Impact of COVID-19 on the Market

The outbreak of the novel coronavirus has resulted in an economic downswing by causing disruptions in the business operations in various sectors. The service industry is one of the hardest hit. There has been observed a reduction in the overall discretionary spending, which posed a temporary challenge for the players operating in the market.

As the coronavirus crisis continued, large cities banned gatherings and asked people to follow social distancing guidelines.

Couples have moved on to live streaming using videoconferencing applications. This led to a major slowdown in the wedding industry, with many couples canceling or postponing their events. Many people who work in wedding industry including photographers and caterers also suffered due to strict norms.

However, with improving situations in the third quarter of 2020, the market saw a slight improvement. It is expected for the market to gain its initial growth in the second quarter of 2021.
