Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Cocoa Derivatives Market

The COVID-19 pandemic affected economies and industries in various countries. Lockdowns, travel restrictions, and business shutdowns in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), South & Central America (SAM), and the Middle East & Africa (MEA) hampered the growth of several industries, including the food & beverage industry. The shutdown of manufacturing units led to disturbances in global supply chains, manufacturing activities, delivery schedules, and essential and nonessential product sales. Various companies witnessed delays in product deliveries and a slump in sales of their products in 2020. Moreover, the bans imposed by governments of various countries in Europe, Asia Pacific, and North America on international travel compelled companies to temporarily discontinue their collaboration and partnership plans. All these factors hampered various industries in 2020 and early 2021, thereby restraining the growth of various markets.

Changes in socioeconomic situations negatively impacted the consumption pattern of premium products in 2020. The restrictions imposed by governments of several countries in the world during the global crisis caused financial losses for farmers growing cocoa in small yet relevant cocoa-producing countries as the production surpassed the demand in the initial months of the pandemic. This led to a significant decline in the prices of cocoa. According to the International Cocoa Organization (ICCO), in New York, cocoa contract prices averaged ~US$ 2,528 per ton in January 2021, registering a 6% decrease compared to prices in the previous year (US$ 2,675 per ton). Moreover, the shutdown of facilities in the personal care, and food & beverages industries affected the performance of the cocoa derivatives market.

In 2021, several economies resumed operations as governments announced relaxation in the previously imposed restrictions, which boosted the global marketplace. Moreover, manufacturers were permitted to operate at full capacities, which helped them overcome the demand and supply gaps, and other repercussions. As a majority of the global population was fully vaccinated by 2021, the cocoa derivatives manufacturers focused on scaling up production operations to revive their businesses.
