The demand from essential businesses in foodservice and medical fields is expected to keep major wholesalers in full operation. The medical sector’s three major suppliers are McKesson Corporation, AmerisourceBergen Corporation, and Cardinal Health. Such operations have actually benefited from the surge in global demand for medical supplies. However, even these large companies have limited supply, which makes it difficult to meet such high demand.
The pandemic has also been a boon to tele-medicine operations, which may spur a revolution in the technology…and, subsequently, a systemic transition from conventional brick-and-mortar healthcare. Meanwhile, the drastic increase in tele-commuting (and remote work) due to social distancing requirements translate to augmented usage of telecom and streaming / hosting / data-storage services…which may catalyze another paradigm shift.
