The study had selected April 2020 to March 2021 as a COVID19 period and April 2019 to March 2020 as the last period; for comparison study had selected the Fathenager eNAM market as a sample. The particular research had applied the CARG model to evaluate the growth of eNAM markets, whereas for hypothesis testing implemented Chi-square test. eNAM had significantly increased growth by 84.8% in the last four years by integrating 1000 APMC markets with the eNAM platform.
