Influence of COVID-19 Outbreak on Lacrosse Industry Development
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in December 2019, the disease has spread to nearly 100 countries around the world, and the World Health Organization has declared it an emergency public health event. The COVID-19 epidemic is infected with a large number of people, and its spread and scope far exceed SARS. At present, the number of confirmed cases in Worldwide has exceeded 27 million. Different industries are affected differently by the epidemic situation. And the COVID-19 epidemic has severely hit the global economy. The World Bank predicts that the global GDP (gross domestic product) will fall by 5.2% in 2020, which is the largest drop since the Second World War.
The impact of the epidemic on the Lacrosse industry will involve all major links and all entities in the industry chain. In order to avoid large-scale population movements and gatherings, various countries have adopted prevention and control measures such as home isolation. More and more cities are entering the first-level response state, strictly isolating measures, strictly prohibiting vehicle entry and exit, strictly controlling the flow of personnel, and strictly preventing the spread of the epidemic. This makes it impossible for non-local employees to return or arrive immediately, the number of employees is insufficient, and normal commuting is also severely frustrated, resulting in a large-scale shutdown of production. The existing raw and auxiliary material reserves cannot meet the needs of normal production, and the raw material inventory of most companies cannot maintain production. The industry\'s start-up load dropped again and again, and market sales dropped sharply. Under the background of the current epidemic situation, both supply and demand will be suppressed, but the impact on consumption will be significantly greater than the supply side. Therefore, the overall weak supply and demand pattern is difficult to reverse. Manufactures has no intention to reduce production for the time being, and consumption is sluggish. Affected by the sluggish demand, manufactures have reduced the output of products.
In addition, the epidemic has also caused a great impact on Lacrosse companies, with production delays and order cancellations. Many lacrosse manufacturers have been unable to fully resume normal operations due to insufficient orders. In order to fight the epidemic, some lacrosse companies have turned to produce medical equipment such as masks, ventilators, goggles and other necessary medical supplies to meet the needs of the epidemic. This will not be conducive to the further development of the lacrosse market to a certain extent. From the perspective of the consumer side, the spread of the epidemic has a significantly greater impact on the consumer side than on the supply side. To prevent and control the epidemic, many countries have closed cities, borders, and ports, and the economy is in a state of suspension. Take the Lacrosse as an example. In order to fight the spread of the COVID-19 epidemic, countries generally adopt measures such as suspension of work and production and home isolation. Because the epidemic will inevitably have a huge impact on the global economy. The economic downturn will reduce the income of most households. Many companies even consider layoffs due to funding issues. The wages of employees have fallen, and people’s disposable income has decreased. Even if people buy lacrosse goods to satisfy their children’s wishes, they will also switch to buying cheaper alternatives. Lacrosse are expensive in terms of price. In the context of the global economic downturn, people\'s purchasing power and willingness to consume will decrease. Although the impact of the epidemic on the Lacrosse market in the short term is inevitable, the specific extent of its impact also depends on the effectiveness of the prevention and control of the COVID-19 epidemic.
