During the COVID-19 pandemic, demand for necessities such as personal care goods, restroom supplies, and groceries spiked on B2C e-commerce platforms. However, in the first and second quarters of 2020, the rising prevalence of COVID-19 worldwide prompted governments in several countries to go into complete lockdown, disrupting supply chains and lowering e-commerce revenues. Second, the COVID-19 outbreak had the most significant impact on the United States and China, two significant contributors to e-commerce growth.

Services e-commerce companies, such as those in ride-hailing and tourism, saw their GMV (Gross Merchandise Volume) decline, putting them behind their competitors in the rankings of top business-to-consumer e-commerce companies.
