It's fair to say that everyone had a little more spare time than usual over the last 12 months.
With several lockdowns, work from home rules and people just generally wanting to embrace the anti-social life, there was one product that saw a huge surge in demand.
Condom makers Karex Bhd has said that sales of the contraceptive rose staggeringly in the last year.
Sales of Durex rose 30 per cent in 2021, which account for 60 per cent of the company's entire revenue last year.
Chief executive officer Goh Miah Kiat said, on Friday: “When there was a 40 per cent drop in terms of global consumption, Karex's consumer segment has continued to grow. This year, I expect the demand to recover to pre-pandemic times.
“Sales value could increase even more as consumers are buying more premium products. We're starting to see a lot of orders coming in on an emergency basis.”
