FMCG Industry Business Confidence Report 2020

Globally, the existing economic environment is stable for the FMCG industry, as stated by 49% of respondents. Meanwhile, 22% felt that current economic conditions were favorable for the FMCG industry. The recent global COVID-19 pandemic has affected the entire global economy, including the FMCG sector.
