Impact of COVID-19 on Global Non-GMO Soybean Market

The global non-GMO soybean market has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. The pandemic has caused lockdowns due to which industries are completely or partially closed, which resulted in the disruption of the supply chain of soybeans. Due to a halt in industrial activities, the demand for soybeans was decreased for soybean-based products, especially dietary drinks or powder, which is generally consumed by athletes or fitness-conscious populations. Due to less demand for soybeans, the farmers have faced storage challenges and also experienced losses due to wastage of the crop. Therefore, due to the pandemic, soybean-based product industries, as well as farmers, have faced economic problems. But from the end of 2020, the demand for non-GMO soybeans is again rising, and it is expected that it will continue to grow over the forecast period.
