COVID-19 Impact on Logistics & Supply Chain Industry Market

Since logistics and supply chain form the key for seamless functioning of any industry vertical, disruption due to COVID-19 has brought business operations across several industries to a standstill. Logistics and transportation companies have faced sever losses across sectors such as automotive and industrial machinery & equipment. On the other hand, the market players have been under immense pressure due to higher emphasis of national governments on the continued supply of essential commodities and healthcare products. Thus, FMCG and healthcare sectors are expected to provide the much-needed push to logistics and supply chain companies, especially through the pandemic.

      [60 Pages Report] Post-COVID-19, the global logistics market size is projected to grow at a Y-O-Y growth of 17.6% from 2020 to 2021, to reach USD 3,215 billion in 2021 from USD 2,734 billion in 2020. The projection for 2021 is estimated to be down by over 10-15% as compared to pre-COVID-19 estimation.  

      The major drivers of this market are increasing supply of essential commodities, creation of supply chain stabilization task force to fight COVID-19, and growing demand and distribution of personal protective equipment.   

      COVID-19 Impact on Logistics & Supply Chain Industry Market

      FMCG and healthcare industries to remain the largest in the logistics market.

      Countries have exempted the manufacturing services regarding medical machinery and their supplies. The manufacturing of ventilators has increased as the number of COVID-19 positive cases continues to grow. For example, on April 14, 2020, Royal Philips planned to increase its hospital ventilator production to 4,000 units/week by Q3 2020 and introduced its new Philips Respironics E30 ventilator with immediate production of 15,000 units/week. Furthermore, the production and distribution of masks, gloves, medicines like HCQ has increased. The supply of essentials and the manufacturing of medical equipment is expected to drive the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry, and this will further boost the growth for the logistics and supply chain industry.

      FMCG is one of the industries facing significant logistics challenges. Countries having a huge consumer base are facing major challenges when it comes to ensuring the continued supply of essential commodities. With limited availability of fast-moving consumer goods, consumers are experiencing a change in their lifestyle as they are receiving fewer products because of COVID-19 impact on the logistics and supply chain industry. However, FMCG companies are continuously tracking the current situation and are coming up with new strategies to contain the pandemic. The agriculture sector has been exempted from the restrictions laid by the countries. This has ensured sufficient supplies of food and other daily needs products. E-groceries continue to meet the increasing demand for daily supplies by the consumers. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Walmart Grocery application hit all-time high downloads in the US. 

      Roadways are the largest segment for the logistics market

      Roadways and railways are relatively less affected by the COVID-19’s impact on the logistics sector when compared with airways and waterways. Due to heavy restrictions on international transport, roadways and railways have emerged highly important to maintain the optimum supply chain, especially for essential commodities. Being the preferred mode of transportation for essential goods, road transport is heavily relied upon for the continued supply of food, medicine, and other essential products.

      Asia Pacific to have the largest logistics market size during the forecast period

      Asia Pacific is expected to have the largest market sizing as the region has taken stringent measures to contain the virus. China has started to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic faster than any other country.  Only some provinces of the entire country are in lockdown after the second wave of COVID-19. The World Health Organization has also appreciated India’s control over the spread of the pandemic. This has allowed the logistics and supply chain companies to meet consumer demands during the pandemic situation.  The supply of vital products in Singapore, South Korea, and Japan has also regained normalcy. Thus, the Asia Pacific region is expected to show positive signs in the near future as the supply chain industry recovers gradually.

      Key Market Players:

      The logistics market is dominated by global players and comprises several regional players. Some of the key players in the logistics and supply chain industry are DHL (Germany), UPS (US), FedEx (US), Kuehne+Nagel (Switzerland), CEVA Logistics (Switzerland), DB Schenker (Germany), SNCF (France), XPO Logistics (US), Kenco Group (US), and Hitachi Transport System (Japan).

      DHL, UPS, and Kuehne+Nagel are some of the global logistics and supply chain industry that have adopted the strategies of partnerships, new product development, and supply chain contracts to retain their global presence in the market. By strengthening their business growth strategies, they have left a mark not only on the current market but also in emerging markets.

      The study involves four main activities to estimate the current size of the logistics market. Exhaustive secondary research was done to collect information on the market, such as industry, mode of transport, and the impact of COVID-19. The next step was to validate these findings, assumptions, and market analysis with industry experts across value chains through primary research. The top-down approach was employed to estimate the complete market size for different segments considered under this study.  

      Secondary Research

      The secondary sources referred for this research study include annual reports, press releases and investor presentations of companies, white papers, certified publications, articles from recognized authors, directories, databases, and articles from recognized associations and government publishing sources. Some of the sources include the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, International Union of Railways, and Society of Indian Automotive Manufacturers, among others. Various data points have been collected through secondary research such as key company’s revenues, gross domestic product, number of COVID-19 cases, and number of drivers.

      Primary Research

      Extensive primary research has been conducted after acquiring an understanding of the logistics market and supply chain scenario through secondary research. Several primary interviews have been conducted with market experts from both the demand-side players across four major regions, namely North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the rest of the world (RoW—Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa). Primary data has been collected through questionnaires, emails, and telephonic interviews. In the canvassing of primaries, we have strived to cover various departments within organizations, such as supply chain, management, and logistics operations, to provide a holistic viewpoint in our report. The primary validations include the base market size, forecasted market size, CAGR, segment level data, and trends of each segment.

      After interacting with industry experts, we have also conducted brief sessions with highly experienced independent consultants to reinforce the findings from our primaries. This, along with the in-house subject-matter experts’ opinions, has led us to the findings as described in the remainder of this report.

      Market Size Estimation

      The top-down approach has been used to estimate and validate the size of the global market. The logistics market size, by value, has been derived by identifying the region-wise restriction/trends on industry-wise operations as well as logistics services based on the available mode of transport.

      All percentage shares, splits, breakdowns, and COVID-19 impact estimation have been determined using secondary sources and verified through primary sources. All possible parameters that affect the markets covered in this research study have been accounted for, viewed in extensive detail, verified through primary research, and analyzed to obtain the final quantitative and qualitative data.

      This data is mapped for each region under the scope of the study. Country-wise state of operation across different industry verticals was mapped during the study to estimate the possible impact on the logistics sector. Similarly, key factors challenging the logistics companies, along with major restrictions imposed on transportation, were studied to estimate the decline in logistics services across different regions. The market was also analyzed using a bottom-up approach to understand the region-wise impact of industrial operations on the logistics market.
