COVID-19 Impact:

Disruption in Supply Chain Obstructed Market Expansion

The COVID-19 restrictions led to disruptions in the supply chain, causing delays in food and drink exports, particularly in the U.K. This impacted the industry’s ability to deliver its products to consumers and international markets. Another factor that hindered the market growth is the reduction in workforce and operational challenges faced by industry players due to lockdowns and restrictions on large public gatherings. This impacted production and operational efficiency, making it difficult for the industry to meet product demand and expand during the pandemic.

However, the growing inclination toward more affordable and readily available alcoholic beverages such as wine, spirits, and beer is causing consumers to shift their focus away from the product, hindering the scotch whisky market growth.
