Reverse Urbanization - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Consumer Behavior Impact
Published: July 3, 2020 Content info: 16 Pages

"Reverse Urbanization - Coronavirus (COVID-19) Consumer Behavior Impact" identifies the structural changes taking place as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The public health emergency has challenged the need for offices and workspaces, leading to demand for a "rural renaissance" as people consider alternatives to dense urban living. Attitudes are changing as consumers place a greater emphasis on self-sufficiency, independence, and the local community.

Reverse urbanization is a concept of urban decline in favor of rural living. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, surges in demand for suburban and rural living have spiked as remote working negates the need for physical office space. As the work-life balance changes, consumption behavior and occasions will also be impacted over the coming years.


  • A significant number of consumers are buying more of certain products than they used to before the pandemic.
  • Over three quarters of consumers prefer local products over those imported from overseas.
  • In the short to medium term, foodservice will decrease in importance as consumers eat at home. The industry faces many challenges in adapting operations in favor of on-the-go and delivery options.
