Powerful economies such as Japan and South Korea felt the disruption that the pandemic caused. For instance, the pandemic led the Japanese economy to contract by 29% on an annualized basis. In December 2020, real wages fell for the 10th consecutive month, reaching their worst level. Exports initially dropped 11.1%, their lowest since 2012, following China’s contraction at the beginning of 2020, and accounted for roughly half of last year’s economic contraction.

The shutdown of various plants and factories affected the global supply chains and negatively impacted the manufacturing, delivery schedules, and sales of products in the global market. A few companies have already announced possible delays in product deliveries and slump in future sales of their products.
