At greatest, it is going to develop 1% in 2020 because the Covid-19 lockdown has crimped demand and severely disrupted commerce channels.

I wouldn’t be stunned if the third quarter delivered related progress to that seen in June,” stated Prasun Basu, South Asia zone president, Nielsen International Join.
