Impact of COVID-19 on Saudi Arabia's E-Commerce Industry:

The global retail sector, particularly the brick-and-mortar model, has been severely impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak and lockdown. Nonetheless, e-commerce is one of the few industries that has seen a growth in consumer transactions in various areas. Saudi Arabia is following the same pattern.

Multiple companies in the region were compelled to react to changing customer priorities due to the commercial slowdown and nationwide lockdown. As a result, Saudi Arabia's e-commerce business segments had substantial growth as internet shopping and retailing became the new approach under these circumstances.

The surge in users of social media and smartphones, for example, has fuelled demand for online purchasing and commerce.

Moreover, several fashion firms plan to extend their presence in the Saudi Arabian market. In March 2022, for example, announced the opening of its new 45,000m2 Customer Fulfilment Centre in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. This will allow them to transport their items quickly around the country.
