While companies have repeatedly been reported MoM sales gain having resumed business in phased manner since May 2020. With lockdown relaxations, sales activity is now more widespread to ensure that manufacturers have been able to increase production over the past months to meet growing demand.
This bodes well, as the current festive season is traditionally a period that manufacturers rely on considering sales tends to pick up in these couple of weeks. While it’s a tough task to recover sales loss that ensued in end of March and April 2020 as a result of a nationwide lockdown, manufacturers are wise to cash in on sales this festive season if they are to expect even the slightest recovery. With the current quarter coming to a close, one can expect September 2020 sales to maintain momentum.
