What is the impact of China’s Zero-COVID lockdowns on economic activity, consumer goods and the foodservice industry?

While wanting to protect the country from being overwhelmed by Omicron, China’s adherence to a Zero-COVID policy is resulting in a significant economic downturn. COVID outbreaks in Shanghai, Beijing and many other Chinese cities will impact 2022’s economic growth as consumers and businesses experience rolling lockdowns, leading to a slowdown in domestic and international supply chains. China’s Zero-COVID policy is having a demonstrable impact on consumer-facing industries. Access GlobalData’s new whitepaper, China in 2022: the impact of China’s Zero-COVID lockdowns on economic activity, consumer goods and the foodservice industry, to examine the current situation in Shanghai and other cities in China, to better understand the worst-affected industry sectors, foodservice in particular, and to explore potential growth opportunities as China recovers.

  • What is the effect of lockdowns on Chinese ports?

According to the data, M&A activity in the three months to the end of March was strongest in the US, which saw a total of four deals announced. That’s an increase on the three transactions during the previous quarter (Q4 2021).

France also performed well in the most recent quarter, with two deals – up from one in the closing three months of last year.

As well as being the top location for M&A deals in beverages, the US also boasted the largest uptick in recent months. The country has seen 28 deals announced over the last two quarters, up from an average of just 13 deals every six months between 2019 and 2021. The level represents the largest increase in deals in beverages for any country.

Ethiopia, meanwhile, was home to one deal in the quarter, the country's second since 2019. This is compared to an average of zero transactions announced every six months between 2019 and 2021. Though an improvement, it's still the smallest increase in drinks M&A deals experienced by any country in recent months.

Globally, the situation is mixed for M&A in beverages. A total of 22 deals were announced over the last quarter, down from 29 in the previous quarter but up from a quarterly average of 17 over the previous three years.

GlobalData tracks the performance and activities of around 675,000 companies in over 200 countries around the world. The data analytics firm's deals database includes the details of approximately 1m deals, ranging from M&A to venture capital financing, equity offerings and debt offerings.
