COVID-19 Impact

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the textile industries was highly impacted. Most of the manufacturing plants were shut down, which declined the production of Clothes. Also due to supply chain disruptions such as raw material delays or non-arrival, disrupted financial flows, and rising absenteeism among production line staff, OEMs have been forced to function at zero or partial capacity, resulting in lower demand and consumption for Islamic Clothes. However, people are shopping online and ordering merchandise online to pick up in person, around the world. This trend is expected to continue. COVID-19 lockdowns also have led to an uptick in first-time e-commerce shoppers. For Manufacturers, the trends and the dramatic drop in sales will contribute to substantial retail overcapacity. It will lead companies to adopt a new shape of P&L, accelerate the shift to digital and omni channel distribution and recover the small economic disruption.
