At the outset of 2022, it seemed reasonable for businesses to anticipate a return to the pre-pandemic economy. But the prominent economic and world events that were experienced in the first quarter of the year proved that the impact of the pandemic will have a lasting effect on consumers, as new disruptive events have introduced increased uncertainty and market volatility.
With the introduction of new challenges and continued market volatility, retailers and CPGs must understand the influence that economic and world events will have on their business and incorporate the impact into their strategic planning for 2022 and beyond.
