the IT industry. By mandating the work from home policies for employees and realizing the benefits of outsourcing. IT firms were able to ease the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on their business and gain profits. Due to the country lockdowns, many businesses have seen a considerable surge in demands of home and business collaboration software and tools.

Zoom, a popular enterprise video communication platform is one of the most downloaded business apps in India under lockdown period. Researches have predicted that the industry will continue to thrive at a flat pace even in the precautionary lockdown restriction and reducing demands.

Coronavirus is already being regarded as the greatest humanitarian crisis we have witnessed in almost a hundred years. It’s no shock that the virus is spreading daily like wildfire, and by the time we publish this blog, India would have crossed the 30k mark among the active positive Covid-19 cases. 

The impact of Covid-19 businesses in India Is severe and required to be resolved now and moreover post lockdown. Surely the policies are being made to lessen the impact, but in such a crisis robust measures are required to support and stabilize the failing sectors, and businesses. This should be in the government’s top priorities.

“The country’s growth is likely to hit a 30-year low of 2 percent in the financial year 2020-21 (FY21) as economic recession grips the global economy, following Covid-19 outbreak, Fitch Ratings said in its latest report.”
