YouGov 2021 International FMCG/CPG report: Consumer Goods in Crisis reveals changes in FMCG/FMCG consumption in Singapore since the pandemic. Two of five (38%) of Singaporeans say they have purchased groceries or household necessities through an online supermarket, and more than two in five (46%) have done so in April 2021. Nearly two-thirds (63%) agree that they will shop more online - a sentiment particularly echoed by younger shoppers (aged 18-34) with seven in ten (69%) agreeing with this statement.
