This IDC Perspective looks at the continuing impact on, and implications for, the supply chain as a consequence of COVID-19. "Although most discussions about the supply chain have focused on supply disruptions -- automotive parts factories closing in Wuhan or meatpacking plants closing in the U.S. Midwest -- I worry much more about demand disruptions -- something that I think is not getting enough attention. If demand does not return, the restoration of supply will not matter," says Simon Ellis, program vice president for Supply Chain at IDC.
