On one side, lockdown mandates disrupted the supply chain, and manufacturers faced various problems such as obtaining raw materials & components, attracting workers from quarantines required for the production, and delivering end products to the markets.

The region has some of the most urban and highly populated countries, such as China and India, which influence the market demand.

Other recent developments in the markets of note include:
Uber Technologies Inc. (NYSE: UBER) – The price of Uber rides has spiked as the taxi-hailing app struggles to match soaring demand with a supply of drivers. Data from market research company Edison found that the average cost of a journey had risen by a third since April, from £9 to around £12. Rival operator Bolt has also had higher fares. Uber said the number of drivers on its app had recovered to pre-pandemic levels, but that it was experiencing unprecedented demand as cities reopen.
Public transport usage remains 17pc below pre-pandemic usage, according to Google data, while in London, Uber’s biggest market, it is 30pc below. Under the app’s “dynamic pricing”, the price of rides is adjusted based on demand from passengers and the supply of drivers, a model it says encourages more drivers at peak times and manages supply. Uber has said it plans to increase the number of drivers on the app from 70,000 to around 90,000 by the end of the year.
