Opportunity: Increasing popularity of online sales channels for baby care products
The online consumer goods platforms, such as Shopify, Amazon, and Takealot.com, are increasingly becoming primary distribution channels for baby care products in South Africa. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the growth of online sales channels owing to the shortage of crucial baby care products, such as diapers, in local stores. Furthermore, online platforms offer access to a wide range of products and provide home deliveries with contactless payment, which are deemed safer now post the COVID-19 pandemic period.
