Impact of COVID-19 on the Bakery Cases Market
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the food service industry, particularly affecting well-established restaurant and coffee chains, leading to a decline in business. These establishments are currently facing financial constraints, limiting their discretionary spending. As a result, the end-use industry, including bakery cases, is experiencing reduced sales. The economic downturn has created temporary challenges for players in the bakery cases market. Additionally, manufacturers in this industry must adhere to regulatory standards such as ISO 9001 and ETL Safety and Sanitation requirements, creating barriers for new entrants. These combined factors underscore the current difficulties faced by businesses in the bakery cases market due to the pandemic and regulatory constraints.
