COVID 19 Analysis

The manufacture of food containers was limited after COVID-19 because of a scarcity of raw materials brought on by a broken supply chain. 2020 saw a fall in annual revenue for a number of significant players. In contrast to 2019, Amcor plc’s yearly turnover decreased by about 6% in 2020.

The demand for packaged food items has surged throughout the pandemic because they are considered vital products. Additionally, the demand for food containers has not decreased due to the established food brands’ strong supply chains and broad market penetration in several economies. The interruption of the supply chain and transportation constraints have, however, resulted in a fall in the turnover of many large corporations, including Amcor plc.
