Looking Back (A Brief Industry Overview)
The retail sector had placed its expectations on 2022 being a return to something resembling normal routine after the pandemic-driven disruption of 2020 and 2021. But in addition to the problems caused by the epidemic, new ones have emerged due to an insecure geopolitical climate and dramatic increases in living expenses.
Food and commodity prices skyrocketed in 2022 due to heightened global instability and uncertainty, a worldwide energy crisis, and fuel shortages. All of this has caused inflationary pressures that have never before been felt by consumers worldwide.
The development of the e-commerce industry and its tendencies internationally have been significantly impacted by these global megashifts. The IMF predicted inflation and uncertainty. As such, with high levels of inflation set to continue now, consumers and businesses alike, across the globe will feel the pinch.
